The Grand Prince Hotel has nice rooms - spacious, cozy and clean. They have this advocacy of going green so the shampoo, conditioner and body wash are contained in big bottles (which they just refill) instead of small ones. They also let you have an option of foregoing the room cleaning service in exchange for a discount in the room rates.
Breakfast at the hotel is average, what you would expect to be served in a business hotel. They also serve Japanese breakfast. The hotel rate is somewhat expensive compared to hotels near the city center.
In terms of tour services, the reception did not give much option except that of a tourist company that convenes its clients in the Kyoto city center, so you have to take the subway or taxi to Kyoto city center to participate in the tours. The Wi-fi is not free so you to pay a certain fee for a day's use of WI-fi.
The hotel is at the northern end of Kyoto. It's near a forest with a pond so it's a bit calmer in the area. Though it's a bit far from the Kyoto city center, it's fairly close to the Kokusaikaikan subway station, which is like 20 minutes from Kyoto city center. So it's not really isolated, but could be more expensive than staying in the city center. It's across the International Conference Center of Kyoto so it's a very convenient hotel for those who need to go there.
The reception people are nice and accommodating.
