Excellent4.0 / 5
Spacious but dusty
I booked the Semi-double Room, Non Smoking (120cm bed, 2 guests only) for 4 nights. It was spacious compared to the other 2 hotels I stayed in. There is a water boiler machine that I use everyday to boil green tea. Yum. The only thing I would complain about is the musky smelling air. I had to open the window just to clear up the smell. And also, it is must to get housecleaning every day because I notice the bed sheets tends to get dusty pretty easily.

It was an OK stay. The hotel is more like upgraded Hotel 6 style. It was clean, but more on the budget style. One morning the we did not have water - they apologized profusely and by the time we got back it was back around 4pm it was back on. During the night it was very hot. The hot air was flowing from the A/C went, AC was off. When I tried to explain to the front desk - they said it is "the building". We had to have a window open all night. In the other hotel, I saw a note saying that they have central heating/cooling system and they adjust it to what they think is comfortable. So, I think that we had the same thing in Smile hotel. Room size is standard in Kyoto, Tokyo... full size bed (semi-double room) + space at the foot of the bed to open two carry-on suitcases. The location is great. Buses stops block away each direction to reach most of the attractions and Nishiki market is a walking distance (10 mins). We also walked to Gion (20-25 mins walk). For breakfast get downstairs, turn left and a block or two away there is a small cafe operated by a lady with bike inside. Should be before you get to big interaction. She is open Mon-Fri

Comfortable hotel with cheap price, good location
Although we booked a semi-couple room, the room is very comfortable with a soft bed, bathtub. The location is 10 mn away from the subway station but it is a very good choice for its comfort and good price
