        Adventure with my travel buddy”

        Agoda made this extraordinary lodging possible for us. We arrived by train, walked across the square to our deluxe hotel. The eighth floor offered a view, including one of a typhoon! We were safe and secure here. Everything was neat and clean. The staff was pleasant and informative. Great stay!

        The Best 3-4 Star Hotel In Kyoto”

        I stayed at the Kyoto Tower Hotel to to visit some of the best attractions Kyoto Japan has to offer. The experience was amazing complemented by the great facilities and staffs of this hotel. The location is so perfect since this hotel is less than a 100 meter away from the train and bus stations. The free food they offer for breakfast is very good. The hotel is also located near the shopping commercial district. I had a great experience and for sure will be coming back to this hotel.

        Will stay again.”

        I really enjoyed staying at Kyoto Tower Hotel and I am looking forward to returning soon. The hotel is directly across the street from the train station. It is accessible via underground concourses leading from the station. My room was small but I found it to be rather cozy. The hotel was quiet and the heating worked well, so I was very comfortable.

        Wow! Staying at this iconic hotel was my dream and i made it happen this trip. it was indeed a wonderful stay. Except for one lady who helped check me in, the other staff were very sincere and helpful. I love how convenient the hotel is and how spacious my room was! Furnishing is a little dated but overall clean. Guests also get to use the public bath for a discounted fee, as well as go up the observatory at a discounted fee! The public bath is really small and crowded though. I wouldnt return, but nice for those who want a quick public bath experience.

        Outstanding position!”

        Just near the Kyoto station, a lot of restaurant in this area, can visit the Kyoto Tower at night, but recommended in the morning, cause you can easily to identification the land mark! I'll still choose Kyoto Tower Hotel when I visit Kyoto next time.

        Price for such great location is ok. Clean rooms, quite big for typical Japanese room. Location was superb. Will come back again.

        Amazing location right opposite kyoto station yet so well-priced. I didn't get the breakfast but there's easily food to buy at the station or at the places of interest. Staff seems more used to business travellers, but it's fine with me and they are very efficient. I get a good view of the kyoto station as well, and room is big for japan hotels.
