The hotel is great, rooms are really wonderful. The location is the only real drawback, too far from the attractions and you have to travel through some parts of Kyoto that look unattractive. If you decide to stay there, request a room facing the garden. Skip the museum across the street...

I agree completely with the other reviews.
Beautiful hotel, and absolutely wonderful rooms.
The only thing I did not like is the location.
I prefer to stay more in the middle of town or in the Gion district as I do not want to take a taxi or bus, prefer to walk and then this hotel is not so nicely located.

The place was excellent. Great service, clean, and a wonderful modern decor -- nice balance of minimalism and natural feel. This was the best hotel we stayed at in Japan (except for 1 night at the Hakone Ginyu). Definitely recommend this place.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Hyatt Regency Kyoto for 5 nights during the first week of April. It was WONDERFUL! Our king-bedded room had the beautifully upholstered headboard you see in the web site photos, the toilet in the room was an experience in and of itself. And Oh my........the shower. WOW. Incredible. Great water pressure, great hardware, great everything.

The lobby is really beautiful, and the internet access was free in the lobby, so we spent a good amount of time there. The Italian restaurant, Trattoria Sette was good, although not up to the par I was expecting after reading so many good reviews about the pizza here at TripAdvisor.

We were in Kyoto at the peak of cherry blossom season, so it was great that our room overlooked a zen garden and a gigantic cherry tree. After reading so many reviews of the place, I was surprised that the locationd didn't seem as out of the way as some reviewers/forum entries had described. There are actually many small shops and convenience stores within walking distance. The cab rides to and from Gion and Pontocho at night cost about 1000 yen each way, which wasn't too bad.

We had a few cab drivers that didn't know about the hotel, so then we' d say Sanjusangendo Temple, which was right next door.........it's a great landmark to use if the taxi doesn't know where you want to go.

The breakfasts at the grill downstairs were good; lots of juices, yogurts, cereals, fruits, even pancakes, eggs, ham and sausage.

This hotel was perfect for us. The staff were very courteous, EVERYTHING is brand new and totally state of the art. We highly recommend it.

Restaurants we tried and loved were Mikaku and Ozawa in Gion, and Misogi-Gawa in Pontocho. Kyoto is incredibly beautiful, as were the people. Everyone was extremely helpful, outgoing and friendly. The temples are awe-inspiring, and Maruyama Goen was a wonderful park to take part in the joy of hanami. What a great time we had!
