Old hotel near JR Kyoto
Posted Apr 1, 2017
This hotel is located around 450m from JR Kyoto. It is directly opposite the JR's exit. However, as there isn't a direct traffic light from the exit to the hotel, you'll need to take a longer route to reach. Also, you'll need to take note of where you exit. The exit at Isetan is where you'll wanna be. If you were to exit at the other end, near the shopping stretch, you'll need to walk back to the JR and get back to the Isetan exit. The reason being, there isn't any traffic light for you to uturn to the other exit as it is blocked by the JR & Shinkansen track.
It is an old hotel. The lifts are small, the rooms are small, and very dated, so do keep the expectations low. The window is small as well so there's not much ventilation.
Staff are generally friendly.
