      Very Pleasant Hotel and Staff”

      The Hotel is very pleasant, the location close from the Imperial Palace is good, and if you plan to visit Kyoto by bicycle, no need to look for a rental place, they have what you need. I visit Kyoto in 3 days with bicycle going to Arashiyama, Golden temple, Gion and other places without any difficulty. The Hotel is very clean, the room are comfortable and the staff always ready to help. The breakfast is good and there is more than enough choices.

      Best for Business traveler with short stay within Kyoto City”

      They do have Onsen (Japanese Hot Spring) which customer can enjoy that during that with reasonable price. Actually, you will see several hotels, but this one doesn't occupy during summer from my perspective, nice in all.

      Dirty washer machine, 4 stops from Kyoto station”

      I book this hotel because it is one of the few left with a washer and dryer coin laundry. When I went to the laundry room, the dust bags in the washers were filled with much dust so I didn't use them in the end. Dryer was about 8kg big fyi. Upon reading the reviews about how friendly the staff were, I have to disagree - I find them not sincere though they looked smiley. Especially the male staff who speaks fluent English with American accent!! I asked him to help me to book an imperial garden ticket for me, which without even checking, he just told me it should be fully booked for the month. 2 days later, I went to Kyoto Tower Tourist Information Centre and when the staff went online to check for me, there was availability 2 days later and otherr days!! Should the hotel staff been professional enough to check for me, I would have been able to visit the imperial garden. In the end, I couldn't visit as I'd to check out of Kyoto.

      Wonderful in almost every way.”

      Ideal location, a quiet area across from the Imperial Garden and a short walk to the subway, also walking distance to Doshisha University. Cultural landmarks all around (e.g., birthplace of the great 9th century statesman Michizane.) Friendly, helpful, multinational staff (Japan, Syria, Myanmar, Nepal, etc.). Library. Communal kitchen. Very quiet. The building could use some cosmetic renovations, the lobby furniture could be more comfortable, and the room was a bit cramped. Otherwise ideal.

      I stayed just one night at twin room for business trip. I was very satisfied staying this hotel with their price. I had very nice service from reception staff. Clean room, convenience location to take subway and city bus to anywhere in Kyoto city. I will stay this hotel again as I come to Kyoto again either business or pleasure.

      Value for money, location and friendly staffs.

      This hotel is the most spacious i have been in Japan. Very good value for the money. All staffs are very helpful and friendly too. They can speak good english hence very helpful in giving guide for tourist like us. Apart from that, the location of hotel is very close to subway and also convenience store like 7 eleven. Would definitely choose The Palace Side Hotel again.

      Will recommend for the hotel to change all their doors. It's the old wooden door, don't feel so safe. And the room is pretty dim, more lights especially at the doorway please. But other than that i had a pleasant stay
