This is a business type hotel so don't expect anything fancy. The room is small, enough space for a full size bed, a small desk, and a small bathroom. However, the bed was really comfortable, the room very clean, and the room has everything you needed (complimentary tea, tv, kettle, etc.). The location is good too, 10 minutes walking from the Inari JR station (two stations away from Kyoto station), so if you have the JR pass it is very convenient.
I'm giving it 4 stars because you can hear water running through pipes at night, but mostly, because of the terrible wifi they offer. It is slow, hard to connect to, and it keeps disconnecting. Very annoying, especially when everywhere in Japan you can find lighting fast internet!
Nevertheless, I would stay here again. Good price, location, and comfortable rooms.
