Stayed at Rihga Royal with my teenage son in 2004. Was SO good decided to return with hubby, son & daughter this year. Unfortunately, Rihga Royal fully booked so having to stay at New Miyako instead. Will wait and see as have read bad reviews re worn out accommodation etc. Can't beat Rihga Royal!

Top Local Tips for Kyoto

Kyoto observations Kyoto is surprisingly large, so planning the sights to see efficiently by area is necessary. Our hotel provided all the maps we needed. Staying near the station gives you all the transportation options to get to the sights easily and inexpensively. If you don't mind taking the bus, the correct line will deposit you immediately outside any major attraction. The bus map is very "busy", but has a nice table showing exactly which line to take as needed. When you get tired, taxis are easily hailed. When you get "templed out", being close to the station makes it easy to visit Nara, or even Himeji [amazing castle- the Skinkansen gets you there in less than an hour!] .

Great budget food The train station had fantastic choices of food, restaurants, etc. at reasonable prices. Also a Starbucks on the corner across the street from the station,.

touring individually If you are reliant on taxis, or on public transport, don't forget to take the map and even more importantly have the all places you intend to visit [and the name of the base you are srting from .... translated into Japanese. If needed be walk into any 4 or 5 star hotel and ask the reception staff to do it for you. The reason being that many places in Japan have completely different name in Japanese from the given name in English. In addition ... a lot of Japanese speak some English, but very few of them can read the latin alphabet.
