"We were cared for meticulously!!!"
The staff was wonderful--proactive. For example, although we had umbrellas on a very rainy day, a staff-member followed us outside and had us use the hotel's larger umbrellas. The free water bottles, wonderful snack crackers and instant hot water for the delicious coffee and tea made us feel at home and very cared for. The hotel was spotless!! This is not a luxury hotel, but it still felt great with all the amenities and care given us. Everything was meticulously done..

"Nice hotel with conveniently located"
Like its location very much. Just 8 minutes drive from Kyoto station ( 860 JPY taxi fare) and city bus stop is just near hotel door. many sight seeing places are with in range of walking distance. Hotel facilities are good and comfortable. only issue I observed was with restaurants , 10th floor restaurant was not having chicken dishes and first floor restaurant was closing too early at 6 PM.

Really clean place, great staff-very warm and kind. This guesthouse is located in a serene and picturesque park, surrounded by temples and shrines. It is a pleasant 15-minute downhill walk to the central part of town. Quick taxi ride from the Kyoto Station (about $10-15).

"Decent hotel, good price, good location"
Having mis-read the scale on the map this hotel I had thought was very close to the train station turned out to be a fairly long taxi ride away but the the up-side was that meant it was closer to many of the tourist attractions. The hotel is enormous!

Kyoto Tokyu Hotel

"The hotel was recently renovated, so it was nice."
We planned an overnight trip to Kyoto and booked at the Kyoto Tokyu Hotel because of price and availability, as we hadn't stayed here before. I was impressed how clean and new the hotel felt when we first arrived, including a pleasant aroma of the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and were able to help in English. The atmosphere was good. Of course, being a Japanese hotel the room was a little smaller than American hotels, including a "cozy" bathroom, though the tub/shower were plenty big (I have stayed in much smaller Japanese hotels with tiny "cramped" bathrooms, this one was not "cramped"). King beds were not available when we booked, so my wife and I stayed in "twin" beds, but we were pleasantly surprised that the "twin" beds actually felt like "double" beds, so we slept with the space we needed. The beds were a bit firmer than we like, but were not too bad. The hotel is located not far from the Kyoto JR Station, and there are buses and subways nearby to get where we wanted to go. Over all, we enjoyed our stay and will consider staying here next time we travel to Kyoto.

Nijojo-Mae Horikawa-Dori, Kyoto 604-0055 - Map
It was a very nice hotel and very pleasant stay, with a lovely selection of restaurants on site. The water fall with all the fish was an amazing sight. Right across the road from the Castle, very convenient and an odd three minute walk from the closest subway station if you don't use a taxi. Hotel staff on duty will call a taxi for you at midnight if you request it.
