There's nothing to shout out about this hotel. It has a great location but the rooms are rather old and the bathrooms are extremely small. If you have a kid to travel with and you only need a place to sleep, then its ok to stay here.

Older hotel property shows some wear, but the location is great. First time having an old-fashioned physical room key instead of a key card. Just a few steps from exit 6 of Shijo subway station and a short walk from the elevator exit 4 of Shijo station. Helpful staff was able to communicate easily in English. Wifi is a little slow, free computers for guest use in lobby. 11am check-out time better than 10am at some other hotels. Free bottle of water every day. For a fee of ¥300/bag can have your bags shipped to/from their welcome lounge in the building right next to Kyoto station. Great place to rest peacefully before catching your train or if arriving before check-in. Welcome lounge has free water/tea/coffee/juice and restroom.

We stayed 2 nights in a triple room as part of a package tour. The hotel and room seemed dated, room size with 3 twin beds felt small. The AC didn’t seem to work the first night but was rectified the second night after we informed the front desk. The bathroom was small, didn’t seem to have any fan/ventilation and has a bad musky and moldy odor. We had to leave the bathroom door open to air out the bathroom. The location is very good, right on Shijo Station and about 8mins walk to Nishiki market and Teramachi shopping street. Along the way there is Daimaru and Tokyu Hands. As it is part of a package we couldn’t tell if we are just getting what we paid for. Starbucks onsite.

We were booked into this hotel for 2 nights as part of a 3 day tour to Nara and Kyoto from Tokyo. Initially we were disappointed to be so far from the lively main train station with its shopping and restaurants but realized on our free day how great the location is..minutes from the Main Street with its many shopping arcades, the fabulous food market and 10 minutes to cross the river into the older part of the city, and the subway was right next door. However the hotel itself was disappointing. The entrance looked promising but on second glance, very tired with zero atmosphere. Lobby lounge/bar was in basement, dark and unwelcoming. Restaurants were empty. No life at all.
The room was an okay size for one person if you were organized. Bathroom very small and only one large and one small towel provided. Decor and fixtures were all very basic. However, the bed was comfy and surprisingly, the pillows were excellent! It was very quiet which was good for sleeping but we did feel at times that we were alone in the hotel! Staff was pleasant with basic English only so were not great at answering questions or directing to restaurants etc. So, if you want location and not much more, then this would be an okay choice for you.

The location is perfect, right on Shijo and very close to nishiki market, we walked every where. The room was nice and big. We were on the 14th floor and watching trami typhoon safely. The hotel has a Chinese restaurant where I finally found something vegan for me to eat. The bathroom was tiny and outdated but we didn’t really care. I’m allergic to feathers and when I asked for a pillow that’s synthetic I got a rock hard buckwheat filled one, that bummed me out. All in all it wasn’t bad and the staff was very nice and helpful. Some floors were for smokers and stank really bad even if the elevator just opened for a minute on that floor.

Room tip: Choose a room on a high floor on a non smoking floor
