In Kyoto, we stayed at a convenient hotel that was only a two minute walk from Kyoto Station, Kyoto Century Hotel. Being so close to our main mode of transportation made it easy for us to move our luggage from point A to point B when needed. To be clear, Kyoto Station is more than just a station, it’s a shopping center and eating venue.
The shopping area is called Porta, located in the middle of Kyoto Station. In fact, the entrance to Porta was just before the entrance to Kyoto Station, making it even easier to access from our hotel. Every morning we would visit Starbucks to start our day off properly.
Although not unique to our hotel, right outside was this umbrella holder and only available to grab if you had a key (given by the hotel).
This was the main lobby and behind it was the restaurant/breakfast buffet. If you choose to stay here the breakfast buffet is not included with your stay however, we highly recommend you purchasing it! The food was phenomenal!
After a nice dinner (or even breakfast), desserts are available on the way to the elevators.
We got the comfort room standard twin. The bed was comfy and it was perfect for our 3 night stay in Kyoto. What Mary loved about the room was the free toiletries EVERYDAY and how it was all full size! Also, there was a bidet in the restroom!
