“Luxurious 3-star hotel close to Kyoto station”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

The hotel surprised us with its luxurious rooms at very affordable prices (we paid about 50 euros for a single and 70 euros for a double) and about 300 m from Kyoto Station (next to a Lawson convenience store). Staff was friendly and efficient. The rooms were big and clean with comfortable and soft beds, and equipped with a cooker and fridge and slippers and bathrobes - all the necessities for a good stay after a tiring day..Bathrooms were also surprisingly big for a Japanese hotel. Couple of shopping centres just across the Kyoto Station mean one can shop and lug the bags back to the hotel without breaking one's back. Also check out the skyline and restaurants at the top of Kyoto Station.

Traveling for so many years, I was hesitating to book this hotel close to a metro station! Arriving in Kyoto by the Shinkansen and very glad that I booked this hotel just less than five minutes’ walk. The station is one of the country's largest buildings, incorporating a shopping mall, hotel, movie theater, Isetan department store, and several local government facilities under one 15-story roof. The city bus will bring you to all the tourist attractions stationary in front of the station marked by number, alphabet and destination. . The hotel providing breakfast if you wish, top roof free sauna, hot bath and all the facilities you need, the room was comfortable but adequate for space. The one negative was no TV in any foreign language- in Kyoto they should have this, I think. During the night, there is also free ramen to satisfy the hunger or a taster of local soup before going to sleep. You can also request for extra bottled water from the front desk if those 2 in the room is not enough. Access free Wi-Fi, breakfast where all kinds of high quality Japanese dishes and a bit of western dishes are offered. Staff spoke very well English and willing to help you in any way. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Free daily two bottles of water, coffee and tee available. Bath supplies available daily. Sorry I di...

I stayed here for two nights in June 2014. Great location, 2 minutes walk from Kyoto Station. Very nice room. Great spa, when you come back after a day's walk, the hotspring is a great relief. And they offer free ramen at night. Highly recommended.

This hotel is a short walk from Kyoto train station, making it the perfect base from which to explore Kyoto. A lot of Kyoto's sights are right on the edge of town, so being close to the transport 'hub' is great. Also fantastic if you're arriving in Kyoto by the shinkansen.

The rooms are small by Western standards, but fine by Japanese standards. They are clean and comfortable. They provide a great range of Japanese and Western foods at their breakfast buffet. Additionally, the hot springs on the top floor are free, and the perfect way to unwind after a long day of sightseeing.

For those wanting to go to the downtown area at night, the hotel is only two subway stops, or a short taxi ride away.

I traveled with a friend, but would have no problem traveling solo at this hotel. The staff were attentive and friendly.

Very close to the train station and to take the city bus (5 min walk). Good hotel. Although the room was not big (like it´s usual in japan), the bathroom was good and the shower was quite large. In general, i would recommed it

I have always like Dormy Inn hotel chains as despite small rooms, they are clean and equipped with onsen. I must say Dormy Inn Premium Kyoto Ekimae is one of the best I've come across as hotel is conveniently located near Kyoto station, serves a great breakfast selection and has a rooftop onsen. The hotel also provide 2 bottles of free mineral water each day.
