Kyoto Tower Annex was the first property we stayed in during our trip to Japan.
Our first impressions were good..a very friendly welcome with the staff speaking reasonably good English & a nice, well presented foyer.
As we expected, the room itself was quite small although we did need the rollaway bed so this made the problem even more apparent. The room was well maintained, clean & had a simple, slightly dated decor. There was basic tea making facilities, good quality bathroom products and linen & internet access if requested.
The bathroom was probably the biggest surprise...small is being generous! It is very similar to a prefabricated cruise ship bathroom, only even smaller. For three adults this was a challenge when it came time for dressing, but not impossible.
The position of the hotel, once we found it (after asking directions at the associated Kyoto Tower Hotel) was quite good..easy walking distance to the Kyoto JR Station & to the nearby hotels that organised tours were collected from.
We decided to use the onsite restaurant for breakfast as they offered a western alternative...not a huge selection for 1800yen but an easy way to start a full day of sightseeing.
On checkout, the staff willingly held our luggage for us until later in the day & helped us with directions & maps whenever requested.
This hotel turned out to be the most expensive of all those we stayed in during our trip ( though probably the most modest of them all) but Kyoto has a shortage of western style accommodation so this does reflect in the rates charged.
Overall we were happy with our two night stay at this property & would probably recommend it to friends if asked.
