The hotel ensures a comfortable stay with a good location for access to any part of the city or alternatively for guests wanting to make a base for travelling around the area. Staff welcome guest with the Japanese hospitality. There is a traditional Japanese public hot baths on the top floor where guests can enjoy a hot bath and great views over the city.(1008NN) The hotel is 11-story high-rise modern building. The hotel is located within a 10-minute walk from Kyoto station. Being close to Kyoto station makes its location very attractive.

Not so comfortable, but OK in a pinch

Not the most comfortable room ever. It was a few bucks cheaper than the other places we stayed in Japan, but far more cramped. The bed was really hard (even for me, and I love firm beds - but maybe this was a cultural issue on our part), the bathroom was tiny, and the room was stuffy. Having said that, the location is good, and the room had a nifty little map of the area that we used to find a laundromat. The front desk was also helpful when I lost my key and had to replace it.

Small room, but good value for the price

We stayed one night at APA Horikawadori during our trip to Kyoto. The hotel is located on a small alley off the main street, about a 10 minute walk from the Kyoto train station. The room was very clean and functional, but a bit on the small side - in particular, the bathroom was so small that it feels like you're on a plane, with barely enough space to turn around. Overall, APA Horikawadori was a convenient base for exploring Kyoto, close to the train station, the bus system, etc. We didn't spend too much time in the room anyway, so the small size wasn't an issue.

The top floor of the Isetan department store (which is part of the Kyoto train station) has several great restaurants, specializing in different Kyoto specialties like yuba (tofu skin) cuisine, Kyoto vegetarian cuisine, etc. They seem to be frequented by locals and are good for an authentic Kyoto meal.

tiny but functional

Close to the jr station and thus all the restaurants located in the Porta and the top floors of the jr station. Also close to the city bus system where you can purchase an all day pass for $5.00

We ate every night in either the Porta which is an underground shopping center in front of the rail station or in the upstairs two floors of the rail station. Lots of choices for people. There are some places that offer a cheap but good breakfast.

Small rooms but good location

I stayed only for a couple nights with friends, it's from walking distance of Kyoto station which is very convenient. The rooms are very small but they are ok and have everything you need although big people will have trouble bathing in there.
