          Comfortable home away from home: best location, clean and great value for money”

          Our group of three friends really enjoyed our stay at The Limelight Kyoto Hotel's apartment (No.4) on 3rd Floor. We were pleasantly surprised with the friendly and welcoming staff, cleanliness, finding all facilities of great comfort and best value for money. There is a separate kitchen with necessary utensils, a bath tub, and a toilet room, a spacious living/bed room suiting 3 persons with a wardrobe and small balcony. The location is superb being 12 mins train journey from the Kyoto Station (Sagano Line), just a road across the Hanazono station and next door to a Pharma store and convenience shop. I highly recommend visiting Myoshin-ji temple with beautiful garden just 5 mins walk from the hotel. I highly recommend The Limelight Kyoto Hotel to anyone coming for a short trip or a long stay in Kyoto.

          Thank you so much for your positive review of our hotel! We're thrilled to hear how much you and your friends enjoyed your stay and are happy that you could make yourselves more at home with the amenities we provide. Our location is definitely a perk since it's very convenient for travelling by train or bus to the major destinations, and being right across the street from Hanazono Station makes for a quick walk back "home." :) It's great to hear that you went exploring in the area, especially at Myoshin-ji Temple, which is quiet and beloved by locals but no less beautiful than other temples here. We hope to host you again during your next trip to Kyoto and are looking forward to welcoming you back! Warm regards, Guest Relations Manager The Limelight Kyoto

          Very clean”

          Pros: 11 minutes train ride from Kyoto (JR) to Hanazono Station. Hotel is just about across the Hanazono Station. You can easily it when you exit the train station. Right at the train exit there is a family mart. Very clean. The bed is very comfortable. I had a good sleep. Located in a quiet area. Away from hustle & bustle of the city. The design of the dining area is so chic. You can cook. They provide cooking pots, pans, utensils, plates, cooking oil, salt, pepper, sugar for your use. Also have free coffee & tea. There is also a fridge & small oven. Cons: They only provide 1 towel for your entire stay. If you request for a new one you have to pay extra. They also dont change the beddings in my 6 nights of stay there. Not sure if that is the usual thing for capsules or hostels. They dont have a lift. Reception is on the 2nd floor so if you have a large & heavy luggage you will have a hard time carrying it on the stairs.

          Worth the price!”

          The Limelight was such an amazing place to stay and an amazing cost. I stayed in the female dormitory which (at the time) only cost me $30 usd. It is a super easy 2 min walk to the station that you can get anywhere quickly. I visited Nara, Osaka and even into the mountain onsen in just a weekend! Highly reccommend!

          Amazing ambience and cute touches ”

          The hostel is right across from Hanazono station exit so it is very easy to find. The only potential issue is if you have big luggage, you will have to carry it to to the second floor of the building as there is no lift. I booked this place for night as I wanted somewhere cheap yet relatively close to Arashiyama. It was about 15 minutes to Arashiyama by train, much fast than if I had stayed in Gion or other popular areas. The beds and lounge were so beautiful and clean. Each bunk had a security box, USB charging ports, and light switches that you could control brightness with. The lounge has plenty of plugs, tables, and cushions so I could be productive with my work. I only stayed for one night so I did not use the kitchen that often, but I could tell there was at least a fridge, stove, and some kitchenware. The bathrooms were probably my favourite part of the hostel. In between the sinks were cotton pads, cotton swabs, hair dryers and/hair curlers (of very good quality as well). Bottles of toner, lotions, and other products were were the sinks with little notes as to suggest how to use them (With a pitch that you could buy the product from the drug store next door) Toilets all had bidets installed, and the shower rooms were clean.

          This hotel is really great. So close to JR Hanazono station and Arashiyama. Very clean and I love their salon design.. 🙂 The staffs are also so kind and helpful. If this hotel can provide dispenser for drinking or drinking machine, it would be amazing. I highly recommend this hotel to you. 🙂
