“Perfect location, nothing extraordinary but also nothing to complain about.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Location is awsome. Just across the street from the main JR station. You can just get off the train, unload your baggages, load your batteries and start sightseeing. (No extra street noise in the room by the way).

Hotel is not very remarkable itself, but a decent, modernly equipped and perfectly clean place. The staff is super friendly, you get good wifi, free coffee and tea etc.

Also, only moderately expensive given the location.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

We had a 5 day trip from Tokyo to Kyoto, booked through japanican.com. A very smooth operation in all regards - the Bullet train both ways and 4 nights in a twin room at the Hokke Club. A great location just out of the northern entrance of the station - right across from the bus area, The hotel is almost next door to the Kyoto Dome.
The twin rooms are very comfortable and seem a lot bigger than the double rooms. The front desk staff are very friendly - high levels of staffing means you'll never have to wait for anything.

A great base for exploring Kyoto by foot - in the five days we caught only one train and one bus and manged to see most of this amazing city's historic sights. The only slight drawback is that most of the better spots for nightlife are a 20-30 walk uptown; most of the restaurants in the station area are more for a quick meal than a night out.

The package tour with the 4 nights accommodation was not much more than the cost of a return trip from Tokyo to Kyoto. All up, great value

I booked this hotel for a last-minute vacation with little knowledge of Kyoto. When we arrived, first pleasant surprise was that it was literally across the street from Kyoto Station. Very convenient! The staff was very polite and greeted us warmly. Our room was spotless clean and very cozy.This is really all you need. No frills, but lovely and very clean. The double twin room was very spacious. I specified non-smoking and would recommend doing that.
On our last night, we stayed in a small double room,which was in fact small but also very clean and cozy. Sakashita was so helpful with tourist information and spoke amazing English. Overall, I give this place 5 stars!

Hotel Hokke is right opposite the Kyoto Station. Shopping, eating & transport all there. Just take the underground pass near the hotel to cross over.

Love the kimono, origami paper cranes & green tea bags in the room.

The hotel doesnt serve breakfast but there is a 24 hour eatery near Yodobashi Camera (round the corner). Walk along the side street past McDonald till you reach the second intersection. Its called Sukiya & breakfast sets cost from 300-500¥. Locals eat here.

For lunch or dinner, there is a All You Can Eat Restaurant called Harvest in basement Food Street of Tokyo Station. Only about US$20 pp. A lot of choices for vegetarians (my son). Or Ramen Street on top floor where you can try all of ramens of Japan.

This hotel has an excellent location just opposite the railway station as well as the bus station which makes it very easy for travelling. The staff are very polite. The rooms are small but very clean. Only thing is the check in is at 3 pm so be sure you have everything chalked out. We reached there at 10 in the morning, left our luggage at the reception and went sight seeing before we could check in at 3 pm. Buses available to Gion and Higshiyama from the bus station. Lot of eateries around. Highly recommended for convenience.

The hotel is located directly in front of the Kyoto JR station, on the north side. It makes access to everything in Kyoto very convenient. There are plenty of restaurants from all price ranges and cuisines within walking distance.
Our room was very small, especially considering the price. There was barely room for a full size bed. There was no closet. In the bathroom, the same faucet supplied water to the sink and the shower (with a diverter valve) so one could use only the shower or the sink at any one time. The wall dividing the rooms is also quite thin, so if the person in the adjoining room turns and hits the wall while sleeping, you can hear it.
On the plus side, there is free Wi-Fi at the hotel.
The staff were attentive but when we went to pick up our luggage the following afternoon, the clerks go busy and forgot about us. They did apologize profusely, though.

Excellent location, great service and helpfully organised our luggage to be sent to our next hotel without a problem. Free wifi plus a computer area which allowed free printing which was useful. Right outside is subway entrance and bus to and from Gion and Higashiyama stops right in front. Highly recommended for where it is.
