marriott international hotel

This time, I will share my experience staying at the Moxy Kyoto Nijo in March 2024. Moxy Kyoto is a unique and stylish hotel that is easily accessible from Nijo Station in Kyoto City.

About access to Moxy Kyoto Nijo Hotel

Moxy Kyoto is about a 6-minute ride from Kyoto Station on the JR Sanyo Main Line or subway to Nijo Station. From the station, it is about a 3-minute walk. It is a 15-minute taxi ride from Kyoto Station.

It is conveniently located near the bus stops “Nijo Station” and “Senbon Sanjo/Suzaku Ritsumeikan-mae” with many buses running. There are buses going to Shijo Kawaramachi and Shijo Omiya. You can also walk to Shijo Omiya Station on the Hankyu Kyoto Line.

Check-in at Moxy Kyoto Nijo Hotel

The front desk is located immediately inside the entrance. The grade of the room depends on the floor. This time, the hotel was fully booked and there were no upgrades available. Guests are served a welcome drink.

You can use a 1,200 yen food and drink voucher to cover the 2,000 yen breakfast cost, but you will need to pay the difference of 800 yen.

About welcome drink

All guests will receive a welcome drink ticket. This can be used for both alcoholic and soft drinks. Cocktails are also available.

About the Room

Basically, the rank of the room is determined by the floor. The specifications vary slightly depending on the location. In Moxy, there is only a shower. There is also a refrigerator.


I had a drink at the lobby bar. French fries were 600 yen. I got a $10 (1200 yen) coupon for the welcome gift.

About breakfast

Breakfast is served from 6:30 to 10:00

Price: 2,000 yen

Those with Platinum status or above who received a ticket for 1,200 yen for food and drink can eat breakfast for the difference of 800 yen. This time, I had breakfast because I had booked a plan that included breakfast.
