Spent two nights in this hotel in a double room. Size is okay by japanese standard. Hotel looks new and room and toilet are superbly clean. For S$130 a night, I find it a good value.
To get to the hotel, get on the Karasuma line and alight at shijo station. Take exit 5 and turn left, hotel is 50 m away. The hotel is located one block from Shijo-dori - main shoping street in Kyoto. Gion is about 1.5 km away.
We had dinner at the hotel and I must say that the prices are resonable and food is decent.
Highly recommended property. Will definetely stay here again.
One negative point is that check in time is 2 pm and we were not allowed to check in when we arrived at 11am. It seems like this applies to all hotels in Japan. No early check is allowed.More
