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

Thank you for staying with our hotel and expressing your concern to us. First, I`m sorry that we were not able to guide all guests fairly. We decided assigning rooms by guest`s reservation contents. Therefore, depending on a visitor, I may have you enter before 2:00. However, we should devise it to have you check in at all visitors fairly.... 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.

Kyoto Tower Hotel Annex is a short walk (~4 min) from the Kyoto Station. Once you exit Kyoto Station, turn left and cross the traffic light (you will see Lawsons opposite).

This hotel smelled pretty terrible in all aspects. The lobby was a smoke filled tiny room. One table had a no-smoking sign, and yet, 1 meter away there was an indoor ashtray with people smoking. Constantly. Every single time we entered/exited the hotel. Additionally, our floor was supposedly a non-smoking floor. There was a non-smoking sign on every door. Yet,... More

Located but 5min walk from the main Kyoto JR line, it was really convenient for the budget traveller such as me and even threw in in a free admission ticket to the Kyoto Tower!
