We had a garden-view room, which was excellent - beautiful tranquil personal Japanese garden outside the large picture window with automated blinds and lighting effects. Excellent room layout - coffee and tea maker, nice large tub and shower, ample closet space, double vanities. Very nice full service (non-buffet) breakfast.

Stunning hotel, great service

Our stay at the RC Kyoto was excellent. We were first checked into a tiny room with no drawer space at all. After calling attention to this to the wonderful Simon, the Guest relations manager, he gave us a free upgrade to a much larger room with a better view! The staff was very helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, and kind. I highly recommend this hotel, but make sure to get a larger room if you have any luggage or plan to stay longer than one night.

Nothing special for a lot of $$

It paled in comparison to our previous hotel and it was more expensive. The staff was lovely and the accommodations were fine. The breakfast buffet was satisfactory. The gym and spa areas were great - but overall a little too pricey.
