Stayed 5 nights in December 2016

Very nice hotel, but food service might disappoint some who are not crazy about Japanese food.”

My husband and I stayed at the Kyoto Century Hotel for 5 nights as tourists. We opted for one of the less expensive rooms on one of the upper floors. It still was fairly expensive, but fairly priced considering the excellent location of the hotel right next to the Kyoto Station. Our room was small by American standards, but it held 2 very comfortable double beds. The bathroom was super clean and adequate in size. The only thing lacking were decent sized closets and drawers for our clothes. Those 2 items would not matter for someone staying only one night. But since we were staying 5 nights, we would have appreciated a little more storage space. The employees of the hotel were wonderful. Our only really complaint was that all their restaurants served only Asian food for dinner and lunch. There were nights we felt like staying in and eating at the hotel, but we were turned off by the thought of paying in excess of $50 a person for meals we were quite sure we weren't going to like. Fortunately the breakfast, which we had opted to pay for when booking our room, had plenty of choices that even people who are not real fans of Japanese food could enjoy. The choices were really amazing covering everything from the makings for green salads, to yogurt with delicious sauces to Japanese versions of what was supposed to be French toast to ice cream. There were also many reasonably priced restaurants in Kyoto Station.

Our new standard-Amazing”

Kyoto Century Hotel is simply amazing. The friendliness of the staff was fantastic. Everything from the staff-the clean room-and in room amenities were fantastic. Location cannot be beat in any city! We did not try the breakfast (seemed a little pricey)-we just went to the iSetan or the Family Marts (across the street at the Kyoto Train Station). In room--the beds were very comfortable and there were 2 types of pillows (hard and soft). The provided bathroom toiletries were useful and not of the cheap (one thing does all) type. There was a smartphone device that is free to use (however, we did not use it). I am very happy we stayed here (and a great price-better than a 3star in Tokyo). The only problem is--now I want all my hotels to be this wonderful.

Great value for money, convenient and comfortable”

We are a family travelling with 4 young children. We got the new grand comfort deluxe twin rooms, stayed for 6 nights. Comfort and convenience was our priority. This hotel offered us just what we needed. The beds and pillows were exceptionally good quality, providing us restful sleep. Shopping and restaurants were just a few steps away. When asked, our children unanimously answered that Kyoto Century Hotel was one of the places they missed most. On some afternoons, they would rather stay and play in the room. I'd say, that spoke enough.

Impressed”

Stayed for 3 nights. Location was excellent - you see it on your right the moment you step out of Kyoto station, where there is also a public bus terminal; you may take the buses for sightseeing. Hotel staff were friendly and approachable. Would like to make a special mention to staff 田中 who assisted us in the check-in and check-out processes swiftly. Room was relatively spacious (according to Japanese standards), very clean and I especially like it that bath and toilet are separated. Bed was comfortable and amenities in the room were of standard. Hotel breakfast did not disappoint, so do consider adding that into your booking. Overall I will choose to stay in Kyoto Century the next time I return to Kyoto.

Had a lovely 3 night stay at Kyoto Century Hotel. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The location of the hotel is about a 3 min walk from the station and very easy to get around the city area as buses and trains are close by. Our room which was a standard double was just the right size for 2 people and was cleaned each day. Would recommend and would stay here again.

Old world style hotel.”

The Century hotel Kyoto is located adjacent to the very busy Kyoto train station. The ambience is old world luxury. The buffet breakfast has a huge choice and is excellent. Our room was well designed and comfortable if a little on the small side. The bed was very comfortable. The sounds from overhead rooms was quite disturbing at times. It has to be mentioned that we had renovation building works right outside the window. It's a big job finishing in 2019. They are trying to keep the noise to office hours, but the workers start earlier.

The buffet was great as they had an indicator to what ingredients were in the dishes (we do not consume pork or alcohol). The location is spot on just 1 minute walk from Kyoto station which adjoins Isetan. It is also in front of Kyoto tower. Will definitely stay here again 💯

Convenient centralized location business hotel”

Love the location near Kyoto train station even though it is not near any touristy area, but if you need to take a train to somewhere else later, this is a good hotel to stay. And my deluxe double room was surprisingly spacious and luxuriously decorated. For the agoda price, it was a great deal and a very comfortable stay. Friendly and helpful staff, even booked restaurants ahead for me per my requesr. But this is Japan known for great service and polite hotel staff so I can't ask for any better than this. Will stay there again if I visit Kyoto again.

Great Hotel in the perfect central location”

Stayed here for one night on a 2 day explore of Kyoto. The Hotel was in the perfect location, just next to Kyoto main train station. I had a standard twin and the room was beautiful, clean and a good size with a lovely view over Kyoto. We arrived early in the morning and staff let us check our luggage in while we explored the temples around Kyoto. We arrived back to the hotel in the evening and they had taken our bags up to the room for us which is a nice touch. The next day we checked out early and left our bags with them until 8pm which was a great help. Their bar shuts early unfortunately (11:30pm) and doesn't have wi-fi which is a shame. Drinks were a tad expensive, all 1000yen up but it's worth popping in for a Hibiki 17 on the rocks to soak in the ambiance. Overall it was definitely worth the £100 and their 4* rating. I've read some bad reviews saying otherwise but after travelling around Asia this was one of the best price to experience ratios I've had, just a shame it doesn't have a spa!! As a side note, I requested to have a room as far from the station as possible as I'm a light sleeper and we were put on the 10th floor

Booked at a super hot deal rate and didn’t regret it. The grand superior room looked small in the photo but turned out to be a good comfortable size and luxurious. The bath, sink and toilet are all in separate compartments. Extremely clean. Love the layout, design and amenities. Crockery and toiletries all high quality. Unfortunately hotel was under renovation and main entrance was boarded up. But they stationed a staff at the side entrance to direct guests. We almost missed it cos we arrived at night and thank goodness for google map. Would stay here again when they complete reno. Kyoto is a beautiful city and we will definitely return.

The hotel is very close to Kyoto Station and convenient to go everywhere in Kyoto by train or by bus. The room is big enough for the room type we chose which can fit into 4 members family with 2 child. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast and bed are all good as recommended by most travelers. The only drawback for my stay is they charge children above 6 for an adult's price although we have prepare everything for the kid and not using their facility. BTW, this is the rule of the hotel which clearly stated on their website so we are willing to pay. Will choose the same hotel if we come back Kyoto.

this was my honeymoon, so i spent hours, days looking for the perfect hotel per each city we visited. This one was one of top favorite hotels. The location is too perfect, just walks away from the kyoto station, so traveling was easy. kyoto station has this dinning area with a ton of amazing food selections/massage area/ and shops to browse through. Besides the location, the hotel itself was very nice. It's a mid range hotel, but it felt like it was a bit more than that. the shower/bath tub combo is amazing, the toilet has a seperate room. Personally i love the vanity area, it was perfect for getting ready with two mirrors front and back, place for all my hair tools, makeup essentials, and skin products. The beds very comfortable with clean sheets. I love japanese hotels, theyre so clean, and the staff is so proper. We took advantage of their breakfast buffets every morning, they offer both japanese and western food. our favorite part was their large selection of sorbets

Room was small as you can expect from hotels in Japan. Just across the road to Kyoto Tower and for shopping, just go underground or Kyoto Station, very convenient. There is a Japanese restaurant just across the hotel at the station, it has great sushi and lovely Japanese styled sitting area. Fine dining feel at a reasonable price.
