Convenient Location”

APA hotel Kyoto is located just 10mins walk from Kyoto station. It is also located near the bus terminal, underground shopping and eateries area + Isetan and the Cube shopping malls as well. There is also a Bic Camera mall (which literally sell anything and everything). The room is pretty standard size of what one would find of Japanese accommodation - however - whatever one need to make our stay pleasant is provided for. Staff are courteous and helpful - though they speak limited English.

Will stay here again”

This hotel is definitely value for money in Kyoto as we found most central places a little pricey. We got a nice room, a little small but most APA rooms are on the smaller side, it had everything we needed and just enough room for both our suitcases. The staff are lovely and try their best to help whenever we had queries and were quite happy to hold our luggage after checkout. The location of this is within walking distance (about 10minute walk) from Kyoto Station, but if you are travelling with a younger family or have more than one rolling suitcase, it's probably better to grab a cab (taxi).

Everything the city center offers”

The location right next to the CUBE is the best thing. Otherwise, room was comfortable and of average size. Beds were perhaps too comfortable!

The APA Hotel in Kyoto was a good hotel in a great location. The CUBE is right next door for dining and shopping, and your Shinkansen is right there for departure as well. There's a Bic Camera adjacent, if you need electronics. A coin laundry is 15 minutes walk east, by the river. It is entirely possible to walk to Chion-in and Kiyomizu-dera from the hotel - I did it. It'll make you feel like a pilgrim. (Takes about 45 minutes to get there) Really, a great place to stay. It's comparable to the Granvia, but - not being in the station itself - much more affordable.

the best part of this hotel is its location, it is close to Kyoto station and Bic Camera. staff are nice and of english ability. APA Hotel is famous for its small room, but with the affordable price I think it is just OK. Just one thing, I thought I booked a non-smoking room, but in face i live in a smoking floor.

Room was small as most APA rooms are but it was a really good location just a few minutes away from Kyoto Station. Some places of attractions could be reached by walking. So if you’re a light traveller with no baggage, this hotel should be sufficient as it was for me and my husband. Overall, it was a good stay for us as we only needed the room for our things and for sleeping.

Affordable Hotel Close to Station”

The location of the hotel is the biggest draw because it is just 5-10 mins away from Kyoto Station which makes it super accessible to get everywhere. A couple of convenience shops are located around the hotel within a few minutes walk but everything closes pretty early around 9 - 11pm. Hotel room wise - this is the smallest one I've ever stayed in but basic/clean/sufficient for a few nights and you can't really complain about it because of the price paid. Still, this was my first stay at an APA chain hotel and I would choose them again for their value!

Apa Hotel Ekimae is really near with Kyoto Station. The staff was really helpful. But unfortunately, the ceiling is pretty low, and the room a little bit small even for 2 people. If you have a quite big baggage, you really need to think where to put your baggage. Overall, i quite enjoy the stay.

Unbeatable location”

The hotel is a 2-3 minute walk from the Kyoto Station, which is the terminus for the airport train, Shinkansen and many other trains, subways and buses to countless locations. The station is also a huge shopping and dining complex, so you'll find nearly everything you need there, from toiletries to fashion to supermarkets to restaurants and cafes, including a macrobiotic joint! There are enough English-speaking people in and around the station, plus signs in English, to figure your way around. When you arrive at the station, look for staff wearing an "English" badge, or go to the information counter, and they'll point you in the right direction. After getting off the train, take the Central Exit, go one floor up. When leaving the building, turn left and walk towards the Post Office. Keep left and walk down the road past 7-Eleven. The hotel is right ahead, about 1 block behind the post office. The hotel room is tiny, just a little larger than a train compartment but the location more than makes up for it. It's got a mini bath tub too. If you're out and about all day and don't need a room to lounge about in, it's sufficiently comfortable. I quite enjoyed it.

And,I think maybe the staff was too tried because guests are too much.So they always kinda hurry.and has no time to answer all the questions. Any way,Great location,very close to the train station and centre bus station(200metres),24 hours store within 50 metres,until 5 AM bbq bar within 1 block. good room condition,valueable choice.

pros: location: about 3 minute walking distance from jr kyoto station staff: speaks english internet connection: free
there was no english channel on the tv.

we were very much satisfied with our stay at apa hotel. It was within walking distance from Porta and The Cube malls which offers a wide array of restaurants and shops for tourists to choose from. Plus, internet connection was not only free but very fast as well. The staff were also very helpful. The only thing i didnt like probably was the complimentary slippers (the one where you have to place a stick on paper on top of it) i would have preferred the regular white disposable slippers. Again no free breakfast. Even if check in is at 3pm you can leave your luggage at the concierge to start your tour of the city.

Economical hotel with strategic location”

Located at 10 minutes walk from Kyoto main train station. There’s a 7eleven convenience store as well as Isetan & Bic Camera for your shopping needs. Many eateries nearby, most are located within the station. It is also located within the area of the Kyoto bus terminal. You can catch the city buses or even sightseeing bus there. The hotel itself has small rooms, but good in room aircon. Check-in can ONLY be done after 3pm, but check-out is at 11am sharp. Breakfast was minimalist with mostly Japanese style breakfast. No egg station, so don’t expect omelette or sunny-side-up.

Located within easy walking distance of Kyoto Station; quiet; internet corner on the ground floor; eco policy
very small room; no view

This was one of three APA hotels in Kyoto. This one is less than five minutes walk to Kyoto Station, a good access point for the subway and JR lines. The bus station is also out the front of Kyoto Station. The room was the smallest we stayed in whilst in Japan, but it was quiet and the location meant that we weren't there much anyway. The food in the restaurant was good, though there was no ambience. (There are dozens of eating places at Kyoto Station.)
