Stayed here 5 nights on a tour. Rooms are small but have everything you need. Bathroom is small and shower ceiling is low, which might be a problem for anyone 6 feet or taller. Breakfast is on the tenth floor, and the views are very nice. Both western and Japanese items for breakfast, but the Japanese put sugar in the... More

I needed three nights in Kyoto and only had a little time to make the booking. Various sites listed many properties that were sold out. I found Hotel Sunroute for JPY48,000 for 3 nights. I would class it a as good 3-star establishment. The staff is excellent. The room is quite small, typical for Japanese hotels, the bathroom is also... More

excellent location, right next to the memorial, friendly and competent service, for Euro 70 quiet and super large room. Wifi included, I didn't eat there, so cannot say anything about that. definitely a great place to stay.

The hotel is on a relatively quiet street close to (10 mins walk/2 mins bus ride) shopping and restaurants. There is a bus stop right in front which makes getting around the city very convenient. The room is a little dated but clean.

Stayed here for 2 nights. It's not a bad hotel. Their bathrooms were small and not well ventilated but at least the rooms did not smell like smoke. Other hotels we've been at did smell like smoke even though we requested non-smoking rooms. The reception desk was friendly and had no issues checking in or out. They did speak enough... More

I stayed at the hotel sunroute for 3 nights in January 2015. After some initial problems finding it (due to my ignorance of the japan public transport system), I arrived early (around 11am), but pleasingly, was told I was able to get into my room early (a god send after a long haul flight). The sunroute is in a great... More

Been traveling through Japan for 2 weeks now and I absolutely fell in love with this hotel. It is clean, the location is great and it has everything within reach. We were able to do our laundry. The rooms are quite big, even though we had the small 2person room with a small bed. Note: we are tall Europeans! Even... More

We stayed at the Sunroute for three nights before starting a tour of Shikoku and another two nights on our return. At first glance the location didn't greatly impress but, actually, it isn't far from quite a lot of places you will want to visit. A short walk from Gion and the biggest department stores, a longer walk to the... More

Stayed for four nights from 4th November 2014, An excellent location on the edge of the Gion district. About a 1000 yen taxi ride from the main railway station. All the staff we encountered were very helpful. The best breakfast choice (western and Japanese) that we encountered during our 2+ week tour through Honshu and Kyushu. After exhausting tourist visits... More
