Friendly staff and very clean hotel. We checked-in very late but the staff was very kind and had everything ready so everything was very smooth. The family room they provided was very spacious and comfortable. Looking forward to staying here again when visit again.

Everything about the hotel exceeds my expectation. It's an elegant hotel with established services, including a shuttle to and from Kyoto Station. Within a very short walking distance to Kyoto Station, Kyoto Tower, and several shopping options, with limitless dining options. Although I found the limited surface (and electrical outlets) in my room a bit challenging, the RIGHA Royal Hotel is a fantastic choice in Kyoto.

Great experience. The staff is really friendly. If you have tattoo thought you have to keep them covered while swimming in the pool.
