Booked through a third party online booking site. No issues with checking in even if we arrived very late. They have walking maps available and staff has decent English skills. We took the airport limo bus from KIX and as stated in some of the reviews here, the station is literally right in front of the hotel so we had... More

2 of us stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in a "single room for 2 people" ...apparently something was happening in Japan, it was a very busy time and I was not able to get any other hotel close to the station except this one and only this room was available. The room was very small so I do... More

I stayed in a single room for one night after arriving in Kyoto. Having done some sightseeing in the morning using an English map provided at Kyoto station, I thought I would collect my bags and check in. Beware - the hotel was listed on the map which I thought was very handy as my phone had gone flat and... More

Overall a rather decent hotel and appears to be popular with Japanese tourists. Location wise it is very convenient as it is located across from Kyoto Station with access to JR lines and the local metro (via an underpass) and right next door to a mall (Avanti). For those using the Google Maps app on their phones, beware that the... More

Not much to complain about but not much to rave about either. The hotel is easy to locate but trying to check-in/check-out/ask the reception questions takes quite a while as there seems to always be a long queue. Room is quiet and clean.

Located across the street from the main train and bus station along with many shops and restaurant, it is easy to find. Not too many attractions, but the subway is a few minutes walk from the hotel. Room was a triple with very limited space. Wifi is on and off. Skip the restaurants in the hotel, very overpriced, and get... More

Some reviewers say that this hotel room is not clean, in my case, the room was clean and the size of the room was average compared to other Kyoto hotels of the same grade.This hotel is not business hotel, but regarding entertainment, it is not satisfactory.Instead, next to the hotel, there is a big shopping mall, Avanti, which has many...

This hotel was in a convenient location but lacked in the usual exceptional customer service that is expected of the Japanese hospitality industry. They had several greeters but only two people working at the reception desk so the check-in/check out line was long. They will charge you $20/hour for checking in early. You have to leave your key at the... More

We found this hotel to be in a good location and only minutes from the station.The room was not small by Japanese standards as I think the people who have commented on this have never stayed in a APA hotel. The breakfast was adequate and had plenty of choice for our needs.The hotel what we saw of it was clean... More
