Good option for everything”

This was hotel 1/5 that we used on our 15 day vcation to Japan. We rated it narrowly 3rd, losing on bed size and access. The Unizo is brilliantly located in Kawaramachi. Close to the market, to Gion, to the night scene district and on many of the public transport hubs that you will need as a tourist. The hotel is comfortable and the room is fine. THe bed really is too small for a European couple, and is hard up against the wall on one side making access for one partner quite cumbersome. At the price and location, you put up with this - but there's quite a bit of space in the room to expand the bed, and improve access to it. A good option, but there's probably quite a lot of choice in this range so it is no slam-dunk.

Great location and only a bus ride away from Station ”

Stayed here for one night a short walk from a lot of activities Having spent previous 2 nights in Unizo Inn at Kanasawa the breakfast choices here did not match up. No Breakfast Rolls or cold meats or cheeses on offer , more than a little disappointing. Everything else was the usual Unizo standard.

Hotel is very well located, near to subway and buses that a tourist can easily navigate with the help of a mobile GPS. Places of interest are easily accessible. Hotel reception is small but well manned by I'm most impressed by room and bathroom. The assmotion is rooms are tiny in most Japanese hotel but Unizo Inn's room size isn't that bad. I liked that the hotel is eco friendly too. Housekeeping is first class.

Great location and value , but terrible wifi”

Right in the middle of all the shopping, restaurants, and bars of Kyoto and a good value. The only issue, and it can be a big one for international travelers, is that the wifi basically did not work the entire stay. We had trouble ever getting connected in the room and lobby. Room was fairly large and very clean though.

Great location and room!”

Room was bigger than most japan sized rooms. We had enough room to open both our luggages, so it was the right size. It’s Japan, so we knew the rooms would be small, but this hotel is a little bigger than the other hotels we stayed at. Nothing glamorous but had everything we needed. The location was awesome! Within walking distance to the Nishiki market area and lots of yummy food options around. A little far to walk from the JR station, so I recommend a taxi for that, but it is within walking distance to the other non-JR stations. The only thing I didn’t like was that they informed us we could pay 1000 Yen for early check in at 12, so we came back at 12:30 and was informed our room was not ready. Why tell us that we could do early check in if it wasn’t available? We walked back for nothing. Otherwise, I recommend this place!
