Good location
Location, value
Location was very good, excellent Japanese service (as usual), rooms were reasonably sized and overall very comfortable. My only complain is the sporadic wifi connection in the lobby and the lack of wifi in the room - that was quite inconvenient.

Great location, tiny rooms
excellent breakfast buffet, great location
the rooms were tiny for the price, but that's the norm for japan. the location was fantastic. we walked to gion many times, to kiyomizu temple (great shopping along the way!), and the darling neighborhood just outside the hotel. breakfast was very good. we'd just come from 2 days at a vegetarian temple stay, and inhaled the dinner buffet--seemed like the best meal we'd had in ages we were so hungry!

Very nice hotel and good location
Very big and clean room, lovely staff and services, good for value
My boyfriend and I loved to stay at this hotel. It was good for value for the room, service and location. There was even foxtel in the room! Japanese bathroom tends to be very small but our was a decent size. The place was roomy and it was very clean overall. There was bus stops just outside the hotel. There were shops in the surrounding. Walkable to Gion district, about 15-20 minutes stroll. Did not try the foods at the hotel so cannot comment.

Incredible location and fantastic service
Very helpful staff, ideal location for sightseeing and going out, and a wonderful well-kept room
Stayed here for a few nights during a trip around Kansai. Easily the best hotel from the entire trip. Conveniently located near a subway station and the main road in front of the hotel has a lot to offer in terms of eating, drinking, and entertainment. Highly recommended.

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.
