“Clean, Convenient, Simple, Inexpensive”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

This hotel and it's sister hotel around the corner "Hotel Kyoto Station" are very well priced for their location just 2 blocks from the station. Stayed in a traditional Japanese style room with en suite toilet. (Used public bathing room.) Clean and simple. Proprietor very helpful. Not luxury at all but terrific location, excellent service, very clean, and unbeatable price. Did not eat breakfast there; went to train station. Tatami & futons are comfortable but walls are a bit thin so ear plugs would be useful.

I stayed at this hotel for one night whilst on a rail trip from Tokyo to Kyoto and Osaka. I got a good deal on this hotel for around the equivalent of £30 thanks to the discounts offered by the Japan Rail Pass. The date of my stay was actually April 2009 but Tripadvisor only allows you to backdate as far as October 2011 at the time of writing,

The location is fantastic, barely 200 metres from Kyoto main station. Even someone with no Japanese such as myself managed to find it easily. The check in staff understood a little English but the language barrier wasn't a major issue. The service was efficient as one would expect in Japan,

The room was full of slippers! You have to remove your day shoes outside the room door, then put on a set of slippers for the room, then another set for the bathroom! (Crime in Kyoto or even Tokyo is almost non-existent so do not be afraid to leave your shoes outside overnight, besides the corridors of the hotel probably have a million security cameras patrolling them!) The bed was quite small but anyone under about 1.8 metres would be comfortable enough.

The bathroom took some getting used to but the instructions on how to operate the (very futuristic) toilet and the shower were also in English. The toilet itself has about four or five flush settings! Everything worked perfectly and the shower was a godsend after a whole day on trains!

I booked room-only so cannot comment on meals; I bought dinner and breakfast at Kyoto station, both cheap and tasty. As with many countries, buying at the station is cheap; buying on the train can be costly and not worth the extra money spent,

If anyone has a Japan Rail Pass and wants cheap central accomodation in Kyoto they can do far worse than this hotel,

Highly recommended!
