“Nice budget hotel”
Reviewed February 25, 2010

Location was a big plus for this hotel. It was a pleasant 15 minute walk to the train station, and they also have a shuttle bus that runs to and from the station every 15 minutes. The four computers in the lobby were very handy if you don't carry a laptop. The desk staff was always very helpful. The laundry room was all in Japanese, but with the help of pictures and a fellow traveller, it could be done. The rooms were not new, but cleaned very well. No tourist attractions nearby, but that was OK.

I stayed there for 4 days with my wife and my two daughters.
It is good value for money.

They provide periodic bus to go to Kyoto central station (5'), which is very good and convenient to then take JR train, metro or buses to visit Kyoto and area.
here is as well a metro station at walking distance.

Staff is very friendly; they helped us witrh luggage transferts between Kyoto and Tokyo.

Rooms are small, but clean and comfortable to sleep.

Lot's of restaurant and place to take breakfast at the Kyoto Station (which is huge !)

I have stayed at the Kyoto Dai-Ichi Hotel twice and will stay again . They provide a free shuttle service to and from the train station even though it is a short walk . The rooms are small , and I really mean small ! , but clean and comfortable . The bathroom is also small but spotlessly clean . The front desk staff spoke English and was very helpful . Free internet service is provided in the lobby - you can use their computers or hook yours into on the ethernet cables provided . My room included breakfast which consisted of rolls , salad , tea and coffee . The rate was about $58 which I felt was very cheap even though the rooms are small .

  • Liked — Cleanliness of rooms and helpful staff
  • Disliked — Nothing
