Located just a couple hundred feat from the nearest bus stop, this hotel was very easy to reach. I was a little daunted by the negative reviews but my experience was wonderful. This was the cheapest room I stayed in during my entire trip to Japan.

I booked this hotel on agoda.com, I've been using them for every time I come to Japan. Its my first time actually staying in Kyoto. I'm currently writing this review as I'm in the hotel, about to leave for Tokyo. I booked a twin room for my boyfriend and I because of the price. As we entered the hotel, people... More

By the 5th night, I woke in the middle of the night from intense itching, that's when i found bedbugs creeping on/ in my sheets and bed (see photos & video). It was everywhere - sheets, bed... More

20 mins from Kiyomizu/Gion area by walk. Hotel facilities are little bit old, but the cost performance is good.

I will say, I was happy with this hotel for the price I paid. It's not a luxury hotel by any means, but it's neat and practical and served my purpose. Location is ok, everything is well connected by public transport. Free wifi and can be accessed in each room, not just the lobby which I've found elsewhere. Rooms and... More

Stayed here due to its proximity to office I was working from. The property seems to be popular with Asian group travellers. Single room was clean and typical small size and layout for a business hotel but room was a bit dark and dated in decor. Unit bathroom. There are convenience stores nearby as well as a small supermarket. OK... More

The staff were ok although spoke very little english. Breakfast could be purchased although I didn't check it out. It was quiet and clean.... More

I have been in this hotel for 6 nights. Hotel room was quite small but this seems to be same for every hotel around this price in japan so I will not complain about it since room was really clean and in good condition. Hotel staff is always smiling and trying to help you. Breakfast was also good ( 980... More

It is indeed value for money. Great location, about 200m to Kiyomizu Gojo Keihan station; we reach this station from Nara , without having to go to Kyoto staion. There is a bus stop across the road with buses to Kyoto station;on the same side of the road is Kawaramachi Gojo bus stop, buses from Kyoto station pass by here;... More

I have to say the stay at this hotel was not very good. This is mostly because: -Dirty room: It was full of dust under the bed when we tried to look for something there. -Not very convenient location: you will need to take a bus to go most of the places such as famous temples or Kyoto station.
