This hotel is in a great location, only 600m from the subway station in Shijo, downtown Kyoto. The service is good, wifi is free and the room is spacious, especially for Japan. The rooms are clean, cosy, and warm. The only thing I would say is do not eat at the attached restaurant downstairs. Not sure if this is a... More

If you want to stay at a traditional Japanese hotel (ryokan), don't stay here. If you want a room that is spacious, comfy, clean, quite, convenient & western, stay here!

The rooms were clean and cosy. There was good wifi connectivity and the hotel is a short distance away from the Kyoto metro station (Shijo). A very comfortable stay for a decent price even over the Christmas holiday

Stayed in the hotel for two nights as part of my trip to Japan. I got a really good deal from Booking and MyStays definitely exceeded my expectations, specially regarding the comfort.

The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the shijo stn. The double rooms are very small with the bed pushed against the wall. But otherwise the room is clean and has all required toiletries etc. You need to pick some up from the lobby as they do not provide all in the room ( to prevent wastage).

Clean, quiet hotel. Caters to tour groups. Room was comfortable. Internet worked. Walking distance to bus and subway stops. Restaurant with breakfast and dinner buffet - skip these unless you are desperate. Overall a good value for visiting Kyoto.
