Exceptional and Unique

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Oct 2020
This hotel is undoubtedly the best in Kyoto. I am a frequent traveller to Japan, and I often stay for a while. Whilst I mainly stay in Tokyo (the Princes Gallery and Peninsula are unmissable) I always make a trip to Kyoto. I tried the Thousand for the first time in 2019 (winter). I chose a large room with a private terrace balcony.

Firstly, the whole aesthetic of those hotel is wonderful - very slim, modern and clean. True to Japanese style, it is a wonderful mix of futuristic/modern with traditional Japanese elements. The foyer has an amazing feature/artwork installed. The staff are excellent, welcoming and have excellent English skills (although they were happy to suffer my limited Japanese).

The room was spacious, airy and well lit. Very clean. The bathroom was also well stocked and luxurious. The shower and bath were particularly good.

I really recommend the private terrace rooms. There is a large private terrace with seating and it is nicely lit. The building is designed so that each balcony/outdoor area is extremely private.

The room comes with a tablet that controls all the lights and air conditioning.

The room service food was exceptional. I will probably always stay here in future when I visit Kyoto. I stayed for 5 days and it was far too short a visit.

すごい!和食は美味いと思います。僕の部屋は大きくてとても綺麗でした。一番ホテルに京都。(私の日本語は下手です!)

What a beautiful hotel. The entrance is lovely, the staff were really welcoming and the check in procedure was seamless. My room was lovely, some really great touches - pjs, amenities, tea and coffee making etc. Things you'd expect and more.
Great location, just off the main road so a little more quiet but access to everywhere is so easy.
I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Kyoto.

This hotel is amazing. Right by Kyoto Station, stylish Japanese elegance in design, with great artwork and fantastic hotel staff, very friendly and professional. Room was huge by Japanese standards, with a massive bed and fantastic shower and toiletries. Heaps of restaurants nearby.

Enjoyed our 2 night stay with husband and 2 kids 16 and 12. Great set up of room with futons for kids and large beds for us. Loves sitting out on the deck- a small zen garden (watching the bullet trains at the station). Delicious breakfast and tea cafe a must for afternoon tea and yummy cake. Perfect location for Kyoto station. Will definitely stay there again if in Kyoto.
