Near the Kyoto Station. That's a plus. Most people will get confuse with the other APA Kyoto ekimae hotel, which is just behind this one. Has a small ladies onsen. I liked the one outside where you will get to feel the cool breeze. The room is pretty small and I believe most Japanese hotels are like this. The hotel... More

I stayed one night at this hotel. I probably would have only wanted to stay a most three days there. It's not a good hotel if you're going to spending say like a week or longer there. Very close to the station, however I did have a hard time finding my way back once when wandering around near the station.... More

We asked for non smoking rooms, and ended up with two smoking rooms instead. This was not good. The rooms were very small and the staff did not speak english. The bathroom was clean and had free soap and shampoo, but that was it.

The location of this hotel is great, 2min to the main JR station. The room was clean and comfortable albeit a bit small. Wouldn't recommend the buffet breakfast, was a bit expensive at 1500 yen a head for what was on offer. Plenty of coffee shops and restaurants nearby that could do a more affordable western or japanese breakfast.

At the top floor, there is a big public bath. You can enjoy several featured bathes.

We booked the semi double room and it was so small we hardly had a place to put ourselves. It’s basically a double bed and very little else. Luckily they had space and moved us to the 9th floor (9 to 11 are premier floors) to a double room, (not without charging an extra $20/night) seems that "semi" has a... More

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
