everything u need and more
we loved staying at this hotel. it was 1 bus ride away from kyoto station and the bus stop is literally steps from the hotel. there is a Starbucks, souvenir shop and a massage place (bear hug) on the 1st floor, the hotel lobby is on the 2nd floor. staff was friendly and spoke English. i thought i chose the room rate that included breakfast but it didnt so we paid $13per person for the breakfast buffet and we enjoyed it, opens from 7-10am. the hotel is in the perfect location! walking distance to Gion, yasaka shrine, nishiki market, shijo dori &pontocho dori. and for everything else u can get on the bus right in front of the hotel, Google maps was very helpful. make sure u get a 1 day bus pass for 1 or 2 day subway/bus pass at the bus information Center. it will save u lots of money and super convenient since u need exact change for the bus. yes, the room is small but it came with everything u need. free wifi in the hotel, slippers, hot water pot, tea bags, mini refrigerator (u need to turn on), tv, hair brush, tooth brush, shaver, hair tie, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, tooth brush, body sponge, shower cap!!! the ceiling was a bit dusty and i had a hole in the wall but other than that it was perfect. i highly recommend!

Great Place To Stay in Gion
For a recent trip to Kyoto, I decided to stay at a local hotel knowing that it would be hot and humid at night. Due to various summer festivities in Kyoto, hotel rooms were very limited but luckily I found one at an APA location. Like all other APA hotels I have stayed at, the room was larger than what I have found in the Tokyo area which was a nice surprise. When entering the building, go straight to the elevators for the 2F which is where the check in counter is located. I found the hotel to be very clean and well kept, but like many hotels it is easy to find updates or repairs that need to be made. Having a room that faces the main road did encounter some noise from the street below until the festivities ended, but during other periods it should be no louder than any other hotel. The hotel is fortunately surrounded by plenty of restaurants and shops as well as being a short walk to both Keihan and JR train stations. For reaching Kyoto Station, a taxi is quick and fairly inexpensive (approximately 1,500 Yen). Overall it was a nice stay and would certainly consider staying at this APA Hotel location again in the future.

in middle of gion
Decent hotel, a little tight in space but manageable. In the middle of the busy gion area so that can be good or bad depending on what you're looking for. No direct line by train/subway to kyoto station, but not too bad for public transport access. Enough english by staff to make it work.
