(No parking but) Excellent hotel!!! ”

From the elegant doors that open to the exquisitely decorated lobby as you enter to the very clean rooms and amenities, this is an amazing hotel for the price. No sento, but if you have the chance to get the breakfast as part of your reservation, we highly recommend it as it has both a wonderfully bright atmosphere as well as a deliciously prepared breakfast of eggs, a variety of breads, and extras that will make you smile the rest of the day!

Fantastic Hotel - Location, Staff, Facilities 10/10”

The Royal Park Hotel Kyoto Shijo is a fantastic new hotel, steps away from the metro, airport limousine bus, and a short walk to the main shopping area nearby along Kawaramachi, Nishiki Market, etc. Another bonus is that it's 2 stops to Kyoto station, making transportation easy and accessible. The staff is fantastic, and goes above and beyond to make your stay memorable. We had a mix up in our flights, and had to rebook an extra night; no problem. Getting us a taxi at 4am in the morning; no problem. Directions, restaurant suggestions; no problem. The rooms are spacious by Japanese hotel standards, and the bathrooms are especially spacious and nice with separate shower areas. Even the tea provided in the rooms is a step above the rest. Will definitely stay here again on future trips to Kyoto.

Wonderful hotel in great location”

This was a great hotel to base our visit in Japan. We were originally going to stay for 5 nights and decided to extend it to 10 nights. Good shopping and lots on restaurants nearby. Located by the local train line and by lots of bus lines. However for most trains, you will need to transfer in Kyoto Station, so this was the only drawback. Very responsive staff, rooms are immaculate and enjoyed the shower/ tub combination. It met all of our needs.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The room is spacious, clean and quiet even though our room faced the main street. The service at the Front desk and the restaurant was superb. Royal Park is only 2 subway stops from Kyoto Station and minutes to Shijo Karasuma bus stop. You can walk to Nishiki Market and the surrounding areas within 20-30 mins if you are a walker. Daily breakfast which we opted to include in our room rates was western style with eggs and ham, yogurt with fruits and coffee. I will definitely stay here again and recommend my friends to Royal Park. Well done, Royal Park Hotel Kyoto Shijo!

Great breakfast and restaurant staff. Lovely rooms and ideal location”

Very conveniently located as a base to explore Kyoto. Walking distance to Nishiki Market and Arashiyama, Kinkakuji-ji and Nijo-jo are a short journey away. Only 2 stops to Kyoto Station that we used to travel to and from Tokyo and Hiroshima. The breakfast was one of the best of the hotels we stayed in during our trip to Tokyo and the croissants possibly the best I’ve ever had. I would recommend paying the extra for the premium rooms as these were much larger than you normally find in Japan and had a few extras like a daily drink coupon, better in room complimentary drinks and snack. It was also useful to have the toilet and sink/shower in separate rooms.
