I stayed here as part of an Interpid trip and didn't find it particularly good. Positives are the location, it is very close to major shops and the Pontocho restaurant area. Bus No 5 from the Kawaramachi Sanjo stop, just infront of the hotel is very useful and you can buy one day bus passes from reception at 500Y. The rooms were small, bathrooms absolutely tiny with not much headroom. Annoyingly a number of websites are blocked from the internet in the lobby, notably facebook and other email services. I found the staff quite abrupt, verging on rude at times.
