Room is nice, well furnished, spacious for 3 persons, comforable and has good view. Probably best locatioon to travel around Kyoto, Osaka, Uji and Nara. 24-hour convenient store, supermarket and restaurant just downstair. Good price and very good service! Free coffee, green tea and ices at lobby. Have stayed for 7 nights, highly recommended!

The hotel is very close to the Kyoto Station (taxi cost is about 900 JPY). There are many bus lines within 5 minutes walking distance from the hotel, so it very convenient as the public bus is the best mean of transport in Kyoto (and very cheap – one day pass costs only 500 JPY comparing to one journey price...

The only one problem I've had was for the internet acces. Only by ethernet, no wifi. If you don't have a box to change the ethernet into wifi and no laptot or tab with an ethernet port, you will have to rent a laptot 1000 yens. And the laptop I rented was...not good at all, too much used before and... More

Coming from Tokyo after stay 1 week there, I am quite surprise at the size of the room! Price wise, in my personal view, is very cheap. Maybe because it's Kyoto, because it's looks (old) traditional-wise and not as trendy as tokyo. The room is very spacious, and on certain floor, there is a microwave oven which u can use... More

We booked this room via airasia website and were not expecting much for the $90 we paid between 3 of us but were pleasantly surprised. The reception was friendly and communicated as best as they could (we speak very little Japanese). The beds were comfortable, and exactly what we needed after sleeping on futons. The room and hotel were very... More

I expected a very small basic room considering the price we paid, instead the room size was just right and the essential amenities present. Clean rooms and friendly staff. I loved the location because it helped us save money. To get to the kyoto tourist spots and to the train station, we just took the bus since the bus stop... More

We got a great last minute deal on this hotel on priceline. It was a fantastic hotel - very clean and conveniently located in the center of the city. It was very easy to catch the bus from here to anywhere in the city for 500 yen per day, and it is also within walking distance of lots of shopping,... More

The hotel was very good value for money as it was located quite strategically. There is a bus stop right outside on either side of the pavement which buses to most key areas serve. There is free ice, coffee and green tea latte on the lobby floor which was a nice suprise considering the low cost of the hotel. There... More
