Editorial review:

Although somewhat dated – and too busy for some people’s taste – Rihga Royal Hotel Kyoto offers a revolving rooftop restaurant. The hotel comes with all the modern amenities expected of a first-class hotel. The location is convenient to Kyoto Station but a bit distant from the Higashiyama sightseeing district.

Located in a leisure area close to Gojo subway station as well as a temple, a tower and a museum in Kyoto. The venue is 4 km away from the city center.

Guests will find themselves a 10-minute walk from Kyoto train station. The hotel is located within 40 km distance of Itami airport.

                                                Big rooms for a Japanese hotel for a decent price. Quiet in spite of the nearby busy railway.

                                                Clean room and good access to Kyoto Station.

                                                For these Americans, the bed was too hard and difficult to sleep on.

                                                5.8

                                                location, very close from JR kyoto station

                                                the inside of bulding were old, no light for closet, very bad internet connection... our impression of this hotel was not modern.
