This is a great hotel conveniently located (basically) across the street from the Kyoto train station. I was a solo traveler so the room was fine for me, but might be "cozy" for two. Breakfast was not included with my rate, but the bowl of ramen at the end of a long day of sightseeing was a nice treat, as... More

We stayed here for 2 nights after a stay in a ryokan in Gion, we had a massive 2 days of sightseeing planned as well as an early get away on a shinkensan after checking out so proximity to the station was important, and I can't say how many times we thanked our lucky stars about how easy it was...

For the average whistle-stop visitor to Kyoto I would say that you can't beat this place: it is fairly newly fitted out, very close to the station (note you need the exit the station on the north side if you come in on the bullet train), and has a couple of nice touches with the on-site communal bath and free...

We chose this hotel because of the excellent reviews and location to the train station. We booked (2) rooms for our family of 2 adults and 2 children and stayed for a week. This hotel is very basic and you can tell where they cut the corners. You have to notify them when you want housekeeping to come - by... More

Eki-mae means "in front of" (mae) the station (eki) Yes, its just few steps away from the exit of underground shopping complex Porta, and 5 mins walk from the sprawling Kyoto station complex. Great location to start our exploration of Kyoto with all means of transportation at your doorstep. JR, Shinkasen, Underground, major bus routes There are 2 convenience stores... More

We stayed at Dormy Inn for 3 nights and were very impressed with the hotel's offerings. The rooms are reasonably sized (by Japan standards), the bathroom a good size and all in-room amenities provided - even pants and a top for wearing around the hotel. What made this hotel a stand-out was the Onsen on the 9th floor - it... More

The Dormy Inn Premium Kyoto Ekimae is a beauty in Kyoto. Close to the Central Rail Station, the hotel is good for a quick in and out trip of Kyoto. The staff is very well trained and keep the place absolutely spick and span. The best feature of this hotel is the 9th floor hot springs, hot bath and sauna.... More

We stayed here a few nights. Location is great, right next to the train station and in the city centre, you can walk to lots of attractions. Spa was great, rooftop jacuzzis. Room was lovely too, great design, a bit small, but that's just normal in Japan. Staff was nice and polite. We didn't eat in the hotel, rather tried... More

Unbelievable value for the price. You not only get a clean room with ample space in a location that is extremely close to Kyoto station but the hotel comes with free ramen (after 9pm) which was delicious and also an excellent hot springs bath on the 9th floor. It's hard to imagine staying anywhere else in Kyoto at this price... More

If you look for a hotel with a large room for a good price, this is not the hotel you should choose. But otherwise, it is a great hotel. Especially, if you like to experience some Japanese culture. The hotel offers free noodle soup for dinner, free entry to the onsen on the top deck and provides every day a... More
