Japanese style hotel right across from city hall

Would not recommend Thu, Jun 25, 2015
This hotel is 30 feet from one of the subway exits. I was on the inside so my room window looked in to the court yard of the Honnoji Temple. My room was big but very very simple. Not many amenities. It has two public bath area that are common in Japanese hotels, one on the 3 floor and one in the basement. I would rate these slight above average. Tea was provide in the room and in the hallways. Internet only in the lobby. Internet was fast enough to do phone calls from. I had no-issues or problem.

Interesting Weekend

Would recommend Mon, Apr 1, 2013
The Hannoji hotel is not for everyone but I had a great time at the hotel. I was traveling alone and was looking for a more traditional hotel experience in Kyoto but couldn't afford the really high end luxury suites offered by the other hotels. At the Honnoji, I got to experience sitting and sleeping Japanese style and got to have my own little tea ceremony in the room. My room did not have a shower and I got to use the very clean public bath in the basement. My room was on the 5th floor, overlooking the old city offices building, relatively large and clean. Overall, the location of the hotel is perfect. Within walking distance of many shops, eateries and unknown cultural landmarks but also very easy access to metro. On my second day, I rented a bike and explored, highly recommended. You can get a bike delivered to the hotel (for a small charge) or you can just go the street corner and rent one.


Visit this hotel in late March or early April. There is a small river lined with cherry blossoms that is visually stunning to see. Very popular with native Japanese visitors.
