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

We stayed in this hotel on our honeymoon mainly because it fit our price bracket during a long stay. The room we stayed in was extremely small (basically just a bed and a dresser) but that's to be expected at the price we paid in Japan. It's very well located near the main railway station in Kyoto. There is a... More

Had a horrible experience at this hotel, and thankfully only had to spend minimal time at it. Yes the location is great, but there are many many many other hotels surrounding it. Very uncomfortable sleeping and I do understand that some hotels may shut their a/c off in the winter but as someone who comes from a much colder climate... More

First off I loved Japan, the people and Kyoto. This hotel has one terrible issue - BLACK MOLD!! I have photos. The tiny (but tall) tub enclosure is just set in with no calck or molding so the walls get wet and are totally covered with black mold. The hotel location is great, the rooms are tiny - the AC...

Got a chance to spend 2 nights at this hotel. The best thing for this hotel is the location, which is a walking distance (5 min) from Kyoto station. There are 2 convenient stores closed by. However, the hotel is not that big. Also, the staffs have limited English skills. I haven't tried their breakfast, but it seems that the... More

The room is very very tiny, we didn't have a nice sleep at all as the room was too tiny. I would not recommend to other travelers!

This hotel's lobby was incredibly... tiny! I couldn't bring along with my stuffs to the reception counter during arrival due to the lobby was fully occupied with luggage! With the presence of rude mainland Chinese, I got the feeling of going inside a refugee camp! With the help of partner, I hardly finished my check-in procedures and got my room.... More
