Very Good8.0
Inoffensive. A step above an Airbnb.
As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. And with Resi Stay Higashiama you're getting an experience one small step up from an Airbnb. First you check in at their 6th floor office by the station (NOT at the property itself). This is fine, but what's annoying is that there's only stairs and no ramp to get up into the first floor of their office building. Have fun doing that with big, heavy suitcases. In the office, you encounter a hive of activity as everyone from all their various properties in Kyoto are checking in. The staff is typically professional and polite. The Resi Stay Higashiama property seems to have been a not-so-old apartment building that they converted into "hotel" rooms. They are very practical with beds, a small table/chairs, a compact kitchen, bathroom/shower, and washer. The latter was very helpful mid-trip to freshen up our inventory of clothes. The rooms are not charming however, other than the quirkiness of it being a very efficient, Japanese room. We heard folks from other rooms occasionally, but likely because they were on their balcony. We heard little street noise as the property is located off the main drag. Would I stay here again? Now that I've been through it, I wouldn't object but I'd probably look around some more first to see if there's something with a bit more charm.

Cons beat out Pros
The location of this accommodation is great, and the fact that you can wash clothes is nice (as long as you understand you have to air dry them on the balcony). Also- the room was comfortable and had nice decor. Two significant downsides- the check in procedure is super inconvenient and check out is surprisingly early. These 2 negative factors are bad enough to over shadow the positive.

Cool place in Kyoto
Very cool place, independent apartments. One thing we didn't know: you need to do the check-in at Kyoto station before you get to the apartment. Knowing this would have saved us a trip. Location is correct, with a large busy street full of restaurants within a 10-min walk. Subway station is 5 mins away. Rooms are good and clean enough. The standard apartment for 3 is too small for 3 people, but fits two. Apartment has a washing machine but not place to dry clothes. Had to make do on the balcony.

Great stay!
Great experience! They communicated everything effectively and was easy to find the office to check in and to find the building. The room was much more spacious then expected and it was very clean and comfortable. It rained nonstop and the hotel provided complimentary umbrellas which was so nice!

A nice place to stay near the heart of Kyoto
Good location, good price, good rooms. Will definitely stay here again! Especially now that I've figured out the somewhat oblique check-in process...
