“What a surprise!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

Love this hotel! Value for money (approximately USD 50 per room per night), the room is spacious (compared to Japanese standard), clean, comfortable bed and they provides free DHC facial cleanser powder, lotion at the check in counter. Free Lavazza coffee & green tea at the pantry, nice green & red tea in the room. 3 mins walk to the near by convenience store/mini market which sell local food, fresh fruits & vegetables. It might be difficult to locate the hotel at night as the sign is not big enough to be notice. Directly opposite Hotel Oaks Kyoto Shijo.

The rates for this hotel for a room with double bed was very affordable and on top of that, it was near the subway station with a direct train to Kyoto station. Service was great and there were cheap restaurants nearby for a late night snack. Wifi service however was quite inconsistent at times but it was not a huge concern for me. Overall, very happy with my stay at this hotel.

In our opinion convenient, nice, clean and centrally located hotel. I agree with some of you that a walk from Kyoto station is definitely 30 minutes with heavy backpacks but subway would be a quicker option. The hotel has as every Japanese hotel small rooms but with everything you might need present. There are also washing machines, a 7/11cash machine nearby, free matcha and coffee, staff who speak English and lovely restaurants near the hotel. Overall great base to explore a beautiful city like Kyoto.

What you need when you travel in Kyoto. We stay there for 5 nights. Great location, near buses, shops and restaurants around. The room is great, all you need. The stuff is excellent, helpful and know English. The only think to consider is breakfast. If you look for western breakfast, consider it.

Good location, shops, restaurants around the corners! Excellent beddings in room, stable wi-fi services. Front Desk Team is nice, good English, good Mandarin (can't imagine). Recommend if you don't mind take few stops from JR Kyoto Station. Will stay again, once we go Kyoto.

Visited 1st week of april for sakura. Got a triple room which had frosted windows and no view whatsoever. Beds and pillows are fine, room is vey clean. Location is not that convenient unless you like taking taxis. Karasuma station is a 10 minute walk. Free in-room wifi.

We visited Kyoto to watch the Spring Blossoms and stayed at this hotel the night of 5 April 2014. We paid 56,600Yen ($600) for the one night for 2 adults and 1 child (we were given a twin room with extra bed).
Firstly, this hotel stick strictly to the 2pm checkin policy with no flexility. Guests were piling up waiting for their rooms, at least they could held our luggage at the hotel while explored Kyoto.
The room was OK however there was a very bad smell.

Overall the hotel was average in falls into budget tourist category and not $600 per night range

Thank you for staying our hotel.

I think it a pity that we could not give you a comfortable stay.
Because of the Top seasons rate, the room charge is more expensive than the normal rate.
If we have a room that you can check-in before 2PM, ofcourse you can check-in early.
But at that time the day before was full booked and we did not have the room that you can check-in early.
We have flexible service in our mind. If you come to Japan again,please choose MYSTAYS.

Thank you
