Fantastic Location
Within walking distance of a lot of things, clean, comfortable, and affordable
This hotel's location is its biggest selling point. It is near several train/subway stations making it very easy to get around Kyoto, but it is also within walking distances of many things too. A large shopping center filled with little shops, brand name stores, restaurants, drugstores, convenience stores and a grocery store is right across the street. You are also within walking distance of the Gion district and the restaurants in that area. We also walked to Heian-jingu and Nijo-jo. We also took a cab to the base of Kiyomizu and it only cost around 800 yen, but you can also get there using the subway system. The hotel itself is clean and quiet. The rooms were also really comfortable. The beds are also much more comfortable than other hotels I've stayed at in Japan. The staff was also very friendly and helpful when we needed it. My only complaint about this hotel is that there is no Wi-fi in the rooms. There is a lan connection in the rooms, and you can use wi-fi in the lobby so it was just a little inconvenient. Overall, it was a great hotel, and I would stay there again if I went to Kyoto.

Nice location
Location, near shopping places, can easily walk to major sights or quickly hop on a bus or the subway
Great location in Kyoto, very easy to get to the sights from via bus or subway, very helpful staff. You can buy the bus passes from the front desk and see all the major sights in one or two days!

Awesome Hotel with Great Location
Friendly Staff
Had a very helpful concierge and was able to walk to the subway station. Only about 2 minutes away was easy to travel to all the sightseeing places from the station. Lots of entertainment and shopping around as well.

Great location
English speaking staff and love the location
Easy access to travel alone without a guide. Family friendly. Friendly and helpful staff. location is the best, easy access to all the food/sites/shopping. Walking distance to many sites. Taxi fare is reasonable to places you wish to go if not wanting to take the bus.

Amazing hotel
great location and amazing staff
the ONLY thing I found negative with our stay here was the bed seemed a little too firm but besides that, everything was perfect
