Modern Comfort in Nijo

what's with the glass door?
Good location,close to JR line, a big supermarket and nice restaurants. The onsen in the hotel was lovely. The room was really nice apart from the glass door of the bathroom which left us with little privacy. We ended up putting a sheet over it. You could hear everything though. Breakfast was quite expensive so we ended up buying our own in the 7/11 beside the hotel.

Good value accommodation
The hotel is in a short walking distance from Nijo train station and Nijo subway station. Nijo train station is 2 stops on a local train from Kyoto Station, or one stop for. Kyoto Station is you get a rapid train, and it costs 190 Yen per ticket between Kyoto station and Nijo. Nijo Subway is 4 stops away from Keihan Subway which is in/ near the popular Gion area, and tickets cost 210 Yen per trip for four stops. There is a handy supermarket between the Nijo station or subway and the hotel. We got many good value bento boxes, sashimi packs and Japanese sweets there. Check in was very efficient. The room was comfortable and cleanand quiet. On the seventh floor, guests have free use of the spa facilities. The women’s spa room has a pass code which is changed every day. There is a cafe/dining area on the first floor (ground floor). This hotel is good value for money. Check out was very fast. They also offer a phone with free wifi and phone calls which you can take with you on your daily trips around town. Wifi in the room was very good. It is a safe area, and not too crowded or touristy.

It was a very convenient hotel located near the JR Nijo Rail Station. It had an extremely large bath which I found very comfortable.

Lovely hotel in Kyoto
We really enjoyed my stay at Urban Kyoto Nijo Premium. The hotel was 5 mins walk from Nijo JR station so convenient to get to sightseeing places. There was also a bus stop in front of the hotel for JR bus directly to the Gold temple and a big supermarket nearby. The hotel was in excellent condition and very clean. Staff were lovely and good wifi. The room was just enough for 2 people with suitcases but this is common in Japan. We enjoyed the breakfast as they had a good range of Japanese and Western food (plus local Kyoto specialty) and some of the dishes get changed each day. It was also convenient to have washing machines and dryers available. We would definitely stay here again.

A great choice
Almost next door to Nijo metro station and meters away from the Castle moat itself, 7 minutes by train from Kyoto Station, the location could not be any more central than this. No need for public transport on your first sightseeing area, with the Castle, Imperial Palaces and Gion all in the row at walking distance from each other. Also meters away you have a large supermarket, then a smaller one near the train station, and an entertainment mall right at the other side of the train station. The property itself was nice, very comfortable although small rooms of course, like almost anywhere in Japan unless paying the premium for space. The staff was very friendly, helpful and professional, and seemed to enjoy talking to us. The breakfast was really nice with a good choice, mixed of western and Japanese products. The decoration and care of the entire property was immaculate, and so was the incredible new electronic toilets, that was fun to use! I will for sure recommend to anyone, all my friends and for sure will be my prime choice whenever I return to Kyoto.
