I picked this hotel because of price and location to the JR trains. It was about a ten minute walk. It was a small room but we had selected the semi double so expectations across japan are that you do not get a big room unless you pay for it. The bed was a bit hard and the pillow small... More

Stayed for 2 nights. The rooms are very small but very clean and good enough for two people. Bath is small too but they have a good public bath. Breakfast was excellent too. Way better than a cheap american continental breakfast. Staff is very friendly. I left some luggage there and they even shipped it back to me for free.

Carpet is clean and new. - Breakfast included which is quite simple but good spread. - Aeon shopping complex (with cinema) is just a... More

The hotel room was very small and it was very difficult to open three luggages. The hotel was not very close to the station and needed to walk around 15 mins to go to kyoyo station. The breakfast time started from 6:30 am to 9:30am which was short and early. And the check out time was 10am , if you... More

great location. the bus stop is just in front of the hotel and goes to most of the tourist areas, i.e. a lot of the temples, etc, just be sure that you check the destinations on the bus before boarding, it is going on 2 different part of kyoto ( i.e. one to the north and the other to the... More

Do think twice before staying in this hotel. We booked 3 rooms and arrived around 2.30pm and we requested if we could check in just for 1 room but the staff says no room available. So we waited till 3pm. But it was quite surprise for me that we are required to check out as early as 10am. What make... More

After being bumped out of our original choice of hotel for Kyoto, my wife and I were a little worried about Kyoto Plaza as it's replacement. Kyoto Plaza is a 5 minute walk from Kyoto station. There is a shopping centre near by which is convenient. Staff were very helpful, friendly and professional at all times in which we spoke... More

Convenient location. You can find buses, trains and taxis just opposite the hotel, all in one location. A very convenient place for exploring Kyoto. It is central to tourist attraction like shrines temples and universal studio. You can easily find eating outlets, starbucks, pharmacy and shopping malls nearby. Room is on the small size and bathroom is well stocked with... More
