I was feeling skeptical with this hotel due to mixed review however we did not make a wrong choice. This hotel is clean and neat. It looks new as well.
It is near to a train station where you can hop on to Arashimaya easily. There is also a shin-omiya station but this line does not bring you to Kyoto station. Its not a problem, just hop on to their city bus to reach kyoto station. The nearest subway connecting to Kyoto station is Shijo Station which is about 20mins walk. I strongly recommend you to get 500Yen a day bus pass to visit all the temples. It is very easy and convenient.
The hotel room comes with tatami mat and its spacious in japanese standard. You can choose to sleep on futon or roll down the sofas into sofa beds. The room comes with boiling flask, a microwave (very useful!). There is also a communal hot bath at level 1 for you to soak in.
Tv channels limit to japanese channels so its quite boring at time. Aircon was a bit erratic, it blew air every now and then but its not a problem for us.
The hotel provides free bento breakfast. Its a small bento to keep you full but not very full. We opted for the japanese bento and had the same bento for the next 3 days. Nearby, you can try Lotteria fastfood, a new japanese burger chain which serves quite good burgers like MOS burger.
