We stayed three nights in this hotel. It is just crossing street from Kyoto train station and many bus start point. We traveled from Osaka to Kyoto and Kyoto to Tokyo all by train. This location is perfect for us. We bought daily bus pass from the hotel and easily go to major temples and shrines. We also got free upgrade to large room, which is larger than the room of Courtyard hotel in Tokyo. The hotel staffs are nice and helpful. The furniture is little old. They gave us free tickets to ride to tower. It is a good value stay.

Hotel is directly opposite the Kyoto Station.. Our room on Sixth Floor was fresh, clean , not musty as some reviews had stated.. beds very comfortable, room and bathroom were small compared to our standards but functional.. all that is needed when exploring the city is your objective.
Close by are a multitude of conveniences.. the bus station, trains, post office, department stores . I Setan and Yodobashi, Starbucks etc. and a mini city below of shopping malls & restaurants in the train station subway accesses.
Staff were very helpful,English speaking member always on hand.. a complimentary voucher for the Kyoto Tower viewing platform was unexpected and appreciated.
Overall a great budget hotel, functional and pleasant .. Look forward to staying there again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the station , on the higher floors, have a wonderful view of the nightly Aqua Fantasy Show..15 minute show every hour 7-10pm inclusive.

Location is very convenient. Near the Kyoto station. However, the hotel is very old, musty and outdated. The bathroom is very, very small. When we checked in, the air conditioner in our room was very hot. The bathroom is so small, there wasn't enough space to move. Overall, the hotel badly needs renovation. It's one of the landmarks in Kyoto and it should be maintained properly.

My wife and I with 2 kids (9 and 11) stayed there for 3 nights. We had a twin room with 2 beds. The bed is just big enough for 2 people (less than us queen and bigger than us twin).
Right outside train and bus station so it is extremely convenient. A lot of restaurants but also close to a shopping mall where there is a grocery store.
Hotel staff is very friendly. Don't expect this is a fancy place. As many people said, this is a out-dated building and room is small. But is clean and good enough for you to rest and it is what exactly it should be in this location.

I stayed here for 3 nights. I had booked something more expensive but having been in Japan a week I needed to economise :) This hotel is in a dated building but the room fittings are new. They haven't been able to raise the ceilings though and the combination of low ceilings and my narrow single room, plus an uneven floor, made me feel quite queasy. I also always check the fire escape route and it seemed to me that the door was locked. Also the staff speak little English and they gave me a smoking room despite requesting non. (This has happened to me elsewhere in Japan). Didn't like it, was glad to leave. On the plus side you won't miss it. Just make sure you exit the station via the main station not the shinkansen station. That way it's directly in front of you.
