This hotel was excellent, we certainly didn't expect anything this nice when we were booking for the price that we paid for the hotel. The lobby was gorgeous and the service was excellent. We had our bags forwarded from Tokyo and they were placed in our room for us before we arrived to check in. They had all the amenities you could ask for, including self serve laundry and an onsen, besides all the available toiletries including a razor, toothbrush with toothpaste, q-tips etc. It's about a 20 min or so walk to the main station, but the hotel is convenient to a subway entrance if you wanted to take that instead. We were easily able to access everything in Kyoto. The room was more than enough room for the two of us. Great experience! Thank you!

Hello. Thank you very much for the review on your stay with us.
We are very happy to hear that you were satisfied with our services. It is our duty to make our guests happy and offer the best services.
Our hotel is located in the central city Kyoto and the subway station and bus stops near by would be a great help to access to most famous places in Kyoto, such as temples, Gion district, and Shijo shopping street. We hope you had a nice stay in Kyoto and had a great trip to Japan.
Thank you again for your stay with us and we are looking forward to seeing you in the near future.

We reserved our room a while back for a great rate and overall I think we got a great deal. I think the location, staff (super nice), and spa are above average. There is some transport (subway, bus, or 20+ min walk) to Gion District and so if that doesn't appeal to you this might not be the best location. The hotel is close (~5 min walk) to the Gojo subway stop so it fit our needs perfectly.

The room that we booked was small but not uncomfortable or unexpected. The breakfast buffet was included in our room rate and it was fine. There was a mix of Japanese and Western breakfast options to choose from - all OK but I would not pay the going rate (1700+ yen/person) if we had to pay in addition to the room.

Please note, the bed is ultra, ultra firm so if your preference/needs are for a little padding it might be better look for other locations. I improvised and slept on the comforter with a couple extra pillows, but for a softy like me this was tough. The ryokans we stayed at had pallets that seemed more cushioned. Perhaps the hotel could invest in a few memory foam mattress pads available upon request? Maybe they already do and I didn't ask...
Overall, pretty good deal!

I enjoyed my stay at this lovely hotel. The staff was most welcoming and helpful. The room on the top floor was comfortable, quiet and spotless and just loved the beautiful gown, the best of all I had in various hotels in Japan. The Spa is absolutely wonderful with relaxing ambiance and views towards Kyoto Tower, and quality toiletries. The location between the JR Train Station and major Shopping/Night Life district is also very convenient.

Room Tip: 13th floor is great

Thank you very much for staying in Aranvert Hotel Kyoto and giving us the positive feedback.
We are so glad to hear that you are satisfied with your stay in our hotel.
As you mentioned, the Kyoto Tower can be seen from the spa for female. You can relax in the bath while enjoying the beautiful night view of Kyoto city.
Our hotel is located in a convenient place. Kyoto Station is walking distance, and subway station and bus stops are also very close to the hotel. You can go to sightseeing places and the downtown (shopping area) quite easily.

Thank you for spending your precious time to leave the comment.
We hope we will see you again in Aranvert Hotel Kyoto.

Nice big room compared to some other hotels we’ve stayed at in Japan. Good central location. Washing machines available which was great as we were travelling for a few weeks. Nothing super flash but very comfortable. Would recommend this place to people coming to Kyoto.

I stayed here during my visit in Kyoto, Japan. It's a worth it stay, because hotels in Kyoto are known for expensive rates. Rooms are even smaller than those hotels in Tokyo. I love how clean the room is. They also a nice public bath on top of the hotel, it's very serene. Breakfast aren't as big as American Hotels, but it's better than all the hotels in Japan. A lot of food and it's delicious!
