The best location! All the hotel staff was very professional and helpful. The hotel shop showcases nice selections of Kyoto souvenir. The room I stayed was spacious and clean. The bathroom was great for Japanese style bathing. The only drawback was the noise level --some kind of mechanic\door closing sounds. Over all, the hotel is one of the bests for real people who love to visit Kyoto repeatedly.

The location was great,right across the street from the palace and only a short walk from the subway. The staff was courteous and friendly. The people at the front desk spoke English and were helpful. As a budget conscious traveler the price was excellent and the room was the best by far of the hotels I have stayed at so far on my month long trek across Japan(I am in my thirties and by no means a hostel backpacker.)
The short - Stay here if you are in Kyoto for a few days.
The Medium - I wound up on business travel in Japan and took a few days to see the country. I was looking for a base from which to walk around the city and this fit the bill. It is very close to the train station (I would recommend a cab if you have baggage) and I spent an evening and an entire day walking around Kyoto. I walk a lot...so a a hefty jaunt is not a big deal...and I walked about 15 miles while I was there...and saw a tremendous amount. If you want to see more, use the buses and cabs (though it gets a bit pricey). The hotel was perfect for what I needed, it was clean, convenient, comfortable, and in a part of the city that felt entirely safe.
we stayed 3 nights at this Hotel, The location was perfect right across from the train station and bus stop. Restaurants close by.
The room was very small but ok for 3 nights. The room was very clean and quiet.
the only negative was the staff wasn't as friendly as at the other hotels we stayed at in Japan. with the exception of the cleaners who said hello every morning with a smile.
But overall a pleasant stay.
My daughter and I stayed here for just two nights. Excellent location, just minutes away from the metro, shopping, and surrounded by good restaurants. We had a spacious room on the eighth floor, two double beds. The room was immaculate and had all the travel amenities you needed.
First of all, i hardly give hotel a review, but for one, I have to give some good feedback as it deserves.
Point 1) Very friendly staffs no matter what time you approach them and ask for information about Kyoto and help. Including early in the morning for breakfast or late even for their compliment supple.
Point 2) Hotel location is really convenient, so close to the train exit when we came from Osaka with 2 big 2 small luggages. (we took little time to find it as it entrance is in small alley) close to Gion, shopping street malls, bus stops.
Point 3) Interior design is modern while blending the traditional japanese artworks. In room facilities are very user friendly, good lighting design for your comfort, free movies on TV(in Aus is paid), amazed fancy shower set plus massage function, quite top range japanese toilet seat( heated, spray, blow dry, music), Humidifier plus Air-purifier(yes important is Kyoto is dry).
P.S. every room even equipped a Latest panasonic top range hair dryer (16,000 yen) which only is only sold in Japan. we just love it so much.
The room is decent size, but very spacious, but i believe they do their best to provide a pleasant staying time for all visitors. at least we really enjoy our time in there.
