Solaria Nishitetsu Hotel Kyoto Premier


If this is your first visit Kyoto, the hotel would be great.  An access to the property would be very easy and there are many restaurants within walking distance. It would be categorized as a luxury business hotel.  On the other hand, if you want to experience an authentic ryokan adventure, this is not. Perhaps, if this is not your first visit Kyoto, this is not.  The atmosphere around there is not very much Kyoto.  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 ambience is cozy, friendly, and relaxed.  The property with the most up-to-date facilities is cool, stylish and functional.  If you are going to stay there, I would highly recommend booking a spacious room with a view of Kamo River as much as possible.  Most of 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, a green tea set, etc.  Room service is not available.  There is a vending machine in-house.  There is a convenience store nearby.  Then cribs are available if you request in advance.  Wifi reception was good in our room.  Also there are large public baths on B1.  You will be able to chill out while soaking in the bath after long day out.  They are not hot springs, though.  They are open from 6:00-9:00, 15:00-25:00.  *Please note that if you have tattoos and want to use the public baths, use a private bath attached in your room instead.  Then the hotel has a universal design room and wheelchairs are available to borrow.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform staff of it in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift as much as possible.  Then buffet-style Japanese and western food experience for breakfast was good but it wouldn’t be special.  Also 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 staff would understand English sentences.  I hope you wouldn’t mind it.  It seems that there is a shortage of staff during busy season.  If you want to relax at the property in a tranquil atmosphere, you might want to avoid staying during Lunar New Year, late April to early May, weekends in Nov, and the end of year and new year holiday.  The hotel would be very crowded during these periods.  Then the location is near Kyoto Shiyakusyo-Mae Station or Sanjo Station.  It takes around 5min walk.  If you take a taxi from Kyoto Station, it takes 15min.  It costs around 1,300JPY.  Anyway the best season to stay there would be in spring.  If you visit in early April, you would be able to enjoy beautiful Sakura along Kamo River.  That’s really amazing.  On the other hand, I wouldn’t recommend staying there in the summer season unless you join summer festivals in the city.  It’s extremely hot and stuffy between early July and early Sep.  It would be very hard to walk outside under blazing sun.  Nevertheless, if you have a chance to visit Kyoto in the summer season only, I would rather recommend staying at Hoshino Resorts L’Hotel de Hiei.  The location would be much cooler than Kyoto city.  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.  It opened in April, 2017.  Most of 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 3:00PM/11:00AM   If you check in after 24:00, you need to inform staff of it in advance.  Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on or Agoda
