great location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 10, 2009

This is the second hotel where I stayed in Kyoto as the offert in Westin was only for the week end.
This is a modern confortable hotel, probably7 not as luxurious as Westin, but definitly better locateed.
It's just a few steps away from the main railway station in Kyoto which means you are next to most the main busses for the city excursions and trains for the close towns excursions.
I found an offert in the web and paid 50 euro per night without breakfast.
Breakfast was about 9 euros which, unless you really intend to eat a lot, is not worth.

Unique Quality: Location and breakfast buffet.

Directions: Go out of the main station of Kyoto and wait for the shuttle bus of the hotel which runs every 15 minuts.

"Warm smiles at the door, and tasteful decor inside - every effort has been made to make you feel at home in this 1,200 year-old town. Why do we try so hard? Because at RIHGA Royal Hotel Kyoto, we think even brief encounters are forever."
So far the hotel`s promotion - but its perfectly true!
The former KYOTO GRAND HOTEL is a big and very efficent two-cultural home. Rooms in many different sizes (you pay also per size !) and in international and/or Japanese styles.
Rhiga Royal Kyoto Hotel offers 2 Japanese, 1 Chinese and a western restaurant, an indoor pool and a massage- and sauna-parlour .

Unique Quality: Centrally located, convenient business-style hotel with many amenities. Good, very japanese service.

Directions: Centrally located near the JR- Kyoto station (free shuttle service, see map picture 3+4 )

The Rihga Royal is a beautiful five-star hotel located in the heart of Kyoto. Each room is tastefully decorated with simple, yet elegant furniture. Sliding doors on the windows covered in shoji (rice paper) provide privacy while still allowing the sunlight to filter through. Fully paneled doors can be pulled across the windows at night for complete privacy. Typical Western-style rooms are available, as well as traditional Japanese style rooms.

There are many restaurants to chose from in the Rihga Royal Hotel! The Top of Kyoto boasts French dishes (as well as American breakfasts) on the 14th floor of the hotel. Stunning views of Kyoto can be seen from each table! Corbeille Coffee House offers light meals and quick service, while the Granada Bar serves as a unique Spanish-accented hotel bar perfect for lounging for hours!

The hotels amenities also include an indoor heated pool, sauna, karaoke room, beauty salon and barber shop, delicatessen, and even a mini shopping corner!

The elegance and amenities provided by the Rihga Royal Hotel will add comfort and luxury to your unforgettable vacation in Kyoto!
