Great”

Clean, good food, good service, comfortable

The Aranvert Hotel provides a very pleasant stay. The rooms are clean, comfortable and have nice extra features such as a washing line in the bathroom. The hotel is only a short walk from Kyoto station and is easily found as it is just one turning off the main road leading from the station. The restaurant is convenient, provides good food, and has pleasant staff. One slight issue was the lack of WiFi meaning that despite offering free internet access, I was not actually able to gain internet access as I only had a smart phone with me. However I'm sure the internet would be fine for netbooks and the like with ethernet ports. There was also an issue in my case with copies of the required documents not getting through to the hotel despite having sent them but that said, the staff coped very well and did not cause me any problems because of it. All in all, a very nice place to stay. Centrally located and great for tourists such as myself.

Clean, comfortable, quiet and good value”

My family of three stayed here for two days mid-week. Our room and the hotel generally was very clean. Despite overlooking the main road our room was nearly dead quiet. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the location, being close to a subway station, was convenient. It was, in fact, easily possible to walk to the main station in about 15 minutes. Because we stayed mid-week our room rate was much reduced. Considering the quality of our room and of the hotel generally, our stay was really good value. We would definitely stay in the Aranvert hotel again should we ever return to Kyoto.

"We would definitely stay in the Aranvert hotel again should we ever return to Kyoto." It is very appreciated. Have you enjoyed your family trip? The road called Gojo-dori facing the hotel is the main road, but since around here is the office town, the night is very calm. Kyoto main street "Kyoto station" and "Shijo station" is also 10 minutes to 15 minutes on foot and 1 station on the subway is convenient. If you have a chance again, please stay over. We look forward to.

Great location, peaceful rest”

The Aranvert Hotel was all one could want in clean, quiet, convenient accommodation. It's located close to the Karasuma subway line and a short walk from Kyoto station, has a fantastic Japanese bath and very large and varied breakfast buffet. I was happy to find that despite being such a large hotel, that it was very quiet and that I was able to control the heat myself, not something I found in other Japanese business hotels.

No problems with internetbooking and the wish for twinroom no smoking. Big bathtub! stunning view over Kyoto and Kyoto tower. two queensizebeds and one extrabed. the extrabed was actually more soft than the other two.
really expensive breakfast!! not possible to borrow a computer at the hotel.

Aranvert is a big and beautiful hotel with about ten minutes walking from Kyoto station. The staff talks english quite good. The room was at the seventh floor and gave us a wonderful view. The breakfast hade both westernfood and a japanese styled breakfast. Though it was expensive it was delicious. I think we were quite problematic guests because we wanted to extend the stay with one night but they couldnt do that on the hotel for the same price as before so I hade to go to fix it on a internetcafé around 500meters away. But there I of mistake booked wrong days and made the staff really working. When we figured that was the case I just went back to the internetcafé contacted agoda staff and solved it. But the staff on the hotel really did what they could to solve it too.

Well located with Good Amenities”

This hotel is well located because it is only 1 subway stop away from Kyoto station. If you buy a 2 day bus/subway card for 2,000 yen, then you can get just about anywhere in the city. Also, the hotel is close to a Lawson and 7-Eleven so you can get your basics close by. The hotel's best feature is the public bath, which is available for about 3 hours in the morning and then from the early evening until 1am. It's on the 13th Floor with a great view! It's a great way to relax your muscles and feet after a long day of sightseeing. The hotel itself is clean and well kept. They give you a robe, and provide toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, shower caps, and even have a small (computer monitor size) flat screen TV. Seeing as how you likely won't be doing much more here than sleeping, it's a great home base for sightseeing. Staff speaks good English.
No conditioner or body lotion provided. Not a whole lot around the area, other than some chain restaurants.

This hotel makes for a perfect home base for all of your Kyoto sightseeing. There's so much to do in Kyoto and you'll likely want to get an early start as the trips on the buses and subway all eat into your time while you are there. The Aranvert is only 1 subway stop away from Kyoto Station, which is a convenient starting point to catch a bus to see temples and shrines in the area. Otherwise, it is located on the Karasuma line, which you can easily take northbound to reach other destinations. After a long day of sightseeing, you can enjoy the public bath. Also, there is a pay for washer and dryer (although the dryer does not dry very well) and apparently there's a long happy hour with 200 yen Sapporo draft beer. This makes for a great place to kick up your tired feet and get a good night's rest.

Dear Thanh, Thank you for staying in our hotel and the great review. It is greatful to know that you seemed to enjoy your stay in our hotel. As you wrote, we recommend to take subway to come to the hotel because it is a little far from kyoto station to walk with some large luggages, though it takes 15-20mins if you walk without them. We are happy that you liked our amenities and we hope you could feel like as your home. Our all staff are looking forward to welcoming you again! Sincerely, Shiho Mizuno Reception

Great location near subway. Kyoto stay is not cheap but Aranvert is affordable. We got the 2nd higher floor on 12 and the spa at top floor/13 where we can see the Kyoto Tower.

