The hotel is a few steps away from the bus stop which services several routes to Kyoto Station. Right next to Yasaka Shrine and close to Gion. Also a 10-15 minute walk to Kiyomizudera temple. Hotel is clean and well maintained and more affordable compared to other hotels within the vicinity.

great location”
Very close to Gion (across the street) with numerous restaurants, bus stop almost in front of hotel (several buses direct to Kyoto station, including Raku 100 taking you to many sights); walking distance to river (and many more restaurants) and subway. Yasaka shrine within a few minutes. If you're not a smoker: be sure to book a non-smoking room.

A gem in the Kyoto that shouldn't be overlooked”
First things first - THIS HAS A BUS STOP OUT THE FRONT OF THE HOTEL! A major life saver when you arrive and when you want to travel directly to the station or get yourself into the main area of Kyoto. This in itself is one of the main reasons this hotel scores highly, complete game changer. The location is just an arms length away from everything. The Gion is at your doorstep, the yakasaka shrine is next door and a lot of the quirks and idiosyncrasies of Kyoto are just waiting to be discovered. Teramachi street is a short walk from the hotel, which is also connected with bus stops anyway! The room was larger than expected with plenty of space for 2 luggage cases to be opened up. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom/washroom was adequet, with the shower/bath being separated. I'd write so much more about why this hotel will be visited again when we return, but Agoda wont let me. 10/10 - it was my 5th return to Kyoto, first time in this hotel and I'll be returning here in 2020.

Very nice stay”
The staff were very helpful in making reservations and recommendations for the area. Excellent english skills and follow-through on anything we asked. Location is within walking distance of lots of great sites, and not too far from train stations to go further out. Breakfast was nice with lots of options. Not super-fancy but a really nice, comfortable stay.

Hotel didn’t align with agoda well for the pricing. Hotel asked to pay extra charge since they claimed the price in agoda is for 3 people only causing me bad impression. Anyway hotel location is good but still expensive.

Great location & exceptional service!”
Great location right beside Yasaka Shrine and 3-minute walk to Maruyama Park. Walk on along historic streets of Gion with beautiful scenery and structures, rental rickshaws plus a quaint ice cream sweets shop where we ate on tatami mats and a Studio Ghibli/Hello Kitty shop on the way to Kiyomizudera Temple. Also very near kimono rentals & restaurants. All these reachable by walking from Hotel Sunline! Buffet breakfast was relaxing & delicious. Most of all, all the staff were very prompt, professional and pleasantly helpful with our request for nearby rooms for our group, provided maps & directions, assisted us with our request for taxi, and even lent historic clothes & authentic-looking toy samurai to our kids while helping to take our pictures. We felt like they all sincerely wanted to be of service during our stay. Many thanks for a heartwarming, memorable stay! It was nice meeting you all. Arigato!!!

Somewhat lacking ”
We booked a non-smoking double room well in advance and this was not available upon our arrival. The staff offered us a double smoking room with an air purifier, however these tend not to be effective in our experience, so we insisted on a double non-smoking as per the confirmed booking. The best they could offer was a non-smoking twin and they assured us when the pushed the beds together it would be exactly like a double. It wasn't. they simply joined them and kept the single doona and sheets so there was a decent gap in between. The bathrooms were a little harsh and unusual to say the least and the breakfasts were not hot when they should have been. The location was excellent, the lobby always smelt lovely, however I didn't feel this was the best value for money accommodation.

Nice Hotel with Big Rooms in Great Location”
This was my first time to Kyoto, so I didn’t really have a sense of the best area to stay. I mainly chose this hotel because of the bigger than usual rooms (for Japan) it had. Not only did it have good-sized rooms, but the location ended up being fantastic. It’s located right next to Yasaka Shrine and is in the hear of Gion, which is the beautiful traditional area of Kyoto. The Shijo-Dori Street is just a block away and the Kiyomizu-dera, Kodai-Ji, and Chion-In temples are nearby. The staff at the hotel is fantastic. They were very helpful with recommendations and how to get around. The advertised twin beds are actually double beds, which was great! There is space around the room to move around. The only problems with the room are no dressers to unpack your bags into and no in-room safe. No closets either. The breakfast is very good, having a mix of Japanese and Western options. Bus stops are nearby, but subway stations are a 10 minute walk or so away. I highly recommend the hotel!

The staff of the hotel went the extra mile to provide me with a map of Kyoto to allow me to have a better understanding of the different point of interests to visit in Kyoto. In addition, I appreciate the fact that the hotel staff offered their help to take care of my luggage on my check-out day as they were under the impression that I'll still be going for sightseeing in the day while waiting for my flight in the evening. This was something that I never encounter throughout my hotel stays throughout the countries that I've visited, which was really amazing and thoughtful.
