Hotel the Lutheran is something of a secret hidden from Western tourists. Its website is not easily navigated if you cannot read Japanese and it does not come up in searches on many booking sites, such as Expedia. However, its reviews on Tripadvisor were very positive and broadly deserved.
The hotel staff were friendly and spoke a little English. The hotel is attached to a Lutheran convention centre; however, the staff did not seem concerned that we were two groups of gay male couples wishing to share double beds. They checked with us that our booking was correct, but did not question it further.
The hotel rooms were very surprising for such an economical business hotel – light and airy and much larger than expected. The hotel facilities were excellent and breakfast (which was included) good.
The location was the hotel’s only drawback: travelling anywhere necessitated a ride on the subway. However, the subway is clean, efficient and reasonably priced. We had chosen to stay in Osaka as a central point for travelling to Kyoto and to Koya-san. It took around 90 minutes each day to travel to Kyoto.
