Good location and new!”

This hotel was a jem, just a 5-7 mins walk to the main Kyoto station. The hotel feels very very new and rooms were well cleaned. However, we had the hotel lobby staff unable to converse in English thus we had a hard time trying to communicate with them. Although there was a language barrier, the staff had remained professional and patient while I tried to articulate my needs. At this moment, Sotetsu Fresa Inn Kyoto is the number one of my list of hotels in Kyoto.

We have stayed in Sotetsu Fresa in Tokyo and very happy with it, so we chose Sotetsu Fresa in Kyoto again this time. The hotel is very new, near the station (about 5 mins walk), it's very clean so you can enjoy the bath with the Onsen powder they provided with no problem. The room is very spacious compared to most of the hotels in Japan. Their breakfast is even better than the one in Tokyo as it is buffet style and always have something difference every day. I'll definitely stay here again if I have the chance to come back to Kyoto. The staffs are all very friendly as well.

Great Location, Well Planned Room, Hospitable Front Desk”

Stayed here for a night and this is the hotel I’d highly recommend as a base if you’re making day trips out to other regions from Kyoto. Pros: - Great Location (5 minutes walk from Kyoto Station, Donki/Clothing stores are located at the Front, Convenience Store next door, Food can be found within Walking Distance at different price points) - Well thought out room (Luggage Rack is provided for (without calling Housekeeping for it), dedicated air conditioning+heater, in room phone charging USB (Micro Usb, Type C and Lightning and plug)) - Hospitable Front Desk that is fluent in English. - Complementary Amenities such as Cleansing Oil, Toners, Face Mask, Body Lotion, Teas available at the Lobby - Free Coffee from Teatime to Midnight at Lobby. Cons: - You may get lost while figuring your way to the Hotel from Kyoto Station as the Station has multiple exits. Tip is to get to the Bus Station near Avanti.

Nicely Surprised”

Stayed here for 6 nights. The double room was slightly larger than those offered by other hotel chains but bathroom was the usual compact Japanese style. Great location, very clean modern rooms. The staff were super friendly and very helpful . Experienced my first earthquake in Japan while staying here and the staff were very reassuring! Laundry facilities are a plus and there a few bicycle rental places nearby to whiz around Kyoto city on. It's the best way to travel here. Didn't have the breakfast so can't comment but all-in-all I really recommend this Hotel/Inn.

Great location”

I stayed here for one night with my mother as I took her around Japan. The staff was kind and couteous and the hotel will hold your luggage before check in which is very convenient. The location is perfect. Its just about a 5 minute walk from the Hachijo exit at Kyoto station and there is a Lawsons convenience store right next door to the hotel. My only issue was that the room was clearly not mean to hold two beds. There wasn't a lot of space to open your suitcase, so if space is a factor in your decision, I wouldn't recommend staying in a room with two beds. However, if it doesnt matter much, the room is clean, the staff is friendly, and the location could not be better for the price. I would recommend this to my friends and family traveling in Kyoto in the future.

Very Convenient small friendly place ”

We enjoyed our stay here the property was very close (1 block) to the Southern exit of the Kyoto station... the staff were very friendly and the location was fantastic..next door to Lawson.....7 a block away. Kyoto Avanti is a multi story smaller mall next door various shopping with a pretty awesome Thai massage which is nice when traveling. The room was very quit even though we were close to the elevators. The room was also very clean and small like most in Japan for sub $100 rooms but the beds were very comfortable as were the pillows (one firmer and one soft). Breakfast (buffet) was descent a little western and Japanese ... salad etc. I enjoyed a nice sushi boat restaurant at the station on the ground level south side “sushi no musashi” only a 5 min or so walk from hotel. Also when heading back to station from hotel if the weather is bad use the staircase and pathway below across from the station as shelter as it connects directly to the trains and Shinkansen. Enjoy!

Great location!”

The inn is very close to the Kyoto station with very good access to trains and buses so it was easy for us to travel anywhere. There's a Lawson store just beside it so it's perfect for late night snacks or if you don't avail of their breakfast. We loved that they had free coffee and tea and face masks and other toiletries at the lobby! The staff was also kind, accommodating and spoke good english so communication was a breeze. They also kept our luggage for us on our last day when we checked out so we could continue exploring the city. We would definitely stay again!

This hotel was pretty new and clean. You basically do not need to bring your own toiletries as hair comb, razor, toothbrush, toothpaste are provided in the room and you can get toner, moisturizer, body lotion, facial masks, hair mask at the lobby at night. Staffs were very friendly and helpful. Check in and check out were fast. Beds were great just that they provide one soft pillow and another pillow that was rather hard and heavy, which is quite common in Japan. Location wise, it is at the south of Kyoto station and you can easily walk to Kyoto ekimae bus stop easily via Kyoto station

Location can’t be beat!”

If you’re travelling into Kyoto via JR trains this modestly priced hotel is perfect! Just a short 3-5 minutes walk from the station. Use Avanti mall as your point of reference as the hotel was behind it. The room was tight and I would say cozy for 2. I had a double to myself and it was ample space. They have coin laundry which is great if you have clothes that need washed part way through your trip. Laundry was 300 yen to wash and 100 yen for 30 mins drying time. The AC worked really well and the room had a Mini fridge and bathroom was very well stocked with amenities which is common in Japanese hotels. There are 3 convenience stores within a block radius for your water, snacks or alcohol. The staff were very friendly in the usual Japanese way and would greet you as you come and go. They have complimentary tea and coffee though I'm not certain of the hours. There's also a vending machine in the laundry room with both cold and hot bevs. No complaints about my stay.

From the day I booked this hotel thru Agoda, the staff has shown great efficiency by responding immediately to our requests and queries. Great location, as the hotel is just a few minutes walk from the Kyoto station as well as the limousine bus stop. There is a convenience store beside the hotel. Amenities and freebies were well provided. The room is bigger than the other hotel that we checked in, with almost the same price range. Checking in and checking out was a breeze. They also provide a few discount coupons to Avanti mall. I loved it!
