                I liked the quiet where My girlfriend and I were quite undisturbed. Also I liked the 12.00 checkout time so we didn't have to hurry. It was a romance weekend so we both enjoyed it verry much. Thankyou very much!! Also liked the location at the rail station, very convenient.

                Great location, very convenient, many restaurants. Room small (but this is Japan!), but comfortable ...

                Very comfortable beds, nice room decor, efficient house keeping, extensive range of personal grooming kit offered, very close to central train gates and main bus interchange, convenient to get around by Bus, jr Lines or Taxis

                Expensive breakfast

                Ideal hotel if budget is not a constraint, not near the sights but all transports to and for end at the hotel's doorstep, so it's so vey convenient, worth it!!

                Maybe the price but its a 5 star hotel, they could also have more English tv channels.

                The location was exellent, lots of places to eat, everything you wanted was there.

                It was expensive to eat at the hotel, always a cover charge to sit down, got charged 700 yen to sit in a bar and drink expensive cocktails.

                The hotel is very well located. It's very convinient no matter where do you want to go to at Kansai area. The room is clean and nicely equipped.

                I sent a request and ask for the help with restaurant reservation but they completely forgot/ignored this. My room has no view and the sight is blocked by the sation building. The location is nice but I am not feeling well served by a hotel in this price band.

                Good location in Kyoto jr station means that all station facilities are readily available and easily accessible. Bus station for local sightseeing is also on doorstep. Room was a fair size with chairs and small table providing additional comfort.

                Staff spoke little English therefore not able to be helpful. Room looked out onto jr station; thus not a particularly pleasant view and no natural light.. All restaurants very expensive. Additional high costs for gymnasium and pool - not included.

                Convenient to railway, shops, deli, tourist information. Pleasant ambiance. Welcoming and helpful staff

                could give intending guests more explicit directions from railway exits.

                Location great, right over the train station. Staff wonderful, as is always the case in Japan.

                Too many add on costs. Paying to use the pool, paying to use the coffee in the room, and the usual absurd prices in hotel bars & restaurants.

                We were really touched by the Japanese hospitality in this hotel. The service standard was superb. Extremely convenient location, clean and very comfortable room. Highly recommended!

                Good but huge hotel, conveniently located at Kyoto Station, near all touristic information and transportation. Despite the fact that the hotel is really big, service was attentive, at breakfast, bell desk and concierge. The hotel has a lot of trestaurants on the top floor, which I didn´t have the chance to eat, but really appealed to me, with good options and a great view from Kyoto.

                The hotel is too big, our room was at the end of the corridor, so we had to walk a lot to get there. It´s a minor problem, though.

                A+ amazing. Everything was fantastic. Massive rooms. Veiw of the train station (great for my 3yr old boy) hub of transport that could take you all over the "west kanji" area by train or all over the city by bus. Should have used the concierge (sp?) before our last night. Their English was fantastic. Went out of their way to help. Amazing shower!!!

                Great location. Start your day trip just outside the door whether you are taking a subway, train, bus or taxi. Plenty of restaurants and shopping in the adjacent shopping center. Who would have ever thought a hotel that is over a railroad station would be so nice. You do not hear the traffic or the trains.
