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.

Best breakfast buffet ever. The staff were very friendly and the room we chose was spacious according to Japanese standards. The best part was it was walking distance or a short train ride to most attractions we wanted to see. The hotel onsen was an added bonus.

The location near the city center was very good. I also liked the possibility to have coffee, tee , juices etc any time for free. The room was so silent, I loved it! The breakfast was basic, I just missed glutenfree bread because of my disease. There was also the spa in this hotel!

Dear Mr/s PirkkoJ17, Thank you for taking your time to write the review of your stay. We are very pleased to hear that you were happy with our location, welcoming-drink-service, public bath and the room where you stayed. As for the gluten-free bread, we do not offer them at the moment unfortunately. However, we are aware of its popularity and importance, and we appreciate that you have reminded us of the fact. We will keep making progress to make our hotel a place where every guest has a comfortable stay and great memories. Also, we have an Instagram account where we offer some information that we reckon would be useful, so please have a look at it if you are interested. We are looking forward to seeing you again soon.

The breakfast is incredible! Wow! We thought the price was a little high until we went and now we will come back again tomorrow! There is eel, salmon, rice porridge, amazing miso soup, so many varieties of foods to try! We will definitely be back tomorrow to eat breakfast at the Vessel Hotel Campana Kyoto Gojo again!

Hotel was well equipped and clean. Reception staff very helpful and spoke very good English. Drinks and ice lollies free in afternoon. Breakfast was good and worth paying for but there are also lots of seven elevens nearby. Metro stations close by too so great for travelling. Hotel room not huge but bigger than most we had stayed in Japan.

We have completed our 5 night stay in this nice hotel which is also the end of our vacation in Japan. Very clean. Quiet area. Good location. In the middle between Kyoto station and downtown Kyoto. Gojo subway station is nearby. My wife loves the bath experience. I like the breakfast buffet. The room size is good as well. The only downside is the high volume of bus tourist companies. The best is the 5 star service and hospitality from the staff. Great experience overall.

I give a lot of 5 star reviews, because to me 5 stars means "book it, everything will be OK." But this hotel actual rose above that; it really is delightful.

Key features:

- Spotlessly clean
- Well designed rooms
- Nice location
- Fast free wifi
- Good staff
- Public bath if you want to experience that
- Free soft drinks in the afternoon

There's a really lame negative review on here that called the room "like a prison" but I think that review has never seen a Japanese hotel room before. They're small. Deal with it or go book your vacation in Duluth where you can get a big room. The room is not at all like a prison. It's light and airy with nice light wood details and architectural features. All the typical Japanese amenities are present (lots of outlets, light control from the bedside, toothbrushes, razors, etc.) There are lots of ladies' haircare and skin care products for free in the lobby, as well as a happy hour from 2 - 9 when you can get free coffee and soft drinks.

Staff are great. I encountered a couple who needed to get help to assist with a language intensive issue, but no hassles at all.

If you want to experience a Japanese public bath, this is your big chance too, as there is one on the second floor.

It's about a 20ish minute walk to the station, or a two minute walk to the Gojo station. 7-11 is next door, McDonald's is across the street.

I really liked this hotel, especially after the Shinjuku Washington.

Bottom line: ignore the haters, book with confidence.

We chose this hotel because it has a family room big enough to accommodate 5 of us. Altho the subway Gojo is at the doorstep, we chose to walk 12-15 min daily to the Kyoto JR station. Front desk staff had very good service standards and speaks decent English. Free public bath and drink station from 2-11pm is a perk.

I could not fault this hotel, we booked it as one of the nicer hotels whilst we where in Japan however we hadn’t expected it to be as good as it was. We did have a superior room which meant the room was spacious and certainly worth the extra especially when we had booked smaller hotel rooms during the rest of our trip. The room was really clean, the handy device that is provided is a great little extra which gives you unlimited data to use on a device whilst out and about, it was great to take out with us to access google maps. You could opt to not have your room cleaned and they still provided clean towels. It was actually possible to unpack some of our stuff and there was space for our cases without them being in our way.
The hotel also provides free hot and cold drinks in the lobby from 2 pm every day which we hadn’t realised. It was never overly busy in there either and it was nice to use the area if you’d come back with food or to get a drink before bed. The hotel is close to Kyoto station and easy to find only about a ten minute walk or you could get the subway to Gojo which was just outside the hotel. We didn’t realize until part way through our stay there was a Mcds close by which was good for breakfast rather than hunting for somewhere or paying at the hotel which did seem a little over priced.
Loved this hotel and would say it felt more than 3 stars especially compared to some hotels here in the UK in large cities which class themselves as 4!!
Book this hotel if you are staying in Kyoto.

Very good hotel that I have stayed in Kyoto. Close to MRT and 4 bus stop near the hotel, it's easy to reach every famous spot in Kyoto. They also make simple map with easy direction of bus map for guest, it's very nice. Public bath facility is good and clean, bath soap and shampoo, conditioner are all from Lauren Ashley with comfort rose aroma. Delicious breakfast and take out drink service is very wonderful to me. I fee ok about room size; it's enough for my family, 2 adults and 1 kid. I really had a good time here. If I have the chance, I will definitely stay this hotel for more time.
