Great location in fact the best location for exploring kyoto and beyond. Only downside was the high cost of food at the hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Most staff members speak English and are happy to recommend good places to go. Overall a great place to stay.

Had a complimentary upgrade to the premium (9th) floor so I'm reviewing based on a larger room.

Location: Excellent (10/10). Short walk to Nikishi Market, undercover shops, money changer (hard to find one in Japan), food at any time, bus stops, train station, shopping...you name it.

Amenities: Excellent (9/10). Cheap coin operated laundry with dryer on 2nd floor, reasonably priced vending machines at almost every floor, nice bar and restaurant. Gave a point less as they did not have some utensils for eating my takeaways but they did send one up on request.

Quality of Room: (9/10). Just a little small but excellent beds and excellent water pillows. Fantastic mood lighting throughout the room (and hotel). Internet in rooms are fast and stable. Mikimoto soaps and shampoos just did it for me. Quality shavers for premium floors are a bonus.

Super friendly staff and always attentive and helpful. Keep up the good work people!

Room Tip: 9th floor is the best (premium). Ask for an upgrade if they have one. I got it!

My family and I recently returned from a two day stay at this hotel and thought it was great value for money (in Japan!). It was very clean (as can be expected) and the toiletries were excellent and plentiful. The patisserie downstairs was excellent for breakfast, and the staff were extremely efficient, polite and helpful. There is even a very affordable laundry room which makes travelling with kids a whole lot easier. Would gladly stay again and recommend to others.

This hotel is probably one of the best I have stayed in on a family trip. The hotel is quite new and the rooms are nicely decorated and very clean. The service is excellent and staff is embarrassed when something is not working as it should. Breakfast is excellent with a selection of western and Japanese food. The location is also very convenient next to the large covered shopping streets on one side and the Gion area on the other side. For a visit to Kyoto, this hotel is a superb place to stay.

Really enjoying our stay here. The hotel is clean, quiet and comfortable. It's great to come back after a day sightseeing and flop on the beds!

We didn't choose breakfast but there's a fantastic patisserie just downstairs and a well stocked supermarket a few doors down.

Nishiki market is close by, as is Gion/Ponto-cho for nightlife. Everything you need is at hand, and plentiful buses link the various temples (buy the one-day travel card for 500 yen on the bus - fixed fare is 220 yen otherwise). There are lots of shops of various persuasions, and the Kyoto and manga museums are within a short walk.

We are really pleased with the hotel and would recommend it. The only minus point is the cost of the laundry service, which came in at an eye-watering £75 for the equivalent of a half load. Avoid if you can.

This hotel is located within a 10min walk to Gion, and a stones throw from the river and this means you are close by to many restaurants and nightlife.

The rooms were comfy, but only had two single beds in most rooms including ours. The staff were friendly and the location is perfect. The hotel has free Wifi which is a big plus. Also there is easy access to buses which makes sightseeing very easy (they all go past the main street which is very close by).

A good sized room by Japanese standards.

We recommend this hotel.
