Don't be put off by the apparent distance of this hotel from Kyoto, as it only a few minutes walk to the Kokusaikaikan station on the Karasuma subway line. It is then 10 minutes to the centre of Kyoto or 20 minutes to the JR shinkansen station. If you arrive by train, you can have your luggage sent to the hotel (up to a certain time), which means that you can start sightseeing without the need to first go to the hotel to check in.
The rooms are a good size, clean and comfortable and overall the hotel is well run (as has been the case for all the Prince hotels we have stayed in. Being out of the city centre also has the advantage of being able to go for walks in the countryside and to even see deer grazing at dusk. Dining choices outside the hotel are limited, however we were able to find a number of reasonable places nearby to have dinner and the concierge was able to help with suggestions.More
