Very clean, close to the station, convenient with laundromat in building and lots of Manga to read (or look at if you can’t read Japanese). The onsen was a very unique & pleasant experience as well.

Great location, nice comfort
The hotel is conveniently located, just a few minutes from the Kyoto Station, which provided great convenience for me taking the JR train to arrive at, and went around for sightseeings. My room was clean and comfortable. I very much enjoyed the Japanese Spa at the hotel after a full day exploration in Kyoto.

Nothing better than a great onsen.
The onsen was great! Although it was pretty much crowded and had to pick a late night time to go. The good, but got repetitive and might not be worth it. The room was a bit small but worth the value from the onsen.

Convenient, clean, highly recommended
We had 3 beds in the room and it was rather small. But we could still manage to eat in the room and found space to put 3 small carry-on luggages. The room is clean, smells good and furnitures were good. Bed was comfy. Toilet is clean. The location is very convenient too - walking distance to the Kyoto station and lots of shopping and food nearby. I also love that they provided personal care items such as moisturizer, facial wash etc….
