Location is great, but too many rooms in the hotel and thousands of customers. The waiting time for checkin is very long for some time.

Jewel in Kyoto

Posted Dec 5, 2017
It was a fantastic stay! It was very strategic, especially with their shuttle service every 20mins.

Elegant modern hotel

Posted Oct 23, 2017
Pros: Staff, at all levels; cleanliness; large rooms.
Cons: It would be nice if the breakfast restaurant could stay open beyond 1030, for those who prefer brunch.
Location: Quiet location, nice native-dwelling neighborhood, far from most tourist attractions. Limited local restaurants.
The Brighton is built around a large central atrium. On the ground floor in the atrium are hotel services, a dessert restaurant, and a western restaurant. Very high end Japanese and Chinese restaurants are on the next level. Staff are extraordinarily well trained and polite, rooms are spacious and immaculate, with every convenience. Subway shuttle is useful and convenient. Overall, a superb hotel.

A really nice and well maintained hotel. Only shortcoming is the location, but is compensated by the frequent shuttle bus. Would recommend to all travelers.

Comfortable, very nice hotel; location a bit remot

Kyoto Brighton is a very nice hotel with a huge beautiful lobby. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Great shower. Nice bar in lobby. The only drawback is the location- it’s a bit far from the train station and local restaurants.

New hotel - far from Kyoto Center

Posted Oct 10, 2017
Pros: The lobby has a great vibe and drinks were great. The Front Desk was great and the Concierge was extremely helpful in assisting us with our program.
Kyoto Brighton is a decent hotel-not outstanding. It is located a little far from Kyoto Station or any of the main sights of Kyoto. The rooms are clean-unfortunately the Room Service and House keeping spoke no English. I asked for fresh milk a few times for tea that is set up nicely in the room- but got charged for a full tea service-twice.Other hotels in Tokyo do not charge for a small pot of milk. The restaurants at the hotel are also marginal in terms of quality of food. We did not love the setup of the rooms with terrace since there were no windows and the living room was connected to the bedroom through the Bath area. It was quite odd. Perhaps the other rooms are set up differently.
