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...

The hotel was great, it was clean and the wifi was not spotty at all unlike other hotels, the location was also convenient. The only thing is that the room was super super tiny, but expected as visiting Japan.

We wanted a hotel near the station but did not want to pay the prices of those hotels. This one was perfect for what we wanted, and was in our budget. The double bed was small, and one side was against the wall which made it a challenge to get out of during the night! Our bed was not made... More

Kyoto was a blast but all the tour trips, entrance fees to temples and sites, gifts and food started to add up. My host found this place online whilst we were touring the city and booked it for a lot less than usual. The price was concerning as neither of us had ever been to the hotel before, we didn't...

The reasons and needs in which I booked this hotel where perfect for me. The price was very affordable and helped me keep a budget without sacrificing much. Yes my room was tiny but I was traveling by myself and didn't need much space. This hotel is right across Kyoto station on the Kyoto tower side and this was most... More

Fantastic value for money. We could only take one of their (even) smaller rooms, however has everything you would need. Very effectively designed ( Japanese efficiency!) and 2 minutes from Kyoto main station. If you are looking for a short stay and not spending long in the room, book it!

Friendly staff, super tiny but clean rooms very convenient for the train station, good if you only plan on using it as a base as the lobby is tiny too. Breakfast is fine, if not a little unusual in some parts (unless you happen to be Japanese, I assume,).

Hotel is just five minutes from Kyoto station. Rooms are small so you don't want to hang around the hotel too much but everything is efficient, it is not expensive and is an excellent base to explore Kyoto. Laundry is available along with a vending machine and an in room fridge. Shower is very good and staff were very pleasant... More
