“Very good location”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

A great hotel with a nice lobby but small rooms. The breakfast was really fantastic and the spa was great. It took some time to check in as the employees did not understand much English. The location is great, short walk to the food market and Gion.

Saya ingin berbagi pengalaman selama saya berada di Kyoto untuk mengikuti kongres internasional yang diadakan di Kyoto International Conference Center belum lama ini.
Kebetulan saya mendapat informasi tentang Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Shinjou secara jelas di internet dan saya putuskan untuk memilihnya.
Hotel ini dapat dicapai dengan mudah dari Kyoto Station dengan menggunakan kereta bawah tanah (subway) Karasuma Line jurusan Kyoto International Conference Center dan turun di Shijou Station. Dari Shijou station, hotel ini dapat dicapai dengan berjalan kaki sekitar 7 menit.
Begitu saya masuk ke dalam hotel ini, terdapat lobby yang luas dan taman bergaya Jepang yang membuat saya terasa nyaman berada di sana.
Saya disambut oleh petugas hotel dengan ramah dan cukup baik berbahasa Inggris.
Karena saya pernah tinggal cukup lama di Jepang, saya lebih banyak menggunakan bahasa Jepang.
Seperti kebanyakan penginapan di Jepang, di sana disediakan juga "spa" yang dapat digunakan secara cuma-cuma oleh para tamu hotel mulai dari pagi hingga malam hari.
Kamar hotel bersih dan baik, dengan berbagai fasilitas seperti wi-fi dan LAN gratis, kamar mandi yang bersih, channel TV, lemari es, pemanas air dan AC.
Sarapan tersedia bagi mereka yang menyukai makanan khas Jepang maupun standard internasional dengan pelayanan yang ramah.
Bagi mereka yang bertujuan untuk mengikuti meeting di Kyoto International Conference Center, lokasi hotel ini sangat cocok karena hanya dengan sekali menggunakan subway Karasuma Line, anda sudah langsung sampai ke tempat yang dituju.
Di sekitar hotel juga banyak terdapat restoran dan tempat makan yang buka hingga larut malam serta "convenience store" yang buka selama 24 jam.

When we first arrived to Tokyo, we did not pay enough attention to the address and i ended up to another nearby Mitsui Garden Hotel, careful, there are 3 of them in the same zone!
When we first arrived we were pleased to see the english soeaking staff, going beyond theirselves to please us and to make sure that we had everything that we needed.
We had to book a smoking room even though we do not smoke and when we entered the room the smell it was horrible, fortunately the window can open and we let the fresh air come in during our stay, apart from that there is an air cleaner in the room that we kept on and to give it a final touch I bought a pack of coffee at the supermarket just around the corner, opened it in the room and finally we had our perfectly fresh non-smoking room!
The hotel restaurant serves very good food although not many options.
The onsen (japanese bath) is also available at no extra charge.
There are some bikes for rent at the hotel that I strongly recommend... kyoto is perfect for biking and moving around and every place of interest is easily reachable.
The only thing about this hotel is that I had to walk about 8 minutes to the Shijo station to get into the subway.
I any case I recommend this hotel!

Hotel is located in downtown Kyoto, which is great for shopping and dining. A subway station is just 7 minutes by foot, which makes it convenient. There are a number of bus routes stopping nearby.
The room (small double room) was just ok for one person who's used to keep her things in order. Not enough space to hang the clothes or even to put a suitcase. There's a desk and a chair.

The breakfast (1500 Yen/person) had a good selection of western and Japanese food and the serve in the restaurant is excellent.

The hotel is tidy but there's a feeling of the staff being constantly on alert "Oh, these foreigners!".
The air in the room was very dry which made the sleep not so comfortable.

I would expect more value for the money.

We stayed in Mitsui Garden Hotel Shijo in November 2013. First don't mix it up with Mitsui Garden Hotel Sanjo which we did.They gave us a plan in Mitsui Garden Hotel Sanjo how to find
Mitsui Garden Hotel Shijo but it was not so easy. Everyone we asked for directions said they did not know it and the plan was of little help. So check Google Maps first. The hotel is close to the underground station and bus stops and they give you a list how to reach all the main sights by city transport. The staff at the reception are very helpful. The rooms are small but clean, breakfast filling. They also have a Japanese bath which we used every night. All in all the hotel is worth the money you pay for it.

We reserved 5 days, but end up leaving the next day!
The hotel was clean, the staff was helpful, but we were expecting a 4 star hotel, and this is a maximum 3 star! Price wise, the hotel was way below expectations!
Rooms was very very small! Suffocating I would say!
Location is ok, but a good 20 min walking to main shopping streets.

We stayed in this hotel (alternating between this hotel and Mitsui Garden Hotel Sanjo) and I must say that this is hotel is extremely thoroughly cleaned hotel - the cleaners every morning spent ages cleaning the rooms and onsen. And the room was like a first encounter every time we came back from our sightseeing trips.

Also, we noticed that the rooms were very large (for japanese standards) with all the modern facilities that we needed.

Plus, the breakfast was very tasty with a wide selection of healthy japanese and continental selections - even for us as vegetarians, this was one of the best hotel breakfasts we have in all of our trips.
