Wife and I stayed 6 nights in this hotel from April 9th. We booked a premier semi double room in January. We were given a room on the 9th floor which was designated as a premier floor (9 to 11 floors). The room was very small and we had to squeeze in the luggage and to organise the placement of... More

The Bad - found out the real meaning of "Semi Double room", the room is very small for 2 average-size person to stay in, no place to place your luggage except at end of the bed. The bed in Semi-Double room are only two-third the wide of a Queen-size bed. it is impossible to sleep comfortably in one. We wanted... More

The APA is well located ... relatively plain but reasonable value. We had six enjoyable. Days in the area. We learned "the HARD way" that reserving a western bed is important. Our first night was on a bed so hard that good sleep was impossible and was a terrible start to the holiday. The next day they very kindly moved... More

You need to walk at least 10 mins from Kyoto Terminal Station. Small lobby with mechanical operations. Staff are neither rude nor polite; like asking a human robot questions. Room is extremely small with only enough walkway if you walk sideway to your bed. Very pricey at ¥19,400 per night. My friends stayed at another hotel nearer to station &... More

I stayed here over New Year's for 4 nights. I ended up booking the smallest double room possible, as I made reservations at the last minute and that room was about the only one left in Kyoto! The hotel is very close to the main train station, as in you must walk, and slightly hard to find. The staff spoke... More

I stayed in the Hotel for 9 nights with my son and was using Kyoto as my base station to look around from Dec 20-29, 2013. The location of the hotel is great as it is very near the JR Kyoto train station and central bus station to move around Kyoto. Just a few minutes brisk walking from the hotel... More

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It is located near Kyoto station as well as the bus terminal. This hotel's location is terrific for travelling to various attractions in Kyoto. Other than its close proximity to the JR station and the bus terminal, it is also close to the JR Isetan Kyoto shopping centre and there is Porta... More

We were here for one night due to a last minute change to our plans so we weren't spoilt for choice. If you like rock hard beds, this is the right place for you (we spent more comfortable nights in Ryokens with no beds!). That said however, the service at the hotel was great, the staff were very attentive and... More

During our recent visit to Japan we stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. It was the most expensive hotel we stayed at and the worse. The hotel is located a 10 minute walk from the Kyoto Tower exit from the railway station and about 30 minutes walk from the Airport bus terminal. To get to the hotel from the... More
