Located in Kyoto's Central Kyoto neighbourhood, Hotel PONTO is in the city centre and near a metro station. Kawaramachi and Nishiki Market are worth checking out if shopping is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's popular attractions can visit Kyoto Aquarium and Toei Kyoto Studio Park. Kyoto Municipal Zoo and Funaoka Thermal Bath are also worth visiting.
You'll be asked to pay the following charges at the property:
We have included all charges provided to us by the property. However, charges can vary, for example, based on length of stay or the room you book.
We stayed in Kyoto for 4 nights, initially in the standard double before our bathroom light broke on the second night - they immediately upgraded us to the deluxe double for the rest. The rooms are identical except the deluxe is slightly bigger and better bathroom. The staff were excellent and can't be faulted. The location is good, in the heart of the "party" or club area - plus close to Gion and public transport.
Pros: Location great, close to Gion, transport and club/bar area. Staff are excellent. Rooms are generous, tidy and good facilities. Midday checkout handy!
Cons: Noise could be an issue due to street bars, especially in standard double. Deluxe double no issues, except WIFI was weak.
Location: 5 min walk to bus/train - then every shrine/tourist spot in Kyoto. If you like food and clubs, you're in the heart of it!
