Reviewed January 31, 2013

I was really impressed with this hotel. It is only a couple of years old and incredible value for money. The lobby decor was modern tasteful and welcoming. The staff were cheerful and so helpful. Advice from the lovely concierge assured we saw the best of Kyoto in the short time we were there. The rooms were a good size with beautiful bathrooms and the location was brilliant for shopping, walking and bus's to the many sights. Gion district was about a 10-15 minute walk and had countless choices for eating. I would definitely recommend this Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask on booking in for a possible upgrade, staff are very helful.

The hotel has a great location of Sanjo bashi.
Hotel is modern suitable for the younger middle age who are on their way of making it on their own.

Rooms are narrow, with huge TV screens, modern interior which is kept ultra-clean and spic-n-span.
Bed is great (AAA) although quite firm as to Japanese taste with high quality linen.
Bathroom very modern, bath area separated from basin and toilette by glasswall and door. Superb fittings with an additional rainforest shower head. Amenity tray is lacking though, no face soap, no aftershave, no cotton wool, no comb just hairbrush, toothbrush with a minimal head (unusable).

Breakfast very good ($20-25), but you can have a coffee and a french toast at the next door Boulangerie for $5. Or go to Starbucks 70 yards away for the usual offering n price.

If you are old money or a more sophisticated upper middle age professional you might be better off at my usual hotel; Kyoto Okura Hotel.

Wow! We felt like we had hit the jackpot when we reached this hotel. Although the room was cramped (three of us in a two bedroom room - so a third bed had been squeezed in) we managed to fit ourselves and our big suitcases in, and had a wonderful time in Kyoto. The concierge were helpful (particularly with the bus timetable), the location was great for transport (either bus or train were just around the corner), and five minutes away from the central cultural district in Gion. After staying in Tokyo we were impressed by the price of the hotel and by its modern interiors, plush carpets, and space-world bar. But one of the best things about this hotel was the bakery next door! Absolutely fabulous! If you're feeling a bit homesick for western food there was a fancy pizza place on the other side overlooking the canal. All in all, would love to stay there again.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. The hotel itself is nice (new and with modern decoration) and properly located (5 minutes from the main restaurants street and also walking distance from Gion district. From the Kyoto train station is 10-15 minutes by taxi, you can additionally go by metro, but that is more complicated and not worthy in our opinion).

We stayed in room 212 and honestly the room is a shame for the price we payed. 2 single beds instead of one bed for us, no single place to open our suitcases (we had to do a puzzle in the room to be able to open them!), no views at all (room is interior and in the lowest floor, so do not even try to see the sun light).

If you go there, make sure you try to specify your room details before.

A good thing that they have is that in the second floor (actually in front of our room) they have a laundry room so you can wash your clothes yourself for a good price!!

Room Tip: Try to specify your room requirements before. We stayed in 212 and we did not like at all.

This is definitely the hotel to go to if you are do not want to stay in a ryokan in Kyoto. The location is just great for walking, shopping and going out in the evenings. Transport to other areas is also very accessible by bus, taxis or underground.

The hotel itself is very nicedly designed with a spacious attractive lobby and reception, a nice bar and very comfortable rooms. Service is excellent and the staff are very friendly.

Would definitely love to go there again and highly recommend to all.
