“Convenient Place to Stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

As always, we had a good time at an IBIS hotel. Convenient location and excellent staff! I like how everything you need is provided. We stayed twice during our recent trip to Japan. Got a room with 2 complementary breakfast and the girl at the reception even gave our daughter a complementary breakfast too!

Just across the JR Kyoto Station and almost any choice of public transportation. Lot's of food and shopping choices nearby.

I was surprised, and happy of course that they didn't ask for a credit card for "blocking." That's trusting your customers right there!

Only reason for not giving perfect stars is the "ok" buffet breakfast and there were times when we smelled a 'sewer" like stench in our room for a few seconds. Happened twice.

Will I stay here again? YES!

Dear dredrums,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our hotel.
I was pleased that you enjoyed your time with us and you found the location of the hotel convenient. However I was concerned to read your comment about the stench. I have passed this information over to the housekeeping manager to investigate further.

We hope you will consider visiting us again should you return to Kyoto in the future.

Kind regards,

An excellent location just next to the main rail station in Kyoto. The free breakfast is terrific, with a few Western options but really a great tour of Japanese food (try the Japanese style curry, a sweeter version of the Indian staple). Staff is very friendly and helpful--Delta had delayed my luggage via Tokyo and the staff took care of calling the JAL offices to make sure my bags would arrive at the correct location. For shopping, check out Kyoto Avanti--six stories of trendy Japanese fashion at reasonable prices.

When most hotels in Japan offer Sand-based pillow, this one took the standard style of pillow. Thank you Ibis Style hhheheheheh. Finally we could get a good sleep here. Because of your fluffy pillows.
The location is the best! you couldn't find any better. Within walking distance to train station and many many options of food.
Shower area is also clean, water pressure is nice.
Everything in Japan seemed got shrunk in size, especially when it comes to room size. You couldnt believe human could live in that kind of a small space. But this one, the room size -small on international standard- but large according to Japanese standard.

I stayed here in July 2014 for 4 days with my family. The location is excellent as it's right across the station and convenient for tourists. The rooms are decent sized by Japan standard and the room supplies are adequate. The staff is friendly and helped us in finding directions, booking airport limousine,etc. I was surprised that the breakfast included a reasonable amounts of vegetarian food which was critical for us. Overall experience has been good. The amenities were quite good with a coin operated laundry. If a microwave could also be provided it would have been good for tourists who may want to warm up some food especially vegetarians like us. This is a business hotel and there are other options which have a kitchen etc. and therefore more friendly for a tourist especially a vegetarian.

Room Tip: I liked the rooms given to me facing the Kyoto station.

Great location across the street from Kyoto Station with easy access to all the public transportation. The beds are comfortable, no problem AC, and excellent water pressure in the shower. But the topper is the buffet breakfast. Good selection of western and Japanese selections in a well priced buffet. We were lucky enough to get the breakfast in a package deal. I will definitely return again to this hotel as there is plenty more to see and do in Kyoto.

Generally, this hotel location is very strategic because it is located in front of Kyoto Central Station. Therefore, it is easier for people especially tourist to access everywhere. The room quite small, but it is comfortable for sleeping. In addition, the bathroom is also very small.
Some of front desk officer are not too polite and cannot speak English fluently. Our bad experience is that Accor Advantage card can't be used as discount card for dining. We thought that every hotels in Accor network have the same benefits. Why this hotel has exceptions? This problem make us really disappointed.
The funny thing is, some of the staff in front desk and restaurant never saw Accor Advantage card. Thus, it is very weird as an Accor Hotels. For an advice, it is better for the hotel to give information about the Accor card benefits in the official website.

Room Tip: If you want a quite room, better choose high level.

Dear LaurensiusG,

Thank you for taking the time to pass on your comments.

I was concerned to read that you were disappointed as Accor Advantage Plus can’t be used as a discount card for dining. In fact not all hotels in Accor network have the same benefits. Here is Accor Advantage Plus website for your reference.

Literally across the road from the station! Could not ask for a better location. Rooms are nice and well appointed. Lots of places to eat near by. Parking was quite close for the hotel. Staff were really friendly and laundry service was excellent.
