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 easy access, very nice streets to walk around Kyoto I liked all, it was a very good deal
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.
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.
Good location, comfortable room, clean and elegant. no wi-fi internet (cable only)
Very helpful staff
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.
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.
This hotel is part of the JR hotel group the hotel has very helpful staff who speak English well. The location can't be beat. It is central and easy to go any where from this location. Rooms are quiet and well serviced.
close to kyoto station, clean, helpfull staff can speaking english such a expensive room rate but doesn't include breakfast or dinner ?
The hotel is perfectly located within the train station. Hotel staff could not be more helpful in checking in and out.
Good location. Convenient to train station. Very comfortable and relaxing. Good restaurants (although a bit pricey).
Great location next to station - a short walk to bus & metro. Very helpful & polite staff. Hotel decor is a little dated.
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.
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.
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.
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
Everything in this hotel were excelent. Excelent hotel
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.
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.
Fantastic hotel located within an easy 10min walk of Kyoto station. Very foreigner friendly with good dinning options. Ideal hotel for tourists. Our toddler was dissapointed that he couldnt go swimming, as the minimum age is 3 years. However this is an understandable safety concern. Just keep it in mind if you have a little one that enjoys the water.
The staff, cleanliness, location to the train station. Nothing noted
Location is good, very close to Kyoto station. The staff is not willing to help you. We wanted to make a reservation at a restaurant and the staff was not willing to call the restaurant on our behalf. The first room was tiny, you couldn't even move. We had to upgrade and we got just a little more space. Very claustrophobic. Mold in the tiny bathroom.
It was hard to find the entrance
Overall the Hotel was clean and the staff was polite and professional. It's located close to Kyoto station, a restaurant, and was fairly quiet. There were cafes near the station and Eco Trip Bikes was just around the corner. My room was perfect for just being a tourist. They only had one laundry machine and dryer so you usually have to wait. My room was a little stuffy before turning on the air con unit, not sure why they don't leave a window open to circulate air. My bedroom view was basically the wall of the next building. These are all minor complaints though and if your a tourist your going to be outside anyway.
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.
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 and cleanliness. Cramped room for a semi double.
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?
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.
Good location between Kyoto station and city centre Gion street, clean room
Got upgraded to a bigger room, very friendly staff, close to gojo station, good value Location is a bit boring but close to subway
Very close to Kyoto Station and easy to find The price
Very nice hotel located close to the railway station. The room is quite small (but the size is normal in Japan) but well equipped.
western breakfast buffet was a bit poor
Seems much more comfy and maybe newer than Dormy Inn in Tokyo, very conveniently located near the JR station, nice noodle soop The spa should have been better decorated and arranged
Good service. Limited space to put my luggage. It would be better if the room can be enlarge....
The location just across the street from Kyoto station was fabulous. Also close to shopping and some of the major sights. The bed was good and firm. They had CNN on TV. The room was tiny, with one side of the double bed touching the wall. Still, we managed. Although we specifically required a non smoking room we were assigned a smoking room. At our demand we were assigned another room which felt cleaner with no sign of smoking, but it was still a smoking room on a smoking floor. The room was clean, but the carpet at the front desk was very stained and should be cleaned or replaced. There was no breakfast.
