Helpful and courteous staff; room was clean and pleasantly spacious (by local standard); great on-site restaurant with friendly staff (only tried their breakfast buffet with both Japanese and western-style selections); 5 minutes' walk to the Kyoto Station (JR and subway). Only issue is the lack of a TV channel in English. Will recommend this hotel to others.

great location for the Kyoto metro station and nearby shopping destinations. However, given the prices, not service oriented - no porterage services or baggage pick up till the front desk, no response for some sugar sachets request, average facilities and pricey room service. Stay if you must,

I used this hotel on a business trip to Kyoto. It was very centrally located, just a short walk from the central station in Kyoto and close to the bus terminal (where the airport bus drops off). The restaurant does good Japanese food and the breakfast selection is respectable. The hotel rooms were average size but very comfortable and well... More

This hotel is situated just about 100m from Kyoto Train Station South Gate. It is very near also to Avanti (Shopping center). The rooms we had were twins and the size was very good. The bathroom was much bigger than average Japanese type. Beds were comfortable and the room temperature control was good. Sound proofing was also excellent as it... More

On a stopover to another Japanese city. Cherry blossom season is lovely in this old historic city. Hotel will only provide room after the stipulated check-in time. Room size is great for Japanese standard, hotel is well maintained and excellent Housekeeping team. 10 minutes walk to Kyoto Central station, well connected to many parts of Kyoto city. The Japanese restaurant... More

our group used 5 rooms, all were very clean . Staff was helpful. As in all other hotels on this trip to Japan, the beds were very hard-location near train station very convenient for Kyoto. Be aware that this hotel is not able to exchange foreign money, but they will direct you to Isetan department store, where it is possible... More

There are no other reviews in English because very few foreigners seem to stay here. The lobby staff does speak enough English, however, and for the most part, it is a pretty nice hotel, though the wired, in-room, complimentary internet service was spotty. The negative review is due to one thing only: how the staff handled our bed bug complaint.... More

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighborhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
