So much unused potential
Hotel location is very central. Room extremely small and service is poor. No ice machine available. Soap dispenser in Launderette empty. We asked for two extra pillows and after waiting at reception for a while was issued with one. Breakfast only started at 7h30 and for a tourist with a busy schedule this is to late. We ask for earlier breakfast but it was declined. Breakfast self is very limited. We also ask for assistance with transfer of our luggage to next hotel but they was unable to even assist. All the other hotels visited in Japan supplied ice and luggage forwarding service. This hotel can be so much better.

Lovely Stay!!
Perfect location, quiet street within walking distance of many attractions. Staff very welcoming and helpful; Siwai went out of her way to provide us with information. Nice to have a light breakfast provided by the hotel before starting our day.

Awesome. Convenient. We extended several days.
Very pleasant. Quiet. Convenient to everything. Close to the center and good spot for all the buses passing down Kawaramachi. And buses going to most of the major tourist spots. Breakfast included was pleasant, and they weren’t reluctant to give that extra cup of coffee or coffee AND orange juice. Great service... the kind where you think they would go out of their way to keep guests happy, no matter what.
