    Would stay again
    Overall, a great experience. Location is great. Room is a good size with very efficient and functional amenities. The bathroom smelled just a bit muggy from the shower curtain, but otherwise, very good stay.

    Overall a great stay.
    The place was small but amazing. You have what you need except for maybe a iron. If there was I could not find it. They give you slippers, pajamas, safe, foldable table, chair that half fits into wall slot, hair dryer, shoe horn, flashlight, coffee items and tea, outlets for charging, refrigerator, and other neccessary items. The bed you could feel the springs in your back and it hurt my back every morning. The cover was warm and comfy. You also have the added benefit of air conditioning. Be weary though. It is in Japanese! I used bixby on my phone to translate. You can also use Google translate. That is all for now. May add photos later if I can edit this later.

    I really enjoyed staying in Kyoto, beautiful temples and scenery, lots of shops nearby, and the hotel has easy access to the tube system. My only criticism is that the room is very small and other than a couple of hangers on a coat hook theres nowhere to put your luggage/clothes.
