I've stayed here 3 times in the past 5 years and each stay has been enjoyable. It's a nice business hotel, so don't expect anything extravagant, but it's clean, comfortable, enough space and like most hotels in Japan, very safe. I didn't try any food here so I can't comment on it. I also didn't have much interaction with staff... More

Located on Shijo 15 minutes walk or 2-3 bus stops from all the shops on Shijo. Various restaurants in vicinity. Handy to buses, 5 minute walk to subway. Ideal for being close to downtown (shopping and restaurants), night life (Pontocho, Gion). Room clean and well maintained, frww Lavanza coffee in lobby, free wifi.

This hotel is close to the subway (unfortunately for us not the JR trains) but is close to the centre of the city, so within walking distance of a lot of major attractions. Our room was spacious and the hotel itself was quite modern - it was also great to be able to do our own laundry again!

Our family of three went to Kyoto last week for a short vacation for 5 days. My mom researched online and found the my stay with really good reviews. I went ahead and booked two rooms since I figured most Japanese hotels are tiny and it was quite a bargain ($65 U.S./night/room) We had some sort of premium two bed... More

We stayed three nights at this hotel and managed to get a good deal of $45 (AUD) each night, which is extremely good value as the rooms (including the bathroom) are larger than a typical Japanese budget hotel room (Unless you're staying in a 5 star luxury hotel which we did in other cities).
