The room size is small but a japan size. The location, views, and services are perfect.It is really close to the main Kyoto Station and also very close to Kyoto Tower. It is a really great hotel compare to the price. There are also some discount coupon from the hotel.

Hotel is conveniently located near the JR. Great for me as I was only in Kyoto to sleep. The room was small though even for one person. Not sure why I got 2 beds instead of one bigger bed as I specified I was a solo traveller. There was a sofa bed in the room which was unnecessary and made... More

It's very near Kyoto train station; 5-min walk. Also located beside Kyoto Tower (but you can't see it from your room), and also near to Yodobashi Camera, for your Japanese multimedia/appliance shopping. However, the rooms are very small. Not a value-for-money accomodation. Only one person can walk inside the room at a time. Barely to nil space to put your... More

We visited during cherry blossom season, the room rates are very high. The location close to Kyoto station is really convenient. We did expect the rooms to be small, struggled to find place to even open our luggage. And the rooms are quite dated.

The hotel is in a great location but I'm not sure if it adds up to a European 1*Hotel. Terrible. Extremely Small, dirty and stinky rooms, you feel like In a budget Hotel in one of the post communist countries. Would never go back and would not reccomend. Not for that price. It's worth max 35-40€ a night.

Quite pricey for twin room, no breakfast, shower head spoilt, no complimentary parking for scooter. Plus point: Location. Good! Near to Kyoto station and Kyoto Tower. Received Kyoto tower discount coupons and 10% discount coupons for shopping at the tower souvenir shops at level 1. Staff was quite friendly. Able to speak little English.
