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.

I was having trouble finding a bank that would accept my Canadian banking card. I was not staying at the hotel at the time, but the front desk staff was happy to help me out. They used their lobby computer and researched Plus System locations in Japan. Seven Eleven was the place. The manager had the younger staff member walk 2 blocks with me to the closest location to confirm that it would work. Success! After I inserted the card into the machine an English button appeared and I received my cash. The service was above and beyond. Thanks,

Again I had difficulty in finding the hotel, not their fault but with no smart phone will cause problems. A very efficient hotel, you pay the computer. Around a 15 min walk from Kyoto train station, not far from the major attractions of Kyoto when you get to know where you are. Rooms very nice.Breakfasts are a bit of a let down, taken next door in a Komeda coffee house. Apart from that.

This is a small, chic hotel located between Shijo Station and Gojo Station on the subway.

The room is equipped with a 140cm wide double bed. The desk is small.

The room is cleaned well, and although the room is small, the building is quiet and comfortable.

Unfortunately, there is only one elevator, but we didn't have to wait long.

Also, for some reason, there were no foreign tourists.

The fourth floor is the only smoking floor, and all other floors are non-smoking.

Payment is required at check-in.

There are vending machines and an ice machine at the front desk.

Komeda Coffee is located next to the front desk and is open from 7:30am to 10pm.

Also, about 50 meters to the right of the hotel (towards Shijo Station), there is a coffee shop called "Takagi Coffee Shop" that serves breakfast sets from 7am.

I recommend the "Rich Morning Set," which is a bit pricey, but offers a hearty breakfast of coffee (hot or iced), thick-sliced toast, sausages, scrambled eggs, and potato salad. (900 yen)
However, smoking is permitted at all seats, so it may not be suitable for those who dislike the smell of cigarettes. Please note that it closes at 6pm.

There is a convenience store across the main street, and you can walk to Kyoto Station, so it is very worthwhile. The front desk staff are also very helpful.

Is there a coin laundry in the hotel or nearby?
Answer from GrahamGrape

I am afraid I did not notice one. However they were very good on reception so they will answer your questions willingly. Overall I thought the hotel was OK. I must admit I did have trouble finding the hotel but I had this difficulty on all of my hotels while visiting Japan. I did not have a smart phone. Everyone uses them to find out where they are going. I could find no English signs easily. Hope this helps although I have not answered your query.
