Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights as a family- we took 2 rooms, while small compared to normal standards, for the Japanese business hotel, this was one of the biggest rooms we had during our journey. The front desk was well staffed, room had all basic amenities required. They also had micro wave, iron and laundry service ( coin operated). Breakfast provided, but options were very limited. The location is very close to the Kyoto station,very convenient for train access

Best thing is the location, so close to the train station and right in the heart of Kyoto. Heaps of great food options nearby.

Rooms were tiny, as is to be expected for Japan I guess, but avoid bringing large luggage. Rooms were clean and the bed was comfy. The bathroom was basic but everything worked fine.

Breakfast was crowded but we always managed to find a spot, and there were plenty of food options including some tasty salads. Would love to stay here again.

This Hotel is across the Kyoto Station and so convenient to the metro train to the city. The room is so cramped, and breakfast is just okay, but for the value is just fine. They even store our luggage as we arrive 3 hours before check-in, and they are very accommodating.

Very good value! Was able to book early and stayed 9 nights! Breakfast was included and although it did get monotonous (there were 2 main sets that repeated every other day) the hotel did give you a choice to trade in the coupons for canned drinks and snacks. I am not complaining given the price. Also, front desk and housekeeping staff were very helpful!. Will definitely look at staying here on our next visit to Kyoto.

Best area in Kyoto for easy commute around Kyoto or even to other places that require shinkansen, metro, bus etc. Daily breakfast is included for the whole stay. So many malls and restaurants inside Kyoto Station too. The only hotel in my whole trip in Japan that didn’t want to assist in restaurant reservations. The self-check in also took more time than having a receptionist checks you in. They offer luggage storage and umbrella loaning on rainy days. The breakfast area is packed all the time. It said they had welcome drinks on certain hours but never saw it during my entire stay. The location is great so as the rooms but the hospitality is not as good compared to my other stays in Japan.

As a first time Japan traveller, we chose these hotel because of it proximity to the Kyoto station and we are so glad that we did. Location is perfect.
After amost 2 hrs bullet train ride from Tokyo its great not to walk to far to your hotel to be able to refresh a bit. Everything is provided and breakfast is included at our room rate. No matter what time we get down for breakfast its always busy. There seems to be an expansion on the works. They need this since it is so busy when we were there.
Will book again next time.

Free breakfast was great. Room was small, but we did stay at another Kyoto hotel also, and this one had more room! Staff were friendly.
Had electronic check in with staff to help you, so wasn't bad at all.
Location was quite close to station (literally across the road)

The front desk staff could have been more helpful
The room was clean, had air-conditioning, kettle, and toiletries, but shelves, draws, and cupboard space of any kind were lacking, everything has to stay in your bag or go on the floor.
Breakfast has western elements and is available using a voucher issued at check-in.
The great thing about this hotel is its proximity to the main Kyoto station, which makes sightseeing Kyoto easy to achieve

Hotel Keihan is right next to Kyoto Station. The location is super convenient for travelers to access train, metro, bus and shopping.

The hotel is relatively new and clean in general. My room is a bit small, around 16 square meter. There is a small round table which I moved it next to the bed to spare space for my suitcase.

Our room is on the 8th floor. It was very quiet at night. The hotel provides shampoo, conditioner and slippers for the use in the room. You have to pickup coffee, tea, skin lotion, chopsticks etc at the lobby,

The breakfast is the best part. There is plenty of salad, buns, egg..... Quality of food is decent.

We like the hotel in general due to its location. There are lots of shops and restaurants inside Kyoto Station. There are also 2 Donki nearby.

Thank you very much for staying at our hotel. Thank you again for your cooperation in posting a review. Our hotel has good access from the station, making it ideal for sightseeing in Kyoto. We have received very positive feedback from everyone. How did you like the view from the higher floors? It would be great if you enjoyed it. In addition, amenities will be handed over at the front desk after midnight, but until then, we have set up an amenity bar so that you can take the amenities as you like. All of our employees will continue to improve our work every day and strive to provide even greater satisfaction. We look forward to seeing you again. HOTELKEIHAN KYOTOEKIMINAMI TOKIMASA
