This hotel is hands down the much more superior of the 2 hotels that we stayed, 2 nights each, in Kyoto. It is nicely situated on the relatively quiet side of Shijo-dori, with just about 10 minutes walk from Shijo-Kerasuma, that means turning left as you come out of the Shijo (Metro) Station via exit 2. The Fresco Store and Family Mart round the corner provide added convenience.
The cozy family-lounge-like lobby is on the second floor, manned by some very cheerful and helpful staff. Here WIFI is easily accessible and free Illy coffee and green tea latte are provided out of the vending machine at the corner by the lobby and various hygiene toiletries are conveniently available just beside the lift.
The room, though understandably not too spacious, is spotlessly clean and the beds absolutely comfortable. The air-conditioner and various equipments are in immaculate working condition, making it a real joy to even spend extra few minutes in the toilet!
We are glad to have made this choice.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
