The hotel is conveniently located across from Kyoto Station, and in the event of bad weather, it can be reached via the underground “Porta” network of shops, emerging above ground just a few steps from the front door. Around the corner is Yodobashi Camera and in the area are scores of small restaurants and bars as well as other shopping.... More

The location of this hotel is good in sense it is just steps away from a huge network of underground shops and restaurants, leading to subway and JR Kyoto stations. Buses 206 and 100 can bring you to Kiuomizu Temple. A convenient store is across from the intersection, next to the post office. The hotel itself offers breakfast buffet (for... More

As per our itinerary, leaving Osaka at night to reach Kyoto. The hotel is close to JR station, crossing the street. It is kinda old and we did not pay attention for the room description. Room is too small (the smallest we get in Japan), air con location is wrong so you would feel warm.

Efficient check in, very warm and welcoming staff, rooms are perfectly sized. the first room I had was a single one, with view on the Kyoto Tower. But a noise problem with a water pipe happened...

This hotel is a bit dated, but you can't go wrong with the location. Direct access to JR Kyoto station (which is great for the Shinkansen) and the city bus station is literally across the road from the hotel. Room size is adequate, and the beds comfy enough. This is not a super luxury hotel, but the reception staff are... More

In front of the station, it is very convenient when you arrive and if you want to take the bus. The place is clean, the rooms are not incredible but OK. The breakfast has a lot of choice, for a correct quality.

Just opposite the railway station with superb conection to anywhere in the city (most buses start an end hier). Spacy room with double beds, very clean, with a possibility to open the window (othervice to warm). A lot of opportunities for breakfest and diner in the close vicinity, shoul you prefer not to eat in the hotel itself. Staff speak... More

The hotel might looks old but the room is neat and clean. It is located just opposite Kyoto JR station and bus station with lots of restaurants and malls around. Recommend to purchase a bus only day pass for 500 yen (unlimited travel) as Kyoto bus station has all buses that moves to every part in the city. It is... More

We have been in Japan for over a week. This is by far the worst place we have stayed so far. I wish we had checked the reviews before booking, however, no wi-fi at the time. We came to Kyoto a day earlier and the place we had reservations at was fully booked unfortunately. So we stayed here for one... More
