Across Nijo-castle, and near Nijojomae subway station, the ANA Crowne Plaza offers polished Kyoto hospitality at reasonable prices (for Kyoto) in a rather 1960s faded-elegance type of atmosphere.
There's almost no difference between a delux room and a standard one, other than the price. Been told it has (very slightly) better carpet and wallpaper. Poor value for money.

I would not stay again: maybe we were unlucky but the service was incredibly bad... They are hardly courteous. Rooms look as rundown as the outside.The waterfall cafe is worth a stop though.
nearest subway: nijojo-mae. no lift/escalator up to ground level. they have free shuttle pick up from kyoto station to hotel. love the room and friendly stuff!
