Everything about this hotel was great especially considering what we paid in comparison to other hotels we've stayed at in Kyoto and Japan (I'm looking at you kyoto tower hotel)
Area is close enough to a lot of the good stuff, we rented bikes which we used to get everywhere.
To buy knock against it is the really head mattresses, but that seems to be a Japan thing I it's on par with other hotels in that respect
During the registration I mentioned that we were traveling to commemorate our wedding aniversary
we were upgraded to a huge top floor suite
My wife loved it
Great hotel staff
I also recommend the excellent dinner buffet
"Brighton Hotel Kyoto a gem for business travelers"
Check in was terrific - was accompanied to the room something I do not normally prefer, however the individual who accompanied me was informative, sincere, and not just going through the motions. She advised me of all the room and hotel ameneties and was genuinely interested in my having a pleasant stay. Dinner was quite nice - options were explained (in English) and the food was good. You're normally pressing your luck in Japan when you need to have a rush breakfast - which I did on my final morning prior to heading to the Train Station - however the staff was accomodating as I needed to grab a roll, coffee, and pay ASAP, and I was able to do so w/o raising an eyebrow. Concierge and front desk very helpful. The rooms are clean, large, and quite luxerious for the price. Highly recommended!
I participated in a conference last week at the ICC, Kyoto. This hotel is located at a 2 minute walking distance from the ICC, just across the street. My main consideration while booking this hotel had been this reason. When I reached the hotel, I was struck by its extraordinary ambience, the quiet neighborhood, the excellent staff and food facilities, besides the fact that it is actually very well connected to the Kyoto downtown and the Kyoto station through the subway (Karusima line). Ask for a mountain facing room, is available. It ensures that you have an excellent view of the morning sunrise over the hills every morning! Wonderful view! The Christmas tree in the centre of the courtyard, and the soft music in the corridors the moment you stepped outside the room added a sense of comfort.
