Our first trip to Japan and we were lucky to get such a nice little hotel in such a splendid position. We walked to the main street and the bus stop was 50 metres away and we used the bus a lot to both get around and get to the bus station. The room was a good size, clean and... More

We stayed here for 5 days, 5 nights and had a wonderful experience. The room was a large American-sized space with plenty of lights and outlets for our laptops and iPhones. Since we were on the 6th floor, we also had a wonderful view of the Higashiyama District. The hotel is around the corner from the Yasaka Shrine and the... More

So the location... More

We took cab from Kyoto Station (about $12), or about 10 min walk from a local subway station. Hotel is right next to shopping/eating area and shrine/park in Gion. Lots to do and see here. Check-in easy. Left our bags & when we came back to check in, bags were in room! Room and bathroom are huge, clean, updated, &... More

And room to walk around.When booking we... More

Good value in a terrific location. The hotel is easy to access by bus. Simply catch the bus from the Kyoto Rail station. There are several great restaurants nearby along with many historic sites. The staff will provide all the help you need.

The hotel is right were you want to be a few steps from Kyoto. The room was basic, with a great two room bathroom. However, there was a stench likely coming from the carpet and breakfast was not included. Not room service also if it is something you count on. Not a big problem as Lawson is right across the...

Loved this hotel. The extremely helpful staff helped us from making local calls to clarify information on tours we had booked to calling cabs when we needed transportation. The location is excellent, a lively neighborhood near restaurants, bars and shops. The rooms are big and comfortable and the breakfast buffet offers many options. What more can you ask for?
