    Very good location, a minute walk to Kyoto station. Staff are very accomodating and friendly. Very convenient that they allow us to leave our luggage before and after check in.

    No aiconditioner. We were told that the room they gave us has only airconditioner during winter. It was hot in the room even winter. Suggested that we open our windows if we feel hot or transfer to the inly available room which was bigger for Y6000/nite. No other option was offered for the inconvenience.

    This was my third stay at Kyoto Century Hotel - all three for slightly different purposes (business, family holiday and single/solo stay), and I have quickly recommended it to others. Proximity, value for money, size of the rooms, overall facilities and service - Kyoto Century Hotel remains my 'favourite' hotel in Kyoto.

    The location was excellent, adjacent to the jr Kyoto rail station and the main shops and restaurants in the area. THe rooms were large and comfortable, although becoming a bit tired/old. Staff were very helpful.

    We arrived in time for the Christmas lighting ceremony, which was very nice. The staff was very helpful and accommodating for our language issues ( we speak only a little Japanese).

    Though the hotel is very modern and nicely appointed I was disappointed there was no wifi available. That's pretty common in Japan, but even the wired lan connection was very old school, requiring the hookup of a modem using a phone line into a jack on the desk. At the least a simpler lan ethernet connection would be helpful. But we liked the hotel otherwise.

    reasonable pricing. convenient location if you travel from Kyoto station. Otherwise quite far from the center.

    no-wifi, not even in the lobby! Impossible!!.

    The location just next to the Kyoto Station was great. There was a female hotel staff who's always at the lobby area greeting guests, ready to provide help and offer information. It was a joy to see her every morning and she made us feel very well looked after. Our room was comfortable and spacious, we couldn't ask for more.

    Very good

    Location is ideal considering that most attractions are spread out in the city, so staying near a bus/train/subway station makes it more convenient in terms of exploring the city and its different attractions.

    I got a so-called non-smoking room, but the bathroom stinked of nasty cigarette smoke. Either the previous guest smoked in there, trying to dodge the smoke detector, or the exhaust shaft incidentally brought in the nasty smell from other rooms/floors. But it was impossible to stay in the bathroom for longer than a minute... luckily the two doors separating the bathroom from the room avoided the smell to infest the rest of the bedroom.
