This hotel is all about location, directly across from Kyoto station. You can't miss it (the tower is on top). Which was great for us getting in late at night. The room was cozy but clean. The breakfast was just OK and not included. Our only problem really was that the room was very warm and noisy as we were... More

The hotel was very clean, the staff very friendly and they spoke english. The hotel has a great view and very well located close to the Kyoto station. The centre is walking distance and there is a nice French restaurant for brekfast around the corner. The rooms are not big, but big enough for a pleasant stay.

The location of this hotel is fantastic - just opposite the kyoto main train station. You can get good food and shopping nearby. The room is a bit small but that is a norm in japan. It is basic and very clean. The bed is quite hard and the bathroom is a small cubicle - again it is quite normal... More

The hotel is located just across the Kyoto Station and bus terminus, which makes it ideal for back-to- back travel around Kyoto in public transport. It is also surrounded by numerous eateries and shopping plazas. However, if you are not into intense travel, you can look for more quieter locations. The approach to the Kyoto Tower within the hotel premises.... More
