    Great value business hotel near Kyoto Station”

    Enjoyed my stay. Staff were courteous and always helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Would wholeheartedly recommend for a tourist coming to Kyoto who isn't looking for five star but wants easy access to transport to visit the sights Kyoto has to offer.

    Very pleasant and clean hotel”

    Lovely hotel, so convinient being a 3 minute walk away from Kyoto station, made my life so much easier going to different places using the subways and local routes. Room was just a good size for one person but if there are 2 of you, you may find it a little uncomfortable as there is only just enough space to put one large suitcase. There is a Starbucks about 2 minutes away by foot, a Family Mart for you water and breakfast needs. I wouldn't recommend having breakfast in the hotel, too expensive and you get better choice buying elsewhere. They are stricted about check-in time which is 3pm. I arrived an hour early and they wouldn't let me go to my room, but they kindly stored my suitcase until I returned later in the evening. Other than that, I would definitely stay here again if I travel alone, but couples will find these rooms a tight squeeze. I noticed a lot of office workers staying here, but still a lovely hotel. Enjoy your stay regardless of my opinions :)

    Great location! Super close to the Kyoto Station, has a 711 and Family Mary almost beside it too! Breakfast was yummy but can be cloying especially if you spent 4 nights like me. I wasn’t impressed by the level of cleanliness of the rooms as compared to other hotels in Japan that I’ve tried though I think it’s highly subjective and depends on the cleaning person because my room was super clean on my last night. Room size was okay for a solo traveler with one large luggage. Super satisfied with my stay.

    Tiny rooms”

    Most Japanese hotel rooms are on the small side but it can be the way they are arranged. This one was small but also poorly set out. No laundry facilities but there are some close by. Not a 'bad' hotel ut unless you get it for a great price I would try another. Good location, 5 mins walk to Kyoto station.

    I did not have a good stay. Disturbed by noises from next door neighbours coming back. Could hear toilet flushing quite loudly, someone coughing early in the morning and late at night. Some creepy noises at night that I could hardly sleep for 2 nights and decided to check out after the 2nd night instead of enduring for 4 nights. I would not choose APA chain for my future stay in Japan.

    Great location- good value”

    As I spend so little time in a hotel room when travelling, this hotel was ideal. Not that the room was not very clean and comfortable. Small- Yes. Located just 5 minutes walk from Kyoto Rail Station and close to transportation, this is an ideal base for seeing all the major attraction.

    Small room is expected in Kyoto and the room rate is comparatively reasonable with such a good location. Staff is nice and smooth check in process. Cleanliness should be improved and dirt was found in the bathroom. Overall is good!

    Fairly priced hotel chain. If I have to choose, then APA Hotels would my first choice for budget. ”

    Despite the modestly sized rooms, I find APA Hotels to be fairly priced and is situated near Kyoto station in Japan, which facilitates travel. I understand that there are some customers complaining about the compact size of the room. Maybe if a consolidated luggage locker room(that could only be accessed by their room keycard) could be renovated on each floor to serve the guests living on that particular floor might help. Overall I had pleasant experiences whenever I stay in APA Hotels. 宿泊してくれてありがとう、APA Hotelに感謝します!

    Location is very good. Less than 5 mins walking to the Kyoto station and bus stop. The room is quite small, so if you travel with big luggage, you may consider to book a bigger room. The staff are helpful and you can buy Kyoto bus one day pass here at the hotel counter. Overall it is a pleasant living experience.

    Pleasant Surprise ”

    We arrived in Sapporo late so we decided to book this hotel since it was so close to JR station and made the right choice. This hotel is very new and stylish. Unlike other APA hotels we've stayed at, this hotel had a full breakfast buffet with a huge selection. Will definitely book it again in the future.

    Great location, very clean and functional but way too small for two people if you are staying for more than 2 days”

    The value for the money couldn't be beat especially around new year's eve. The location was excellent - a short walk from the Kyoto Station North exit, lots of restaurants (all kinds) and shopping nearby, The room was very clean and functional. The wifi signal was good and the TV was Huge compare to the size of the room. My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 night but decided to move to another hotel with a bigger room. We thought that a 9 square meter (around 82 sqft) room was just way too small for two people. Actually, we were fine with it for the first night but we felt that it got smaller every night. We recommend this place if you are only staying in Kyoto for a night or two and out most of the time. Otherwise look for hotel with a room larger than 9 square meters if there are two of you.

    Great location!”

    I love the location of this hotel, it is really convenient to stay within walking distance to Kyoto station - makes travelling around the city to all the sightseeing locations easy and quick. You can choose to take the JR / subway or local buses. It's about a 10 mins stroll from Kyoto station to the property, a pleasant and relatively easy walk even with heavy luggages. The hotel is pretty basic, it's a small room which means you might have a tough time opening 2 luggages within the room. Walking space becomes really limited with luggages. That's quite common in Japan though where space is often an issue! Wifi is very weak and inconsistent in this property which can be frustrating when you're trying to do research / work. Staff can't seem to rectify the issue too.

    Convenient location to move around Kyoto”

    The hotel is very near Kyoto Station which makes it a desirable place to stay. It is clean, the staff are very helpful, specially in recovering my ipad which I left in our hotel in Kanazawa. I am very grateful of Ms. Yuko's help about that. It is very near shops, malls, convenient stores and restaurants. The only drawback is there is not much space for two people to move around freely in the room. But overall, APA Villa Hotel Kyoto-Ekimae is a pleasant place to stay.
