Nice, beautiful hotel
The hotel is a bit far from local restaurants but the hotel restaurants are good though a bit pricey. Hotel is right next to a subway station though so if no disability, then no problem to go to town for meals.

The Grand Prince Hotel was a nice hotel. It wasn’t close to much except the conference center. Calm location with lots of greenery around.

Good location and service
Very nice location, service. The only negative is that in-house restaurants and bars close quite early. Deer outside of the hotel at night was very cool to see.

Good 6.0
Nice Property, but secluded. I stayed at this hotel due to attending a conference that was held right across the road. Check-in was extremely slow, although the staff are very nice. The room was large, but you can tell that the property is older. The bathroom had been updated and had a seperate shower, which was great. They are located right next to a metro station, but this property is not close to the city center. The next time I attend a conference I would stay at a hotel near Kyoto Station and take the train to the conference center.
