"Average but totally overpriced"
Known as slightly above average business hotel chain I was disappointed about the room size compared to other hotels of the chain. This would make it average. But being charged over 280 USD for a single room excluding breakfast leads to a disappointing rating. If you are a tourist visiting several days, stay in Osaka and commute by Shinkansen which just takes 10 minutes. For this money you can even stay in the RITZ CARLTON Osaka which is a different world.
"great location! modest hotel"
what an excellent hotel location, 1 block from both subway lines! we were traveling with a 3 year old and they had a welcome bag for her which made her day! the beds were very comfortable but in the traditional way, only singles and no king sized rooms. we were not in Kyoto long enough to enjoy all the amenities of the hotel.
This is a nice clean and well situated hotel. It's within walking distance of some nice restaurants and the metro line. I can't comment on the Japanese baths as I'm tattooed so I wasn't allowed in. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for something clean and basic.
"A+ for service"
We booked our hotel at the last minute and it was the beginning of the blossom season. Kyoto Garden hotel was a small boutique like ambiance. There was a small garden as you entered and it all looked nice and cosy. Till we saw the room. This was very small even by Japan standards. Two beds occupied the entire room. There was a table with two chairs and a bathroom. There was no place for luggage nor a cupboard for hanging clothes but the place was clean, close to the Metro, and close to restaurants and to downtown. The breakfast served was excellent and what was so wonderful about this place was the service even by Japanese standards. There was nothing they would try to do for you, nothing was too hard or impossible. If you are a young couple and do not mind roughing it up a little then this is a place for you. You won't regret it.
"Very good service with some improvement needed!"
The hotel was clean with very good service. Staffs were very attentive and helpful. The hotel also has a small public hot-tub onsite for guests who would like to enjoy Japanese lookalike onsen. The triple room was a little too small for three persons and the pillow was a little flat - when I slept, it was like i didn't have any pillow under my head. The location of the hotel is not far from the underground train station and convenient store and starbucks are only a few steps walk. However, the hotel does not provide onsite parking - I had to drive to the pay parking nearby which was not the problem at all. So far, the only thing that depressed me was the pillow!
