"Great Hotel, Beautiful Views"
I really enjoyed this hotel. It was a long walk from the elevator to my room (maybe 120 steps), but don't let that put you off. The rooms are very good size and extremely clean. My room came with a large balcony that had a great view of Kyoto and the mountains. Bathroom was a nice size with all the amenities. Bed was very very comfortable. Best sleep i've had in a long time. Some english channels on TV which was a nice change from the hotel I stayed in Tokyo. Hotel is very close to subway, but the Hotel also offers a shuttle that will take you to the main areas of town. If you like going for a morning walk, there is plenty to see in the immediate area. Overall I would stay here again.
"nice quiet hotel"
This hotel was a little far from Kyoto downtown, however, there was a free shuttle to take us to Gion and downtown. Within walking distance, there was a very nice temple. Room was a little small and old looking, but over all I enjoyed my stay here.
"Great nice hotel in Kyoto"
This is a very nice hotel located a little away from the Kyoto downtown. It can be easily assessed via subway Keage station. It will cost about 1800 yens to take a taxi from the Kyoto Shinkansen station to the hotel, and the hotel also offers free shuttle but reservation is recommended.
"Needs a renovation but it is a Nice hotel"
We had two rooms and there door to door however the rooms were different in size and one room was a bit moist like it never dried up. The beds are good and so is the pool area and fitness. I like the location a bit off the tourist Traps and with Nice views and a great garden. One thing that was particular good was the coffee very italian with good taste - this is rare to find in hotels. The hotel needs renovation and that is both rooms and the restaurants. The service is also very good and the consiegers make an effort to help you.
"The worst lounge at SPG and Marriot"
Historical hotel but they do not care for customer satisfaction. They look like that they have an "allergy" against Platinum members. Lounge is based on alcohol. The food is terribleer and they give you only 4 pieces, sushi size. If you like any of them, you can not ask for it. Their no is very aggressive and dramatic. Their house keeping is very well. Impeccably clean rooms and comfortable. Shuttle service is very professional and never fails. Breakfast is decent but poorer than any other hotel in Asia. They have only 2 type of cheese and they never change. They put the same cheese at the lounge. So, you will "face" same cheeses day and night. If you are Platinum member, don't not go to this hotel. They will make you disappointed. Very interesting city and classy people in town.
