The hotel is only a oneminute walk from Hankyu Shijo Omiya station, Randen Omiya station, and ten minutes by taxi from Kyoto staion. There are train stations and bus stops nearby, so it is easy to go sightseeing, eating out and shopping. You can get to Arashiyama that is famous for Bamboo forest and Togetsukyo-Bridge by Randen Omiya station. It is ten minutes' walk to Mibudera-Temple that assosiate with the Shinsengumi (the new squad of Samurai), and to the Nijo Castle that is the world heritage if you walk a little more. We selected a good quality bed and amenities such us towels and nightgowns to offer a comfortable stay for all guests. The bed named ""Maro"" is the original brand that was codeveloped with Simmons. You can experience such a comfortable sleep only in Hotel M's Plus Shijo Omiya. Shampoo, hair rinse and body wash are series of ""DHC olive gold""and these are popular for refreshing smell. Several types of tasty and freshly baked breads are offerd for free every morning. Good break fast gives you energy for a biginning of the day. ※From October 2018, Kyoto City has made it mandatory for guests staying at hotels in Kyoto City to pay an "Accommodation Tax". Please note that the tax is paid separately upon check-in. (Per person per night, less than 20,000 yen: 200 yen, 20,000 to 50,000 yen: 500 yen, 50,000 yen or more: 1,000 yen)

No doubt the room may be compact but everything is neatly in placed with image lablled that we know where each thing is returned to after use to avoid cluttering.

Some may find the room small but I am fine with it.

It is easier to access this hotel by bus from Kyoto Station instead of using the trains as we need to change 2 lines that are using differet stations. Despite we don't need to get out of the stations, use the undergrounds but both lines are not located that near, quite a distance especially when we are arriving with luggage and having to look for the lifts and escalators including the nearest exit etc.

I find using the bus was more convenient as there are bus stops located just at the jtraffic lights junction adjacent to the hotel, and that's what I did after I checked-out heading back to Kyoto Station, ane even cheaper Yen 220 instead of both train lines ticket cost combined, Yen 350 (if I recall correctly).

Had only taken videos that I cannot attached them here ...

Nice and comfortable room, the bathroom was clean.
We liked the location, there are many buses that stop nearby so it's very easy to get anywhere. Direct bus to Kyoto Station. We also walked to Pontocho twice, and it's a nice walk.
Staff was friendly, we were allowed to leave our luggage after check-out.

Hotel M plus Shijo Omiya located only 2-3 minutes from Randen Train station which direct you to Arashiyama only 25 minutes. Also easy to board buses to Shijo Kawaramachi which is Kyoto’s shopping street. We stayed only 1 night for our Arashiyama and Sakura at night at Maruyama koen next to Yakasa Shrine. Staff are nice and speak English, room’s in good design and clean.

I stayed here for 8 nights in November. I booked it because of the location...central, but not in a noisy area. The hotel is across the road from the Randen Omiya Station (for Arashiyama) and also across the road from Shijo Omiya station. It's on many bus routes too. It's a 6/7 minute taxi from Kyoto station or if you time it right, a 15 min bus ride.

I received a warm welcome when I arrived and every time I went in or out during my stay. That was nice.

My room was expectedly small, but had everything I needed. The bed was comfortable and the room had a window I could open (hate staying in hotels where I can't have fresh air). The only thing that let it down was the cleanliness of the room...it was dusty when I arrived and this wasn't dealt with at all during my stay.

The hotel offers a free breakfast of coffee and pastries, but I didn't have it once during my stay as it finished before I was up and dressed. It would be good if it finished at 10.

I would stay here again.

I visited Kyoto and have chosen this hotel as it was not too far from Gyon.

Check in was spotless, reception staff was friendly and nice especially one guy dressed with the black jacket (i guess he was a trainee), he was very helpful when explaining the streets,busses to take.

Room was very clean, and small as for japanese standards, there were many accessories in the bathroom, the only problem was the noise of the heating in the night but then i found a way to turn it off for good, about the one in the bathroom i just closed the door :)

Breakfast considering the food cost they pay is a bit poor, it's not possible to have a breakfast like this when you know that majority of people come from different countries, you should at least to prepare a proper one, cannot be only croissants, because the price of the room is quite high for being a 3 star hotel so you would cover the food cost and gain as well if you add some more item..

Overall it's a good hotel, i don't put 5 star just because of the breakfast. Revenue manager knows what to do..i wouldn't give this suggestion if i wouldn't work on the same field :)

Thank you for everything and see you in the future!

The hotel as such and the location is OK. “Free breakfast” does not a mean a normal breakfast, it is a very simple breakfast, mainly bread and coffee. We had a bad experience at the hotel, all cash, at least 500 €, was stolen from our room when we had “breakfast”. We have contacted the hotel but they showed no interest in dealing with this issue.

This was a return visit; I'd previously stayed here a couple of years ago.

The only differences I noticed this stay were (a) that it was more expensive than previously (but this might also have something to do with my country's failing currency) and (b) that the check-in procedure is now semi-automated, something I've also noticed in other Kyoto hotels in this price range.

I liked the design of the room. It's big enough for a solo traveller, but couples would need to be well organised. It was great that I could use the laundry facilities supplied, too.

The hotel provides a couple of bottles of water in the fridge, and green tea and tea making facilities which I also used.

Staff are unfailingly polite and helpful and the place is kept clean.

