We stayed here for six nights.  What impressed us were not only the nice ambience, lovely breakfast buffet and accessibility, the staff there were very friendly and welcoming.  We asked a male staff regarding a bakery but he was worried that we couldn't find it.  Then the next day, he asked a Mandarin-speaking colleague to speak to us - what...

I picked this hotel as it was close to Kyoto station and convenient to catch the bus and subway for sight seeing. Staff were friendly but most had limited English. We were lucky to meet a lady staff member at the concierge desk who speak fluent English on our first day. She helped us with advise on public transport and... More

The location is central right next to the train station almost close where you get off from Shinkansen . Step away from all the buses you need to get to most places to see in Kyoto . for the value of what you pay for your money is excellent. Beautiful hotel. The photo on the internet doesn't do justice. Clean... More

My husband and I stayed here last month during a holiday to Japan. We booked this hotel as it was a really good price and in a really good location. The rooms in the hotel are a bit outdated and worn looking but are clean. As other reviewers have said, the room had a rice cooker but no kettle, safe... More

Right next to Kyoto station this hotel is great for getting around town and doing day trips to Nara & Osaka. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. Would recommend this as a great place to stay.

We stayed for 2 nights. As we arrived before our check-in time, they kindly put our bags into the storage area so we could go out and explore. When we returned, we were greeted so warmly by all the staff and our bag was in our room. Our room was clean and tidy and we felt the decor was fine.... More

This hotel is in a great location, right next to the station and bus depot. The bus is by far the easiest way to get around Kyoto so this is a real plus. We did hear the trains a little from the room, but this didn't detract from a good night's sleep. Staff were very friendly, and while the rooms... More

Dear vaderag; We really appreciate that you stayed with us and you took time for writing this review. Just as you indicated, the rooms on the standard floors are a little dated, but we make our best effort to maintain the cleanness and tidiness every day. The 7th and 8th floors are redecorated as the "Comfort floor", and you might... More

We stayed 1 night in April 2014. The staff was exceptional. They spoke English well and took the time to help us plan the day, giving us maps and advice on how to get around the city. The room décor was dated but it was a very comfortable and quiet room. The amenities were good (shampoo, conditioner, razors, etc) with... More

Dear Tracbert; Thank you very much for your fabulous feedback! We are happy to hear that you are talking so highly about our service. As you pointed out, Kyoto city bus is very cheap and its network spreads all over Kyoto. But it's sometimes too complicated for foreign tourists to locate themselves. It takes a long time to reach your... More

Right beside the Kyoto station with all its restaurants and the good train connections this is one of my favorite hotels in Japan. The rooms might need some renovation and there is no indication that you have free WiFi in the rooms (I discovered it by my own). For sightseeing this hotel is excelIlent and the hotel had one of...
