Recent reviews

Good 7.8 From 819 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Excellent overall and in every way, but check-in was a bit problematic in that they would not give me a room ( without a charge), before the exact check-in time. That seems both unusual and likely unnecessary since they is virtually always previously unoccupied rooms.

Offers smoking rooms on a separate floor
Smoking rooms are isolated so no one is bothered or disrespected. Location is a block from the train and bus station and subway entrance so it is easy to get around quickly. There are at least three temples, two gardens, and a park with the railway museum and aquarium within walking distance. Don’t miss the garden within the park! It is a modern design and inexpensive well kept secret. Check-in was too computerized and rigid in assigning the room such that you cannot make a request regarding which direction your room faces even if that room is available. The check-in computer also is not user-friendly so it took longer to check-in than the old fashioned and more personal method. The mattress in my room should have been flipped more often. Amenities are awesome! This was my third stay at this hotel.

Exceptional 10.0
Shows respect to both smokers and nonsmokers. Smoking rooms are on one floor and intolerant people are not bothered. Great location near train and bus station, groceries, restaurants, shopping center, temples, garden, and a park.

The location is exactly what I was looking for. The Kyoto central station right in front of hotel so I could easily go everywhere in their excellent public transportation.
nancy, us6 night trip
Very Good 8.0
I'm big so rooms are small to me, ceilings low. Tub was nice and deep and wide (short, see 'big' above), good water pressure and heat. Amenities provided very nice and well thought out. Beds very comfortable (but short, see 'big' above), pillows not to my cultural preference. Quiet. No view (funny to see that on ratings inquiry). TV limited (don't care about that much) Wifi good. Excellent location. Excellent price. Restaurant & bar closed for private party when we tried to use it. Would stay here again and recommend to others.

Although the rooms are small, the hotel was great. The hotel was very clean and is located in a great location with shops around and easy access to transportation.

Dated, but very affordable and convenient
Front desk staff was hit or miss. Some were very very nice, some did not care at all. A stone’s throw away from Kyoto station, which was very convenient.
