Kein W-Lan im Zimmer
Die Lage ist ideal. An einer der Hauptstraßen gelegen, nahe an allen wichtigen Orten (Shopping, Sehenswürdigkeiten), gut mit Bus und U-Bahn zu erreichen und doch ruhig. Mehrere Einkaufmöglichkeiten für Lebensmittel und alle Dinge des täglichen Bedarfs innerhalb von 500 m. Ebenso günstige Essensmöglichkeiten für jeden Geschmack. Kostenloser Internet-PC. Trotz zentraler Lage sehr ruhig. Da fällt mir nichts ein :-)
Die Mitarbeiter sprechen überdurchschnittlich gut Englisch und unterstützen den Gast bei der Verwirklichung seiner Pläne in Kyoto effizient und zuvorkommend. Die Lage meines Zimmer innerhalb des Hotels hat mir nicht gefallen; zudem verstehe ich nicht, wieso man für die einmalige Benützung des Fitnessraumes noch rund EUR 30 bezahlen sollte.
freundlich, nett, zuvorkommend fitness- 20€ eintritt für 10m2 raum mit 2 steppern! Sollte im preis drin sein! WiFi ist ein muß!
LAge, direkt mitten in der Stadt.
zentrale Lage und Freundlichkeit der Angestellten Preis-Leistungsverhältnis, kein Frühstück inklusive, langsames Internet im Foyer
Ausgezeichnete und ruhige Lage, direkt an einer zentralen U-Bahn Station. In der Nähe vom tourstischen Zentrum (Restaurants, Nachtleben, Fluss, Gion, Tempel, Einkaufsstraßen). Gratis Intenet in der Lobby. Personal spricht Englisch und ist hilfsbereit. Taxifahrt vom Bahnhof dauert 10min und kostet <2000 Yen
This hotel is located in the beautiful hills above Kyoto within walking distance of the train station. It is a lovely building, however the upkeep is showing strain. The hallway carpets were stained, the room was slightly worn looking, though clean. The staff were helpful but seemed somewhat over-worked. There was no shuttle service into town; things that I would have expected from a luxury hotel. Aside from this, the hotel stay was quite enjoyable as it is a beautiful hotel. It is just not being kept up to the standard one would expect.
The Grand Prince Hotel in Kyoto, Japan was one of the best experiences I have ever had in staying at a hotel. The room was spacious, and the bathroom was simply amazing. The staff promoted saving our environment with free breakfast if you reused your towels- what a concept! The gift store was better than many shops downtown, and the walking paths made exercising a joy. The subway was minutes away, and the staff made finding the sites easy. I have no complaints, which is rare.
Room size No
The property is beautiful and well maintained. It's very convenient to the subway. The staff is super helpful. What's not to like? There are few businesses around the hotel (restaurants, bars, etc...). This means that going out for a bite to eat means eating at the hotel (expensive), taking a taxi, or taking the subway.
Zentral gelegenes Hotel. U-Bahn in unmittelbarer Nähe. Bahnhof und Zentrum nicht weit weg. Gut ausgestattete Zimmer und schönes öffentliches Bad. Bin gezielt nach 4 Jahren in das Hotel zurückgekommen und bin nicht enttäuscht worden...
Das Onsen = japanisches Bad. Rezeption zum Teil sehr mangelhafte Englischkenntnisse.Im Zimmer fehlte Ablagemöglichkeiten für Wäsche. Wäre neben dem Schrank als Regal probblemlos möglich. Im Bad kaum Ablagefläche.
This is a lovely hotel in the center of Kyoto. It's a short distance from most sights. The rooms are clean and of descent size. Breakfast was included. Good buffet breakfast.
+ Classy Place + Staff did a great job of giving travel tips and directions + Good access to public transportation +/- No cultural surprises - Barely enough space in the room to sit luggage - Not a wide choice of restauraunts in the immediate vacininty ( but plenty withing walking distance)
Conveniently located. Clean and well appointed. Very secure Helpful staff. No problems.
We enjoyed our stay and were particularly pleased with the clean room and bathroom. The lobby is a bit kitschy and somewhat odd but I found the staff to be extremely helpful in providing information on bus routes, restaurants etc. I highly recommend this hotel.
