Can't Go Wrong”
Our family of four (twin boys, age 10) stayed at the Rhiga Royal for 4 days in July 2018. Great stay: good location, very comfortable room as they provided 4 comfortable beds, very nice indoor swimming pool (extra fee required), and a very helpful concierge. We could do laundry at a coin laundry an 8-minute walk from the hotel (did 3 big loads which saved huge cost of using a hotel service). We highly recommend this hotel.

Dear Guest, Thank you for the great review of our hotel! We are pleased that you enjoyed our newly renovated rooms and indoor swimming pool. Our concierge staff were glad to help you and are always ready to help guests with any requests or questions they may have as well.

We are glad you could take full advantage of your stay and are always ready to welcome you back. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again very soon. Sincerely, Manager

Nice choice if visiting Kyoto. Pretty convenient location.”
The hotel is only two blocks from the main rail and metro station. There is also a shrine and temple within walking distance from the hotel (if you arrive early before check-in as we did). Taxi drivers are always onsite ready for passengers if needed...no wait. I would stay again if visiting Kyoto in the future.

Great Hotel, location and friendly staff”
I love my vacastay at Rihga Royal Hotel Kyoto. I booked Deluxe Twin Non-Smoking Room which can accomodate for 4 peoples with 4 single beds. Spacous and luxurious room with very good quality of amenities, clean and comfortable beds. Helpful and frienfly staff that always provided us clear direction on how to go places around kyoto. Location is great, close to Kyoto Station. Hotel provides free shuttle bus from/to kyoto station. The only one cons is we have to pay for using the swimming pool. Very recommended for friends to stay at Rihga Royal Hotel Kyoto.

Family Room Too Small”
Although we booked a family room for 4, our 10 year old daughter had to share a bed with us because there wasn't a fourth bed. Luckily we only stayed for one night. Disappointing as we booked a room for four people, reception told us it was a room for four and agreed it was a bit of a squeeze.... But that was that apparently.

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We deeply apologize that our staff was not able to provide you with four beds. If you booked through a travel agent or online booking service, it's possible that there was some miscommunication between our hotel and the representative.

Lovely hotel but awful Wifi”
Great size room, convenient location with shuttle bus to the station. However the Wi-Fi was awful. I had reception 2%of the time. I had an engineer visit my room and staff try to fix by directing me to a website but it would always fail within 5 mins and was unusable. I had to resort to paying for roaming internet charges. When you're overseas Wi-Fi is vital and for this reason alone I would not return to this hotel. However if this doesn't bother you would recommend this hotel.

It's fairly close to the station but it was a bit hard to find the shuttle bus stop at Kyoto Station at first. The room is ok spacious(Japan standard) but kind of off from the pictures. Hotel itself is at a fairly convenient location, you got 7-11, supermarkets, and izakaya around you. If you ever need to grab a drink at night just walk straight out and you will find plenty open till late

Our first visit to Kyoto for a pre-wedding shoot. RIHGA was excellently located close to the central train station, had buses to nearby attractions and we even found a really good hipster coffee shop just across the street. The room had more than ample space compared to hotels in Tokyo which made it a really luxurious stay.