There are two elevators which can get quite slow and crowded at breakfast time.
Breakfast in the ground floor dining area is still coffee, juice and 'bread' – for the most part, pastries which you serve yourself using disposable cardboard plates and cups. It would be great if the hotel did what a lot of Japanese hotels do and provided in addition something more substantial (eg, a boiled egg) because this is a seriously unbalanced meal – all fats, sugars and carbs. Weekday mornings I preferred to eat a light breakfast (coffee, toast and a boiled egg) at a local cafe (Hattory), but I had to put up with smokers. The M's Plus dining area is smoke free, as is the whole hotel.

Personally, I don't think the location is all that convenient but it suited my purposes (visiting family). This trip I again took a taxi from Kyoto station (about Y1100~1200), because it's easier when you're carrying bags, but it's also possible to go by bus: just get off at Shijo-Omiya, which will show up on the 'next stop' board inside the bus. I avoid catching the #206 bus from the station because it's difficult to know if that bus is going to Shijo-Omiya or from Shijo-Omiya (in which case you'll end up in the wrong place). The #26 bus is a much more reliable bet (from Kyoto station, it only goes towards Shijo-Omiya). You could also get to the hotel from Kyoto station by subway, but you'll need to change trains and pay two lots of fares.

This place is definitely on my list of preferred hotels next time I come to Kyoto.

The location was very convenient for my purposes, but after travelling for more than 24 hours, I was content to give the task of finding the hotel to the taxi driver, which for Y1070, he did. I had taken the precaution of finding the hotel’s address in Japanese so that the driver found it easier to find the place (it’s a relatively new hotel and he wasn’t immediately familiar with it).

There’s a subway with a station entrance close to the hotel but it isn’t all that useful (from Kyoto station, think two separate subway systems, a short walk from one subway station to the other and two seperate train fares, one for each subway system). There’s also a bus (#206) which took me back to Kyoto station when I checked out of the hotel — it leaves from the bus stop near the “Hattory” cafe — turn left when you walk out of the hotel, walk to the five way intersection (it’s a very short walk), and you’ll see the cafe and the bus stop diagonally opposite. There is a closer #206 bus stop, but it’s going in a different direction — make sure you catch the #206 with Kytoto Station on its destination board.

July is not a peak time of year, and I had booked through Expedia at a sensational rate (around $US50 per night for bed and breakfast). The hotel opened earlier this year; its decor seems typical of contemporary hotel design in Japan, understated for the most part, although not everyone would agree with the use of industrial lamps to liven up the somewhat muted browns, charcoals, and greys.

Check in was polite and effortless and so was check-out, less than a minute.

The hotel wifi worked well but does not have password protection of any kind; I use a VPN; otherwise i might have been concerned about bank account details etc being hacked on what seems to be a totally open network.

In this price range I expected the room to be small and it was — think of it as a chance to appreciate Japanese design and how it’s able to put a lot of functionality into a very small space— a double bed against one wall, a well designed wall of cupboards containing all the normal hotel accoutrements — Kleenex, information, TV, hot water and tea making facilities, fridge (always silent), chair/desk, phone for calls within the hotel only, hairdryer, rubbish bin and power and USB outlets.

There was space enough for me to do my morning and evening qi gong exercises — my test of whether or not a hotel room is big enough. This one was — just. I was travelling alone — two people might find the room a bit more compressed than I did. Travel light, is my advice.

The room was very quiet, more or less sealed off from the surrounding environment. There was a window in my room behind the curtains, but it was frosted glass. I assume the view wasn’t all that great, but I would have appreciated being able to look out, if only to see what kind of day it was outside.

I found the double bed firm but comfortable, I personally like firm pillows (and these were very firm) and I slept well. Western style pyjamas (but one size fits all — if you’re Japanese) were supplied and were cool and comfortable despite the legs and arms being somewhat comical on my frame. Unlike one or two of the Japanese guests, I never wore the hotel provided pyjamas down to breakfast.

TV, air-con, shower/bath, absolutely silent mini-fridge, everything works perfectly just as you’d expect in a relatively new hotel.

The included breakfast in the dining/lounge area on level 1 might be tasty, but it's nearly 100% carbs, fats and sugars. The first day I had this breakfast — pastries for the most part, self-served on cardboard trays, passable coffee self-served from machines in cardboard cups — I walked out of the hotel with a leaden feeling in my stomach. The food doesn’t provide a great start to the day.

I can understand why the hotel has taken this approach — included breakfast ia a drawcard, and pastries allow for higher throughput, but a better breakfast experience could make the hotel experience so much more enjoyable (and valuable) for guests — it’s an opportunity the hotel has missed completely, in my opinion.

Would I stay at this place again? Yes, absolutely, but as always it depends on price. It was very conveniently located for my purposes, and — breakfast aside — was an enjoyable and comfortable experience.

We paid 191 Euros a night for this place. The room was tiny. The double bed was pushed against the wall so one person was trapped with no means of getting out of the bed. The small window was opaque and only opened a crack making the place hugely claustrophobic. The staff had no English and were not at all helpful. The breakfast room was tiny and far too small to accommodate the number of people being catered for. The cups and plates were disposable and coffee and small pastries were all that was offered. People were standing waiting for you to finish and it reminded me of a youth hostel. Outrageously expensive for what it was.

Hi, if you were to walk to the hotel it would be about 25/30 minutes, but there is a subway station 5minutes from hotel with a rail link to the bamboo forest across the road. If you download the Hyperdia app to your phone you can access all rail links and times to anywhere in Japan, also hire a roaming 4g WiFi unit as this will give you access goggle maps and all info in English as you travel, Y mobile is one that I used and you can get them in the airport and return there when you leave, which will give all the information you will need. Have a great trip.
