ANA Crowne Plaza Kyoto
Ranked #49 of 396 Hotels / Ryokan in Kyoto
Reviewed 5 January 2014

This hotel has a very good international standard with spacious rooms, restaurants and facilities. Good service the bus from/to the station free of charge and is very well located next to the subway and nera the castle. Rooms need to be renovated a little bit, especially the bathroom, furnitures and the moquette. Breakfast is very good.

First of all the view from our room was facing one of the biggest tourist attraction in Kyoto (Ni-jo-Castle), hence the view was quite stunning, especially at dawn. The room itself was spacious and well decorated. Hotel was very high-class, and so was the hospitality. Every weekend they host different musicians and they will be playing live at the lobby or bar in the hotel, which was quite interesting to see. Location is in front of the castle as mentioned, however could be a good 30-min walk to downtown area.

Room Tip: Try get the room facing the castle if possible, the view is stunning!

The staff at this location were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is attractive but a little out of the way, but provides a shuttle service to the main train station which was great. The rooms were clean and well maintained though a little small. The staff here was most helpful - we got wonderful dining and sightseeing tips throughout our stay. The restaurant - with the breakfast buffet while a little pricey for everyday had the most beautiful view of the waterfall and had a great selection of breakfast options. Our bunch is big on sit down breakfast -and there aren't a lot of breakfast places around the area except grab and go. The hotel is a quieter area and is located right across Nijo Castle.

This is a very nice hotel, we had a very pleasant stay here. It's clean and comfortable and it is in a great location. Close to the metro station and easy to get round. Service was great, well spoken English. Free wifi which is a bonus. There is a great ramen noodle shop close by, it's a must try!

My daughter and I stayed here in November as part of our annual holiday, as this year we had decided on touring Japan. The hotel is lovely, with the dining area facing the awesome cascading waterfall. This hotel has beautiful rooms, larger than most other hotels we stayed in during out holiday in Japan. We stayed in a deluxe twin rooms and really enjoyed it. The room was very comfortable and always kept clean. What made our stay at this hotel truly great was the excellent service. All the staff from the front desk to the housekeeping were amazingly friendly and always willing to put a smile on your face. This is truly a great hotel to stay in when visiting Kyoto in Japan.

The hotel is a bit tired looking but the staff are very friendly. Locationwise it is about 10 mins drive from the train station, but there are regular hotel shuttle going back and forth to the station.

It is next to Nijo castle, and there is a subway nearby. We got upgraded to a room with the castle view. The room is the same size as any other hotel in Japan. It is clean and the beds are comfortable. Because it is wintertime, they turned on the heater in the rooms. However, this made the air very dry. I woke up in the night because it was so dry. I think the hotel understand this, as they had provided humidifier in the room. I had to turn it to the max as the room was very dry.

Overall, for the right price, a good hotel to stay.

My neighbor and I stayed here as part of our package tour of Japan in October. The rooms are pretty standard but it was those mechanical toilet seats that really had us amused. Only to later find out these devices are very standard throughout Japan. The location was great as it was very close to the Nijo Castle and its amazing "singing" wooden floors. Also within walking distance to some decent restaurants but since it rained on us quite a bit we found taking a cab to the shopping district (covered arcades) a better choice with a much larger selection of eats and shopping. The shuttle to train station was handy but felt so sorry for the driver having to listen to the hotel promo video all day, every day! A last word of advice, get to breakfast early or you will be waiting for a table although the wait was never terribly long.
