This place is so peaceful and Beautiful, I have spent much time here also visit the private gardens within the grounds walk up the main pathway then its to the right you must have your passport and you have to book there, these gardens are fantastic
The palace is no longer used and all the buildings are closed. You can walk around the grounds and see the outside of the buildings but that's about it. Considering everything else we saw this was a let down.
Imperial palace was amazing. We paid for a palace guide at the palace entrance and so glad we did pay for the guide. The guides english was very good and pointed out so many subtle things we would have missed. Guided tour of the Palace was the highlight of our trip to Kyoto :-)
The palace itself was undergoing renovations at the time we went, so we could not go inside. However, we were allowed to walk the grounds and they were beautiful and so peaceful. We were able to see a few cherry blossoms, though it was cold.
Closed during my stay for Monday thru Wednesday, but open for Japanese dignitaries (which makes sense). But not very good if you only have a limited amount of time. So plan accord. Property is massive.
Properly check the schedule when the Imperial Palace open. unfortunately during our visit, the palace closed. however it is still nice to stroll around the garden area which very wide and beautiful in autumn.
A small apartment with very simple cooking and laundry capability and a wonderful deep bathtub. Plenty of room for our stuff, not cramped. Three bus lines from Kyoto Station (4, 17, 102) stop right in front. Recommend getting a daily bus pass when you arrive. Located right next to Imperial Palace grounds. Contrary to most tourist guidebooks, the Palace is open on a walk-in basis without a reservation, maybe because of the Olympics, and since you can't get into the Tokyo palace, this is your chance to see what one looks like -- amazing.
Very nice boutique hotel in central location. Apartment-like rooms with separate bedrooms, living room, and fully equipped kitchen, suitable for families and extended stays. Very clean and quiet. Fast and secure WiFi. Great water pressure. Very safe property and neighborhood. Several good restaurants and public transportation in walking distance. Kyoto Imperial palace and Nijo Castle in walking distance. Central market and shopping district 15 minutes by public transport.
I really liked the central location. It was an easy walk to Ni-jo jo (Nijo castle) and the Kyoto Imperial Palace as well. Good access to public transport (buses, subway). It was also an extremely comfortable hotel to stay in and the hotel staff were very friendly. I was able to understand almost everything they said in Japanese but when I couldn't, they also repeated the information for me in English. I will definitely go back here when I come to Kyoto!
This hotel was booked fairly last minute when I realized I had forgotten to add a second night at our ryokan. The price was right and the location/hotel quality surprised me. It was walking distance to Gion and the Nishiki Market. It was a little bit farther to sites like the Imperial Palace, but it was comfortable with great staff. I loved walking northeast of the hotel into the narrow streets along the river that was full of lovely places to eat.
Ken and his assistant were very helpful. Our GPS got us a little lost as we approached the property & Ken came out to meet us & guided us the rest of the way. We are a family of five & had ample room to spread out. We parked our car at the property & used public transportation the entire stay. There’s a few decent restaurants near the property & the Nijo Castle & Imperial Palace are in reasonable walking distance.
Great value and amazing location. It is a gorgeous and luxurious hotel (+ free coffee in a beautiful "living lobby"). We were surprised it was this cheap: highly recommended. Rooms are beautiful and the location (next to Teramachi and Kawaramachi, close to Sanjo, the Imperial Palace and the Kamogawa river) is simply perfect. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We could also check-in around 1PM. Highly recommended.
Our most favorite hotel that we’ve stayed in our 10 day Japan Trip! The room is clean, very stylish ryokan/japanese style room, and the Toilet is clean! Few minutes away from Subway station and walking distance to Kyoto Imperial Palace. Staff are nice and they responded quickly in our concern.
The location. Only 5 to 7 min walk to the nearest station and also within walking distance to Nijo castle and to Kyoto Imperial Palace (only if you prefer to walk). Plus free laundry. I wasn't expecting that.
