Cozy Japanese ApartmentPosted Apr 6, 2014
Pros: Loved the room! The bed was very comfy, there was wifi included, a small balcony to step out on for fresh air, and the air conditioner worked great!
Location: It's about a 25 minute walk to the nearest subway station (Kitaoji) and no where near a JR line. Either expect a 25 minute walk or use the local buses
Our stay here was very pleasant. The room was much bigger for the same price as the hotel we stayed at in Tokyo. The only problem we had was in originally getting into the hotel room. A note was left addressed to us in translated English on the front of the door instructing us as to how to contact the staff to be let in. They weren't there when we arrived, however, so we had to call them first. Once we were inside the hotel, we were pleasantly surprised at the size of the room and bed and by the all the amenities that were left in the room. There was wifi in the room as well as instructions in English as to how to connect to the wifi router. The area was very quiet and peaceful. Overall, great place to stay!

A good place to stay for a few daysPosted Jun 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
I had difficulty figuring out how to get in to the hotel at first. - You need to use the intercom for the room on the sixth floor. Other than this slight problem, the hotel was very good. The location is excellent if you're staying for a few days. From the station, you take the number 9 bus, and get off in Kami horikawa. The same bus in the opposite direction takes you straight back to the station. The hotel is in a decent location if you are in Kyoto for a bit of sightseeing. - Kinkaku-ji is only a twenty minute walk from the hotel, and there are several other temples and shrines also within walking distance. Cooking facilities are limited to a single microwave on each floor, but this was not an issue during my stay. However, were I to visit Kyoto again, I would likely choose a hotel a little closer to the center of Kyoto as the long bus ride back, whilst inexpensive, was one of the reasons I did not have time to see everything I wanted to during my stay.
