Whether you are in Kyoto for business or pleasure, Kyoto Hotel Okura is very conveniently located for both purposes. The hotel has direct link to Tozai Line subway station (Kyoto Shiyakusho-mae, i.e. Kyoto City Government Building) which will take you to the most of Kyoto's main tourist attractions.The city's main dining and drinking area, Ponto-cho and shopping area, Shijo and Karasuma are both easy walking distance from the hotel.
The room was clean and was lots of bathroom amenities that were continuously supplied every day. One drawback was lack of electricity outlets. There was no outlet on bedside tables (consoles) and were only two outlets in our room so that we had to unplug table and floor lumps in order to charge our gadgets.
One service that we truly appreciated was the hotel's luggage delivery service to Kyoto Station. It was only JPY 300 (about USD 2.50) per luggage. With this service, you can check out and do whatever you need to do during a day and just head straight to Kyoto Station to catch Shinkan-sen.More
