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 here for 6 nights & we enjoyed our stay. This hotel is rated as a 4 star hotel, and it definitely lives up to its expectations. Our room was a twin room (my error), but the beds were put together closely (as they didn’t have any double or queen available in the last minute after I realised that I booked the wrong bed).
Location: Right in the hustle bustle of the city, close to pretty much everything (shops, convenience stores, bakeries, restaurants, 5 minutes walk to the Pontocho area, 3 minutes walk to the bridge where you can walk or run along the river, 7 minutes walk to the Gion area, etc). The train stations (Sanjo Keihan on the other side of the river, or Kawaramachi Sanjo on the same side) are fair bit to walk if you have heavier luggage.
Cleanliness: Excellent, both room & general area of the hotel.
Staff: Super friendly and helpful. A couple of staff have slightly limited English but they tried to be as helpful as they could to help us with our matters (not hotel related).
Check in & out: Easy, also electronic version is available with a few check out booths in the lobby.
Room: Reasonable size room with bathroom (shower & bath; separate), coffee tea making facility, complementary fresh water bottles daily, quiet, comfortable beds & pillows. There is no proper wardrobe as such, just an open style, narrow clothes hanging space.
Laundry room (on level 2 & 3) on site, washer & dryers (¥100 coins only).
Buffet breakfast: Available in the basement restaurant, a mixed of Japanese & Western cuisine. Worth trying if you never had Japanese breakfast before.
If I had to pick a negative, the main entrance is a bit dark and a bit confusing to look for the door (for me when we arrived).
Overall, I’d definitely recommend it and happy to stay here again in the future.

Had an amazing 6 nights stay at The Royal Park Hotel, Sanjo. Location, Ichiban, in the heart of Kyoto. 👍 Supermarket, food, restaurant everywhere. 3 mins walk to 2 Subway Stations that takes you to all the places of interest. Bus-stop is just round the corner. Diagonally opposite Teramachi and Shinkyogoku shopping arcades. Walking distance to Kamo River, Gion, Pontocho, Nishiki Market, Catholic
kawaramuchi Church etc
Spacious Room very clean and comfortable. Double bed, fridge, safe box, dehumidifier, hairdryer, bedroom slippers, bathroom robe, fabric & air freshener…..Toilet had a tub to have your own Onsen every night after a hard day walk ☺️ Packet of Sea Salt provided daily) ‘Mikimoto’ brand toiletries 👍 There’s a standing shower.
This hotel has superb hospitality and customer service and the very friendly staffs speaks very good English.

We loved this hotel. Our room was larger than expected, the beds were very comfortable, the bathroom was a total spa experience, super clean and well maintained. The staff at the reception were always very polite and helpful, and highly efficient, despite the increasing flow of customers. The location is perfect, close to the river, bus stops, and an enormous mall complex. Restaurants galore everywhere, including pizza parlors, Indian food, French crepes and Mexican as well. The Breakfast buffet is very well supplied with all kinds of local and international food, but there is also a most delicious bakery a couple of yards away. When in Kyoto, always choose this hotel, you will be pleasantly surprised!

The room was clean and comfortable but the breakfast and service were average. Breakfast room was crowded and mostly offered Japanese style buffet. There was always a long line for coffee (only one machine was available). Feels like an overrated and overpriced place, location is good, of course, but the uptown Kyoto is not very big and not very far away from the downtown so you could always make it on foot or by taxi.

I came to this hotel 10 years ago and had very pleasant memories. So this year I rebooked the same hotel to travel with grandparents and young child. I can't recommend this hotel enough. Both sets of grandparents loved it and only have good things to say.

The rooms are small such that you have to be strategic about how you place your suitcases. But we managed OK with 2 big suitcases. The bathroom however is very modern and spacious. We all loved the size of it especially for Japanese standards.

The location cannot be beat. It's so centrally located that the 3 families could do as they wish in their downtime, from shopping, to going to restaurants, to walking to the Gion district. You honestly cannot beat this location.

Finally the staff is great. They even tried to help us book restaurants for 7 of us. They were so friendly and attentive. They even responded to my emails quickly before the trip.

Book it! You won't regret it. To this day my parents rave about the hotel.

Decor is cosy & relaxing & is conveniently located within eateries & shopping malls. Lounge was good place to chill with a very pro bartender who was good with his recommendations. i felt that service staff at the breakfast restaurant pales in comparison to front desk & the lounge but Overall it was an enjoyable stay.

Hotel is located in the Sanjo area of Kyoto. It is in a great location. Walking distance to the Nishiki Market. The breakfast was nice with traditional Japanese options. My only complaint is that they do not have king beds or twin beds that can be pushed together. But the rooms are comfortable with fast Wi-Fi connection. Also they have a computerized check in system that is confusing and annoying. When I check into any hotel, I prefer to speak to a human and ask questions.

Classy, modern hotel and very reasonably priced. Located within walking distance to Gion and Pontocho , and a 5 minute walk to Sanjo subway station. Room size was fairly small, but that is normal for Kyoto hotels. Breakfast was a very nice Western & Japanese buffet. Service was, as expected, of a very high standard.

I stayed here for 4 nights.
Cannot really fault much.
Location is prime. Close to Sanjo Subway Station. Many restaurants and shops to choose from.
The single room was very spacious, far more than what I had in Tokyo for more or less the same price.
A wide variety of food offered at breakfast.
Will stay here again.

What is the best way to get to Kyoto station from this hotel with light luggage?

I came into Kyoto at Kawaramachi station (Hankyu RR), which is an easy walk to the hotel even with a wheeled suitcase. You could take a taxi or there are various train and bus options. Check online.

I do know about Higashiyama but for Arashiyama, I would strongly recommend the train because it is quite a distance. The train is faster than the buses and do not get caught in traffic.
