“Best value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for 3 nights and is my 4th time to Kyoto. The reasons for choosing this are location and price (10,000 yen for a twin room without breakfast). Extremely cheap!

1. Location
- directly opposite JR Kyoto station (go towards Karasuma exit)
- is only 10-15mins walk from JR station platform and 3mins from bus interchange
- Porta mall exit C is a few steps away from the hotel but please don't exit there with suitcase since there is no elevator but steps. Take the main walkways.
- is the best place to start your sightseeing with access to buses and subway and JR/Kintetsu rail
- get a bus pass for 500yen and you can covered 99% of the sightseeing areas. Subway is more expensive.
- lotsa food and shopping around the area (behind the hotel is a supermarket at B2 of Yodobashi, there are also lotsa electronics, cosmetics, stationeries, etc available). You can grab water, instant noodles, fruits, snacks)
-JR Kyoto has many restaurants, Isetan and other shops for young and trendy ladies)
-Ogawa coffeeshop is just right downstairs for breakfast/coffee/dessert
- there are no historic sites within 500m but if you like you can visit Kyoto Tower which is just 50m away

2. Rooms
- HUGE! At least 30sqm with plenty of room for luggage.
- comfy beds but not so good pillows.
- good sound proofing and extremely clean
- I wish their towels were more fluffy and thicker
-as usual they provide amenities like shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, razor, combs, cotton buds and sshower gel like other Japanese hotels
- the decor is basic but I can't complain for the price
- I know some reviews mentioned tiny rooms, just make sure you don't choose semi-double room if you like space. Is only a little more for that space which I reckon is totally worth paying!
- free wifi and fast speed
- our room has the view of JR station. This is apparently only for twin and bigger rooms. The other rooms hardly have any windows.

3. Service
- check in is at 3pm and checkout is 10am so is not great for those that arrive early from Osaka/Tokyo however they do keep the luggage for you and Japan is safe so trust them with your bags
-polite and basic English spoken
- self service is expected for moving your own luggage ans helping yourselves to the free maps, sightsee info and free facial masks at the hotel lobby.
- they provide safe keeping of passport since there is no safety box in the room.

Overall this is a highly functional hotel at a good price and accessible location. If you are fine with no frills, this is definitely for you. Do book early as I see that is very popular with tourists. I had to scout for many booking sites before finding an available room using Japanican.com.

Ps: there is a takoyaki van selling delicious octopus balls outside from 9pm. Pls try it being a famous local snack.

Te room was small, but clean and compact. Location was excellent. Only one minute from the exit of the Kyoto train station. Just walk across the road, it is next to the Kyoto tower hotel. The hole has its own tour write ups and you just take a photo copy of where your want to go including restaurants. The main bus stop is right in front, so no getting lost getting home by bus from anywhere.

Stayed 5 nights in this Hotel and I had heard that the rooms were small. I have to say that mine, Room 916, was quite large, 2 large beds, couch with table, closet, desk with TV, free WIFI, 1 window and 1 balcony, even though you could only open it a bit. The best of all was the location. You could not get any better than that. Right next to the Kyoto Tower, across from the Kyoto Station, the Bus terminal across the street and countless shops and restaurants nearby, including Starbucks and MacDonald around the corner for those who missed the USA. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: As I said, my was room 916 and it was great!

Stayed for 2 nights. Great location, right infront of the station. Very friendly and helpful staff. Quick and free wifi.

The hotel attempts to be ecological by giving guests an option for towel/bed sheets cleaning. The bed sheets made us itch the first night, so we asked for only the bed sheets to be changed. Cleaning staff were very nice as well.

We had a late night bus out of Kyoto, and had some shopping bags that needed refridgerating. The hotel staff kindly accepted to keep our bags and food cool until we left Kyoto. We had some work on our hands, and asked to stay in their hotel lobby to use the wifi as well after check-out, where our request was kindly granted.

Free hot/cold water server in the hotel lobby, as well as a computer room in the far corner of the lobby.

Overall, we had a very pleasant stay, and would come back again.

Stayed 3 nights. Great place to stay as Kyoto station practically looms over us.
After overnight flight from Singapore, Narita express, and then the bullet train, it was just great to be able to check into the hotel quickly as we walked there from the station in matter of minutes. The bus terminal is just across the road, and when we got back on public bus from seeing the sights, we literally walked back into hotel. Location, location, location was just great. Oh, having Simmons bed was a boon - felt like sleeping on our own bed , albeit a queen-sized one. Had stayed in bigger rooms elsewhere but not having the right bed, we never could sleep well. Hair dryer, electric thermos,

A very decent hotel for Kyoto.
We stayed one night and thought it very good.
Staff and free wifi made it perfectly suitable as a base, especially for those of you planning on using the Shinkansen and JR pass to visit the locality like Kobe.
