It just doesn't get more depressing than the Super Hotel Kyoto Shijokawaramachi. You know how some hotels leave you a disposable razor? This place should give you an unlit oven and a noose. The room is literally less than five feet bigger than the bed, with maybe a foot between the bed and the cheap, half-sized vinyl couch. The desk and even the TV are covered with paper ads. The bed felt like a cement slab topped with a couple layers of cardboard. The walls are scratched and scuffed from a thousand other visitors.
The worst part, though, was the window. Frosted glass, so you couldn't see through it, and locked so you couldn't open it. Which means you're paying $100+ to stay in a tiny, dirty white cell. The difference between this place and a prison? A prison has a workout room.
Anyway, people need to be warned. We're not just at the bottom of the barrel: we're drilled through it and now we're boring through the floor. I would sooner cancel my vacation than stay here again.
