“Good place to stay, close to JR Kyoto”
Reviewed 26 November 2012

Like previous reviewer, did not have a resevervation and managed to book for two nights on the day. My room was close to the street so it was a bit noisy. Had most things provided but no soap or shampoo, just towels. Room was clean and spacious for a reasonable price, cable internet included. This hotel is a 5 min walk from JR Kyoto station which provides convienient travel to major attractions.

Reviewed 13 January 2012

We walked into this hotel having no reservation. It seemed to have the most reasonable prices for a double-bed room. I would say it was okay for what we paid. It felt like visiting grandparents - a guy at the reception was quite old and spoke no english but he was so helpful and so smart that we managed to communicate. He even made us tea while we were browsing internet at the reception area on a laptop borrowed from the hotel. They have this old-school spa type hot pool that feels like steam room and it is separate for ladies and men. The room was kind of old and i would normally not like it but it was very cozy in a way. other staff was helpful as well and very polite in a good old traditional japanese style. Not very close to action although close to many buses. It's a station area after all.