Nice and helpful staffs Good facilities Nice big room with good view Public japanese bath on top floor
Can be expensive if you book direct.

The hotel is clean, nice and quite classy. Our double bed room is big with lots of space, and extremely clean. Hotel staffs are very friendly, helpful and attentive. It is not very close to major train stations or tourist area. However subway station is just next door and there are many bus stops around, it is easier to assess than I expected, and the quality of the hotel is definitely worth it. The japanese style public bath on the top floor was a nice surprise, I went up there every night during my 3-night stay. I stayed on the 12th floor and could see most of Kyoto from my window. The only trouble was my wife and I were so happy that we asked for 1 night extension but the price was much higher than what we got online.

I stayed there for one night. It is located near Kyoto Station. If you enjoy walking just walk to the hotel. It took about 15 min. Or you can take the subway just for 1 stop. The room was nice and the beds are comfortable and the best thing is the public bath tub on the 13th floor. You can take a bath looking at the Kyoto Tower. There were nice and resonable priced restaurants around the hotel. :)

Kyoto Aranvert: Helpful staff, Good location”

We were surprised by the elegant appearance of the Aranvert when we first walked in. Fresh daily flower arrangements great visitors to the marble lobby! The complimentary yukata (summer kimono) in the room were also a very nice touch. Complimentary toiletries were terrific, and the water temperature and pressure left nothing to be desired.
The first taxi we caught from Kyoto Station had never heard of the Aranvert, and had difficulty finding it. (All subsequent drivers had no problem, though, so he may have been a one-off.) Communication in English with some of the staff was difficult. When we were in our room at 11:30am one day, the cleaning staff called to ask if we were leaving, and if we wanted the room to be re-made up. We said we did, but the cleaning staff never came back after we left. A bit disappointing.

The best feature of the Aranvert was value for the money, through Agoda. The features of this hotel probably put it in the high 3-star/low 4-star range, and yet we paid less than $270 for 3 nights (2 people) in downtown Kyoto. Because we needed a private bathroom and quick access to other downtown spots, the Aranvert turned out to be ideal for us. The front desk staff bent over backwards to give us what we needed, from an ethernet cable to an electricity converter, to an ironing board. (The iron and ironing board, unfortunately, were broken--but they did try.)

Nice hotel, good breakfast, nice public bath”

good price, convenient to metro

this was a nice hotel very conveniently located near a metro station and not too far from kyoto station. the room was decent sized and the en suite bathroom had a decent amount of counter space for japan. the also had a nice public bath on on upper floor. the ac worked well and the room did not smell of smoke. we also really liked the great buffet breakfast. it was about $20 with the conversion, but very worth the price for what you got. i am a vegetarian and there were plenty of options. also, it was my niece's first trip to japan, so it was a good mix of eastern and western food. the internet required a cable but worked well. also, we showed up a day late due to flight problems and the held our reservation (we had prepaid for multiple days).

Great Place”

Very clean, one of the friendliest staffs, good english, tour books to borrow
area is not as close to main action

This place was very very clean and seemed like a new place. The room size was very good and the place was kept well. The staff was very friendly and probably the best of my entire trip to Japan. They were very helpful, spoke great english and seemed to really care. The hotel is in a good location, but it is a 20 minute walk from the main Kyoto station. It's not a bad walk, but still it is a little further. You can take a local subway line, but it costs additional money because it is not part of the JR system (if you get the rail pass - which i reccomend). But you can access a lot of different areas from the hotel, you just have to walk 15 - 20 minutes or catch a bus/subway etc. It is in a safe and very nice location though; just not where the action is. To be honest i don't think the location should be a drawback to you booking the hotel. You can still get to everywhere quickly with subway/bus.

Aranvert Hotel Kyoto”

Easy to get to from the Train station (only one metro stop), clean rooms, very helpful staff. Coin-op laundry.
Small rooms

I booked this hotel last minute from Agoda based on reviews and was quite pleased. We were able to find it easily from Gojo metro station (north west exit, walk left a few blocks). We only has a half a day in Kyoto and the staff helped us decide where to best spend our time and how to get there. The coin-op laundry is also a big plus (although we got lazy and didn't end up using it).

wished i could have stayed longer”

lobby well lit at night, public bath, close to subway station, good size room for japan
could use a computer in the lobby

I would definitely stay here again if I'm in Kyoto. The hotel staff was very polite, the room was clean and a good size compared to other Japanese hotel rooms. I was in a semi double non-smoking room. There is a public bath on the top floor that was wonderful! The restaurant in the hotel was nothing special but the food and service was decent. The hotel is on a major road and in walking distance from a subway station. My only compliant was that there was no computer in the lobby, although they did provide internet access in your room if you brought your own laptop.