The hotel is clean comfortable and conveniently located. Easy access to the train stations. The front desk staff is knowledgeable helpful and friendly. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit Kyoto.
The Hotel Monterey Kyoto was a great location for our weekend getaway in Kyoto. It was within walking distance of Nijo Castle (which I hightly recommend), the Imperial Palace, and the central Kyoto shopping areas. There is a subway station very close to the hotel so travel was easy. The subway stop is only a few away from Kyoto Station so it's easy to navigate. There are several Starbucks in the immediate area and a post office in case you need an ATM. In Japan if you are an international traveler it can be difficult to use a bank ATM; the post office has an ATM that accepts almost all cards. The staff at the hotel were very kind and welcoming, they even wiped off our luggage when we arrived b/c it had gotten wet in the light rain while we walked from the subway station and they had plenty of umbrellas for guests to use (for those of us who didn't come prepared). The concierge was friendly and helpful and even called the airline to double check something about our flight home and found...
Good value for the money. The property has pleasantly quirky decor, and is spotless and well-maintained. The English-speaking concierge, front desk, and bell staff are all very courteous and helpful. The rooms are well-furnished and large by Japanese standards, and the bathrooms are functional for both Japanese and Western users. The Spa on the 13th (top) floor of the hotel is beautiful and well worth the extra fee.
We would highly recommend this hotel for location and service. Hotel Monterey is only three years old which was one of the reasons we chose it. The rooms are quite small but had everything we needed. The staff and concierge did everything we asked of them. Within several blocks there are three or more Starbucks, several other coffee / pastry shops and a very nice grocery store as well as several mini marts. There are many restaurants within walking distance and taxis are readily available. Kyoto train station was no more than 10-12 minutes by taxi. We did not use the Spa but did check it out and was lovely and a pretty good value. We booked a day tour through the hotel and had excellent service with the tour operator.
I don't think I've ever slept so well. Our room was fairly small, but extremely clean and comfortable, with a wonderfully luxurious bed. The hotel is beautifully decorated. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and were able to assist us in English. The location is also pretty good: it's on a nondescript commercial boulevard, but is walking distance from a good number of restaurants, temples and shrines. This hotel isn't cheap, but it makes for a very comfortable stay.
The Hotel Monterey Kyoto was by far one of the best hotels I've ever been to. From the moment I walked through the lobby their staff was beyond helpful, which is a great comfort for any foreign traveler. Their rooms were comfortable and clean with sufficient space for leisure or spacing out a nights worth of souvenir shopping. I absolutely recommended this hotel.
The fantastic architecture with its central atrium around the lobby made it such a tranquil place to return to every day. The gift shop was excellent too, with higher quality souvenirs than most other shops. The mattresses were a bit too firm for us, however this seems to be the case for all the hotels we stayed in. The location is not too bad, however there was nothing of interest close to the hotel, such as restaurants or shops to walk to. The hotel did offer a shuttle bus to the station where there are a few restaurants and shops though.
Die Angestellten, die Sauberkeit, die Lage zum Bahnhof. Nichts bekannt
Am ersten Tag, bekamen ein Zimmer im 5. Stock, dem Raucherbereich. Als wir beschwerten, bekamen wir andere Zimmer im gleichen Stock. Am nächsten Tag wechselten wir glücklicherweise in den 8. Flor, im Nichtraucherbereich mit schönem japanischen Ambiente.
Gute Lage in der Nähe des Central Kyoto St. ab. Das Zimmer war komfortabel und sauber. Sie haben uns umgelegten in Nichtraucheretage, und der Zigarettenrauch war schrecklich. Wir baten um ein anderes Zimmer und wir bekamen ein Zimmer neben zwei Türen. Am nächsten Tag yo ein besseres Zimmer gewechselt wurde in einem anderen Stock.
Had Public Bath Had Washing Machine Helpful Staff 2nd floor was loud when activities were going on. Our room was on the 2nd floor. Staff tried to help but couldn't move us as it was booked that night, but was helpful in calming down the residents a little.
