    The hotel is easily accessable from the subway station, just a short 10-15 minute walk. It is a cheap cab ride to the Gion area, about 680 yen. There is plenty to do within walking distance during to day and night.

    Good

    The hotel is very centrally located and therefore you can easily reach all the nice sites in the wonderful city of Kyoto.

    The hotel staff speaks English very well, but is not very flexible in making arrangements for the costumers.

    Good

    Room is enough big, bath room is good. Only one lift on the floor and we had to walk a lot to reach our room.

    Staff don't speak English well enough, hotel is not very clean, far from the station. There is no any spa or onsen in the hotel ! What they call spa is the beauty salon.

    A pleasant enough hotel, spacious room and comfortable. Located at the top of the main shopping streets, and 200m from a subway station. Buffet evening meal was nice and not too expensive (eat and drink all you want...)

    Breakfast a bit expensive

    Superb

    Staff were most helpful and met all of our needs. The area was central to a variety of shops and food outlets which were great and there was 24 hour free internet available. The bed was excellent and bathroom products superior. A most enjoyable stay.

    The room was a little small but adequate.

    Very good

    We have a wonderful stay at the hotel, it was near the main city for shopping and sight-seeing using the bus. Although it was a little dated, it was clean. Also, the staffs were helpful with our needs and they have a very honest room attendant.

    Spacious room for twin share, we had a 1 bedroom suit! Not sure if that is standard, walking distance from all major temples, shopping and subway. Staff very helpful, would stay again.

    Exclusive

    Hotel was quiet and in a great location - in walking distance to many restaurants, clubs and Gion (geisha district). Was easy to find from subway station. Hotel beds were comfortable, fresh towels brought immediately when asked. Were also able to check in an hour before the hotel was ready. Highly recommend this hotel.

    Had a few issues with the internet connection and no LAN cable.

    Royal Hotel was right in the midst of downtown. It was in a super spot and perfect for sightseeing. It was a huge plus point that they had a happy hour in the lounge during the early evening as drink prices in Japan are excrutiating! Oh and they had a lovely French Bakery as well!

    Fabulous

    The location of the hotel. It is right on the center of the city. Walking distance to shops and restaurants.

    This hotel has many rooms in each floors. It is quite a distance just to get to the elevator from my room. All employees have broken english. Its hard to communicate when we want or need something.

    Fabulous

    Excellent location, just 2 minutes walking to Pontocho and shoping areas. Price ok if one bears in mind that it is Japan. Always the same, rooms are too small for western standards

    Checking in time is very late and inconvenient for the traveller (14:00), although they facilitate this a bit by keeping your luggage in the meantime. Same for checking out (11:00)
