"Amazing Stay in Garden Room"
We had stayed at the Hyatt Regency to try and catch the Cherry Blossoms. We were a bit early and not a lot of trees have bloomed. However, we had a wonderful time seeing the beautiful gardens and temples of Kyoto The hotel is situated south of the city. Upon arrival, they offered a taxi service to pick you up from the Kyoto main train station (as we arrived by train from Osaka airport). This was a great service. Our room was on the lowest level overlooking the garden. It was a very large room and very comfortable. We tried the Asian restaurant in the hotel for dinner. The food was great - however the prices were expensive. I would recommend eating out of the hotel. It is a short walk to the Gion (about 30 min) where there are many restaurant options. I would stay here again.
"Solid Hotel Experience"
Just checked out of the Hyatt Regency during my two day visit to Kyoto and overall it was a good stay. Location is a little out of the way, but not too much. See below for pros and cons... Pros: - modern facilities - evening visit from a Maiko who performs and meets with guests after the show - front door / outdoor team are excellent, very professions and efficient - the Grill restaurant food was very good - excellent shower water pressure! Cons - Italian restaurant seemed impossible to use - checked three times to eat and in all cases they were full or were expecting guests - one time, they had 50% of the restaurant open but still couldn't get me a table saying they had reservations starting at 2p...when I visited it was 1:15p and it was just me - surely they could have served me in 45 minutes! - rooms are tight...worked for me as a solo traveler but add another person and it may have been too small - breakfast buffet options are limited considering the cost
"Like family hotel"
A couple of nights in Hyatt Regency. After a luxurious Tokyo hotel this was quite an average experience. Staff was nice at the reception. Breakfast was good but the staff was too busy to serve. One morning we waited for another cup of tea but got dissapointed. We had to leave without tea. Next morning there were another personnel and everything went well.
"Lots to like"
There is a lot to like about this hotel. Wonderful staff, excellent breakfast, and great location surrounded by interesting places to visit. They even put on a free 3 hour tour of the city. It is on a busy road, so some rooms might be affected by that. Our room was the opposite, being just a few feet from a brick wall. Worst view we've ever had in a hotel like this. There seemed to be half a dozen rooms like this, presumably the cheapest. It's about a fifteen minute uphill walk from the station. Take a cab rather than being like us, bedraggled from the climb. Once there the staff will tell you about the inexpensive bus system, which is easy to use. What a gorgeous city!
The rooms have the best and cleverest utilization of space ever. Staff are helpful and go out of their way to be helpful. Room is clean and well appointed - very cosy with plenty of wood used in finishes- very modern very minimalist but great. Breakfast buffet is superb and they have rice bread for those who are gluten intolerant- it is excellent and comes toasted or plain. Everything about our stay has been super so can only highly recommend it. It is very central, opposite a major museum and you can walk from here along the river to enjoy the cherry blossoms.
