Certificate of Excellence
Enjoy our hotel's modern Japanese design as you explore the historic capital. We are located in the heart of Kyoto, with easy access to all major tourist destinations. Step outside and it's only a short walk to Nijo Castle or Yasaka Shrine. Step inside and take in an undeniably Japanese, yet modern, decor. Perhaps that's why we've received TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence annually since 2011.

If this hotel was a car. It would be a 1989 bottom of the line Nissan Altima. While meeting the definition of a vehicle. It will never impress you or anyone else. It was clean. It had a bathroom. It had an updated lobby. If you need a extra blanket grab one while supply’s last. The point is. keep looking if you have medium expectations in your hotel.

Hotel is very modern and the room size is decent, especially when compared with hotels in Tokyo. The beds were very comfortable and we did not detect much outside noise. There are several nearby breakfast options should the in-house buffet be more substantial and pricier than you are looking for. It's a doable but healthy walk to the heart of the city though there are bus and subway options as well. All in all, the hotel is at a quite convenient location.

Our stay was just perfect. Given the price, I didn't expect much on this hotel but the room was very clean and spacious which was a true surprise. It was very easy to access from the Kyoto station and main touristic attractions. Hotel staff was very friendly. They speak English and they tried to help us whenever we needed. High level of hospitality. We are a large group (~70 people) from different countries and it was the first time for most of us to visit Japan. Almost all of people in our group said they would love to come back to this hotel. Highly recommended!! There is a nice Japanese restaurant on the first floor where you can eat breakfast. We did not have a chance to try, but it looked very clean and modern. There is a convenience store in front of the hotel.

Very very slow wifi signal and the staff deny to do anything to improve it. They just said they can’t do anything. I test the speed and it’s just 5 Mbps. It’s the basic accommodation but they can’t provide it to the guests.

Went online to search for a hotel and saw rave reviews on this. Photos of the room were highly misleading. I had a double bed bit what I saw on photos were shockingly different from actual room. It is small. I couldn't fit 2 regular luggage without doing am obstacle course. Plus our hand carry, it is a challenge. Another shocker was the price I paid online and the price I saw published on the hotel website. Although the dates were different, comparison was made for the same room and same week. I paid more than 50% more. Please do your homework and compare diligently. It is probably a low e star hotel so make a judgement of the price against the star ratings. Otherwise, location, cleanliness and convenience is as what many reviewers have stated. Just be careful in your expectations of the room size and price.
