Our party of four stayed at this hotel. It's location is excellent, being close to Kyoto station and bus depot. The reception staff were frienly and very helpful. Once we reached our rooms, two doubles, we wondered how we could cope with the tiny size of the room. Once we had removed a grimy chair to the corridor we managed... More

I stayed with my family in Oct 12 on a 2 day trip to Kyoto, the best part of this hotel is that it is 3 min from the Kyoto Station, very very convenient location (for Bus and Train transport in Kyoto) Though the rooms are small they are clean and well done. Would recommend for its convenience!

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to Kyoto station as a base for exploration of the sights in Kyoto. The service at checkin was very frinedly, keeping our luggage at early checkin so we could explore the city. However, the rooms were very worn out, small and not particularly clean. The hotel may be very convenient but not... More

I recently had the chance to stay at this hotel. I didn't have much of an option to be honest, as most of the hotels in Kyoto were full, but I felt lucky to have found a place to stay near the station. Perhaps that is the most important thing about this hotel: it's only one block away from the... More

As I arrived in Kyoto during the peak cherry blossom season it was very difficult to get a hotel room. Finally I managed to get a room at the APA Hotel which is within walking distance from the the Kyoto Main Train Station BUT the room is really "teeny weeny". No space for luggage or even to walk .....just to... More

a business hotel with small rooms, private bathroom, clean and windows that can be opened. good location for tourists who are out all day visiting beautiful Kyoto and just need a decent and clean place to sleep. The hotel is at 3 min walk from the railway station and the bus station going to all the tourist sites. Friendly reception... More

I have tried to submit this reveiw before but trip advisor won't publish it?? Every other reveiw I have done about Japan has been very positive but this hotel has black mold in the bathrooms and the AC doesn't function. I even submitted a picture of the back mold but as said - trip advisor did not post it. The... More

If you are in Kyoto for business not for holiday this hotel has a good location. 5 minutes walk to Kyoto station, rooms are very small but clean. Really good price thoug. No English in the rooms so it is better to ask about how to use remote control before you get into bed.

This is a basic well kept hotel near Kyoto station. We were there for business and location was fine. Rooms are small, but well kept. Windows could be opened , which was nice and surprisingly quiet. Not much life nearby, but restaurants in station.

It is 5min walk from the main train station/bus station. The room is small.. but bigger than the APA hotel next to honmachi station at Osaka! It has everything you need (e.g. TV/hairdryer/kettle etc) and it is clean. The bed is quite comfy and the price is very reasonable.Think we have a good deal - only 6100 yen a night.
