This hotel is located at the corner of 2 main streets in Kyoto, Shijo and Karasuma. Very convenient location. It is technically a stone's throw away from the metro/subway station. Convenience store, drug store, post office and tons of restaurants are within walking distance. I had a twin room for 2 nights. Clean and basic. Everything worked in the room.... More

I agree it is clean and in excellent location (metro few meters away, bus stop in front of doors, Nishiki market very close). But still we felt being squeezed into the room. The was no space where to put our suitcase,it stood unpacked for all 4 days stay as wardbrobe is of 4 hangers size. So we did not bother... More

Fantastic location, in fact just minutes away from subway station, numerous bus stations just at the doorstep, and 15 minutes train ride away from the Kyoto main station. Good value for money, albeit the room size, the room is very clean, with essential amenities. Guest service is great, there are coin operated washer/dryer available, and of course variety of vending... More

I must say that this hotel is very clean. Even better than some 5 star hotel. Very good location too. Room is quite small but all essential amenities are provided. The shower room water pressure is very good. The hotel have laundrette and the staff is very friendly too. Good choice of hotel.

I think this group of hotels is really underrated. This one had a fantastic location. Really central. the breakfast was pretty ordinary Japanese style. If you intend on getting out and seeing a lot of Kyoto chances are you won't be in the room for long anyway. The rooms are small but fine and we thought it was great value!

Although the hotel is said to be 2 stars, it is very comfortable and you have everything in your room: air-conditioner, fan, toiletries, fridge,etc. The room is very clean and neat, they tidy it up every day. The personnel is polite and always ready to help you. Breakfast is included. Though for us it was a bit expensive, but it... More
