Amazing hotel with the finest staff I've had the pleasure of meeting. We had an incredible room with a view of the Kamogawa river. The indoor pool was quiet and extremely relaxing with a private waterfall type view from the pool. Food was excellent with a good selection and one of the best fish sandwiches I've ever eaten. I hope to return again.

A truly incredible experience.... Our stay at the Ritz Carlton Kyoto started with a very warm welcome by Simon and the team. A welcome drink and some interesting tidbits about the hotel and it's history, then to our room. We stayed in a suite facing the Kamogawa river, an absolutely breaktaking view of the river and the mountains surrounding Kyoto. During our stay we were impressed not only by the hotel itself (world class), but with the people. Alex was there to welcome us thru our stay, and helped to arrange what would prove to be a unforgettable dinner experience at Mizuki. Kojima-san's passion for the art of preparing tempura led to some great conversations. And the extra special touch by Miura-san and team who prepared a welcome message at our seat now, being framed and soon to hang our wall at home. The property, the room, the prime location within steps of Gion, temples, shops and more, are all unrivalled...but what makes the difference, is the "touch". We've stayed at many hotels in the Marriott group but this was in a different league of its own. The hotel is amazing, a blend of traditional Japanese culture arranged in a modern, east meets west way. But the magic isn't in the "what" -- it's in the "how", and most importantly, the "who". Thanks to the GM, Xavi and the team at the Ritz Carlton Kyoto for leaving us with a memory which will stay with us long after we checked-out...we look forward to coming back one day soon. If you're looking for a truly 5-star Kyoto experience, this is it. Paul

Winter before pandemic, I and my partner visited Kyoto and it was our chance to experience Category 8 of Marriott intl. During the cold weather outside once we arrived we felt so warm from thier hospitality. Mr. Ray introduced us ahead to do in room arrival process and discussed about how we experience the city. Super touch at very first moment here. The hotel is very nice and homey with wood decoration. With a superb macaron outlet, pierre herme was greeted you at the door. We enjoyed the michelin star restaurant 'Misuki' with flawless culinary experience ever. This was our great memorable trip. RC Kyoto is second to none. Recommended.

Excellent and beautiful hotel in Kyoto! Rooms are great, service is superb! Concierge service top notch. The best hospitality you can wish for. Complimentary bicycle tours offered by the hotel in the morning are so refreshing and give you an idea how to spent your day. Breakfast both the western style buffet and Japanese style restaurant serve delicious options, excellent looking and tasting food. Spa services -- uh oh - cannot complaint but nothing to brag about...
