Loved the public baths

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 10 Mar 2024
Great hotel conveniently located right by Kyoto Station. Free coffee and tea are available throughout the day, and you also get a welcome drink at night. Hotel restaurant was decent, too. But what really made the place stand out was the public baths—it was such a joy to be able to go downstairs each day and relax in the bath and sauna before bed. Also appreciated the no kids—made it a quiet and peaceful spot.

Booked total of 3 rooms in North wing for family of 6 adults.
Hotel accommodated our request to have all 3 rooms on same level.
We had nothing but the best from Sakura Terrace The Gallery
Location is a short 3mins walk away from Kyoto Station
It’s a breeze to get around to anywhere; be it by train, bus or on foot
There’s 7-11 a minute walk away for late night snacks
Free welcome drinks from 5 to 10pm
Free laundry
Free use for massage chairs
Free hot drinks 24/7
Wide selection of local and international food for breakfast from 7 to 10am with indoor and outdoor seating
During cold season best to pen down your room number and wait for restaurant staff to call your room when your table is ready
Otherwise you can sit around a campfire with fleece blankets provided
Friendly and helpful hotel staff especially front desk and restaurant
Special thank you to Akiko-San from front desk for helping with baggage transfer from Sakura Terrace The Gallery to our hotel in Osaka
Definitely will return when we are back in Kyoto

Room tip: For cold season to wait in the room once table is ready for breakfast Best to make a quick trip to restaurant and write down your room no.

Lousy hotel staff spoiled the entire stay.

Everything about the hotel was perfect including the close proximity to Kyoto station (5mins walk) and the amenities provided. Room wasn’t the biggest but adequate.

However one hotel staff decided to spoil the stay but not being helpful & played ignorance to resolve a situation that I was caught in , decided he does not want to offend any guest but me , so he did nothing not even apologetic for not able to handle the situation right .

I request minimum service from the hotel staff and this is what I got in the end , through out so many different hotels I stayed in. What make it worse, it happened in Japan, famous for top notch service.

Great place a short walk from Kyoto station. Hotel is modern and updated, no carpet on the floors in the rooms - yay!

Double Superior room is spacious, you can move around without tripping in furniture or your suitcase! Bathroom is a standard size Japanese bathroom have never had one bigger.

Staff friendly although not all speak English well so things do come across abrupt.

Massage chairs and free tea and coffee in the lounge a big win.

I selected the hotel because it was 2 blocks from Kyoto station. Also, a pleasant surprise was on my way to the hotel was a 7-11. Nice. I enjoyed my stay here at The Gallery. It was like a cool hipster vibe. It was efficient and nice. The accommodations were neat, clean and I liked the bathroom amenities in the bathroom. The shower head had a lot of water pressure. I enjoyed my shower a lot. This young staff member, I forgot his name , but , he was from Texas and he was very helpful in telling us where he goes for fun restaurants. He was very nice. Best part is they offer a free drink every night. I had the Non alcoholic drink. Grape beer and it was so delicious. I will come back here again.

Stayed in the Deluxe Room located at North Wing, room size is much bigger compared to most standard hotel room in Japan.

Hotel provides complimentary beverages and welcome drinks every night which is much appreciated.

Hotel situated just 5mins walk from Kyoto station which is very convenient.

Not all staffs are friendly which is a pity but overall a great stay for us.
