Great location for exploring Kyoto by rail and bus, VERY central. Fabulous Onsen, Breakfast ok if you wanted Japanese style, (Starbucks very close). Double room was very small. Would definitely stay here again, but book a bigger room. (Also no "non-smoking" available.). Great selection of reasonable priced restaurants on top floor of rail station.

The hotel is just minutes away from the Kyoto station, so it's a perfect home base. The breakfast provided in the morning is impressive -- traditional Japanese offerings as well as Western options. The "Ramen Hour" at night made for a perfect way to end the day. Don't miss the onsen experience in the hotel. The hot springs are relaxing... More

We stayed here for three nights in March. The location is perfect as it is less than a 5 minute walk from Kyoto station. Staff were very friendly and obliging. Rooms were small but extremely clean and comfortable. The onsen was a treat along with the pyjamas and slippers provided and the complimentary evening ramen and coffee in the morning.... More

Stayed for 4 nights, great location - easy walk to Kyoto station where there were plenty of food options and had 2 convenient stores nearby. The staff were always super friendly, with the free hot spring/sauna and noodles every night adding to our superb experience. There was also an amazing ramen restaurant 5 minutes walk away. Would stay again!

When you step out of Kyoto main station and keep a few paces to your right, you'll have the dormy inn right in front of you. Here, you'll find everything a tired traveller needs, like a clean and well organized room - albeit on the small side, a knowledgable and helpful staff and excellent service . The highlights. however, are... More

Very good stay. The location is perfect - a stone's throw from the Kyoto Station and Bus Terminus so very easy access to get around using public transport. There's a lot of shopping around the hotel too. The staff, especially Nosaka, were very helpful, patient and genuinely cared about us having a great experience in Kyoto. We were given lots... More

Only stayed here for one night when I took a day trip to Kyoto from Tokyo. The room is small (typical size for Japan) but I felt that they have put a lot of thought into the layout. Not an inch of space is wasted and everything is within reach. TV gives you a lot of useful information such as... More

The Dormy Inn chain is my favorite hotel in Japan thus far. I always look for a Dormy Inn when I visit a new place in Japan. I was ecstatic to find one near by the train station when I returned to Kyoto. As always, I love the breakfast and big 'onsen' bath in Dormy Inn. I was there during... More

When staying to a hotel, the number one priority for us is how comfortable the beds are. Coming from Australia, I prefer beds that are soft (not like hard mats - though I know there are people from different countries and cultures who prefer hard beds). The beds in this hotel were very hard and it felt uncomfortable. I previously... More

Our room was absolutely spotless. The location is fantastic, right next to the train station. Comfortable bedding and front desk staff were very helpful. Our room was made up really well everyday, you could tell they even vacuumed daily. Will definitely stay here again!
