The staff was tremendously accommodating to us, although there was no one English-speaking. Even when there was a mistake from my booking through Expedia and two rooms were booked, they cancelled the other room without much struggle or delay. I was so grateful! My trip would've been ruined if I had to pay for both. The breakfast was delicious and... More

This hotel does not particularly cater very well for English speaking guests. The rooms were also quite basic when compared with other hotels we stayed in Japan and the breakfast was very poor. Also a fair way from the JR station and not a lot happening around the hotel. Overall not able to recommend this hotel.

Location: Average. It requires you to travel 1 subway stop from the main station, and it's not within walking distance of any other major attraction. So location gets only average. Ambience: Average. Feeling and ambience too are average: very clean area, clean building. New lobby but nothing special. Rooms: Average. They are clean (ours had a stained carpet), beds are... More

We stayed just for a couple of nights at this place. It is quite far from the Kyoto station and located near Gojo subway station. The problem is to locate the subway line that goes to Gojo from Kyoto as it involves quite a walk. Secondly, there are hardly any restaurants and eateries around this hotel. The rooms are better...

I chose to stay in this hotel due to its close proximty to the subway and suited to our budget. It was a less than 5 minutes walk to the Gojo Station. Gojo station was also one stop away from Kyoto Main station. The size of the room was just nice for the two of us but wifi was only... More

I really liked this hotel. Great location, very clean. Helpful staff. When I checked in, they gave me an English information page which was extremely helpful. There is also a bath on the top floor of the hotel - which is amazing. If you haven't yet experienced the wonder and joy of a public bath in Japan... Well then. You... More

Very friendly staff with nice and comfortable rooms for the price. The hotel is within walking distance of many attractions such as kyoto station & a-cho entertainment arcade. It's also. Short walk to a few small restaurants and convenience stores which is great for when you're hungry. All-in-all it's a neat and tidy place to stay; would highly recommend.

Traveling with only iPhones/iPads, the wired internet in the room wasn't particularly useful. If you can bring along a wireless router, I would definitely recommend it! We actually ended up walking back down toward the station to the Yodobashi Camera electronics store and spending $30 on a tiny USB-powered "hotel router" so that we could have WiFi in our room....

My bf and I had a fantastic stay here in April 2013. (Note: TripAdvisory won't let me select the actual date we stayed here. We indeed stayed in April 2013, not Sept 2013.) Price: The cost for 5 nights was $583 USD, and did not include breakfast. We thought the accommodations suited the price very well, and was a great... More

I stayed over one night in this hotel. It is around a 15 minute walk from Kyoto station and although it does have a handful of gardens/temples close by I found my stay in my next hotel right next to Kyoto station a great deal more convenient for travelling around Kyoto along with having a selection of restaurants.
