Very close to Kyoto Station, just crossed the road! Very busy place to stay, but the room was quiet. Good room service, cleaned and changed everyday, even though we asked not to. Only one thing I missed in the room, Coffee. There were only Tea bags.

We stayed in this hotel for 2nights there where 2 couples and we had rooms with an a joining door. The hotel was right across from the Kyoto train station, and was so central. We used this as our base to travel to Gion where we had a geisha experience & Arashiyama to visit the bamboo forests and golden temple.... More

We travelled to Kyoto on a bullet train and the hotel was the perfect place to stay for the night since it was connected to the JR Kyoto station via underground shopping mall. The bus station was nearby so it was easy for us to travel around Kyoto. Breakfast at the hotel was amazing, they had a wide selection of... More

Located across the road from the subway for the railway station, making it easy to negotiate the area when it's raining. The room was comfortable with twin beds, good hot water and complimentary toiletries. The breakfast buffet was extensive and staff were welcoming and helpful

Best location, right across from the Kyoto train and bus station, there's a 24h convenient store, a supermarket, post office and coffee shop nearby. The room is standard, clean, small, bed is not so comfortable, has daily water bottle, bathroom quite large for Japanese standard. Breakfast Japanese and western style are ok. They could try and vary the food on... More

We also stayed at Kyoto Tower which is a 200 metres down from this one.New Hankyu is better.It's newer, the rooms are a bit bigger, better laid out. Excellent bathroom Excellent wifi. Over staffed so any issues are dealt with smartly. Super clean. Excellent location. This hotel is a winner and I would totally recommend it.

The New Hankyu Kyoto is conveniently located across the street from the Kyoto train station, if you are arriving by train, it is only a short walk. Also located across the street are the city bus stops. The buses travel throughout the city and will take you to most of the tourist sites...all day bus passes cost 500 yen which... More
