Market conveniently nearby, as is laundromat and bus stops. You can keep costs manageable accordingly.

The hotel was good japanese style room withbed and tatami on floor. Nice view from the big window. But the only thing is that you need to take a bus ride for 15-20 minutes to reach the city center

Worn out hotel with lovely staff

Posted Nov 20, 2016 on Lastminute
I haven't had a bad customer service experience in Japan and this place was no exception with lovely, helpful staff with decent English. However the facilities themselves can best be described as depleted. The lobby itself looks inviting enough, and my first impression of the room was positive. However once I got to the bathroom the shine disappeared. It looks like it was built in the 80s and hasn't been renovated since. Cracked sinks, leaky taps, rusty fittings, worn out floors, battered toilet and altogether in desperate need of renovation. In the room itself the fixtures and fittings are newer than the bathroom by a perhaps a decade which still makes them old and overused. It was dirty, just aged. For the money you're better off elsewhere.

Disappointed

The wifi only works in the lobby. The free shuttle is only to the train station not the area attractions. The ad looks like beds bit its just futons

Nice location with pleasant staff and good price

Posted Oct 12, 2015
Pros: The location is very convenient to visit Gion and temples in the east area with walking distance to the Philosopher's path.
Cons: The bath room needs to be rid of molds and mildew.
Location: There are buses in front of the hotel which will take you to most of the temples and you can walk to the Philosopher's path and visit a lot of temples
It is easy to travel to see all the sights by bus #100, 203,204 and 5. The room is quite roomy and clean except the bath room. There are molds and mildews around the bath tub, on the wall and around the sink on the grout. The front desk staff offered another room, but we turned it down. It is too much trouble to move around.

Decent hotel with good location

Definitely needs some maintenance in areas but tatami style rooms are clean and charming. Breakfast buffet is good. Overall good value.
