It's very close to NIjo castel (5 min) as well as the center of the city (25 min) walk. They also have a free parking space which is really great

Great hotel near Nijo Castle

Posted Dec 10, 2013
Pros: Friendly staff, clean room, good breakfast.
Cons: Room a little dated. Very clean, but shows signs of wear.
Location: Great locaton close to Tozai Subwai and Nijo Castle.
We stayed 1 night at Horikawa Inn for an overnight visit from Osaka. Hotel was located 1.5 blocks from the Tozai Subway Line (Nijojo Mae Station). 2 blocks from Nijo Castle and a lot of small shops and restaurants nearby. Overall a great value and a good free breakfast.

Hotel staff are very nice and try hard to help and we can get what we were asking although English is not good enough What they should have let people know is that there is a #9 bus directly come from the train station have a stop right in front of their door (220yen/person). We found it on the way out but had to walk > 10minutes from subway station (210yen/person)with map when we went in.

Conveniently located, clean place and staff very helpful despite their poor English, we succeeded in communicating with the help of my iPhone translation app. Very small room but very clean as it is standard in Japan.
