This is a lovely hotel located directly across from the main train station, so it is perfect for those arriving/departing by train, as I did. The rooms are small but comfortable, with the usual amenities, including free WiFi, and are quiet and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful, and extremely polite. There are several restaurants right in the lobby,... More

It is an old hotel that has been renovated. The room is clean and the quality of bed is good enough. The best part of this hotel is the location that is in the front of the central gate of Kyoto Train Station and bus terminal. The access is very easy even if you come for the first time to... More

Great location but nothing special. Rooms are of an ok size for Japan, quiet and very clean. I don’t understand why they don’t have an iron though. Breakfast was not bad but it was the worst of any Japanese hotel I have ever stayed in. The hotel is located right across the street from Kyoto Station which is beautiful and... More

This is one hotel where you will locate easily. So convenient, right in front of the main Kyoto train station. No better location than this. Restaurants, shops are all around, within the train station and beside the hotel too. However, the hotel has aged a little and the room is a bit of a little squeeze. But I think the... More

Stayed here for two weeks. Great hotel. Nice and clean. Comfortable basic rooms. Toiletries provided, tea making facilities provided, robe and slippers provided. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very well located close to train and bus station. Can't fault it. Recommend for central location

This is the second time that I've stayed at this hotel and I'll definitely do so again if I'm lucky enough to go back to Kyoto. The location is perfect, right next to the station so when you get to Kyoto, maybe a little tired, you just have to walk across the road. It's also conveniently located for the underground,... More

I Believe this hotel has the best location in Kyoto, with easy access to Railways, Metro and City Buses, the hotel have very normal service with nothing special, with a little bit old not very clean rooms. What made it special is the location and for the same location i can say it's the most reasonable one in term of... More

Typical Japanese business hotel. Nothing to recommend it, other than being close to Kyoto station. I'd flown in that morning on a longhaul flight from Europe, and was looking forward to a sound nights sleep. Unfortunately, the walls and doors have the insulation quality of a traditional rice paper. 3 times I was awoken by crying children, somewhere down the... More

Took a direct train from Kansai Airport and the hotel is situated directly opposite the Kyoto train station. Hotel is with close proximity to all the amenities and attractions. The bus station is just opposite the hotel, as such accessibility to public transport is a breeze. There is also a Lawson Store nearby to the hotel for your convenience. Hotel... More
