A real hidden Gem

An economy hotel but excellent location (Gion), friendly staff and comfortable bed! Laundry room is available (coin operated) -very easy to use. The staff are friendly and helpful. The location is fantastic - walking distance to the train station and food area over the bridge. The room is small and cleaning is per request and the beds are very comfortable. Its clean and very practical. There are many places to eat and shop in the Gion area including all the tourist sites. Great hotel and a real hidden gem !

Like every Japan hotel, the rooms are small so we expected that. It is extremely hot outside so it does not help that there is no air conditioning in the hallways or elevator. The air conditioning in the room is not the greatest either. It is right above the bed and changes constantly making it either too cold or hot. The hotel room however is clean and staff are helpful
