The hotel was in a weird place but we only stay for one night. It looked very grand and the staff was very polite, friendly and helpful. The room was big but it was a bit old. The breakfast was more japanese food than western but it was ok. I would come again.

Close to the conference center, in Northern Kyoto, nice neighbourhood. 5 minutes to underground station, some 30 minutes to Kyoto central station. Huge room, well cared, we had views to a close forest, great intimacy with open window. Large comfortable bed, bathroom just fair. Good service. Two different breakfast rooms, one serve, other buffet. Better choice of Japanese than of European dishes, as expected, in the buffet. Would come back.

Nice hotel. Rooms are 1950s style but well updated. Definitely larger room than typical in Japan. Breakfast buffet was good but the room where it takes place is a bit sterile
Keep in mind that you are far away from the city center. A taxi ride to Kyoto station is about $40

My first trip to japan was a business trip. We were housed in Grand Prince hotel which is bang opposite the international Conference Centre Kyoto. What a place to stay! Not in the downtown area but in the middle of a jungle. the lake nearby, the deer crossing the road in front, the stream and the very walkable area. just loved very bit of my stay there. long walks and the beautiful scenery. if you want a quiet holiday....this is the place.

Room Tip: All rooms are good...but the 5th floor onwards and with the forest view are the best.

Stayed here in 2001. Did not think much of it then - and nothing has improved in 2018.
Firstly, you are here either because you are attending a grossly overpriced conference at the international conference centre, or you are part of a bus tour group. This hotel is nearly an hour by taxi from Kyoto station, and is the middle of nowhere.

The bus tours give a clue - breakfast is like a free for all at a boarding school canteen, except they can't cope. So you can be waiting half an hour for breakfast at opening time (6:45 am). There is no gym, sauna, spa, you have to ask for an iron. It reminds me of the old basic NZ motels of the 1960s. Restaurants (apart from the disgrace of breakfast) are okay, although not cheap.

Having stayed here twice, I will never stay here again. Overpriced, over-rated, and fails to deliver.
