"Just a quick review to say that my wife and I have just spent 3 weeks in Japan and stayed in many Ryokans and western style hotels (including the Keio Plaza Premier Grand in Tokyo which was pretty amazing too!) but the Cross Hotel in Kyoto was the best value by far. I can't speak highly enough of their courteous and attentive service, their delicious restaurant meals (we experienced both dinner and breakfast and both were great!), the cleanliness and quality of finish of all rooms/spaces and the location...wow, what a great location, close to key tourist attractions, fantastic restaurants, shopping, bus and subway stops. It's really got it all. Enjoy :)"

"Best hotel ive stayed in Japan in this trip. Location was excellent, bus stops right near the hotel that go to main attractions in Kyoto. Take a bus pass instead of the combined subway pass. We took the combined pass but found that buses were the way to go in Kyoto. Hotel room was of a decent size for Japan, amenities in the room were great, soap and shampoo were of good quality, and we were also provided with pyjamas! Breakfast was free and there were many pastries available, although it got boring after 3 days. There was also juice, coffee/tea and sometimes fruit. Highly recommend this hotel. Will stay here again if I return to Kyoto."

"Very nice and clean hotel in central Kyoto. Hotel is just a minute walk from the subway station and Hankyu train station with lots of restaurants and shops nearby. You can easily walk to Nishiki Market and the Gion district. Rooms are small but that is expected of Japanese hotels unless you spend more money. There is a coin laundry for you to wash and dry clothes so that was handy for us. Highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in Kyoto."

"This was my first trip to Kyoto and the hotel was definitely the highlight. The lobby (and entire building) smelled amazing! The staff spoke excellent english and the check in/out was smooth. They also offer luggage storage after check out and called us a cab to the station. The hotel also has a private hot spring bath thats a must to try in Japan! All in all I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kyoto! Hint: the location is amazing!!!! 500m from a high rated tea ceremony experience company (read: Maikoya), 100m from a mini market, and is super close to 3 different subway stations!"

"This is the second time I stay at this hotel in Kyoto. The great location, for its walk distance to many tourist sites, 24 hour open shops has made this hotel a great choice for staying in Kyoto. The staff are all friendly and helpful with lovely sincerity. Rooms are small but equipped with all necessary stuff like many other hotels in Kyoto or Tokyo. Though facilities wise is quite plain, I definitely would recommend this hotel to general travelers."

More about Kyoto

Where to Stay in Kyoto During Your Trip

Founded in 794, Kyoto was Japan's capital for over 1,000 years until Tokyo became the country's capital in 1868. Japan's now 8th largest city is a historical hub and a major tourist destination. Traditional Buddhist temples, Shinto shrines, geisha, and festivals make the city a cultural center worth visiting.

Despite losing its capital city title to Tokyo, Kyoto remains historically significant, and there's a lot to do, learn, and see in this ancient city. If you plan to visit Japan, Kyoto should top the list of places to visit. The city hosts 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, local people are welcoming, and Kyoto hotels are excellent. One thing that visitors should never worry about is where to stay in Kyoto.

Kyoto has plenty of hotels for visitors to choose from. Whether a visitor is looking for 5-star hotels in Kyoto, family hotels in Kyoto, or even the best budget hotels in Kyoto, they can hardly exhaust the available options.

Best Budget Hotels in Kyoto

Some visitors will opt to live in cheap hotels in Kyoto and spend more of their travel budget shopping and exploring the city. Tourists who would love to live in a central location where they can easily access most parts of the city should consider Hotel Mystays Kyoto Shijo. It's budget-friendly and only a few minutes to the Shijo Subway Station. It's also one of the many hotels near Nishiki Market Kyoto, where visitors can get their fresh farm produce.

Hotels near Kyoto station are convenient for visitors looking to explore different parts of the city. Right in front of the Kyoto station is the Kyoto Tower, which houses the Kyoto Tower Hotel, an affordable 3-star hotel in Kyoto. Atop the needle-shaped tower, guests have an unobstructed panoramic view of the city.

Visitors can also look into other cheap hotels in Kyoto, such as Enzo Kyoto Gojo, Ariston Hotel Kyoto Jujo, Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Shijo, and Kiraku Inn Kyoto.

Kyoto Luxury Hotels

In the Higashiyama Ward, to the east of Kyoto, is the Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto, one of the best luxury hotels in Kyoto. The Higashiyama district boasts many famous tourist attractions and is the best place to experience Japanese culture first-hand.

The Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine is a favorite spot for many tourists, located about three miles from Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto. The shrine honors Inari, the deity of rice. Inari is also the god of prosperity, sake, tea, and agriculture. Tradesmen and merchants worship him as he's responsible for success in business, finance, and other areas. Business people and companies have donated thousands of torii gates as a thanksgiving for their prosperity.

Besides walking through the many gates in the shrine and admiring the surroundings, visitors can hike Inari Mountain. It's undoubtedly one of the best free things to do in Kyoto. Guests living in the Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto can also explore the Kiyomizu-Dera Temple and the Bamboo Forest, which are close by.

Aman Kyoto, The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto, Arashiyama Benkei, and Ryokan Genhouin are also great options for travelers looking for the best luxury hotels in Kyoto.

Kyoto Ryokan

One of Japan's most common leisure activities is taking an outdoor bath in an onsen (natural hot springs). There are various onsens in Kyoto, and the Kurama Onsen is the most famous one. Kurama Onsen is a modern ryokan (traditional Japanese inn) located about an hour from Kyoto urban area in the serene Kurama village. Visitors yearning to soak in nature and sleep on a futon will fall in love with this Kyoto ryokan. For those seeking the best Kyoto ryokan with a private onsen, the Kurama onsen has them covered. Outdoor baths are also available for guests who would love to bathe in the onsen while enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

Tourists looking for a luxury ryokan in Kyoto can look into the Tawaraya Ryokan, the oldest of its kind in Kyoto, located in Nakagyo Ward. The Tawaraya Ryokan fully embraces the Japanese tradition with its floors covered in tatami mats. From the ryokan, guests can take a short walk to the Kyoto International Manga Museum, Ponto-Cho, and the Nishiki Market.

Gion Kyoto Hotels

If you have only read about geishas in books and desire to see one in real life, the Gion District in Kyoto is the perfect place to find them. Geishas (or geiko as they are referred to locally) are famous and highly idolized female entertainers in Japan, and you'll easily spot them due to their elaborate makeup.

Although they are usually very busy, perhaps rushing to attend a show, visitors to Kyoto might be lucky enough to spot one who's willing to pause for a selfie. Visitors can also learn about geisha's traditions and watch them perform live at a tea party.

For visitors interested in learning more about the geisha culture, a better idea would be to stay at one of the hotels in Kyoto's Gion District. In Gion, visitors can choose from extremely cheap hotels in Kyoto or, at the other end of the spectrum, Kyoto luxury hotels that cost up to $800.

Rinn Gion Yasaka is a perfect hotel for visitors who would love to stay near the bus station and easily access the Kiyomizu-Dera Temple. The hotel is located about 0.6 miles from the famous temple. The temple is not only a spectacular sight to behold, but visitors can also drink sacred water at the Otowa Spring. Behind the temple's main hall is the Jishu Shrine -- a love shrine believed to bring true love if tourists successfully navigate between the two stones in front of the shrine with their eyes closed.

Other quality hotels in Gion that travelers can consider include Yoin Hotel Kyoto Gion, Zizi, and Hotel Alza Kyoto.
