APA Hotel Kyoto Eki Horikawadori
Ranked #297 of 406 Hotels / Ryokan in Kyoto
Reviewed May 24, 2008

We stayed in this hotel because of its proximity to lively Kyoto Station , the metro to the convention center, and its price. When we got there, having traveled in Japan for a week, we begged for the biggest room they had - as we realized that business hotel rooms might be painfully small. We had a huge handicapped room with a large bath, excellent for doing laundry... No. 508. ( about US$150)There was plenty of room for twin beds, a small closet, and another hanging space, plus an el for the desk area. Everything worked well, we had lovely clean sheets every day, and fresh yukata robes. The place was spotless. The desk staff could not have been more helpful and their English was pretty good. We did not ever have the hotel breakfast, preferring to try the Gran Via, Hyatt, and Rhiga Royal buffets, which were all excellent. and pricey (averaging US$25 apiece) Breakfast is the one meal where we missed American food, though Japanese breakfasts are i usually nteresting and well done. There are good convenience stores nearby and a huge BIC electronics store, not to mention terrific restaurants at Isetan Department Store. (dinners were cheaper than breakfast)

This hotel is in a brilliant position just a few minutes walk away from the amazing JR Kyoto Railway Station, is quite new and modern and was very reasonably priced which explained its constantly busy reception area.
We knew to expect smaller hotel rooms in Japan than other Asian countries but our twin bedded room here was the smallest hotel room we had ever encountered. I particularly chose a twin room as I knew we would get more floor space than a double bed room but this room, in no way catered to foreign visitors lugging 2 large suitcases. Hanging space was at a minimum and we had to keep both cases closed and standing up in a corner and if one of us wanted to move around the room the other had to sit on the bed. The spotlessly clean and well equipped bathroom was a tiny prefabricated unit that was less than a meter wide and very claustrophobic. On the plus side- The staff were friendly, the windows opened for fresh air, the king single beds were comfortable, the lobby offered 2 internets at about $1 for 10 minutes and a microwave oven, and on the top floor were lovely Japanese style segregated hot baths available for Y100 ($1.20). I would only recommend this hotel to those travelling with very little luggage.
