the hotel is very close to the main station and there are dozens of shops , cafes and restaurants nearby , also close to the metro station and close to several attractions. rooms are small but okay for Japanese standards. good for a short stay of a few days , if you want to relax in Kyoto try something else

Average hotel, where rooms are in need of an update. No real lobby space, but breakfast was more than OK. The hotel is located just across from Kyoto station, but quite far from the shopping and restaurang district of downtown Kyoto.

Next to the Kyoto train station, the hotel offers a good starting point to visit the city. Free wifi, fridge, hairdryer, coffee-tee facility in the room. The price is ok for a three star hotel. The location is also close to the metro, and next to the Kyoto Tower

Best location for exploring the city .the hotel is opposite the station so quick check in drop the luggage ( staff is very helpfull and can hold to your luggage before check in and after check out )...

For transport connections this is perfect, directly opposite the station, you can be on the local platforms in under 5 minutes and the shinkansen ones in under 10. Foodwise though you are limited to either eating in the station or the shopping mall behind the hotel (or snacks in the room). Most of the station restaurants in the top floor... More

This hotel has an excellent location, straight across the road from the train station. The rooms were clean and comfortable, albeit small (as with every room in Japan). The staff had excellent English and the free tickets to go up the tower were a great bonus. Highly recommend.

After staying in quite remote locations in our Osaka hotels it was great to be in a central location in Kyoto. There was a range of shops and restaurants in close proximity and we enjoyed just purchasing some fresh sushi and local beer from a supermarket underground, behind the hotel and putting our feet up to enjoy watching BBC news....

The hotel is under the famous Kyoto Tower. We got free tickets to visit the Kyoto Tower. Our room was very big with a King bed and 2 beds for the children. Very convenient situated next to Kyoto station. There is a Starbucks next to the hotel (good for breakfast) and also a shopping mall behind the corner with a... More

upon arriving at kyoto from tokyo... we had no problem looking for this hotel for it's just in front of the station. the hotel is a typical business hotel with lots of bags from customers lined up in the lobby. the hotel is old and the same goes with their beds and furnitures. but there is nothing to be surprised...
