Fodor's Review

One of the city's best hotels, the Kyoto Brighton has an elegant design sense and thorough dedication to good hospitality. Glass elevators circling a large central atrium whisk you up to large rooms with separate sleeping and lounging areas. Noteworthy features include an ultramodern water-purification system and Club Otsiku, where you can enjoy cultural experiences like flower arranging or a tea ceremony. The helpful concierge is on hand to help you plan your sightseeing, and the excellent Hotaru restaurant is well worth a visit; the resident chef won a contest on the popular cooking show Iron Chef.
