The Smile Hotel in Nishi (West) Akashi is just 30 minutes by bullet train from Kyoto. For those who have found it difficult to book a room in Kyoto, especially during cherry blossom season, it may be a good alternative. Room cost was reasonable and included an excellent breakfast. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the JR station, and trains were available at convenient times in both directions. The only negative for me was the high cost of laundry service - though it may be typical of hotels in Japan.

There's not much to see in the vicinity of the hotel - but I've got to say I was impressed with a down-to-earth bar nearby. The patrons were a friendly group and made me feel right at home.

Overall Smile was good value.
