    5/5 Excellent

    LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! This hotel is located close enough but not too close to the wonderful Kyoto station. The bus stops, trains and taxi areas were all within a 5 minute walking distance. The staff was amazing and so courteous and welcoming. The hotel was spotless and the rooms were larger than we expected them to be. Only Japanese TV in the rooms but what can you expect!? We had an amazing time and would definitely stay here again!

    Kyoto New Hotel Stay

    Very new hotel close to Kyoto Station with staff eager to help. Excellent breakfast and very comfortable. Parking ticket needs to be endorsed at front desk every entry. Seems same entry system as Hyatt Regency Kyoto but not sure why Hyatt can do one ticket unlimited entry into carpark with one ticket but Thousand cannot.

    5/5 Excellent

    Absolutely serene hotel with fabulous facilities, location and architecture - and the floating art in the reception is mesmerising The staff are not as capable as the property they represent and we had issues with mistakes in our booking repeated every day with the only apology being a few free soft drinks

    Lovely Stay in Kyoto

    This hotel is beautiful and the staff are incredible. Easy location near Kyoto Station, but also only about a twenty minute walk to Gion which was one of the areas we wanted to see the most. Loved the room and bathroom; great service and accessibility through the iPad in the room to adjust lighting, curtains, privacy modes, and to request dining and amenities...very modern touch in such a historic city.
