convenient location

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: Location and proximity to cafe (Starbucks).
Cons: A concierge to assist travelers/tourists in finding tours or the best way of getting around the city.
Location: Location is very convenient as the hotel is centrally located with very close proximity to a subway station.
The location of the hotel is very convenient as it's about 100 ft. from an entrance to a subway station, with the subway station itself only about a block or so away. There is also a Starbucks attached to the hotel. There is no concierge to help with directions, activities, or such, but the bellman was extremely helpful in assisting me in finding several local places. No free WiFi except in lobby of hotel but free internet via ethernet connection in the rooms. The room was typical Japanese style with a very small bathroom.

Convenient Clean Compact

Posted Aug 17, 2014
Pros: All we need in good price.
Cons: Wifi is only lobby area now. It's better if available in the room.
Location: Very close to "Karasuma Shijo" station. Very easy to reach out to any place in a Kyoto.
I needed a hotel to stay a night after party in Kyoto for myself. So I didn't need luxury hotel but I didn't want sleep in dom either. This hotel was perfectly in the convenient location. Room was very small but very clean and well equipped with good price as we see " business hotel " in Japan. Japanese style full breakfast also nice and Starbucks and other bakery stores located inside hotel. All hotel staf are very friendly and professional.

Clean hotel close to subway and main downtown area

Posted Aug 2, 2014
Quiet, clean. No wifi in the rooms and even connection in lobby was unstable. Starbucks on ground floor. Rooms are small but comfortable, wouldn't want more than 1 suitcase.

Excellent Location

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Location
Location: Karasuma, Shijo, Kawaramachi. This is it. Central to everything.
I stay @ this hotel often. Typically as a bridge between accessing longer-term lodging. It's location is central to all shopping, transportation, etc. Karasuma Dori is one of the main North-South streets in Kyoto. Kyoto Station (Eki) is on Karasuma, south of the hotel, making it quite easy by taxi, or, by foot to access the hotel. The breakfast area is spectacular. This hotel is an excellent value.

Good central location and close to metro

Posted Jun 11, 2014
Pros: Location and room rate
Cons: Cleaner and non smoking to be enforced
Location: All of Kyoto within easy reach!!
I stayed here a year ago. I remember that the concierge advice was very good then but this time there was no one to ask for advice. The corridors and rooms smelled of cigarette smoke that was discomforting. Minimum complimentaries but very cheap room rate when booked through Expedia.

Hotel rooms were big and nice. Even though the staff was trying to be helpful, they seemed really clueless of the area and weren't that knowledgeable.

good hotel with convenient location

Posted Jun 4, 2014
Cons: Would be great if wireless internet is provided in-room instead of wired as many people will use it for phones/tablets.
Comfortable hotel with convenient location within 5 minutes of local subway station.
