The Brighton is an upscale hotel that does most things right. It is a six floor facility that is in excellent condition. It has nice amenities and a very attentive staff. There are several high quality restaurants on site, and the hotel offers shuttles every 20 minutes to/from the nearest subway station (a 7 minute ride). On the downside, those...

The Brighton Hotel next to the Imperial Palace, is too far away from the action. It's a big generic hotel, the staff are well-trained and efficient, the dining is good, bedrooms are large and comfortable. There's nothing much to distinguish the hotel from any other hotel, except perhaps the quite kitch (and expensive) Veuve Clicquot bar with matching VC lamps,...

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in this hotel as part of our honeymoon trip to Japan. This hotel is ideally located to visit main Kyoto attractions. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet has two options between international breakfast buffet and Japanese. The hotel is tastefully decorated and quite luxurious. Rooms are spacious and very...

The place is not the most modern/contemporary looking style-wise, reminds me of something late 90s which is nothing wrong with it. Staffs are super nice and communication wasn't too hard neither. The room is nice size for Kyoto standard, I love the matcha bowl and tools ready for you to make a nice bowl of matcha everyday. Bed was comfortable...

This was our last stay in Japan and it was nice to finally have a large, spacious room. The amenities were good but we had grown accustomed to having an on-site onsen or sento (hotel bath). The bathtub made up for this, but we had to draw our own baths as opposed to just walking downstairs in a robe. The...

We stayed here almost as an accident because every hotel we looked at was fully booked due to the cherry blossom season, and it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. All the rooms open up into a huge, bright central atrium where you can look down onto the ground floor cafe, removing the claustrophobic, stale-smelling dark and dingy hallways...

Staying in Nishijin District

Neighbourhood Profile
Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.
