                It was not my first time at the Kyoto Hotel Okura and I always enjoy the perfect service and the simple elegance.

                Staff very polite and helpful. Rooms are very clean. Location is excellent: very close to the river - Pontocho and Gion areas are within minutes of walking distance

              • Family with children
                7.4

                The gym is not small and opening hours are not convenient.

                Great service!

                For today's standard, the interior of the hotel needs to be updated..specially the bathroom!

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Helpful staff, location

                The policy of not quoting the money from the first time of booking, I payed some taxes like consumption and service. I wish to book a room including all taxes and price in advance like my other bookings of other hotels.

                The location of the Okura was wonderful, and we could walk to many places. Although the large avenues were fairly typical of cities anywhere, the small streets in the area were full of older buildings, shops, artisans, coffee shops, etc. The staff was very attentive and courteous. After a long day of sightseeing, it was very relaxing to return to the hotel.

                The staff were fantastic and could not do enough for us. There was always someone on hand to help us with whatever we wanted, whether booking a tour, giving advice about trains or restaurants or checking luggage through. The view from our east side room was superb.

                The hotel was very comfortable. We were upgraded to a deluxe room at no additional cost, which was a pleasant surprise. The location is excellent, a short taxi drive from most popular sites, and walking distance from shopping.
