“Excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2007

Excellent place for a place to sleep if travelling to see the sights in Kyoto and Nara. Very close to the train station literally about 2 minutes away. Stayed here for four nights. The room is small but the bed isnt thankfully. The room was clean so were the sheets, yakuta and towels. The pod like bathroom is reasonably sized with a great bidet. The AC works like a dream and there is a television to watch even though there werent any English channels. The reception staff spoke marginal English but were very helpful and would go out of their way to help you.

To eat, the Seattle Coffee House in the foyer does a buffet breakfast and there are tons of hotels in the area you can pop into to eat. Afternoon and evening grub can be snagged at one of the many eateries at Kyoto Station. You can even go to Isetan and get some grub in the basement, come back to the hotel and use the microwave in the foyer.

i would recommend this hotel to single travellers on a budget, my room cost £112 for four nights

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2007

This is a good hotel to book if you are going to arrive in Kyoto by train. It is just a short walk from the station - you don't need a taxi.

It is also convenient for sightseeing, because it is very close to the bus station, with buses leaving regularly for all the major attractions. In summer, expect the buses to be full!

The room was fine - very standard fare, on the small side but perfectly adequate. We enjoyed the breakfasts, which were buffet style and contained an interesting assortment of options.

This is not a luxury hotel, but I would be very happy to stay there again.

Stayed August 2005

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2007

This was a classic business hotel, with very small rooms and capsule shower room. It had a Seattle Coffee house in the foyer for those missing their coffee hit and it also had internet access which was a reasonable price and reliable.

The breakfast was quite basic but ok.

It was in a pretty good location near the train station and very close to the massive Muji store, but to be honest I'm sure there are better places to stay in this beautiful city.
