                9.6

                I liked the helpfulness and friendliness of the staff at the front desk-- they were great!

              • Group of friends
                8.8

                It was centrally located in Kyoto, so it was easy getting to Nijo-jo and the shopping area of Kawaramachi. It is very close to a couple of bus stops and reasonably close to the subway station, which is about 2 stops away from Kyoto Station. The hotel also felt very clean. Wifi was included.

                While I was expecting the beds to be hard, I was surprised by how hard they were. I could feel the springs in the mattress while I slept.

              • Couple
                7.8

                Good hotel in Kioto.

                Bed was not so good - on every move it was moving and shaking, felt like earthquaqe

              • Couple
                8.8

                Good position, just 10 min walking from pontocho and 2 stops from train station; staff very kind, as usual in japan; you can find the one day bus pass directly at the reception.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                The staff is extremely friendly and respectful and very competent.The room was very clean, the bathroom perfect, there were slippers, bathrobes etc.

              • Couple
                7.8

                The staff was very courteous and the stay was pleasant.

                The room was cold.

              • Couple
                8.2

                city center. 5 min to subway. The best option to our budget. accept luggage before check-in time (if you arrive early) and after your checkout.

                As one of the previous reviews mentioned, the bathroom smell mold. They did not let us check in early (11am) but they kindly accept our luggage until the check in time. The hotel does not have a English sign on the front door.

              • Couple
                8.2

                Very good price versus location, close to the food market and the shopping streets. Friendly english speaking staff.

                Old but clean rooms.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Very well located, easy access to night entertaiment as well as sightseeing highlights.

                Lack of guest computer with internet in the lobby.

                Location in the middle of everything. They also have rent a bike, so everything can be reached easily.

                The hotel is close to underground (4 minutes) and it has all the facilities you can expect (fridge, air conditioned, bath... Even tea). The staff is very gentle (they lent us an adaptor-plug and they prepared our room before the established time). Excellent.

                Good hotel. The design is from 70s with akward buttons but the rest was fine.

                We got so angry when looking for the hotel. Even though the indications how to find the hotel were clear and we actually passed right next to it and even looked in the lobby, we still didn't realise it was our hotel because its name in english is nowhere to be seen on the street level or on vertical banners, or inside the building. You have to actually look in the sky to see it's name at the very top of the hotel, which we didn because it is so stupid not to have any english name downstairs. Also don't go to their breakfast. It is mediocre and very expensive.

                Staffs are nice and helpful. The location is good and closed to many restaurants

                Air conditioning not working - it was so hot !
