Room was small.

We found the room reasonably comfortable but no cool airconditioning. They had heaters on. We had to turn it off and open the window for cool air. Unfortunately it was very noisy with the window open. Hotel should give some isntructions to people who are arriving by train as to where the hotel is situated and which exits to take. If we had known how to get to the hotel from the train station it would have been easy. We had to ask several people and not many people in Japan speak English. I was rather surprised. I thought it would have been more international and that nearly the world over, I have found people could reasonably communicate in English. But not in Japan. Overall the hotel was okay but too expensive for what they gave. For the price we paid which was approximately A$450 per night, we could have stayed in 5 star luxury in Sydney, Australia. We took a tour of Kyoto and was pleased with the tour.

Good location but valu for money, poor.

The room was very small for a twin room. Location was good. Staff were courteous and helpful. For the price we paid, in Sydney you would get a 5* hotel. Hotel prices in Kyoto are a bit of a rip off. Otherwise all ok. I would recommend to a friend if they can't find anything else.

Just across the underground subway station exit

We are generally pleased with our stay at the hotel except for the cleanliness of our room toilet. I had to clean off a brown stain at the bottom of the toilet seat cover before use when we first checked into our hotel room. The room size was good compared to most hotels in Japan. The location was great- near subway, eating places and shopping district, and within walking distance from many of Kyoto's places of interest.

Couple getaway

Spent four nights at this hotel from 4th December to 8th December 2014. Excellent location with particularly polite and attentive staff who took pains to answer all our queries and guide us to the many tourist attractions. Very well placed in terms of nearby restaurants and bakery. Overall, we would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kyoto.

Very nice location and helpful staff

We can go shopping and dining so easily with the perfect location of the hotel. Also, we can reach the bus stops and go everywhere for sightseeing within 5 mins on foot. The staff members speak pretty good English and helpful. I can manage to buy the bus pass there directly. I will recommend this hotel to my friends who wanna visit Kyoto.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Bus pass in Kyoto is a must for travel. You dont have to worry about paying extra money even you lost your way and the public transportation is so accessible.

Good value and pleasant stay

Location is good and convenient, near train stations and various bus stops. Close to Gion and eat and shopping places. Staff are friendly and able to communicate in English. Room is clean and tidy, although can hear some noise from the street. Hotel sells bus day pass and helps to reserve for restaurant dining. Most importantly, it's great value for money.
