Having a free onsen in a Japanese 3-star business hotel is definitely the specialty of this hotel. The price is fairly cheap for what this hotel offers.
The breakfast is great. It is a buffet style with a wide variety of selections from the western sausage and bacon to the Japanese miso soup and tamagoyaki. There are also vending machines on every floor
Each room has free WiFi available and of course LAN (cable included). The staff can speak a bit of English as well.
The best part of this hotel is of course the onsen on the 11F which opens from 6am to 1am. It is free, but you do need to bring your own towel and a 100yen coin for the coin locker. The money will be returned by the machine once you insert the key back. There are 2 hot onsen and 1 cold onsen. One of the onsen (hot) will be outdoors where you can enjoy the view of uh.. various buildings.
Only 2 nitpicks for this hotel.
1. It can be hard to find. Once you see Kyoto Tower, head to the left and keep walking, you will actually pass by another APA hotel but just keep walking for another minute and you'll find it. The walk will be about 5 minutes.
2. The rooms are very small and the closest convenience store is also a 3-5 minute walk away.
Nevertheless, with this price, I can't ask for more. Highly recommend it.
