    Amazing location right opposite kyoto station yet so well-priced. I didn't get the breakfast but there's easily food to buy at the station or at the places of interest. Staff seems more used to business travellers, but it's fine with me and they are very efficient. I get a good view of the kyoto station as well, and room is big for japan hotels.

    Wow! Staying at this iconic hotel was my dream and i made it happen this trip. it was indeed a wonderful stay. Except for one lady who helped check me in, the other staff were very sincere and helpful. I love how convenient the hotel is and how spacious my room was! Furnishing is a little dated but overall clean. Guests also get to use the public bath for a discounted fee, as well as go up the observatory at a discounted fee! The public bath is really small and crowded though. I wouldnt return, but nice for those who want a quick public bath experience.

    The Best 3-4 Star Hotel In Kyoto”

    I stayed at the Kyoto Tower Hotel to to visit some of the best attractions Kyoto Japan has to offer. The experience was amazing complemented by the great facilities and staffs of this hotel. The location is so perfect since this hotel is less than a 100 meter away from the train and bus stations. The free food they offer for breakfast is very good. The hotel is also located near the shopping commercial district. I had a great experience and for sure will be coming back to this hotel.

    Just near the Kyoto station, a lot of restaurant in this area, can visit the Kyoto Tower at night, but recommended in the morning, cause you can easily to identification the land mark! I'll still choose Kyoto Tower Hotel when I visit Kyoto next time.

    Agoda made this extraordinary lodging possible for us. We arrived by train, walked across the square to our deluxe hotel. The eighth floor offered a view, including one of a typhoon! We were safe and secure here. Everything was neat and clean. The staff was pleasant and informative. Great stay!

    Great service, great location”

    I was surprised by how much I enjoyed my stay here. I expected it to be average, but the service was great. I arrived at 12:30 but check-in was at 2:00, so I left my luggage and went for lunch. When I got back at 2:00, my room was ready and my luggage was in the room already. That was a nice touch! Kyoto Tower is located right across from the main Kyoto Station, so I just got off Shinkansen, crossed the street, and was there! It was a hot day, 38 degrees (about 100 Fahrenheit) and I’m so glad I picked this hotel for its convenient access from the train. The lobby is on the 8th floor, that’s one quirk you should be aware of. Go up, check in, and you’re all set. They also give discount tickets to go up Kyoto Tower, which is above the hotel, and to the public bath in the basement level. Both are well worth the cost of ¥400 ( about $4USD).

    Friendly staff at a strategically located hotel”

    On our overnight stay in Kyoto we chose this hotel for its strategic location and fair price. It is an aging hotel but facilities are maintained. Our room was spacious which is a nice change compare to other small spaced hotels. There is a public bath and observation tower you can enter for a discounted price if you are a guest. Since it is close to Kyoto station it is easy to access points of interests. The staff are very helpful and friendly, they speak fluent English too which was very helpful. They also have a tourist information office on one of the floors where you can get a lot of information on Kyoto. We used the service to ask about kimono rental and how to get to Arashiyama.

    Nice location but...”

    This hotel is located just a stone throw away from the Kyoto Station. It is near to food places and Yodabashi. There is a Starbucks and a Macdonalds within 2 minutes of walking. There is also a supermarket nearby in the basement floor of the shopping mall. Hotel guests can access to the Kyoto Tower for a discounted pricing. However, there is renovation going on at the outside of the hotel ground floor. Noise and going to the right entrance might be a bit tricky for some.

    So near to the Kyoto Station”

    Can't beat this hotel for the convenience of being near to the Kyoto Station, which I reckon is the heart of Kyoto. Everything starts from here, the shinkansen train, the local subway, the buses taking you around the many world heritage sites and the place is loaded with restaurants all within short walking distance. The rooms are decent and clean and looks like it was renovated. This is my second stay at this hotel and I would come back again if I am ever back in Kyoto.

Also hub for bus station. We bought daily pass of 500 yen to travel around Kyoto attractions. Special offer of 300 yen to enter Kyoto Tower reservation desk to have 360 degree view. Hundreds of shops and restaurants nearby. There is a Starbucks and drugs store 1 min away from the tower. For those who have budget, highly recommended hotel to stay!
