The hotel and its amenities are great, the hotel staffs are accommodating, polite and helpful. It is relatively peaceful around the area, the hotel is located just a few blocks away from the train station.

Good location, 5-7 min walk to train Station. Self checkin/out machines. Well appointed rooms. Hard/med beds ok for western tastes. Good laundry and spa. Service was good standard. Stayed on the 16th floor with a view of the station. Lots of convenience stores outside and shopping only a few min walk. I'd stay again. Never had a problem with a... More

Stayed here for a week while in Kyoto. Good location a very short distance from the main station and bus central. Typical business hotel, but we had free breakfast daily in the cafe downstairs. Neat and clean with rooms done up daily. Small lobby can get busy in the mornings with tours checking in and out, and they can hog... More

The location is great because 2 steps from the beautiful Kyoto station. Unfortunately, the room was terribly small, hardly managed to come with baggage, and the bathroom accordingly. Also it was smoking and the smell was unbearable impregnated into the room.

Location wise, it's superb. It's 3 mins away from the Kyoto station. As you step out of Kyoto station (Kyoto Tower Hotel exit), it's towards the right side (you can see a Family Mart and Docomo), take the corner at Docomo. It shares the same entrance as Best Coffee in Seattle. Check in was smooth, they let us leave our... More

This hotel provided what we needed - clean, comfortable accommodation with a good shower and bath. The rooms are tiny, but many in Japan are, and this was good value and gave us a comfy bed and excellent coffee downstairs. Its also very close to the station so its really convenient if you want a good place to stop over... More

Stayed in this hotel for two days. The staff is helpful and nice, 10% off coffee from Seattle's Best on the ground floor, the amenities are great (except for the watery conditioner, but the toothbrushes are very nice), and having a mini ref in your room in a great plus! The rooms also come with an air purifier and humidifier.... More

Friendly and helpful staff, helped me check in and store my luggage before regular check in time. A cafe on the ground floor, 10% discount for hotel guests. Hotel and cafe staff speaks good English. Rooms are tiny, but all necessities are available. Located across Kyoto tower and yodobashi and a large convenience store on the same street.

Stayed at this hotel on 09 November 2014 for one night. It was the only hotel and room available around the Kyoto Station vicinity. The room was pathetically small with just a double bed against one side of the wall. There is an attached bathroom/toilet but no wardrobe. The room was shared by 2 adults and 1 child. We had...
