The hotel is around 6 mins walk to Kyoto station, very convenient to travel around with subway. However, the room is very small and hardly have space to walk around when you have big luggages. Toilet is small as well, able to fit one average person only. If you are a big size person, I do not recommend to stay... More

The room was clean and comfortable but very small , although perhaps not by Japanese Hotel standards. As some of the other reviews have indicated, location is the biggest attraction as it is 5 minutes from Kyoto Station, not far from the bus station and lots of shopping including the mammoth BIC camera It is also a 15 minute walk...

Due to getting sick when i was on vacation in Japan, I opted to stay in Kyoto longer and hence had to extend my stay at the inn I had booked or a new accommodation. Opted for the latter. Checked reviews online and hotels that apparently still had availability before heading over here to check in. They were a tad... More

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.

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
