Bad decor, location ok
They woke us up at 7:50 to tell us about a restaurant we asked for breakfast recommendation. The room is too small, with to storage space for a couple, a view of "the city" looks like a slam, lack of a 5-star quality, yet the service was good.
So much of your experience of Kyoto is where you are staying. I am so glad I changed hotels to stay at the Ritz one night. The service is outstanding, the location is incredible, and I had one of the nicest spa experiences of my whole life. Staying here will be one of my top memories of my lifetime. Cannot recommend highly enough.
The swimming pool.
The price to value was very high and the hotel billed me twice accidentally.
The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto, the first luxury urban resort in Japan, sits on the banks of the Kamogawa river, with sweeping views of the famous Higashiyama mountains. The resort features 134 guest rooms with traditional Japanese motifs, four restaurants and bars including modern Japanese cuisine and a spa for the ultimate rejuvenation.
