Very nice hotel. Highly recommended from a world traveler.
Great location! Easy access to bus lines and subways. The bathroom is quite large relative to the room size. Effective use of space. They can store your luggage for you free of charge if you arrive early. I did this and it was a huge lifesaver.
No minibar, but I never use that stuff anyway.
Hard beds, bad English
It's fine for a three star, but you are paying for five star which it doesn't live up to.
It's tricky one hostess was very helpful and another one yelled at us for canceling a cab, it was very strange. The beds are so hard, it was terrible. Also they don't have a bag room so the lobby is absolutely filled with bags because of all the tour groups. Also bar extremely overpriced. Overall it is extremely overpriced for what you get. Use that same amount and go stay in one of the traditional hotels in the cute part of town.
With a stay at The Royal Park Hotel Kyoto Sanjo, you'll be centrally located in Kyoto, steps from Pontocho and 4 minutes by foot from Kawaramachi. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk.
