“neat hotel in excellent location with affordable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

the hotel is just next to metro station which makes it a great basecamp for travel or business. rooms are large for japan standards and of rather western style in general; especially for the bargain price you find at tripadvisor, hotels.com etc. they are simple great.
rooms and baths are 100% clean and well maintained - but that is rather japan standard :-), with coffe and green tea + boiler.
wifi of very good speed and stability is free, staff has a bit below average english (but above japanese average), however, is very helpful and kind.
we did not use restaurant in the hotel lobby as there is plenty of eating opportunities close to the hotel with western and japanese food in the whole price spectre. however, we used the washmachine (in 5th floor, 200 yens) and vending machines (in each floor)
highly recommended!

Stayed here 2 nights, friendly staff, English was average.
Rooms were above average being a new hotel built in 2012.
Hotel has good vending machines and washing machines.
Wifi worded well in this hotel.
100m from subway station.
Be aware Kyoto has 3 subway providers so if your traveling by JR trains you have to factor in changing trains.
We ate at the hotel 1 night, nothing special as we normally like smaller places with character. English menus available, English with wait staff not so good.
Hotel has self checkout machines, first we had seen on our trip.
Would recommend this hotel. We paid about $90AUD a night so well priced.

Absolutely loved everything about this hotel. Location excellent, staff friendly, rooms immaculate, wifi fantastic, downstairs restaurant delicious. There is nothing not to love about Kyoto, and there is nothing not to love about this hotel. Stayed in 2 x twin rooms- brilliant!

Room was a nice size, especially for Japan. The staff was friendly and helpful and check-in was quick. Bed and pillows were comfy, and A/C worked very well. Subway and train entrance was one to two blocks from hotel, respectively. A few blocks to shopping district of Shijo-Dori. I liked this hotel and would stay there again.

A recently built (2012) modern business hotel. Comfortable, clean, efficient. About a 20 minute walk to Tokyo station (but there is also a subway stop right next to it). Staff friendly & efficient (despite the low english level, which to me is never really a problem). It has an automatic check-out machine, which I thought was a great idea. Room comfortable, great amenities package (I enjoyed the lady's cosmetics, bath salts, cremes, etc very much!). Breakfast at the restaurant was good, too. Overall a pleasant experience.

Although there was nothing 'bad' about this hotel, for the price charged, I thought it did not deliver the appropriate value. Having said that, the room was very small and the air conditioning was not very effective.

The most unfriendly hotel in Japan. Just check in and be greeted by unhelpful staff. We booked three rooms at this hotel for three days. Two of the three rooms have heavy cigarette smoke. Hoping to get some help to clear the air a little bit we asked the check in lady if we could get a cleaner to assist. The check in lady was exceptionally unhelpful to us and refused stating that no cleaners were working in the hotel. This is despite seeing five cleaners meandering around our floor. When we asked if it was in any way possible to get a different room the lady refused to check despite one of her colleagues repeatedly pointing at her screen to her in front of us.

Dear Sir.and Madame,

Thank you very much for your stay.We're so sorry to give you unpleasant and unhelpful services:
We gave you the wrong service with the wrong hospitality at the wrong time.
We're afraid that you've booked smoking room and NO availability on Non-smoking room.We strongly recommend you book non-smoking in advance.

We believe to give you vaccume cleaner is NOT what we should do;We must do whatever it takes to gie you satisfaction.We have to make it.

We hope you will come again.We'll give you the service with heartful,helpful and friendly hospitality.