Everything in this hotel were excelent. Excelent hotel
Nice lobby and facade We had booked a room for two. The bed was what is called "full" in U.S.- adequate for 1 adult to sleep comfortably. Room and bathroom were tiny (even by Japanese standards) - looks nice outside in pictures. For the price, sure there are better hotels in Kyot
Great location! Easy access to bus lines and subways. The bathroom is quite large relative to the room size. Effective use of space. They can store your luggage for you free of charge if you arrive early. I did this and it was a huge lifesaver. No minibar, but I never use that stuff anyway.
It's fine for a three star, but you are paying for five star which it doesn't live up to. It's tricky one hostess was very helpful and another one yelled at us for canceling a cab, it was very strange. The beds are so hard, it was terrible. Also they don't have a bag room so the lobby is absolutely filled with bags because of all the tour groups. Also bar extremely overpriced. Overall it is extremely overpriced for what you get. Use that same amount and go stay in one of the traditional hotels in the cute part of town.
Die gute Lage und das nette Ambiente Etwas zu teures Frühstück
Die Lage ist perfekt, um zu Fuß zu den Restaurants, Geschäfte, Busse und U-Bahnen zu gelangen. Das Personal und die Unterkunft waren hervorragend. Der Preis war sehr vernünftig. extra für zwei Einzelbetten anstelle von einem Doppelbett.
Zimmer war an sich geräumig uns sahen auf den ersten blick gut aus. Auf den zweiten Blick war alles sehr abgewohnt, vor allem im Bad. Sehr viel Schimmel in den Fugen, Waschbecken mit Sprüngen.
Das ist keine Beschwerden, aber es wäre schön, dass es noch mehr Leihfahrräder gäbe.
The staff. Super friendly and willing to assist you. The location was really good. There's a little cafeteria on the bottom floor, which made it very convenient. Even though we stayed at on a non-smoking floor, you could smell cigarette smoke on the hallways.
Great staff with probably the best english skills in Kyoto. They provided great service throughout our stay. Free shuttlebus to Kyoto station. The hotel is a bit old and the interior looks old and worn wth stains, etc. The hotel is located a bit far from the main streets with shops and restaurants. You need a bike or the subway to get home from the central part of Kyoto.
The efficiency and kindness of the staff
The staff were very polite and eager to assist any way that they could The bed in my room - like the docor - dated to the 1970's. Ridiculous that you have to pay for use of the pool. The food is ridiculously expensive and sub standard. 600 yen for a cup of coffee and they poured less than half of a tea cup.
Big clean room at a very reasonable price. Friendly, helpful English speaking staff. Beautiful waterfall outside the bar area. Nothing.
Beautiful lobby, excellent location. good restaurant
Great location next to station - a short walk to bus & metro. Very helpful & polite staff. Hotel decor is a little dated.
Location Room size English speaking staff Very clean 3rd bed for a 3rd person is pull out couch & very hard. Although, I was very happy they even had a 3 person room, so it's not that much of a negative.
Great location Rooms are old and over-rated, furniture and carpet is dirty. This is a 3 - 3.5 star hotel, not a 4 star.
breakfast expancive, hoor and unteasty
Very comfy beds and the staff were extremely helpful. The only reason I've rated the comfort as "fair" is because it was excessively hot and therefore difficult to sleep. The air-conditioning, although being able to be turned down to 18 degrees was on heat mode throughout the entire hotel. Then, when it was off in your room, the air was extremely dry. Made the stay a little uncomfortable.
The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is located within walking distance to temples, museums, shopping, subway, and the Gion district in Kyoto. Great value!
I liked nothing in this hotel except the location of the hotel (in the touristic area) The japanese style room is really small without any decoration and the bathroom is also reallly too small. Compared to the price of the room, it is really too expensive. The worst rapport quality/price I have never had.
Location No elevators
Pleasant, helpful staff and great location. Easy to access via public transport and short walks to many sightseeing spots. The toilet did smell a little but seemed clean enough - perhaps old drains?
Super friendly staff, hot Japanese bath, free bicycle
The service was warm and friendly - the manager? lady was very welcoming and set us at ease re language / english - she also made a point of having friendly conversation - offered suggestions re places to visit Also location was superb for visiting temples and other sites. Restaurant available for breakfast - internet/laptop available as did not have laptop room very small for 2 people - entrance a bit cramped -
