It is modern,spacious,clean room and very good bathroom. Bed and pillows were excellent. They give me free coffee and free use of internet. I will definitely stay again.
Good location, comfortable room, clean and elegant. no wi-fi internet (cable only)
localization in city center, nice view over the city, lots of restaurants around, friendly staff, large room maybe only the common bath was missing...
Very good location in town; excellent quality of room for the price. Reception on 1st floor and although all lifts stop briefly there, people not registered at hotel can enter it by lift, bypassing reception. In London, say, this would be a fatal flaw (I once had my room in London entered by burglars in just such a situation). In Kyoto, however, no particular risk is incurred and the door locks were very good. Information about location was not enough to reach the hotel without asking for directions.
Stayed at 2 Mystays this trip, Tokyo & Kyoto. Good wired/wifi speed, ok bfast, cramp rooms. Equate Mystays to Starbucks, reliable but better bang for the Yen is nearby w/ a bit of research. Richmond in Yokohama was great and 4 star Tokyo deals abound.
It was a comfortably sized room. Pretty decent location. Check in staff spoke English and check in and check out was a breeze. There are plenty of restaurants near by and the Fresh Mart at the end of the block was great. It was a little hard to find at first.
Very helpful staff
Appearance of the hotel, comfortable rooms, beautiful view from the window, dobrozhilatelny staff, not very delicious Breakfast is served. What, if anything, didn't you like during your stay at Aranvert Hotel Kyoto?
Good location between Kyoto station and city centre Gion street, clean room
the public transportation connection was very good. You could reach all interesting spots within a short time. Inside the room it was too hot and a regulation of the heat was not really possible.
Got upgraded to a bigger room, very friendly staff, close to gojo station, good value Location is a bit boring but close to subway
Location and cleanliness. Cramped room for a semi double.
The fantastic architecture with its central atrium around the lobby made it such a tranquil place to return to every day. The gift shop was excellent too, with higher quality souvenirs than most other shops. The mattresses were a bit too firm for us, however this seems to be the case for all the hotels we stayed in. The location is not too bad, however there was nothing of interest close to the hotel, such as restaurants or shops to walk to. The hotel did offer a shuttle bus to the station where there are a few restaurants and shops though.
The staff, cleanliness, location to the train station. Nothing noted
The first day, they give us a room in the 5 floor, wich is for smoking people. Wen we make a complain, were change for other room in the same floor. Fortuny the nex day we change to the 8 flor, no smoking and with a beautiful japan is stile
Good location near the central Kyoto St. The room was comfortable and clean. They asigned us in smoking floor, and the smoking smells was terrible. We asked for a change and they assigned a room two doors beside. Next day they changed yo a better room in other floor.
Nice lobby and facade We had booked a room for two. The bed was what is called "full" in U.S.- adequate for 1 adult to sleep comfortably. Room and bathroom were tiny (even by Japanese standards) - looks nice outside in pictures. For the price, sure there are better hotels in Kyot
Had Public Bath Had Washing Machine Helpful Staff 2nd floor was loud when activities were going on. Our room was on the 2nd floor. Staff tried to help but couldn't move us as it was booked that night, but was helpful in calming down the residents a little.
Everything in this hotel were excelent. Excelent hotel
The staff. Super friendly and willing to assist you. The location was really good. There's a little cafeteria on the bottom floor, which made it very convenient. Even though we stayed at on a non-smoking floor, you could smell cigarette smoke on the hallways.
Very comfy beds and the staff were extremely helpful. The only reason I've rated the comfort as "fair" is because it was excessively hot and therefore difficult to sleep. The air-conditioning, although being able to be turned down to 18 degrees was on heat mode throughout the entire hotel. Then, when it was off in your room, the air was extremely dry. Made the stay a little uncomfortable.
breakfast expancive, hoor and unteasty
Location Room size English speaking staff Very clean 3rd bed for a 3rd person is pull out couch & very hard. Although, I was very happy they even had a 3 person room, so it's not that much of a negative.
