Pretty popular business hotel near the Kyoto station.
Getting there - come out of the Kyoto station north exit. You will have the Tall structure of Kyoto Tower facing you. Right in front of you, you will see the bus stand. Look to your left - you will see the Kyoto post building, a Lawson and cafe veloce. Turn by veloce and walk a good 10 minutes. You will then reach a junction, which is the horikawa dori jn. Take a left here - the hotel is just 5 steps from here.
The room at Apa - in typical Japanese fashion , the rooms are small and compact, maybe the attached bath was a little cramped. The table was a bit narrow and cluttered, so if you are u are unpacking a bit, make sure you check everything before u check out.
I had forgotten my file with a JR pass when I checked out.. And came back to the hotel only at night to enquire. The staff did their checks and it was given to me the next morning.
Tip on arriving at Kyoto station - if you are arriving from Tokyo on a JR pass, you wd come via the Hikari Shinkansen. The Shinkansen terminal is on the south part of he station. You have to take the pedestrian walkway on the 2nd fl and cross over to the north exit.
If you arrive after 8 pm at Kyoto station, a good idea is to eat at the Cube or at Eat Paradise on the 10th/11th fl and then get out of the station. Also Remember - the Kyoto tourist information counter closes at 1900 hrs.
