Positive Reviews

Great restaurant cuisine.

Guests rated the Restaurant Otawa highly, stating that the quality of the fare was very good. The Japanese-style food featured some Western influences, a well-done fusion that many reviewers greatly appreciated.

Facilities are nice, clean, and relaxing.

The rooms, common areas, and hotel building are clean and well-kept. The rooms were said to be spacious by Japanese standards and very comfortable. People gave special praise to the traditional hot bath and massage services of the spa, frequently citing it as a high point of their stay.

Friendly and helpful hotel staff.

The hotel employees displayed the hospitality and professionalism one would expect from a Japanese establishment. Staff members were described as warm, well-trained, attentive to the needs of travelers, and quick to respond to any problems that arose.

Negative Reviews

The location is not ideal for walking.

The hotel is a 10-minute walk from public transportation and is not within easy walking distance of Kyoto’s biggest attractions, meaning that travelers who plan to spend a lot of time exploring the area will have to rely on buses and the metro.

Beds are smaller than many will be used to.

True to most Japanese hotels, the beds in the rooms are quite small by Western standards. A number of guests found these to be uncomfortable compared to what they were used to finding in traditional Western-style establishments.

Not the greatest value for money in Kyoto.

Reviewers felt that the hotel does not present a great value for a Kyoto location. Many noted that similar establishments can be had for less. Others added that a complimentary breakfast and less basic amenities would have made the hotel worth the cost.
