This hotel is in a great location, opposite Kyoto Station. Easy when you get off the shinkansen and just want to drop you bags and go off to explore! We had 2 rooms booked and 1 was ready when we arrived about 12pm. We left our bags and went off to explore all the wonderful things to see in Kyoto.... More

The only good thing about this hotel is the location which is right opposite the train station and bus terminus. Unfortunately we stayed for 5 nights during the third week of April 2014. The mattress on the bed was worn out and was like sleeping on a lumpy pile of broken springs that sagged in the middle. My wife and... More

We stayed for 2 nights in Deluxe triple room which was quite large, but was a bit dusty. Location is excellent and very convenient for transport, food and entertainment. Complimentary admission to the Kyoto Tower observatory is a nice gesture on hotel's part. The air conditioning is centrally controlled and the room was heated up too much, as the April... More

i booked a non-smoking room and turned out the hotel gave me a smoking room. They showed me that their record showed smoking. Reluctantly they switched the room and took a while to do so - wasted quite a bit of time. Make sure you call ahead to re-confirm your room preference. This is a really old hotel and hasn't... More

We booked this hotel based on availability and price as there wasn't much choice around Sakura season. I was a little worried what we were going to get based on some of the reviews, so when we arrived and saw our room I was very relieved! Small,yes, but no worse than other japanese hotels. The breakfast was very good, helpful... More

They offer smokers room and also smokers salong in common areas. Despite somewhat hard beds and some traffic-noice at night, top rating 6 i given for... More

I stayed here for a couple nights during my trip to Kyoto. The hotel is in a pretty good spot, since Kyoto station is directly across the street, and there is a fair amount of shopping nearby as well. When you check in, you get a free voucher to go up to Kyoto Tower, which isn't that great, but still... More

Older hotel so close to the station. Not a lot happening around the station area, but very convenient if you have luggage, and limited time in Kyoto. Room was exceptionally clean, and although compact, was exceptional value at less than $AU50 a night. There was always at least 1 staff member at reception who spoke English, and even those who...
