Best location! Friendly staff. They also have rental umbrella which is free to rent. Just to make sure to bring it back to facility. It was so easy to get to hotel by bus.

No AC in winter, only heat. No windows. Really???

Pros: Location
Cons: Give your guests the option of having air condition or windows that open. Need ventilation!
Location: Shopping street and food is right around the corner so you'll always have something to do.
The actual hotel is decent but what killed it was the hotel doesn't have cold air conditioning during the winter. The rooms also do not have windows that open. Are you kidding me? I understand that it may be cold outside but there's absolutely no fresh air or ventilation other than heated air. I've never stayed in a hotel that didn't offer AC. When bringing it up to the staff, they simply asked me not to turn on the AC/heater if you want it to be cooler. The room I stayed in also had a very strong perfume or cologne odor from a previous guest. Absolutely do not recommend this hotel.

Close to covered bazaar and Starbucks.

Pros: Price and location.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
Location: Lots of food choices and shops. It's about a ten minute taxi drive from the station...around $7.00.
If you want to experience Japanese food and culture, this hotel is right in the mix. Right next to extensive covered bazaar with restaurants and shops. The restaurant attached to the hotel has a popular all-you-can-eat buffet, much of which is sourced from a local farm.

Unpretentious but offering everything you need, this smallish hotel stands out got its excellent staff and excellent location in the middle of the Downton shooting and market area of Kyoto. Many of the landmark tourist sites are within walking distance and the bar/restaurant areas of Portocho and Gion are nearby.

Pros: bed, bath room
Cons: Free cable TV
Location: Nishigi Maket, Gion
I don't want to recommend this hotel to anyone because I want to keep it as my secret, that 's joking. The hotel is almost perfect for me, located in center of everything; shopping, market, food, drink (but subway station pretty far). The hotel room is very comfort and staffs are very polite. Perfect for travelers who spend all day outside then come back in the night.