Great location next to station - a short walk to bus & metro. Very helpful & polite staff. Hotel decor is a little dated.
Great location Rooms are old and over-rated, furniture and carpet is dirty. This is a 3 - 3.5 star hotel, not a 4 star.
Good location. Convenient to train station. Very comfortable and relaxing. Good restaurants (although a bit pricey).
The hotel is perfectly located within the train station. Hotel staff could not be more helpful in checking in and out.
Gayet temiz, yeri çok iyi, ihtiyacınızı karşılayabilecek herşey mevcut, fiyatı makul, personeli güleryüzlü ve yardımcı
Oda büyüklüğü ve şehrin merkezinde olması büyük avantaj sağlıyor. Banyonun gemi kamarasını andırması ve eski bir otel olması.........
Tren istasyonuna çok yakın, ulaşım çok kolay; odalarda özellikle su ısıtıcısı olması güzel bir olanak, son derece rahat bir otel... 2 kişi 2 gece oldukça memnun kaldık. Odalar biraz küçük, ancak Japonya'nın genelinde küçük odalar mevcut olduğu için 2 kişi rahatlıkla konaklayabiliyor. Otelle ilgili herhangi bir sıkıntı yaşamadım.
Very well located, easy access to night entertaiment as well as sightseeing highlights. Lack of guest computer with internet in the lobby.
Cleanliness and helpfulness of staff
Efficient, centrally located (2 metro stops from Kyoto Station) hotel.
Favorite hotel we stayed at in Japan. Staff was really nice and helpful. The japenese style room was great, set up so nicely. Did not feel like a hotel, very comfortable. Clean room, bathroom was nice, mini fridge in the room, vending machines and coin laundry in the hallway. Public baths were a fun experience. Location is good, lots of shopping near by. Finding the hotel entrance was a little tricky, you need to go down the alley.
Location to Kyoto station is great. Room was pretty clean, staff spoke pretty good English. Housecleaning did a nice job. Tight layout of room. Staff had no English subway or bus map, but many other places did. Bathroom had a hairball between cabinet and sink. Hard to notice, which is why I'm sure it wasn't taken care of earlier. Elevator was frustrating at times.
Nice place, friendly staff, close to Kyoto train station and several temples within walking distance. A little far from Gion - which is where the nightlife and restaurants tend to be - but the regular buses help there.
very nice traditional japanese room, very friendly and helpful staff n.a.
Nice hotel, very friendly staff and very clean. Difficult to find - not signed Kyomachiya OR Ryokan and looks like any other building on the street.
Excellent location for us! The staff was amazing and so helpful translating and giving tips .... they helped with taxi and even to order takeout .... traditional Japanese style lodging made us feel right at home... however if you are expecting five star hotel comfort, this is not the place for you... futon traditional style beds and tiny bathroom... but we loved the experience
Small cozy hotel, conveniently located in a nice area a 15 minute walk from the Kyoto train station. Priced a little high for the rather simple room.
Good location not far from Kyoto's train station. Nice and affordable Japanese style experience! This is a bit tiny for a Western guy (especially the bathroom) but it's fun. Great and helpful staff.
Friendly staff who provided a very warm and welcoming experience. The maintain a beautiful, relaxing, and clean ryokan. It was not central enough--a good 25-30 minute walk to get to downtown, Kyoto. But it was close to the train station.
Most of the staff can speak good English and are able to provide good information about the city. I stayed in the Japanese style room alone but I think is is spacious enough for 2 person. It is much bigger than those budget hotels I had stayed in Toyko and Osaka. There is a bath tub which is good for me as I did a lot of walking in Kyoto. It provided a warm comfort to me every night after I returned to the Ryokan. The Ryokan is not exactly near to the Kyoto Station. It takes about 10-15 minutes to walk there. If you are carrying a lot of luaggages, I would suggest you take a bus there whichi is 2 bus stops away.
