    Good location, great buffet breakfast ”
    This hotel is everything that you would expect from an upper midrange hotel, Rooms are a good size, light with good facilities. It's close to all the shopping arcades, markets and department stores as well as hundreds of places to eat and the Gion area of Kyoto. There are bus's or subway to anywhere you want to go. The only off putting thing is the smell of tobacco, even on the non smoking floors altho not in the room itself. For me the ice vending machine was a big plus.

    The hotel is confortable to stay in and located near bus stop and station (although it is not main station). The room is clean and quite spacious for hotel in Japan. We book room with 3 bed and can be occupied with more person if you are travelling with kids.

    Hotel and spa Kyoto ”
    I initially thought the "spa" in the hotel name meant there was some sort of traditional onsen. However, the spa in the name just meant there were spa facilities for massages/pampering services and not a hot spring. The hotel also didn't come with a gym but was situated on a busy street with lots of food and shopping in Kyoto. Would stay only for location but if you are looking for a hotel which provides the full Japanese experience, I'd suggest you look elsewhere.

    Location is perfect! Right next to the nishiki market, gion, temples, etc etc lots of restaurants nearby. we were upgraded to a bigger room (most probably because they did not have anything on the non-smoking room) but who are we to complain? the room was way bigger, it had a view and it was my birthday. Staff were polite and welcoming. hotel is busy. did not try the breakfast

    Great place to stay in Kyoto”
    I have stayed in this hotel three times and would recommend this hotel to those heading to Kyoto. This hotel is close to the train station and shopping areas but it takes about 1/2 hour to get to the Gion historical area. The hotel even allowed me to leave my bags there for a few days for my trip to Kanazawa and Shirokawa-go even before checking in.

    clean, staff attentiveness, and location
    Unfortunately, during this leg of my trip I had food poisoning so I was relegated to resting at the hotel. However, it was a great stay, clean, the staff is very friendly and spoke English very well and it seemed to be around many things. I wish I could give a better a review, but being sick this is the best I could do.

Really love it

    Big hotel, good location, old fashioned.”
    Spacious, location, staff
    This is a very big hotel, room is spacious to compare with others hotel in Kyoto and in the center of travelers district. Here are my rating: Staff: excellent. Room space: excellence. Facility: old, the towels and linen is out of date to feel soft and comfortable, it is hostel standard. There is no self washing room like any other new hotel in Japan. There is no spa for free, I stayed in Dormy in and they have very good free one. Massage price is expensive than other hotel. Break fast is expensive. Air conditioner can not adjust temperature. because the hotel is big so that they use central big system for the whole building, customers come from different countries so that Africa say cold, Norwegian say hot, Chinese say OK, bla ble.. i heard some complain from customer. The bathroom water is heavily chlorine smell like a swimming pool. The hotel is big but they design elevator in 1 place only. This is a bad idea and I have to walk long distant to the room. In generally, this is out of date hotel, the name look interesting and luxury but don't expect too much, what you pay is what you get. With the same money, you can try smaller, newer, more convenience hotel around.

    Wonderful location and wide room space.”
    The location of the hotel is amazing. We were near two main shopping areas and three main parks within walking distance. The room space is wide and the hotel has shops within it.
    The location is the most wonderful thing for this hotel. We were near Gion street and Termachi street for any shopping we want. Also the hotel was in the middle of small shops all around. You can walk to Kyoto station from the hotel if you don't have anything heavy with you. Nejo Castle and two other parks were only a walking distance from the hotel. The room was clean and spacious and the view was wonderful. The Staff will understand you but not all of them will know how to speak English. The hotel has some shops you can buy something from. You can always find a taxi in front of the hotel as they have a taxi line.
