I stayed here for three nights and it was ok. The price was good, the room ok and the location was ok. A 20 min walk to tge train station, or a 5 minute taxi ride. 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. I... More

I went here slightly apprehensively, having read some of the reviews here. I was relieved to find a perfectly acceptable hotel. I think with cheap hotels like this, a lot depends on what you pay and what your expectations are. I didn't exactly expect a Four Seasons hotel, but I do expect cleanliness and safety and a certain degree of... More

We chose this hotel because it's quite affordable and looked ok. We were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms are great, western style with everything you expect. The staff speaks English and is incredibly friendly. There's free internet. There is a bus stop right in front of the door from which you can get to all the sites in Kyoto. Highly... More

Though the rate I get is higher then 25 pounds per night, it is significantly lower than the one of Granvia at the time of my stay. The hotel is 1 to 4 bus stop away from the Kyoto station (depends on the bus one takes). Gion is within walking distance (10 to 15 minutes). Location is not too good... More

Generally you get what you pay for, and at less than 6,000 yen (about 25 pounds) per night, including a buffet breakfast, I wasn`t expecting much from the Rich Hotel. There are some negatives about this place - the rooms are very worn, the furniture is old, and mine smelled of stale cigarette smoke, but the bed linen was very... More
