A very small room on western standards but the room was better than I expected for the price I paid in such a convenient location.

Great location, overpriced, TEENY TINY rooms
I stayed here with my husband and brother for 2 nights, I booked 2 rooms through I don't recommend this place, despite the 2' walk to Kyoto station and decent breakfast. It is overpriced and the rooms are ridiculously small. I would rather walk a few extra minutes to the station to be in a room where I can open my suitcase without asking my husband to climb onto the bed or leave the room to free up space. ;) Pros: 1)The biggest selling point is its proximity to Kyoto Station - 2' walk. We made day trips from Kyoto to Nara, Osaka, etc, the JR trains/Shinkansens for which depart from Kyoto Station. Also buses and trains to various destinations in Kyoto leave from Kyoto station. So, the proximity certainly helps. 2)The buffet breakfast is pretty good with a selection Western and Eastern fare. Cons: 1) Rooms here are ridiculously small compared to any other hotel room I have stayed in. I routinely stay in New York City hotels as well as hotels in Europe. 2)Moreover, the tiny rooms are jam packed with useless amenities further taking up space that does not exist - our room had an air purifier gadget in addition to the AC, 2 air freshener spray bottles, several magazines, a huge flat screen TV, some sort of electric kettle in addition to coffee maker, and bunch of other knick knacks I had no use for. 3) Given the room size, the place is significantly overpriced compared to the 4 other hotels in Japan we stayed in(Kyoto, Tokyo and Miyajima)

AC broken in a small stuff room
Our booked room was booking as "smoking" due to availability. Our AC and air purifier were both not working making the tiny smoky room a bit unbearable. The hotel was advertised to have AC but when we contacted the manager on duty there was no clear reason why ours was out of service

Close to Kyoto Station
Hotel is about 5 minutes walk from Kyoto station. As you get out the main central gate in the front, go left. When you see the Family Mart at the corner, cross the street to your left and walk about 1 to 2 blocks and you'll see the hotel on your left. There are many restaurants and shopping, and Kyoto Tower is right across from Kyoto Station. Easy to get around from the station. Room is small but you expect that in Japan.
