4/5 Good

Disliked: Staff & service
Ok for the money
A well appointed and spacious hotel, but weirdly it has no staff on check-in. To make it more confusing, the check in machine was not working and I didn’t receive my email to tell me my room number before I arrived. Make sure you get that. Fortunately we bumped into the housekeeper who was cleaning our room, but if we hadn’t met him, I would have been worried. The hotel was reasonably clean - although the floor needed hoovering - and was in a good location. It was very cheap and a big room for the money. Easy to get around Kyoto on the JR lines from here, too.

5/5 Excellent

Spacious like a small apt.
Not fancy but very comfortable, perfect for us! The lobby is really small, but lots of information posted. This place is more for the self-sufficient type of people. We really enjoyed our stay here.

3/5 Okay

Good location but average
A lot of amenities weren’t available during our stay. Cold draft from window about the bed which made the room cold even with the heater on as there was no shade to cover it. Front desk only manned sometimes. Very noisy outside. Instructions to the hotel were sent in Japanese, requested English twice with no response, had to call on arrival to get directions. Heater worked well when we figured out how to use it, clear instructions aren’t given. No utensils apart from two bowls, two cups and chopsticks, nothing for foreigner visitors to use if they can’t use chopsticks. Pillows were very flat and uncomfortable for your neck and there weren’t any spares in the room. View from the balcony was pretty. Location is great as it’s only a few minutes walk from bus terminal and train station, restaurants are close as well as 7/11 and pharmacy. Our stay wasn’t terrible but wasn’t the greatest either. Wifi was easy to connect and was reliable.
