Due to getting sick when i was on vacation in Japan, I opted to stay in Kyoto longer and hence had to extend my stay at the inn I had booked or a new accommodation. Opted for the latter. Checked reviews online and hotels that apparently still had availability before heading over here to check in.
They were a tad surprised I came in without booking but no problem they had availability and checked me in. Was quick, painless and professional.
Spoke english, no problem communicating whatsoever.
Location is excellent, a less than 5 mins walk from Kyoto station. Everything you need is close-by.
Room is clean, quiet (even though close to the heart of the city, which I was surprised about), had the standard items you would expect included for a 3-star hotel.
Price is also fairly reasonable. I paid i think 8400 or 8600yen for the one night.
Did not encounter a smoky (cigarettes) smell when I was at the hotel whether it was at the lobby, front, hallways and my room. This was not the case with a hotel I stayed at in Tokyo.
*Note they also do provide baggage delivery service assistance as I saw many many luggage (suitcases, duffelbags, you name it) in the lobby in front of where the concierge desk was located. By the way, I really do recommend using this service travelling between cities (would say it is a must, as I learned the hard way).
