Solaria Nishitetsu Hotel Kyoto Premier

This hotel wouldn’t be luxurious, but if this is your first visit Kyoto, I would highly recommend Solaria Nishitetsu Hotel Kyoto Premier.  Access to the property is easy and great access to public transportation when you go sightseeing.  Also, there are many restaurants, cafés, and shops, etc., within walking distance.   The atmosphere is not very much Kyoto, though.  If you want to stay somewhere reminiscent of Kyoto, I would rather recommend staying at Hotel The Celestine Kyoto Gion or Saka Hotel Kyoto.   Solaria Nishitetsu Hotel Kyoto Premier would be nice for couples, solo travelers, small groups, or business persons.  The ambiance is cozy, friendly, and relaxed.  The property with the most up-to-date facilities is modern, stylish, and functional.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a spacious room with a view of the Kamo River.  Most of the rooms tend to be cramped more than you expect.  Then all of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, samue outfits, pajamas, drip coffee bags, and a Japanese tea set, etc.  Room service is not available.  There is a vending machine in-house.  There is a laundromat on B1.  There is a convenience store nearby.  Then Solaria Nishitetsu Hotel Kyoto Premier is child-friendly. Cribs and bed rails are available for borrowing if you request in advance.  The wifi reception was excellent in the property.  Also, there are large communal baths on B1.  You can relax while soaking in the bath after a long day out.  They are not hot springs, though.  They are open from 6:00-9:00, 15:00-25:00.  *If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the public bathing area.  Then Solaria Nishitetsu Hotel Kyoto Premier is a universal design.  There is room for wheelchair users.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.  Then buffet-style Japanese and western food experience for breakfast was good but it wouldn’t be special.  The buffet is quite extensive, though.  There was always more than enough food each day.  The restaurant tends to be cramped.  Then all staff tends to be friendly, attentive, and courteous but if you cannot find English speakers at the front desk, you might want to write on paper what you want to say.  Most of the staff would understand English sentences.  I hope you don’t mind.  It seems that there is a shortage of staff during the busy season.  If you want to relax here in a tranquil atmosphere, you might want to avoid staying during Lunar New Year, early April, late April to early May, 16th of Aug, the weekend in Nov, and the end of the year and new year holiday.  The hotel would be very crowded during these periods.  Overall, the price range would be reasonable.  The location is near Kyoto Shiyakusyo-Mae Station or Sanjo Station.  If you take a taxi from Kyoto Station, it takes 15min.  It costs around 1,300JPY.  Then the best season to stay here would be in spring.  You can enjoy beautiful Sakura along the Kamo River.  That’s really amazing.  On the other hand, I wouldn’t recommend staying here in the summer season.  It’s extremely hot and stuffy between early July and early Sep.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about the hotel from the below space.  *Please note that Solaria Nishitetsu Hotel Kyoto Premier is brand new in Kyoto.  The hotel opened in April 2017.  Most of the TAXI drivers wouldn’t know it.  You might want to show a map where it is located.  *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  **Check-in and out times 3:00 PM/11:00 AM   If you check-in after 24:00, you need to inform staff of it in advance.   Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on Booking.com or Agoda
