Very basic hotel. Old and musky. First room heater wasn't working so they shifted us to another room. Big regret because its even smaller and the window faces the wall. WiFi is almost non-existent. Toilet was super small. I could not even stretch my arms out sideways (and I'm only 5 feet). Half the basin cuts into the bathtub which made the bathtub even smaller. Only a few channels on the TV and its all in Japanese.
Only plus is the location. Perfect for shopping, sightseeing, eating, etc. There is the covered Teramachi Street just about 50 meters away from the entrance. The happening Kawaramachi Street is just down the road. Its just a short walk across the bridge to Gion area. You'll get eateries and 24 stores just around the corner. Oh, its hard to find the hotel at first. Look for the 7-11 store and its directly behind it.
Stay here only if you plan to be out of the hotel most of the time.
