Best Japanese style accomodation we stayed at”

Comfortable modern Japanese style accommodation Friendly Helpful staff Onsen (Hot Japanese communal baths, men and women separate) Clean and secure Very close to transport Western style Bathrooms Coin Laundry Microwave & fridge Breakfast options include western and delivered to door at agreed time (never late)
Vending machines limited choices (but there are others / plenty outside) Western Breakfast option may not suit all (if fussy eaters) as it is Japanese Bento box style with sandwiches and a heat-able mini quiche and mini sausages

My family comprising of 4 adults found the Kyoto Village very comfortable and we agreed that this was the best accommodation we stayed at in our Japan holiday. We recommend this hotel for Japanese style accommodation. For those people who are unsure of trying Japanese style hotels the Kyoto Village will not let them down. This hotel is ideal for families who are looking for accommodation in Kyoto. Close to 2 Subways, buses to tourist areas pass the front door, taxis out the front Walk down the street to many shops and eateries Only down side was that there was not a JR station nearby but the two subways took you to JR stations. However we found that a taxi for 4 to Kyoto Station was barely above the flag fall and therefore not much more than 4 subway tickets anyway.

Very comfortable stay in Kyoto Village Hotel”

Great location, big rooms and English speaking staff at the reception

We came from a 4-day stay in Osaka (took the train from Osaka to Kyoto). We arrived in Kyoto in the afternoon and found Hotel Village Kyoto just a few minutes walk across the train station. We, of course had to ask a few people on the street for directions but there was also a police station near by that directed us to the hotel. The room we got was a Japanese style room for 3 pax and it was a good size for a hotel in Japan! We fit comfortably with all 3 of our luggage. My 14 year old son enjoyed the Japanese style beds on the floor and we all enjoyed the VOD (video on demand) room offer (for 1000 Yen), relaxing and watching movies late at night after a full day of touring. The hotel front desk staff (her name Amara) was very helpful in helping us with our itinerary for the day. Giving us helpful tips in what to see and how to get there. Although the only down side is that there is no wifi available in the rooms. We had to go to the lobby to get online. All in all, a great and very comfortable stay in Kyoto!

Awesome!”

Great location: 2 blocks from Train & Randem line. Surrounded by Family Mart & 7-Eleven. Restaurants nearby. Japanese executive room were perfect for family of 5 (Grandma + 2 kids under 10). We got the breakfast & it was the Best decision Ever!!! Everyday was a different Japanese Bento, you get the local flavors & it was So much food that we just need to get a late afternoon snack - to hold us over till dinner. The best part was the public bath - which is included in the price! It was awesome to relax after a Long day of walking! Never seen my kids SO excited to take a bath Everyday! LOL!!! Be advised, you are Not allow to use the public bath IF you have a tatoo. When we asked the kids what was the best part of the Kyoto trip, it would be 1) Monkey Park & 2) Village Kyoto! We will definately be back there!

Second time at this wonderful hotel”

This was my second time in 2 years travelling to Japan - Osaka and Kyoto - and I couldn't think of a better hotel to stay at. The hotel is conveniently located near a train station, and it is also accessible by bus. In fact, you can travel to most tourist destination in Kyoto via bus at the bus stops near the hotel - this is one of the reasons why I enjoy staying at this hotel. The rooms are Japanese-style rooms with a modern touch. The rooms are clean and spacious enough for 4 adults, and the futons and beddings are exceptionally comfortable. The is also an indoor onsen in the hotel which is open throughout the night. The only downside to this hotel is that the TV does not have any international channels, so you may need to depend on your phones / iPads to watch international shows. I hope the hotel look into this feedback and provides international channels like HBO for travellers in future. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kyoto.

Japanese-style room, fun and cozy”

Modern design, japanese-style rooms and spa for guests, free japanese-style breakfast delivered in the morning

Hotel Village Kyoto is a modern hotel, located somewhat centrally in Kyoto. The city's train system as a whole is a bit inefficient, so bus lines were the best way to navigate to and from the hotel. The staff is friendly and efficient. The room was unique - a tatami floor with two zebra print chairs that fold into beds. When you're ready to sleep, all the bedding is in the closet and you make up your own bed. My friend and I both were pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the beds were. TV is free but movies on demand cost a one-time fee of 1,000 yen (~$10). There is a japanese-style public bath for guests on the first floor, but each room has its own decently-sized bathroom and tub. For breakfast you can choose one of three options and it will be delivered to your room at the time of your choosing - a free perk! The room also had a nice guide showing the bus lines nearby and which attractions they'd take you to. All in all, it was a great stay and value for two weekend visitors.

Our stay in Hotel Village Kyoto was fantastic, it was a real insight into Japanese culture. The staff could not of been more friendly, and enjoyed talking to my young children.

The Village”

Close to downtown Kyoto, great value for money, well equipped rooms, great style rooms.
Omiya subway station is a little tricky to get to.

We stayed at Hotel Village Kyoto for 5 nights in their smallest room. That being said, we had more than enough room and the beds were super comfy. The room itself was really cute. We never ate the breakfast, it wasn't overly impressive. The bathroom was nice and the public bath was really relaxing (apart from the public nudity, I didn't dig it). The best way to get to the Hotel is to make your way to Omiya subway station from Kyoto, then when you get to street level walk towards the 7/11, continue past the 7/11 on the main street and you'll find the hotel on your right directly opposite the Family Mart.

location, comforable large room, nice Ofuro.

