I stayed at the Kyoto Tower Hotel Annex for one night and was very impressed. Admittedly, on first impressions I found the room to be very small, but actually it was very cosy and homely. I had booked a single room but found I had been given a twin room which was a nice surprise. The rooms also have a... More

The location next to Kyoto station is great for getting around to the sites. Also, the station itself has a lot of options for eating. The room was small, and not nice by any means, but our experience was good. The bathroom looked like what they have on cruise ships, and the bedding wasn't great. We had a nice window... More

Good thing about the hotel is it is near Kyoto station and Yodobashi is right across street. (well almost). Other then that it was way below expectations. The hotel could do with some room refurbishment. Although the bathroom was clean, there was a faint urine smell. Luckily I stayed there for only one night.

This is my first night in the hotel and it is more like a motel rather than a hotel. As I lie here writing this review I can hear people walking and talking in the hallway. The bathroom is very small with hardly any place to put your personal toiletries. And the bathroom floor is not level with the room... More

This hotel is very close to the large train station - convenient; also, there us a post office nearby. The hotel was clean. We had a view of parking lot, but it was quiet for a downtown location. The breakfast was limited, especially for those not eating Japanese food. There are a lot of places to eat at the large... More

It's old, not updated and also not very clean. Stains in the bathtub, a permanent "pissy" smell in the smallest bathroom/toilet I have ever seen, stains also on the walls of the restaurant. Yes you get what pay for, you can expect something of an European average pension room in a non-urban area. Not a 3 star hotel though right... More

This is a good, clean hotel with an average level of amenity suitable for tourists to Kyoto. This is a 3 - 3.5 star hotel. The rooms are adequate size but the bathroom we had was small, but this is consistent with many hotels in Japan and for a few days easy to adapt to. The hotel is conveniently located... More

This is an okay hotel. It was relatively inexpensive and served its purpose for our trip. The staff was friendly and the hotel is really close to the main Kyoto Station. It was a bit cramped for 3 people, but we were not there except for sleeping, so it was fine. The air conditioning was pretty much worthless and the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and found the location to be excellent for the sights we wanted to see in Kyoto. We had children with us and they were able to accommodate 3 in a room. It was tight however we only had small baggage. The staff were friendly and most spoke English. Very happy and would stay again.
