8/10 Very Good

Very good amenities but location is a little far from all the main attractions (but very quite at night which is a plus). Breakfast can be a bit repetitive if you are staying multiple nights. Overall very good hotel with everything you need

Great stay here..
Best of the 3 Japanese hotels I've stayed in so far on my first trip. Friendly reception, kept my bag as I arrived a couple of hours before check-in, which is always nice but not a given. Provided iron and desktop board no fuss when requested next day. Got a room on the 9th floor (out of 10 I think) but no view to speak of as semi-opaque surface applied to windows (better than the complete blackout one applied in the previous hotel). Room fine, aircon and mini fridge as usual. Bathroom was great - bigger than the others with higher quality fittings. Shower was powerful. I had a single room but bed was 3/4 double which seems to be standard here for singles. Safe in the room also, which was a first on this trip. TV was fairly big, although at 90deg to the left of the bed so I had angle myself to watch it, but as usual just Japanese TV channels Location is good, a few mins walk from metro and about 30mins from the railway station. Plenty of amenities, restaurants and bars etc nearby... Definitely would consider staying here again next time I'm in Kyoto There's an attached fast food place that did a great breakfast for £2.50 ish

I highly recommend this hotel especially for solo female travelers! The woman's floor was amazing with the additional amenities and it is in a cute neighborhood near Nishiki Market with lots of great restaurants and shops! 10 minute walk from Ippodo Tea where you can enjoy traditional matcha. I feel sad that I can’t stay longer ! I have really enjoyed my stay and I will book this hotel again the next time I visit Kyoto. Thank you for such a nice stay!
