Hotel Ibis Styles Kyoto Station is situated directly across from the southern Hachijoguchi Exit of Kyoto Station. This location is very convenient for the Kintetsu railway lines, the shinkansen bullet train lines, and also for shuttle bus services to Kansai International Airport and Osaka Itami Airport. UNESCO World Heritage Site Toji Temple is a nearby attraction and there are plenty of shops and restaurants in the local area’s many shopping malls. This is a relatively new hotel, with very hard working staff who have already gained an excellent reputation for their friendly and helpful service.
Hotel Ibis Styles is a business hotel with 215 guest rooms. Single rooms, double rooms, twins, queens and superior rooms are all available. As it is a no-frills style business hotel, the rooms do tend to be small, but they are reasonably priced, comfortable and clean.
All rooms come with free Wi-Fi, LCD TVs with pay per view channels, air conditioning, a telephone, a work desk, a full length mirror, tea and coffee making facilities, and nightwear. In the bathroom you can find a shower and bath tub, a hair dryer and a full set of complimentary toiletries. Two free bottles of drinking water will be delivered to your room every day of your stay.
All guests staying at Hotel Ibis Styles are entitled to a free breakfast in the hotel restaurant. Breakfast is served between 6:30 and 10:00 with last orders at 9:45.
