The hotel was clean and a short 5 min walk from Kyoto station. The reception staff were pleasant and helpful. The room was a Japanese semi-double and so the size is quite small, but at this price this hotel was a very nice one. Short walk from the hotel you will reach the train station and also the bus terminal, so it was very easy to get around Kyoto town, and surrounding area either by train or by bus.

Close to Kyoto Station Complex and therefore near the heart of town this is a well placed hotel for a short stay in Kyoto. Benefiting from a large taxi rank across the road it was convenient for the trips we made to the 'Golden' Temple and to the Goin district which are the two 'musts' we would recommend in Kyoto.
The Hotel is clean modern and comfortable . We didn't use the restaurant although it looks quite upper market from the outside. The Room was a small single for double occupancy typical of the std Japanese Hotel type. Nothing to write home about but no complaints either.

This is a very decent, clean and comfortable hotel a short suitcase pull from Kyoto's huge railway station, although slightly tucked away. The restaurant looked fine, but we did not try it.

The reception staff were pleasant and helpful. The room was a standard Japanese semi-double and so the size you would expect for the money. It had a fridge and the air conditioning was effective - these were the most important things as we visited in August. the rooftop spa was a great feature.

The onsen (spa) on the roof is a very pleasant feature. Part of it is indoors and part is open air. Remember to have a good wash and rinse before getting into one of the pools. There are a couple of things you could usefully know that we found out in the traditional manner (the hard way). One is that it has two distinct sides segregated on gender lines - we kind of assumed that we would go into separate changing rooms and meet up in the middle. Maybe that is the Japanese catering for western visitors' sensibilities or maybe their love of peace and quiet. The other thing is that when the girl on reception said "all you need is a 100Y coin and your yukata" (the latter is provided in the room) we should have taken it absolutely literally. I went into the changing room, kicked of my flip flops, changed into my voluminous blue patterned swimming shorts and slipped on my yukata hoping to merge seamlessly into the onsen as if I had been to one before. Even without my glasses on, I realised my mistake immediately. I felt like Mr Bean on Holiday. The purpose of the yukata is for getting from your room to the onsen changing room, the coin is for the locker to put the yukata in along with your room key-card, swimming shorts do not figure in the process at all. There were a few of the small towels in use, but these would only cover your modesty if you were modest about your head as they really are folded up and balanced there like it says in the books. It was quite funny, and did not stop me going back the next evening - the hot water takes away the aches of walking about all day.

Practical tips - there are three APA Hotels in Kyoto and none of them is that far from the station, and this is the little one. Kyoto station has two very distinct sides (not the To-Ji side, you want the side facing towards the Kyoto Tower and turn left, go under the overhanging part of teh station and carry on) so you need to get your navigation right and if you ask directions stress the "Horikawadori" which is the name of the main road that runs behind the hotel. There is, however, a very nice shopping mall across from the other side where you can find groceries and drinks.

Suggested day out of Kyoto - get a train to Nara.

The location of the hotel is near and round the corner of the Kyoto railway station. It comes with basic facilities is similar to other cities hotel (which mean nothing like what you expected as a Japanese style room). The room is small and so is the toilet. However, the room does come with television but not safe deposit box (if you need either of this or both). The room does have a fridge for use. There is no specific cupboard, however it does has a space for hanging clothing. The hotel does have an elevator. It also allows free storage of your luggage. It has a quiet environment for a good night rest. The Main Railway Station is about 10-mins walking distance and also there are a few stores before reaching the hotel. The hotel lobby and room come with free wifi. The spa or public bath area is bigger than its sister hotel in Osaka. It has an indoor and outdoor pool. The hotel also has lesser floor then its sister hotel in Osaka which translate to lesser people using the public bath area.

Room Tip: Try to get the bigger room then selecting the smaller room.
