Great hotel. Highly recommended”
Great service from staff when asking for direction to attractions and recommended a good buffet near the hotel for our first lunch in Kyoto. Clean room with daily cleaning if needed. Double bed is just enough to fit two people. Small room (expected from Japan standards). Extremely close to transportation with subway and right next to main street which is accessible to buses to attractions. Close walking distance to Gion, shopping streets and food places. Overall good location, great service, clean rooms. Would book again.

Great except the last evening”
Room was spacious and you get everything you need. I loved staying here despite it being just a little further away from the river. It is next to Shijo Station which I used everyday. Everything was great until the last night when the housekeeper moved my luggage, which was originally opened and closed it without securing the close and everything fell out. They didn't bother moving it back or cleaning up the mess that was made... I had wrapped a couple fragile things in my close that fell out and it rolled out too. If my belongings were even more fragile - this would have turned into a huge issue.

Great location and overall good value hotel.”
This small hotel is near a subway station and bus stops to your attractions. They even sell all day bus passes with a printout for bus numbers and locations to popular attractions. The room was very clean and spartan. Be aware that you have to step up into the bathroom and that the room is not super large. If you are not concerned with the size and don't need all the extras of large, name brand hotels, this is a very good hotel to stay. We would definitely stay here again!

This is my second time staying in this hotel. Everything was as great as the first time I stayed here last year. However, this time I forgot some grapes in the fridge, but 5 minutes after my check out, the staff said they could not find it. It was absolutely my fault, and it was a very small thing, but it was not the way Japanese people and services are famous for.

Hotel was next to the Karasuma/Shijō stations, which was really convenient. It was also a few steps from the main shopping street with a Yoshinoya just downstairs and a few 7-11s nearby, which was great for our late night supper fix. The room itself was comfortable and clean. For our travel dates, the price was better than most other hotels in the vicinity.

Economy double room is more suited for single person”
Yes Japan hotel rooms are small, but there are still different sizes. I would recommend in your hotel search to book larger rooms than the 11/12 square metre rooms. The economy double here is 12m and is difficult for two people both with suitcases. The hotel is clean and well located near a subway otherwise, and the staff are helpful.

Great Hotel if you are planning to take train transfer to Osaka”
Small compact hotel that is convenient and near to main shopping belt. Very convenient if you are planning to take train transfer to Osaka as the distance required to wheel your luggages relatively shorter with access to lift nearby (instead of lugging them down the stairs). For this, it is already a plus point for us. Shower is hot and consistent, perfect after a day of tiredness/walking. Hotel has laundry and dryer machines too, very useful to help bring lesser clothes.

The facilities, cleanliness and location of this place is the best. It is very easy access to a lot of attraction. Nishiki Market is just 200 metres away and it is located in the central location where it is connected to department store and you can take bus or travel by foot for various attractions in Kyoto. It is also easily access from Osaka!! I travelled from Osaka via Hankyu line train (only costs 400 ¥!!) from Umeda and get off at Karasuma station. Take exit 19 and turn right and in 100 metres you will see a Yoshinoya shop, this hotel is right next to Yoshinoya. Overall I have a great stay at this hotel.
