Just across the underground subway station exit

We are generally pleased with our stay at the hotel except for the cleanliness of our room toilet. I had to clean off a brown stain at the bottom of the toilet seat cover before use when we first checked into our hotel room. The room size was good compared to most hotels in Japan. The location was great- near subway, eating places and shopping district, and within walking distance from many of Kyoto's places of interest.

Couple getaway

Spent four nights at this hotel from 4th December to 8th December 2014. Excellent location with particularly polite and attentive staff who took pains to answer all our queries and guide us to the many tourist attractions. Very well placed in terms of nearby restaurants and bakery. Overall, we would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kyoto.

Very nice location and helpful staff

We can go shopping and dining so easily with the perfect location of the hotel. Also, we can reach the bus stops and go everywhere for sightseeing within 5 mins on foot. The staff members speak pretty good English and helpful. I can manage to buy the bus pass there directly. I will recommend this hotel to my friends who wanna visit Kyoto.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Bus pass in Kyoto is a must for travel. You dont have to worry about paying extra money even you lost your way and the public transportation is so accessible.

Good value and pleasant stay

Location is good and convenient, near train stations and various bus stops. Close to Gion and eat and shopping places. Staff are friendly and able to communicate in English. Room is clean and tidy, although can hear some noise from the street. Hotel sells bus day pass and helps to reserve for restaurant dining. Most importantly, it's great value for money.

Smoky in non- smoking

I paid almost double the business hotel rate to stay at the Royal Hotel & Spa, hoping it would be little bit special. It's a good hotel, but it's not Royal ( 4 star), has no spa, and the hotel air conditioning reeks of smoke. The staff explained that smoking is common on non- smoking floors during busy times! This hotel could be great, but they need to change their policies and be more than an expensive typical Japanese business hotel.
