Despite the large size of the hotel,it is very well run,from check in to room cleanliness and hospitality.
It is adjacent to the main railway station in Kyoto..perfect!
Food shops,eateries and shopping all close by.Well connected to all forms of public transportation.
In short,this one comes highly recommended!

We booked a refurbished room in this hotel to be close to Kyoto Station for Side-Trips (Nara, Himeji, Osaka) and to reach Fushimi-Inari (We went to a Ryokan after to explore Kyoto). For what we we wanted, it was great because the location is really amazing (100 meters from Central Entrance). Hotel was better than I expected. I took a room on a refurbished suite so it didn't seem old (We saw the non-renovated an they look dated). Price and size of the room were very good. Staff tries to help a lot (helped us reserve a restaurant and directed us to a laundromat nearby) but the language barrier was comical at time (they keep smiling when they understand our question like in other places in Japan).

Very happy with this hotel, room was nicely decorated and plenty of space, curtains were excellent and completely blocked outside light even in the day you could make the room dark. Efficient room layout. Bed was soft and comfortable. Buffet breakfast was great, and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Having a Lawsons right next door was extremely handy as well. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and felt at home immediately. If I'm ever back in Kyoto I would stay here again.

A lovely ryokan! The baths were gorgeous, the rooms were large and comfortable. They had real mattresses instead of roll-out futons. The breakfast was very good and the amount of food was generous. Highly recommend.

The second-largest terminal in Japan and one of the most modern buildings in Kyoto, the station houses a shopping mall, movie theater, hotel, and department store. Centrally located, Kyoto station is close to the business district and just 2 km away from the Kyoto National Museum and the Sanjusangen-do temple. Just 6 blocks to the west at the To-ji temple stands the tallest wooden pagoda in Japan.
