Travelling on june. It was modest old hotel and we got good price. We were really happy with what we got considering the price we paid. The hotel location is right opposite to Kyoto station. We just needed to cross the street or took underground pass to get to the hotel.
Again room was small as it is common in Japan. Dated interior but clean and everything functioned well. No view from hotel window. Free wifi. There was lawson and copy shop across the street or couple minutes walk within neighborhood. There were plenty eateries in underground shop houses where the entrance was right in front of the hotel. Amenities was standard without bottled water, of course.
Kyoto station is strategically located in kyoto transportation system, so it is a good place to be the base for exploring Kyoto. Inside Kyoto station there is Isetan dept store with its attractive architectural design. Kyoto tower is next to the hotel, we could see it clearly in the evening from Kyoto station. Tourist information center is in the kyoto station, where we got our Kyoto english map.
We easily used bus to explore Kyoto. Better buying a day pass for Y 500 if we want to explore Kyoto by bus. That cost will be the whole day transportation cost within Kyoto and can take to every corner of the Kyoto.
