Excellent in many aspects!”

I visited Kyoto for the second time after 20 years. Grand Prince Hotel is right across the Kyoto International Convention Center where my meeting was held so it was an excellent choice location wise. A very tranquil environment to stay. Service was great. It's good to have both Western and Japanese style breakfast in the same place. Staff was extremely professional and helpful when I had issue with my flight back to the U.S. Perhaps the only thing I wish the hotel had is a gym. Other than that, excellent!

Not suitable for all travelers. ”

I was shocked that the Grand Prince Hotel serves shark fin soup. Shark fin is a species that is banned in many countries due to their endangered status. Worse still, the restaurants have almost no food for vegetarians. I fail to see how any hotel could be so disrespectful of guests to not have any vegetarian options available. The staff are very respectful of guests and the rooms quite nice, but the area is a virtual food desert for vegetarians, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone concerned for the environment no matter how nice the staff are.

Grand Prince Hotel, Kyoto, Japan”

Location, room size, quality of staff, internet access, cleanliness of Hotel.

I enjoyed my stay at the Grand Prince and the room enabled me to conduct my afterhours work very efficiently. The environment is very enjoyable and a walk around the lake and in the general area very refreshing. This is not a 'down town' hotel but the taxi service into the City shopping is excellent. Kyoto is a beautiful city embraced by wooded mountains.

Ideal location for conference facilities”

We found the Grand Prince Hotel Kyoto location excellent for attendance at the Kyoto conference centre opposite. For general sight seeing better options are available in Kyoto City itself. The Hotel was to an excellent standard. Breakfast was a problem for us as we started at 6.45am and could not have breakfast earlier at the hotel so we purchased breakfast provisions from a nearby hotel. On the first night we could not secure a booking in the hotel restaurants as they were fully booked out so walked down to the main street and went to a restaurant there. The hotel pricing increased during the period of the conference so were disappointed with that. We stayed an extra 3 nights in Kyoto but chose to stay at a more centrally located hotel. Although the Grand Prince Hotel had reduced accommodation prices dramatically post conference we chose to stay elsewhere, as felt ripped off by the hotel during the conference and was disappointed from that perspective.

High-end hotel, but very limited facilities”

Stay here if you need to be near the Kyoto International Conference Center. For this it is extremely convenient, as from anywhere else you need to travel a lot. It is a nice high-end hotel, surrounded by amazing greenery, rare in Japan, great jogging in the park with a lake, etc. But the hotel itself is nothing more, no gym, no pool, no other services. Not worth paying a penny for the Executive Lounge - it is nice, but it offers almost nothing except drinks in the evening. It was always empty, noone uses it. It is also bizarre that in a 4* international hotel next to an International Conference Centre where major international treaties have been negotiated, there are NO ENGLISH TV CHANNELS, except for one that is mostly devoted to promoting Japan. No BBC, no CNN, etc... Otherwise nice big rooms (unlike rest of Japan), superb views, nice breakfast.

A generic hotel.”

By Japanese standards, large rooms, green surroundings, breakfast above average.

The hotel itself is a very typical 1980s' Japanese representation of sophistication; which is to say, rather dated now. The real test of the standard of a Japanese hotel is the breakfast. It is mostly created to suit kids and Japanese old men and good coffee is hard to find. In fact I have had appalling coffee very often. So bad, in fact, it is hard to imagine how it could be so bad. But by this standard the Grand Prince was above average. Sadly, my other demand is a quiet night and that I failed to have. Either I was near some working area or my neighbours had brought dumbbells and were throwing them around until well after midnight. The rooms are large in a country where rooms are mostly pokey. The green surroundings are nice, since in Japan you are never far from concrete, and sometimes overwhelmed by it ... and this is much the same for the purportedly beautiful city of Kyoto, which is sadly mostly a dump with a few nice bits sprinkled here and there. But for those who don't notice the ugliness, the hotel is only a 15 minute subway ride away.

Grand Prince Hotel Kyoto”

Fresh, clean, comfortable, friendly service. English no problem. Close to station. Edge of town, you feel like you are in the country. Nice walks close by. Great breakfast buffet. Very good (but not cheap) Japanese restarant. Interesting building
Not cheap, but good value. Internet available for you lap top in room at extra cost.

Interior design looks a bit like a wedding cake, and obviously caters to lots of weddings, but that is quite nice too. Our room was large and comfortable even with and extra bed for our daughter. The beds very comfortable. Very clean. Fantastic view of forest from our large window. Very handy to rail. Staff go out of their way to be helpful and able to cope with English speakers. Loved the food, comprehensive buffet breakfast, western and Japanese available. Interesting fellow guests, mostly weddings, other tourists (mostly Japnaese) and people attending the Kyoto confrence center across the road. Calm and relaxed atmosphere, large lake with pleasent walks and comunity activities across the road. Loved it.

It's outside the every day tourism spots, but there were bus services and other means to get to the sites around Kyoto. We got the rooms at a discounted rate, but wow the rooms and the area around the hotel are great for those who would like a quiet retreat morning after spending a busy day and night in the city. There is a small pond with walking trails around it for a leisurely morning hike.

Good hotel but a little remote”

We arrived at the hotel at 2 pm and were informed that check in was 3 pm and we were just left to our own devices for an hour. I believe that the hotel should have an area where customers could make themselves a cup of tea or coffee while waiting. There should also be tour maps and brochures in English available and staff should also have an understanding of English as it was a little difficult to communicate. However our room was upgraded which was appreciated and the room had a great view of the gardens and was clean and well laid out. The location of the hotel is a little remote being at the end of the railway line at Kokusai Kaikan Station, however the signage was good and there is a covered walkway to the hotel. The breakfast was excellent and each day an English Japan newspaper was delivered to our room. It was a good base for exploring Kyoto. Also note that there is a 200 JPY Kyoto City Tax for accommodation costing under 20,000 JPY per night.

Cleanliness, friendliness, helpfulness.

We speak English as our native language and had little trouble understanding and being understood by the hotel staff. They were all very friendly and always ready to be of assistance. The rooms were as large as hotel rooms in America so we were quite pleased with the whole experience. The restaurants were extremely high priced though. You should be aware of that but other options are within walking distance. The beds are very firm but comfortable and the bathrooms are large. You get a full size bottle of shampoo and conditioner and body soap so need to bring it from home. Would do again!!!!
