Great staff gave me a discount on a walk in and the room was great! The hotel itself is only about 5 years old and very nice/clean! The rooms are very quite especially since it was the middle of the Gion festival one of the loudest times of the year in Kyoto.

This hotel is in a superb location. The rooms are tasteful and quite big for Japanese Standard. Even Bathroom is big enough and the price is reasonable. Breakfast is tasty and Internet works well. Staff is not very good at English and they can't do anything that deviates from their standard procedures like paying in cash upon check out. [You... More

I stayed here with my partner for 4 nights in early November 2014. The hotel is well located. We arrived in Kyoto from Tokyo by Shinkansen and then took the subway (Karasuma Line) to Shijo. Shijo subway station is about a 5-10 minute walk away (exit 2 is the most convenient). The hotel sells bus tickets at reception, but we... More

We stayed here two nights in early December. Location is on one of the main shopping streets of Kyoto. Good train, metro and bus connections nearby. You can see the sights of Kyoto pretty easy from this hotel. Not large, but nice bedrooms and bathrooms. Beds nice but pillows a little hard. Free coffee. Pleasant staff. We switched to a... More

The location is good to access the most popular area in Shijo of Kyoto. There is a bus stop in front of the hotel so the transportation is very convenient. Also, the complimentary coffee and green tea is very nice treatment for the tourists.

We booked this hotel because of its location, within short walking distance to shopping and restaurant areas. It is also a good 7 minutes walk from both Shijo-Omija and Shijo station, for easy departure to Arashiyama and Kyoto train station respectively. The reception is on the 2nd floor where they serve complimentary coffee and macha. The only regret was the... More

We stayed one night in September but I think the room was fine for the price paid. The room is small- even for Japanese standards. We travelled to Kyoto from Osaka and backpacked it so it wasn't like we had large luggages. We had to stuff our backpacks under the desk because there wasn't room to walk around. The room... More

The reception at the hotel was a little confusing. The room was clean but sometimes the bathroom smelled bad for which we should always turn the exausting on. The localion was good and centralized among the points of interest, so the cost/benefit is medium.

I've stayed in quite a few Hotels in Kyoto so I would like to think I'm a little bit more experience rather than these passing doe eyed tourists. Stayed here for 4 nights. Absolutely dreadful hotel. Sure it has a nice entrance, foyer and the reception staff are friendly and helpful. However the room was sub-sub standard. It was meant... More
