We have a spacious double room during our stay. It's much more bigger than he other chained budget hotel Toyoku Inn. Breakfast is good and I really appreciated there are choices of pillows for in house guests. Friendly reception staff but beware the hotel will close for cleaning in the afternoon. Clean environment just like the grade A hotels in... More

The hotels is very well located. It is close to Kyoto station and to the subway. It is also next to a cry beautiful and authentic neighborhood. I had stayed only one night there due to problems checking in where I have originally booked. The staff are nice and pleasant. It is fairly clean. But as mentioned in another review... More

Our first impressions of the Super Hotel Karasumagojo were all to do with the size of the room. Compactness initially is overwhelming, but once you arrange your travel stuff around the two quite large beds and work out how to operate in a small space it works well. The person in charge is truly delightful and does everything to make... More

Don't even THINK of staying here. The rooms are unbelievably depressing -- incredibly small and stuffy and dingy. There are paper signs attached to everything.One non-transparent window that doesn't open. My sister, who is very tactful, called her room a dump. The bed literally feels like cement with a sheet of cardboard on top. Seriously, I would cancel my travel... More

This is a cheap, practical business hotel so as long as you don't expect too much, it is fine. The rooms and bathrooms are very small but it is clean, and it is well located next to a subway station, or about 20 minutes walk from the main Kyoto station. The buffet breakfast is basic but good enough. As it... More

Located not far from Kyoto Station. Good access to transportation to Kyoto sites. very practical hotel. No lobby but nice rooms. Buffet breakfast. Generally, recommended if you need a base for touring the city.

After a week of conference at a normal huge hotel, we moved to the centre if the city to a more affordable hotel. Super Hotel is interesting, you can choose types of pillows, there are stacks of pajamas to use and they reward you for environmental friendly acts like bringing our iwn toothbrush. Rooms are small as expected, bathroom is... More

We stayed at three different Super Hotels during our time in Japan, and all were clean, comfortable, and the staff were willing to help you in any way they could. In all hotels there was at least one staff member who spoke good English, but even if they spoke limited English, they always did their best to help. Included breakfast... More

We booked Super Hotel Kyoto in Gojo through their website and it was a breeze. They did not even ask for any deposit. Check-in was also a breeze. We expected the room to be small, as it is in almost all hotels in Japan. But we were surprised that it wasn't that small as we still had space for our... More

We are a family of 5 and we had 2 other adults travelling with us. We had a total of 3 rooms. Check in is on the second floor. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We arrived here from Kansai airport using the Yasaka Taxi. I expected to only be greeted by their automated electronic check in system, but... More
