    Great stay in this quiet part of Kyoto”

    Definitely a good choice to stay in Arashiyama for a night or two, to experience the quietness at night and early morning when the crowd hasnt arrived. Yado Arashiyama has a super cool cafe/common area, we love spending time there at night for some drinks and reading. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Totally recommend this place!

    Loved the place!”

    I loved everything about this place! - staff was friendly and helpful. made good suggestions. remembered my nightly preferrence for hot water on the 2nd night without any reminders. - place was clean and bed and duvet was fluffly and comfortable. Loved the strong shower pressure too! (it's something which I look out for in hotels, one will certainly appreciate it especially after out whole day walking. they served lovely thick french toast (at very reasonable price). - overall, I loved that the people are friendly and warmth and yet, gave me the privacy I wanted.

    Convenient Modern”

    This place is great for single or couples traveling. Conveniently located 5 min walk from Arashiyama Hankyu line station. Also walking distance from all the things you want to do in Arashiyama like monkey mountain and bamboo forest. Super modern, cute, clean, comfortable bed. Great price for what you get. You get your basic necessities. Room is pretty big compared to most of the hotels I've previously booked in Japan. At least it fits 2 luggage spread out. They have a cafe which offers food only til a certain time. Friendly staff. Great place to stay for a weekend trip to see Inari Tori Gates, Golden Castle, and Gion too.

    A relaxing hotel in amusing place - Arashiyama”

    It is not a grand hotel but its relaxing environment with good attitude staff provided a good experience for us. The main shopping and dining areas are in the opposite side of the bridge but we enjoy to walk through the bridge to feel the natural environment. Although we need to put down the room key on front desk when we leave the hotel each time, the staff are friendly and can recognise us and give back us the correct key. Arashiyama is really a good place for relaxing. Although this hotel do not have a Spring or Spa, we also recommend to anyone who want to stay in a cost effective hotel.

    Worthy consideration if... ”

    Pros : love the location, 3mins to the beginning of the Togetsu Bridge Nearest, 300m walk away is the Hankyu Arashiyama Train line tk the right side if follow Google map , is more pedestrian friendly.Its a loop. Not to b confused with JR line. Bus frm Kyoto Station amongst them are number 73 conveniently stops at Arashiyama shopping area & stops at Hankyu Arashiyama Line stn. Yado, was a very lovely cafe, with full length windows seeing their lovely garden Cafe ambience is brilliantly lovely too Staff are very helpful & friendly. Cons : i was surprised that Yado doesn't provide kettle but, thankfully Yado provide hot water on request. I usually drink hot water so I would have to make two trips to the cafe for refill. No table, just use your headboard for space. Yado allows guests to bring in food frm outside to the cafe after 5pm. Maybe because hotel was at foot hill of mountain,there were tiny harmless insects in the room. Guess becoz we are sharing space with nature.

    This hotel is very new with chic simple design. Its just 4mins walk from the Hankyu Arashiyama Station. 15 min walk to the Bamboo Forest. We stayed here so that we could be the first to arrive at the bamboo forest in the morning and we were. It’s also 4mins walk to Onsen Fufu-no-Yu which we highly recommend.

    Cosy stay”

    Really enjoyed our stay at this cosy and trendy accommodation. Close to train station and bus stop so easy to get to. The staff were so lovely, no kettle in room but they gave us mugs and a flask of hot water so could make tea in the room. Can also use the downstairs area for hanging out and can bring own food/drink if staying there. Great shower and hot water and comfy bed/pillows. Would happily book here again if staying in Arashiyama. Advantages of staying in area is early access to the bamboo forest and we also hiked up Mt Atago, Kyoto’s highest peak.

    Simple clean and modern. ”

    Simple. Clean and staff were friendly. Lounge/lobby looks chic. Room is pretty bare bones and basic. I would recommend more counter space for guests to place their things on. The Only table there was was a bedside table. There was a rack for you to hang your wet towels on, but it's over the bed so you have to step on your bed to hang your things. More places to hang things would be beneficial as well.
