Friendly hotel but not for tourists
Staff were welcoming and eager to please. However this hotel is not geared up for tourists. There are no instructions for TV or any gadgets in English and, as this is a love hotel, you're wary of touching anything for fear of what you may be buying! There was also a vending machine in the room with no explanation as to the contents. The hotel needs to decide who they want to cater for and set up accordingly. Free breakfast is provided which is brought to your room. The 24 hour "mood music" and screens advertising the various rooms are too loud when your room is directly off the reception area.
Pros: The staff are all welcoming and always ready to help. The price is competitive if you're on a budget and rooms are a good size.
Cons: The "mood" music playing 24 hours a day is too loud if your room is off the reception area as ours was. Also the bed was very hard.
Location: It is in a quiet location with only similar type hotels nearby. It is a 10/15 min walk to the station and a further 10 min journey to central Kyoto.
