The rooms were very pleasant. But if you are intending to explore Kyoto city it may be more worthwhile staying in Kyoto city as the 20-minute commute from Seta to Kyoto can be quite time consuming.

Great Value”
My friend and I walked from Tokyo to Kyoto and made our lodging reservations in advanced. This hotel was very conveniently located near a train station and many restaurants and convenience stores. The hotel's amenities included an unexpected massage machine and the view from the room was decent as well. Would recommend to others, especially for people trying to get the most for their buck (or yen).

pleasant stay ”
We stayed 6 nights from 29/5 to 4/6. We went out early n came back after 8pm mostly. So, i couldn't comment on the facilities as we didn't make use of it. The room was clean n comfortable during our stay. Not big but good enough for 3 pp. The hotel is just across Seta station and along the way, there are 2 convenience stores, Lawson n 7-11. Safe n quiet neighbourhood.

clean ans safe haven for solo female travellers”
It is literally just in front of Seta Station! I could get mentaiko pasta from 7-11 heated up and cheap, for dinner. The staff are very helpful and the room super clean!
It was a safe space for me. A solo female traveller (first time) to Japan. A little far from Kyoto Station expecially if you go Hiroshima or Kobe by shinkansen. Do check the last trains back to Seta. Otherwise everything else is perfect!

Wonderful Seta stay”
Price, staff courteousness and amazing and friendly staff at the dining facilities
It was a wonderful experience. Everybody was courteous, helpful and nice. Room and accommodation was great for the price but was actually more than I expected. Parking was cheap (around ¥900) and just across the building. It was discounted from the hotel. The breakfast ladies were awesome as well. They tended to us like they knew us. Price was cheap and discounted from the hotel. I highly recommend it even for family. Excellent experience.

Great location,and great staff.”
location ,staff,Kyoto
I stayed in more classey hotels in Japan but the Seta Urban is one of my favorites.I guess its because its out in the suburbs of Kyoto (which is a place I love) and you commute on the trains just like a local.I can't really put my finger on it but I really like this place.

Comfy hotel”
Clean, comfy and attentive staffs
This hotel is located at about 15 to 25 minutes of train rides (depending on what train you take) from Kyoto Station. It is situated at the side of Kyoto city, i believe). When you arrive at the Seta Station and prior to exiting the station, look at the see through glass (either left or right, i cant remember), you will see the signage of the hotel. If you exit at the wrong side, you will not find it. I am particularly happy with this hotel. Reason being, the screen of my Korean made phone went blank at one of the nights i was there. I was desperately looking for the phone service centre either in Kyoto or Tokyo. I searched the internet but I couldn't understand google in japanese. I seek for the staffs' assistance. They were kind enough to help me get the address and on the early morning i checked out, the receptionist passed me another few addresses with printouts of the map on where to go in order to fix my phone. Very attentive and kind of them to do so! I highly recommend this hotel if you are not minded of its distance from the main Kyoto station.

A Comfortable Stay”
nearby train station, self-laundry services and cleaness
Location of this hotel is bit off the city center of Kyoto, a driving distance of 20 km to Kyoto station, at approximately 40 minutes. This hotel is very difficult to find, its name is almost invisible to guests. The first two floors of this hotel building is a pharmacy, which can divert your attention. Front desk is on the 3rd floor. It is located right next to the train station, quite convenient for those not driving. Charge for parking at a nearby car park, with fixed space, is at daily rate of 900 yen. Furniture and amenities are old but clean. Windows can be open to allow fresh air getting in at night.

Great location, just 10 minutes from Kyoto Station”
Clean, comfortable and great location
The one thing that struck me was just how easy to find this hotel. Take the train from Kyoto Station, head towards Seta, which is a 10-minute ride, walk out of the station and Seta Urban is right in front of you. A 7-11 and Lawson, as well as other street food places are just downstairs. The front desk was very friendly and have a good enough command of English to brief you about the hotel, how to use the key and could answer the usual questions like how do I get on the WiFi. The rooms itself were comfortable and well-maintained. Be sure to read their manual (English in the back) to find hidden language gems in there. If you find something lacking in the room, there are shelves on each floor that you can take extra blankets, pillows and other amenities for no extra charge. It was something I didn't need but appreciated that it was there. My overall experience was good. And when I head back to Kyoto again, Seta Urban will be top on my list to stay.

clean, close to supermarket, train, restaurants, friendly staff
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. My room was clean, with comfortable bed, big enough (generally, in Japan rooms are very small, but mine was quite big). Very friendly staff, coin laundry. The hotel is not in the city center (Kyoto), but it is close (2 minutes walk) to a train station, and train takes 18 minutes to arrive to Kyoto station, where you can take a bus to any destination in Kyoto. Very convenient, just be ready to pay 320*2 yens every day for a train.

Very friendly staff, clean rooms, 20 min to Kyoto ”
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Many had good English. 20 minute metro ride to downtown Kyoto. Affordable local restaurants.
Overall, we had a great stay. It was about a 20 meter walk to the train station that took us right into downtown Kyoto everyday. The place is clean and friendly. It's a business hotel so there is not much going on but it's a clean, comfortable bed. Coin operated laundry machines with dryers right by the front desk. Quick internet. Great if you want to save some money and are willing to take a ride into town in the mornings.

Although not a fancy, upscale hotel, Seta Urban Hotel is a short walk from the train station, the staff is courteous and helpful, the room, as well as the entire hotel, were very clean, and the restaurant downstairs is convenient, with decent food (I only had the Japanese breakfast, but it was quite good). No complaints whatsoever.
