Stayed there in March with my friend for a Sakura holiday in Kyoto. It is my second time there and I think we made a great choice staying in this hotel! First of all, things in Japan is expensive enough so a good budget hotel is essential. We stayed in a semi-double room with 2 medium sized suitcase. It was tight and we had to skip over our suitcases to get into the room. I guess it is average size for Japanese hotel and it was ok for 2 tiny Asian gals. The room was spotless and had all the essential things including hair drier, mini fridge etc. The best thing abt the hotel is the public bath (onsen) on the top floor!!!! We went there everynight after the long day and relaxed there. We did not use the tiny ensuite bathroom for shower at all. They have many pools with different temperature and a outdoor bath. Also stream room and sauna. It was free of charge for guests and we fully enjoyed it!!! ( for those not familiar with jap culture, it is actually for bathing so u need to take a shower there first before entering the onsen and absolutely no swimsuit allowed) Another good thing about this hotel was the location. It was 5 min walk from Kyoto station and the main bus stop so getting around was not a problem. We had a blast at the underground shopping mall just beneath Kyoto station and the ramen street there was also great!!!
All in all, I think it is a very good budget hotel in Kyoto for holiday or business, but you need to pack light.
