Convenient Location, Clean Rooms, Hot Public Baths
Our stay at Hotel Sanoya in Kyoto was very enjoyable. The hotel is conveniently located close to Kyoto Station and the staff was extremely helpful, professional and friendly. The rooms are Japanese style with tatami and futons, which is exactly how I like it. The rooms were very clean and I did NOT detect any cigarette smoke smell (which can be a consideration in Japanese hotels). The public bath was spacious and hot, though our room also had a private bath tub/shower as well. As a tip, Kyoto Station is big, so in order to find the most convenient exit, head towards the "Porta" section of the station head out Exit A5 and turn left before crossing the street. The hotel is right there! Alternatively, if you want to hit up a combini, Exit A3 takes you out right next to FamilyMart and you just cross the street (with Kyoto tower on your left) afterward to get to the hotel.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Outdated, smelly, bad futons
Was very disappointed that the mattress was uncomfortable to sleep on. The pillow was small and flat. Didn’t like the open area in lobby for smoking, it made the whole lobby smell!! We got the room with shower and bathroom which was a good idea but it room was outdated and shower and toilet was in different corner of the room. The doors and floor are so thin that we could hear everything around us!
