“Cosy, comfortable, convenient.... Nothing amazing though”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2007

The hotel can be reached underground from the station, by heading to Avanti department store, then taking the elevator in the left corner. This goes direct to the hotel's 2nd floor reception (2nd US, 1st UK) and then on to the room floors.
The room was large for Japan, and the bathroom was not as small as some can be. The decor was clean, but worn and there were less comforts than usual - i.e. no safe, only instant green tea, no coffee. However, the bed was comfortable and the rates are good.
The hotel is south of the main railway station, which means you are separated from much of the town's centre. It's a 10 minute walk through the station to get anywhere, so it would be worth checking out hotels north of the station too.
For me, Kyoto was surprisingly quiet in the town centre... Then we found the Gion area! This had much better shopping, bars, restaurants.

  • Liked — Comfortable
  • Disliked — Smoky - like a lot of Japanese hotels, they allow smoking in most rooms

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2007

Stayed here for 3 nights this August. A convenient location within walking distance of the massive Kyoto train station. The hotel is on the South side of the Kyoto train station so you will have to cut through the station to go to the bus terminals and main sites. A very good location though because taxis are relatively cheap and the station itself has lots of amenities, restaurants, stores, etc. A fun moderately priced mall is attached to the Hotel Keihan including a Uniqlo which is like a Japanese Gap. I would stay here agin. Internet access in the room.

  • Liked — Proximity to Kyoto Station
