My friends and I found a great comfort in the simple but well appointed rooms after our train trip from Tokyo. Next to the train station, we found it convenient as we took day trips to other sites. The staff was helpful and our rooms were clean. I would definitely recommend it .

This hotel is just 2 mins to the central exit of Kyoto Station - which means if you dislike to move around and would like to visit Kyoto for a few days with public transportation (Bus particularly) this is a great choice. The room is very ordinary and nothing to expect except it is clean.

The high point of this hotel is the excellent location - just steps away from Kyoto station and conveniently linked via the underground and buses to most places in Kyoto you would like to visit. We have opted for a "room only" rate, and get a slightly (but not very) cramped, fairly dated twin-bedded room on the 5th floor. The... More

Convenient location, just next to the station. Shopping mall, restaurants, and drug stores near by. Friendly and helpful staffs. Room a bit small but tidy and clean. Nothing to complain with such affordable price.

Excellent accommodations. I stayed in a western style room. The staff was very friendly and helpful staff. They had a wonderful breakfast buffet with a combination of western and traditional Japanese food. The beef was amazing. The hotel location was very close to Kyoto station which made sight seeing more convenient.

The location is very nice - just next to the train station! Shopping mall just next to the hotel. And you can also easily go to other attractions by bus or train. It is an traditional Japanese-Western hotel. The staff is nice, and the room is really clean and comfortable. Price is affordable. Can't ask for more with this similar... More

Pro's: - Location, Location, Location! As a previous review stated, exit the train station on the Kyoto Tower side, immediately turn right, and the hotel is a two minute walk away. Mostly covered except the area where you have to cross a street. - Very friendly and helpful staff - most speak enough English to assist you, or they will... More

It's a terrible place with unfriendly barmen, bouncer staying all the time under your back and staring at you, very small drinks and ridiculously high prices.
