I was late booking and there was little choice in Kyoto itself and what was available was very expensive. This hotel is about 20 minutes on the JR line from Kyoto. Not a big deal as I had a JR rail pass. Trains run about every 10 minutes or so. They are crowded in rush hour. The hotel is steps away from the station. Not much in the way of dining in the area. Two convenience stores but no 7-11 for non-Japanese ATM cards. The room was quite basic but clean. Reasonable but slow Wi-Fi but the wired internet was fast with my Apple Airport Express. No English TV channels. Staff were helpful. There was a laundry room apparently but I did not see it. Given the same circumstances I would stay there again
