Kyoto in March - where to stay and more

Jump to last reply

My husband, 9 yo son, and I (and possibly our 20-something daughter) are planning to visit Kyoto at the end of March, to spend time with our 20 yo son who's studying there this semester. We've done a fair amount of foreign travel, but we've never been East of Russia (or West of California, if you want to look at it that way).
We're probably going to let our older son help shape our itinerary, and he'll definitely be translating for us, but I would very much welcome specific advice on hotels, and any general advice for first-time visitors to Japan.

Hotel-wise, I don't feel that I have a good understanding of what kinds of things will and won't be available. Our first choice, usually, is separate bedrooms - communicating if we don't have one of the older children with us, adjacent if we do, or a full suite with a door separating the grownup sleeping area from the living & sitting area with a foldout. Will western-style hotels have those kinds of arrangements? Or are we going about this all wrong - is there a different, characteristically Japanese set-up that might suit us?

What would be your recommendation for a hotel if price were absolutely no object? How about if we wanted to save more for our food budget?

Thanks much!
