Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Located close to the main Kyoto train station. Rooms are teeny tiny, almost half of the area is taken up by a wide entrance and three-way bathroom with Japanese style bath/shower. Interesting to experience but a small walk-in shower and more space the sleeping/living area would suit us better. Hospitality tray, safe, frig, TV with Japanese channels, dehumidifier and oh so many unnecessary decorative items and “loan” clothing occupying much of the limited room space.
Microwaves, ironing facilities and vending machines are located on each floor and one washer/dryer, needing 100Y coins, is located on floor 5. Dryer was heating but not drying clothes.
Buffet breakfast was OK, no fresh fruit or steamed veg, which were available in our other hotels. It included a bento box, numerous tiny, tasty dishes beautifully arranged but not typical Western breakfast fare.
Cannot comment on value for money because our visit was part of an all inclusive tour.

The location of this hotel is very close to Kyoto train station
Not a lot going on around the hotel but things like bars and restaurants are a short walk away.
The rooms are small but very comfortable and the shower and bath cubicle is a great idea for space. The toilet has its own separate door which is great for privacy
The hotel has free coffee, tea and soft drinks available all day from machines. The coffee is ground from beans.
Breakfast was good but gets very busy. We had to sit in the lounge area as there were no free tables.
They have good facilities, washing/drying machines and irons & ironing boards on each floor.
There is also a very nice onsen
The time left on washing machines can be viewed from your tv which is a brilliant idea. It also estimates how busy the onsen and restaurant is.
This was a great leisure hotel
All staff were very friendly and helpful
I didn’t give it 5 stars purely down to how busy the breakfast service was.

Great location, close to the Kyoto JR train station. The rooms were spacious. It was on the darker side, but I like it. It gave a tradition touch to it. I love how the bathroom were pocket doors. The toilet was separate from the bathtub so two people can use it at the same time. I recommend washing your clothes at the hotel, but air drying it in your room or taking it to the drying machine which was right across the streets. When I told the front desk the dryers don’t work, they only said the dryers don’t work. There are restaurants near by and convenient stores near by. Very quite street. They don’t really offer much free service at this hotel. They do offer lockers room downstairs at the front entrance.

Visited Kyoto end of February and I can say it was cold, specially during rainy days, better to have a proper jacket, boots and scarf.
The hotel is located just next to the main Kyoto station, 3-5 min walking distance, there are two big shopping centers, 5-15 min walking distance.
The hotel is nice and modern, I love the big bathtub in the room, pajamas and other toiletries are provided. There is microwave, iron, vending and washing machine in the hotel.
Indoor Onsen is nice but always crowded even if you come at midnight. The only thing disappointed me is a breakfast. I would expect to have at least a toast bread, cheez, turkey, oats, fresh fruits, or simply boiled or scrambled eggs but instead it was Japanese style breakfast like miso soup, rise, some other undiscovered food in the boxes.

Lovely, modern boutique hotel located a short 10 min walk from the Kyoto station. The hotel is easy to find and is about a 5 min walk to the subway system.

The rooms are average sized but fitted well (with decent sized bathrooms).

The staff are courteous and friendly. Complementary soft drinks and coffee (expresso based) were offered from 10-5 when we were staying there

Great stay

Excellent location, Very close and walkable to Kyoto Station. New and clean, good AC. Its a good option if you want to be near Kyoto station. No complaints about the hotel or rooms, I just felt the front desk staff could be friendlier and more helpful. They are not rude, maybe a language barrier?? Felt like I was intruding into their work.
It seemed like not too many people ate at the restaurent for dinner, breakfast was busy. could have more local japanese foods on the dinner menu.

Lovely hotel with helpful, friendly staff. My room was quite small, but perfect, with lovely ornaments on the shelves. I was with a tour and it was my birthday while I was in Japan so the hotel gave me a beautifully wrapped cake and a little card wishing me Happy Birthday. What a delightful surprise!

We stayed here recently on a trip to Kyoto. It was just a few blocks south of the train station so it was a perfect place to stay. It is a beautiful, modern hotel. Our room was 2 double beds, large modern bathroom with shower and bath tub. The room had a view overlooking the street. The room was quiet and comfortable. The beds and linens were excellent. There is an Onsen/spa in the hotel for no additional fee. It was wonderful to get a great nights sleep and then head back to the train each day for our next adventure in Kyoto.

Two blocks from Kyoto Station, it is a 7 floor modern style Japanese style hotel. The rooms are small and clean with mini fridge . Bed was softer than most of the hotels we stayed in. Bath is a personal onsen bathtub, but it is unfamiliar to most Americans so I would have preferred a regular shower. Staff know some basic hotel English. They are very welcoming. Has a large breakfast buffet. Has storage lockers for hotel guests to travel around town without having to rent a locker at the station.

Reading previous responses was expecting a small room. To our pleasant surprise we were able to open both our suitcases in the room. Layout of room was good and modern and everything worked. Found the check in staff friendly and helpful. Didn’t have breakfast or use any of their facilities

How do I get to your hotel from Kansai International Airport?
Answer from Sylvia L
New York City, New York67 contributions65 helpful votes
You can google your path as there are a few options, but below is the fastest: From Kansai-Airport Station (there should be a train symbol to get you to the central location) - Via JR HARUKAHaruka 58 Limited ExpressKyoto (50 min) Take to: Shin-Osaka Station - walk about 2 min and from Shin-Osaka Station take to Kyoto Station. You are about 6 min walk from the hotel from this station. You'll want to get to Kyoto Station as your final destination since this is the closest train station to this hotel. Highly recommend using the train as it is the fastest and most affordable way to get around in Japan.
