Out of 1110 hotels in Kyoto we rounded up 20 with highest reviews, from 1⭐ to 5⭐ - both budget and luxury. Starting with Akane-an Machiya Residence Inn let's go down the list.

Kyoto is a major destination in Japan with over 1100 popular hotels - that's quite a lot to choose from. We've rounded up top 20 hotels with highest guest ratings from budget to luxury category.

How do we compare hotels? Mostly based on guest ratings. If guest ratings are similar for hotels of the same tier, then we rank a cheaper hotel slightly higher (same quality for lower price is better).

It's pointless to compare hotels in different categories, so we grouped the best hotels by price range, star ratings and proximity to key tourists attractions, such as Fushimi Inari-taisha and Kinkaku-ji. Use the table of contents to select the hotel category that you're interested in. Let's go down the list!
