“Excellent Location, Stylish Hotel”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

After our compact Tokyo room, we really liked all the open space in our room here. It was booked through our tour, so I didn't do much research, and boy, were we pleased. Directly across from Kyoto station, you can't beat the location. Be sure to get to the other side of Kyoto Station. There is lots more than what you see going from the train to the hotel. We discovered it too late to explore it fully.

The only negative was the bed: it was too hard for my taste, but my husband had no problems with it. We only stayed one night.

As part of a two day tour I elected to upgrade my digs and was placed here. The hotel is a 70s design with an early 00s make up over that doesn't quite work but was clean and room huge compared to others I've stayed in Japan but who needs a huge room? Beds hard that's ok by me but pillows were like those used stop drafts under doors: horrible. One steps up into a bathroom chamber but water pressure excellent. Checkin & out smooth lovely people & able to leave my bag there till 6pm whilst undertaking a day tour. Had breakfast in western cafe as after 8 days in Japan I was over noodles & rice; it was ok esp for meat eaters. The staff in here were lovely esp the fellow topping up coffee. Very close to station which I could here at night but not sleep disturbing that was the cicadas job. Free wifi great strength but as an upgrade election I was a little disappointed as it seemed standard to me.

It is conveniently located next to Kyoto Station. Just a walk across. Plenty of restaurants and convenient stores all walking distance. It was an okay hotel. Lobby is a bit busy and crowded, hallway on the 10th floor was hot, feels like no A/C. Bed was very hard and uncomfortable. I had a great view of Kyoto Station from my room (151). Staff are very helpful. It is an okay hotel.

Room Tip: Kyoto Station side has a good view.

The hotel gets 1 star for the location! Because it was very convenient only 5 minutes from the train station - and so easy to go everywhere!

However besides that we had a really bad experience at the hotel. The service in the reception was not very good. The noise at the hotel are very loud and you can hear the trains from the train station if you have one of the rooms turning that way.

The beds however were the worse we have ever experience. They were so hard - it almost would have been more comfortable to sleep directly on the floor. We asked for more blankets in order to try to sleep a bit softer - but still after than it was so hard. So we did not get much sleep for the 3 nights we were there.

The location is very nice and simple to get to, it is right across the street from the station. As soon as you walk through the doors you are greeted by a staff member, the entire staff seem to have a good understanding and capability to speak English. The station across the way has lots of places to grab a bite and then the city is so welcoming that you just can't wait to walk around and explore. This hotel was great, the room size was large. The bed is hard (like almost all mattresses in Japan) and in the closet there are western style pillows! We would definitely stay again.

This was one of the best hotels we stayed in whilst touring around Japan. Across the road from the main train station so easy to get to if traveling by train. We picked up a car from Kyoto for remainder of our visit to Japan, which as also based across the road at the station. Room was great not small. Would recommend for a few nights stay. We were lucky that the Kyoto Gion Matsuri started the day we arrived, so we ended up walking around the streets most of the evening enjoying the entertainment and food stalls.

Room Tip: All smoking rooms are twin, there are no doubles.
