Stayed for five nights on no business trip. Room was very small, as Japanese hotels often are but clean and comfortable. Very central location in city and directly opposite the main rail station. Easy access to shopping and restaurant areas. Have a cocktail in the tower bar, rather overpriced but spectacular views.

Personally speaking, I'm quite a fans of Kyoto Tower area, including the revived Kyoto Station complex. This hotel would be a good choice for anyone who wish to feel the nostalgic ambiance of Kyoto Tower, especially at night. In addition, the hotel provide a special discount for traveler to go to the observation deck of the old, yet loved tower.... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our way back up to Tokyo. Travelling as a family of 3 (2 adults 1 child). The main strength of the hotel is it's location right next to Kyoto station. A short walk from the station, through the bus station gets you to the hotel which is easily located by the obvious reference... More

The hotel is right opposite Kyoto Railway Station and Bus Station. All the tourist attractions can be easily accessed by catching a train or bus. The guests get a discount to go to the Top of Tower. The view of Kyoto city is good from the top. The front staff is helpful and arranged Ta-Q-Bin services to forward our luggage... More

The hotel was located conveniently right across the road from the train and bus station. However, the room we stayed in was tiny. There was hardly space to fit our luggage. The hotel was busy with different groups of people coming and going, holding meetings in the convention rooms on different floors. There was a bit of noise from the... More

Only thing good with this hotel is location and ok beds, but the air condition does not work and windows cannot be opened... our room got extremely hot and it was just spring time! Most amenities advertised when booking don't belong to the hotel and are only available just if you pay extra fees for them (this is not honest)...... More

Nothing special other than the convenient location close to the main train station. Beds had a definite tilt to one side from wear and tear. Room smelled of smoke although non smoking. No space in bathroom to put toiletries bag. Room not cleaned by 3pm on one day, so they gave us a free breakfast. This in itself was nothing... More

We booked this on the last run as we left our initial booking the Annex (terrible place). The hotel is very well located just across the train station, had a beautiful, clean, very spacey and sunny twin room with all that you need.

A hot April day without advertised air conditioning. The staff says the rooms are centrally controlled and the system was set still at heating. The windows would not open. It was stifling. There are positive aspects to this hotel, but even the nicest shoes, if they have a pebble in them, their comfort is unquestionably compromised.
