Hotel a block away from the Kyoto Station.

Posted Jul 6, 2017
Super close to the main train station and central to all of Kyoto. Hotel is small but ok for two people. Would have liked storage for our luggage. Staff was very nice and accommodating.

Great Stay!

Posted Jun 24, 2017
Extremely close to kyoto station which is fantastic for day excursions to Arashiyama, Nara, etc. The best is sooooo comfy, like sleeping on a giant pillow. I really enjoyed the breakfast buffet, lots of options and great for starting a day of adventures. Could not recommend this place more! Loved my stay!

not much space

Posted Jun 12, 2017 on Hotels
The rooms are small and there is no place to put the luggage besides on the floor so with multiple people space is a premium

The hotel locates near the Main station of Kyoto, around 5-10mins walk, which is very convenient. There are some very good restaurants near the hotel and a convenience store right on the same street of the hotel. Although the room size is very small, it's clean and other advantages compensate that.

Room too small for 2 persons!

Posted May 22, 2017
Pros: Room is clean though small!
Cons: Staff does not speak good English! The size of the room should be used by one person only!
Location: Lots of good shopping and food, easily accessible to other places. Bus terminal is also nearby!
Other than the room being too small, the location is good and within walking distance to the rail station!