The location is superb, close to the train station, you can come here directly from Osaka without changing to another station, the hotel is just located 2 minutes walk away from the station. The Rendan train (which will take you to Arashiyama, the bamboo forest) is located just opposite to the hotel. Post office 5 minutes walk away, a few convenient stores are around the hotel. Not many restaurants around to choose from, there are some small ramen places. The room, though, was amazingly big for 4 of us. The futons were comfortable, the room large enough for 4 people, with small shower and toilet separated within the room. They deliver your preferred choice of breakfast at your preferred time (the choice was western or Japanese breakast) to your room. They also have bicycles for rental (I found this very convenient) you could ride to everywhere nearby, we took our bicycle to Gion, Pontocho, to the castles and back. Kyoto is small, you could visit everywhere with bicycle, highly recommended to rent one. make sure you reserve to rent one the night before, sometimes they do run out of bicycles for rent.

Great location on bus routes to major attractions, helpful staff, nice decor, well maintained, large well maintained public bath
None.

This is the best place I have stayed in in Kyoto - and I've been there many times. It is relatively new. The decor is tasteful, and the place is well maintained throughout. The rooms, though small by western standards, are fine by Japanese standards. Bedding is very comfortable, and those unfamiliar with futons are shown how to set out the bedding. There is a choice of boxed breakfasts - Japanese style breakfast or sandwiches. Tea and coffee are provided in the room. There is a fridge. a kettle and a microwave in the room. There is a convenience store on the corner to buy snacks. The location is great- about 30 minutes walk from the station, next to a subway station and to several bus stops. It is an easy walk or bus ride - straight along the man road - to Yasaka jinja and a bus shopping area. One useful item might be to provide a list of buses to the main tourist attractions - staff are helpful and give the information when asked but a list would be useful for newcomers to Kyoto.

Hotel Village Kyoto stay May 2009”

The Village hotel public baths were wonderful. The entrance and lobby were nicely done. Good location to local train access. Breakfast was always brought to our room on time, or early. The beds were comfortable. The laundry facility on the 6th floor was a nice touch.
Since it is a new hotel (7 months) the taxi cab drivers didn't know its location so I provided the driver a map location. Written instruction on how to run the air conditioner remote control would have been helpful.

We stay 3 nights at the Hotel Village in Kyoto the end of May 2009. The room we had was a Japanese style for 5 people and there were three of us. The futon beds and bedding made for a good nights rest. We especially enjoyed the splendor of the public baths which were beautifully done. During our stay we took advantage of the laundry facilities. We would stay at this hotel again. It was reasonably prices. FYI - The cab ride from the train station was about 1,100 yen

This hotel was very clean and extremely convenient to trains. The staff organized our room exactly to our request on the Agoda order...with the specific amount of tatami mats for our family. Although it may not be an "official" privately owned Ryokan in a house, this small hotel-version was perfect and we loved it! We really enjoyed the indoor onsen - very clean and very hot. The complimentary Japanese breakfast was delivered on time to our room and I was impressed. If you do not want to have a Japanese breakfast, they have an international option too. We only had 2 days (1 night) in Kyoto and wished we had a longer visit. It is a charming town. We especially enjoyed our sunset walk along the river and our walk through Gion in the early evening...and, yes, we did see a few Geisha!

Hotel Village Kyoto”

location, price, internet
slippers and robes too small for foreigners

The hotel was only 1000 yen taxi from Kyoto main train station. Once we got our bearings we found 2 train stations within a block so good for getting around. Fun to walk around the streets just exploring and a reasonably short walk to some of the major sights. There are good restauraunts in the area - favorite for lunch or dinner is spicy noodles and pork - exit hotel and turn right and go down a block or two. Lots of grocery stores and a seven eleven with an ATM that services overseas bank cards. Room is clean and fun, enough room for 3 of us, love the heated mirror, fast free internet, breakfast was good and staff were friendly and helpful. Did not try the communal baths.

Nice stop in Kyoto”

Pros - room was small but comfortable. Some wear and tear on the furniture is evident, but rooms are kept clean. Public bath on 1/F was nice. Location is very convenient for tourists, very close to the Randen station and Hankyu line to Osaka. Not on the main Kyoto subway lines, but the front desk sells bus passes, which we thought was an easier way to get around Kyoto with small kids. Plenty of restaurants and convenience stores around. Cons - no restaurant and front desk is not 24 hours. Not that convenient to Kyoto main station if that matters to you. Overall, I recommend this hotel and would consider staying again if I was travelling in Kyoto with young kids.

Comfortable, affordable ryokan living”

Comfortable mattresses provided, clean facilities, extremely friendly and fast service

It was the first time living in a Japanese style room, it was vety authentic, loved the tatamis(mattresses) provided as they were very comfortable. The hot bath was clean and it was relaxing to head there every night to have a good soak after a long day of walking. However, wifi is only available in the lobby which can be quite troublesome. Breakfasts, although there are 3 different sets to choose from, is the same everyday so by the 3rd day there we had to buy our own breakfasts. Location is good as it is near to many bus stops and the Hankyu Omiya station(2 mins walk) elevators are located slightly further away if you don't want to use the stairs. But if we don't want to change trains to get to the other line(going to Kyoto station etc), the nearest station is karasuma station which is about a 15-20 min walk away. Near several shopping arcades and very near Nijo castle if you want to walk(15 mins). Overall a very comfortable and good experience, service was good and everyone there was very friendly!
