Solid hotel for vacation or business. Convenient shuttle to / from train station. Gym is small and is poor relative to western standards.

京都駅からの送り迎えありありがたい。ロケーションも便利です。価格も早割でしたが、十分安いと思われます。サービスもいたって親切で、いうことなし。バーを利用しましたが、なかなか心地よかったです。部屋は値段としては十分。セミダブルが二人にはやや窮屈でしたが、値段からすると、贅沢は言えないか。よかったです。

We were treated like family

Posted Jan 23, 2015
Pros: Employees, service, food, atmosphere.
Location: Kyoto station is very close. We visited the Manga museum, the Gion district to see the Geisha and some temples, the Nishiki Market.
My daughter and I stayed here for 5 nights and were so impressed! The employees are amazing! My daughter has food allergies and despite language barriers the manager took incredible care of all her meals, making sure she had safe and wonderful tasting food! The other staff were wonderful, the servers, the bartender and the concierge who helped us out every morning to plan our day and figure out how to get around. Kyoto is quite a marvelous place, I will definitely go back! The location of the hotel is very central and easy to get to the major attractions while being close to the station. Our rooms were nice, small by N. American standards, but fine for us. The hotel has this underground spring water tapped into, so your skin and hair are super nice, I really miss that water! There are good restaurants and a great bar. Be sure not to miss the Japanese cuisine restaurant, apparently not a lot of Westerners go there, but you must! It has fabulous Japanese food, and if you are in Japan, well, of course you must eat Japanese style food! Extremely tasty, and super presentation, and wonderful servers. We enjoyed our stay so much, we were actually teary eyed when we left! We are Facebook friends with a couple of the employees now - how often do you connect like that with a hotel! If I could rate it 10 out of 5 I would!

Nice looking facility, very, very friendly and helpful staff. Don't miss the free shuttle which picks up from the hachijo exit of the station near the McDonalds.

急がない人向けのとても快適なホテル

Posted Jan 4, 2015
Pros: すべてにゆったりとした雰囲気
Location: 繁華街から少し距離があり,立地条件としては少しだけ不便です.
とてもゆったりとした空間があって,スタッフも親切です.とても快適なホテルです.でも,場所が繁華街から離れています.バスの便も中心部とくらべると少ないです.このため,いろいろ見て回りたい人には,少し不便だと思います.でも,ゆったり急がない旅行者には快適だと思いました.

The shuttle bus service is very helpful.

The hotel surrounding is quite quiet but the shuttle bus can ring us to down town within 5 minutes, convenient.

Friendly and nice

Location: very close to the train station. Hotel has shuttle bus to train station as well. Clean and comfort: very clean. Also the overall style is Japanese style. Love it. Service: Front desk was amazing. Super friendly and patient. Because I didn't do too much planning for my trip, they helped me figure out what to do for my short stay.

Convenient shuttle service every 15 minutes to the station, but not a very convenient location, except there is a Royal Host across the street which is great for breakfast and much cheaper than the hotel buffet. Lobby was beautiful, but the rooms were a bit too warm and smelled of stale smoke.

Shutter bus to Kyoto station is a very good option, but stop too early at around 20:30 only.
