Average hotel, horrible Wifi
Posted Sep 14, 2016
Hotel was recently remodeled, we stayed here as part of a promotion deal with our airline booking. Hotel is pretty comparable to other hotels for the price in pretty much every respect, except for their wifi. The wifi was horrible! We were unable to get a full signal connection inside the room with any of our devices including an ipad, android phone, and windows laptop. Once you left the room, the wireless dropped to almost zero. Inside the room, the connection wasn't enough to even stream facebook videos. It's enough to check email or other low bandwidth things, but not enough to support video. I didn't try voice.
Also the walls seem thin here despite the remodel. I was woken up quite a bit by our neighbors outside in the hall.
On the plus side, the staff is very gracious and accommodating, as you would expect at a hotel in Kyoto.
