Over 1 hour by bus and rail into Kyoto Station. Posted 14-Apr-2014
The room is huge but is a difficult location for touring Kyoto because of the distance. This is a "love" hotel meant for couples so dont be surprised at the items available for purchase. Otherwise this is not your typical closet size room. The room could use better cleaning particularly of the walls and the cover under the matress was stained and gross. The woman who checked me in spoke English and was very helpful but after that evening none of the staff spoke any english. If you do stay here, take the Hibaya line from Kyoto station and get off at Katata. Then take bus 86 at stall 2. This is the tricky part bc the bus does not always have 86 out front. Check at stall 2 for 86's schedule and doubke check by asking if bus goes to Moriyama (which is location of hotel). Get off at 1st bus stop over the bridge. Beforw you go get a map from hotel for walk from here. Or it is about a $20 taxi fare from Katata Station.
