Great value and location
Great location near Kyoto station, very quiet street. we found the pillows to be uncomfortable and they were quick to offer a more western style. Great service.

Decent little hotel in Kyoto Station area
Rooms was small but efficient. We had to lay our suitcases on the bed to open them, and passing one another in the room was tricky, but I guess that is to be expected in Japan with many hotels. Overall the room and hotel itself was very clean. The staff was nice and spoke English, so check in was super easy. The location in Kyoto made it extremely easy to get around for sightseeing and there are a ton of food options nearby!

Rugby World Cup stay
Great location, right next to Kyoto Station and reasonable rate to base yourself here and explore Kyoto, or make day trips to Kobe or Osaka.
Mark, us1 night trip
Good 6.0
Convenient, low cost, "cozy"
Our son-in-law booked this hotel for it's convenience to the train station and the price. It was good for these reasons, but we were not prepared for the tiny size of the rooms! Good thing most of our time was out exploring the sites. One good thing is that you could connect your iPhone to the TV and watch movies from your phone on the large screen.
