It was last day for us to live in Japan & decided to have sightseeing in Kyoto. So this was nearest hotel to station & for sightseeing as well. breakfast is good as you have some option, but not Veg available. Neat clean & tidy But space constraint is the quality of APA hotel.

I knew coming into this hotel that the rooms were going to be Japanese sized; however, I did not realize that I may have had more space in a capsule hotel. The room was dirty, and the bathroom was modular in a particularly awful shade of "old yellow." Furthermore, the walls couldn't be thicker than cardboard as I could hear... More

A 4/5 minute walk from train station, very handy and pretty much in the middle of town or just off enough for a good sleep. As the rest of Japan and South Korea the rooms are tiny very few exceptions (and plenty of $) though very clean and comfortable. Good thing here is location, shopping, trains and buses great access... More

Hardly enough room to open my suitcase. Pillow was very flat, but bed was comfortable. Bathroom was pretty small but sufficient. Price (approx. 11,000yen per night for two person) was good considering that breakfast was included. Food was very average though. Quite close to the Kyoto station, which helps as we go visiting other landmarks. Amenities are sufficient.

The room was the size of a postage stamp, the tv appeared bigger than the bed (which was meant to be a double) and would probably have been comfier too. I would have slept on the floor had there been space as the bed was like sleeping on concrete. The room wasn't particularly clean, dirt around light switches etc. and... More

The location of the hotel is fabulous, right next to the train station. That is the only positive thing about this hotel! We had to take a smoking room, as all was fully booked. The room was absolutely aweful & filthy. The curtains & walls were stained, the airconditioner was majorly dusty & the heater on the floor had never... More

The location is good. Only about 6mins walk to JR Kyoto station. Booked a semi-double and its small (need to close the luggage to walk around) but it is clean and the location more than make up for it since we did not spend much time in the hotel. The bedding is clean & firm, thus I had good sleep... More

The room is not small, it is tiny! Smallest the room I've ever stayed in my life but I could live with that. The bed is very uncomfortable, the pillow is not comfortable, the bathroom is way too small to move (I am a small person too). Smell the cigarette in the hallway, not very pleasant. All these will be... More

My husband and I had a very average three night stay here. We were struggling to find somewhere to stay in Kyoto that didn't cost the earth and this was all that was available. This hotel is in a great location near Kyoto train station. We got the bullet train into Kyoto and I would recommend going to the information... More

Lets start with the only positives- convenient location and very nice staff. This hotel was awful. We stayed here for 3 nights- regrettably. The room was tiny and stunk of cigarettes- in fact the whole hotel smells of cigarettes. We did not get a good nights sleep for so many reasons- the room was way too hot, air con didn't... More
