First stop this trip to Japan was Kyoto where we were booked at Solaria Nishitetsu Hotel Kyoto Premier, Japan, 〒604-8001 Kyoto, Nakagyo Ward, 三条上る上大阪町５０９番地. Our room type was a Garden Twin Room.
Using our Green JR Rail Pass from Narita airport we took the Narita Express to Shingagawa Station where we transferred to Hikari shinkansen down to Kyoto Station. the hotel is within walking distance but after leaving our Zurich Hotel before 6:00AM then flying to Helsinki then on to Tokyo then train to Kyoto we caught a taxi even though due to traffic it may have taken longer than walking!
Everything about our stay at Solaria Nishitetsu Hotel Kyoto Premier was excellent the room although smallish was a good size for Japan, housekeeping was impeccable, and the breakfast servings and pleasant restaurant staff meat we made the effort to eat there each morning of our stay even though the cost was not included in our original booking. Plenty of places to eat and see around Kyoto within walking distance of this hotel and the proximity of Kyoto station makes day trips to the likes of Hiroshima possible.
A great place to stay in Kyoto.
