I loved this hotel! Economical, great location, friendly staff, clean and comfy room, free amenities, and modern design. It is right by the Gion neighborhood and the shopping district where most of the nightlife of Kyoto is located. Only minutes away from Sanjo subway station.
The staff could speak basic English and was very friendly and helpful which is simply commonplace in Japan (please tell the hotel staff in Europe and America they need to learn a few things from the Japanese about respecting customers)!
Breakfast is around 500 yen at the time of this writing. I think they provide salad, toast, and juice. I chose not to have breakfast at the hotel since there are so many great restaurants in the area as well as convenience stores on every block that sell snacks and ready to eat meals.
I took a bath every night which is something I don't always do at hotels. I usually take a shower, but the tub here is deep and cleaned well. The front desk also gives you bath salts when you check in for each night you stay at their hotel. Other amenities include a washcloth, headband, hair tie, razor, and toothbrush. This is only common in Japan. I've never been to any other country in the world that provides so many free amenities. It's always nice to have these things provided by the hotel when traveling.
Kyoto is a beautiful city. Hana Hotel made my stay in Kyoto even better. I only came away with fond memories of my vacation there. I'll definitely return soon!
