You can spend a fortune for hotels in Kyoto, I know I have been a few times. This worked out well for a very reasonable price. Great checkin staff and rooms very comfortable and clean. If you choose this type of hotel get use to small rooms but all very clean well equipped and so much better than the more expensive alternatives that quite often disappoint and sometimes are not in such good locations as this one. Great free Onsen on the top floor. We had both single and twin rooms booked and both were great. Free noodles in the restaurant in the evening was a nice touch -

Room Tip: A tip for all of these Business Budget hotels that are all over Japan is that the rooms are small an...

Stayed there for three nights in Oct 2013. The location was excellent as it was just 5 mins walk from kyoto station. Exit from main JR central exit and turn right, walk then cross the road and you can see the hotel. Lawson was situated right next to the hotel. Room amentities include mini fridge, hair dryer, slippers and bathrobes. Complimentary mineral water was also provided on a daily basis. Free ramen provided in the dinning room from 9pm onwards where you walk to the counter and order the ramen. You will get a number and then wait while they cooked your ramen on the spot. Free hot/cold water also provided. Microwave also available for use. Only cons is the room was quite small and housekeeping only clear the trash, made the bed and top up free water but do not vacuum the floor, which I found to be quite strange....and the aircon was off the first night and they finally turn it on after we complain to the reception.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Dormy Inn in Kyoto. The rooms are clean with a compact but good shower (there is no safe so you have to give your valuables in at the reception). There is a free drinks refreshment room, free ramen is given between 9 and 11pm, you can get reasonably priced massages and to top it off there is a little onsen at the top! Some pretty nice extras! It's really close to the wonderful Kyoto station and there's a Jumbo karaoke branch right opposite. Great fun.

My partner and I stayed here for four nights in October 2013. We have been travelling a lot in the past few years, and this is one of the BEST hotels we have ever stayed at.

I am quite a clean freak and very picky when it comes to hotel accommodation. This place was immaculately clean from the room, lobby and even the hot bath areas. The amenities were very good - they actually had Shiseido hair products at the hot baths.

The housekeeping staff were great, they even folded my PJs and placed them on the bed! Their attention to fine detail is just amazing. The staff at reception were also fabulous and always helpful.

For those who are unfamiliar with traditional Japanese hot baths, it may be worthwhile doing a quick google search on the etiquette in using them. Only because it may seem daunting not knowing what to do, while being fully naked in front of strangers.

I would definitely recommend this place and will be back! :)

Excellent and highly recommended beautiful hotel near the Kyoto Station. We were very impressed with the quality of the room and the fixtures. It was the best hotel we stayed in Japan and set the tone for the rest! Loved the staff, noodles in the lobby, amazing breakfast spread and the staff. We didn't use the hot springs (they don't allow tattoos and way too much nudity for me) but I did have a nice massage.

My husband and I stayed at the Dormy Inn Premium and Kyoto for 3 nights and left were contented with the service and accommodations. The hotel is very close to the Central Rail Station and the the currency exchange center. The staff were very polite and courteous. The room was small but comfortable. The bathroom had generous amount of toiletries as well as the heated bidet. Best of all the sauna, hot bath and hot springs on the 9th flr was A+. We had a relaxing stay at the Dormy Inn...The buffet breakfast was expansive and very filling!

Room Tip: In Japan, find a hotel close to the central rail station.

The experience was that good that I'd search for Dormy Inn chain hotels whenever I go to Japan. Public spa, a bit awkward at first but totally love it! Went three times a day while I stayed there, early morning, after a long day walk and before sleep. I can't wait to try other Dormy Inn when I go to Tokyo next year!

Good location, decent size room, convenient store right next to the lobby.

Too good!
