“Good value for money”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

Clean, good location and close to public transport opportunities. No problems with the service. They were a big help in organizing our work related trips around the city. The food was ok and plentiful. We enjoyed our stay and would consider this hotel is we ever come to Kyoto again

Basic, no thrills, hotel located just south of kyoto station. No one is going to greet you at the door or carry your bags to your room but who needs that? The location is ideal if you want to pick up transportation each day to visit the sites. The downsides? Very smokey rooms and few if any non-smoking rooms. No wifi in rooms. No charm to speak of.

Stayed here for two nights in mid-May with a group of college students. The location is not ideal South of the train station - 15 minute walk through (under) the train station to the bus hub on the North side - a long haul at the end a temple seeing. My first impression based on the decor and the smell (thick, stale cigarette smoke smell everywhere) was of a cheap Las Vegas hotel, sans the gambling. Our non-smoking room was pretty nice - big enough. I could feel the springs in my too firm bed though, and no mini-bar. American breakfast was lacking - not very well done. Next time staying North of the train station.

As the other reviewers all say the best thing about this hotel is the location. It is just minutes from the subway, trains and buses around the main railway station. You can walk out of your room and be on the subway in 5 minutes. The airport buses stop right outside as well. I eat one meal in the Japanese restaurant and it was very good but very expensive and you could probably have got the same quality for half the price elsewhere. The Chinese restaurant is even more expensive so I didn't go there. The room was very expensive and twice what I paid in Osaka but that is probably just the Kyoto tourist prices.

This hotel is located very close to Kyoto train station and there is a bus terminal just in front of it. The location is indeed very good. But it is worth to note that there's no direct crossing from the station to the hotel. You must use a underpass which will be a burden if you are traveling with big luggages.

The hotel has a large looking lobby, plus decorations that is rarely to be seen in today's Japan hotel. It reminds me that it should be a tourist hotel back to when it was built. However, it is not in its best shape now. It's still clean, but looks old comparing to other modern business hotels I have stayed in Japan, with a slightly dimming atmosphere. My room is smaller than what I expected from this class of hotel. It's clean and comfortable, but Iooks a bit old fashioned, too.

There are 2 restaurants offer breakfast. A buffet restaurant and a Japanese style restaurant. Normally I will choose buffet. But This time, I chose Japanese restaurant because I thought Japanese cuisine would tastes better in Kyoto. I was wrong, it was tasteless. But maybe that's because I don't know how to appreciate it.

Anyway, for the price it costs, I expect a little more. But considering that most hotels in Kyoto are overpriced, i will say it is still an acceptable, average hotel.

The hotyel is across from the major railway station in Kyoto. The hotel is clean and well run, and is a great place to stay

Room Tip: Higher up gives a better view of the hills
