The best food is off the main drag...have no fear of the alleyways...be prepared to sit on the floor, sans shoes of course...multiple courses of just about anything you could ever want to eat. Breakfast...small Pastry/Coffee shops are open at 7 am...yummy!

Perfect location extremely clean

Rooms are very big for Japan, I stayed 10 days and really managed to feel at home. My only recommendation is to introduce the WIFI internet connection. For long distance travelers it is easier to have tablets and mobile phones than laptops that allow the use of the LAN connection.

Great Value with Location too!

It was a 3 star but seemed closer to 4 to me. The room was small but really all you need if you're there to sight see and not be hanging out in the room. My wife and I loved our stay, the staff was friendly and helpful, they held our bags when we checked out so we could use the rest of the day for more sightseeing. They also have a masseuse in from 6pm-midnight and they can call in a second so we both got massages there on the second floor at a reasonable rate (6000Y/hour). Definitely a good place to stay in central Kyoto!

Excellent in every way

This hotel was ideally located in the main shopping street of Kyoto and also convenient for buses and subway to most of the main sights of the City. The reception staff were excellent and very helpful. My apologies for posting a bad review previously as I got my Hotels mixed up!!! I would recommend this hotel to everyone and would stay there again if and when we return to Kyoto. Excellent value for money

Take the one day bus passes available in Hotel and elsewhere for 500 yen which allow you to travel on most buses and places all day. A single trip without the pass is 220 yen

Excellent Hotel

All expectations met. No qualms recommending this hotel to anyone. Staff were very friendly and helpful. About 3 or 4 blocks away from the nearest subway station(Shijo). Also ideal for taking the randen to Arashiyama. Will definitely stay again.

Very pleasant stay!

Check in was smooth and fast. We got a corner room, not facing the street so it was very quiet. Location is great, as a bus stop is right in front of the Hotel. Room was not the biggest, but accomodates two people without hassles.

Good Hotel Find in Kyoto

Large clean and very comfortable rooms. Friendly counter staff. Location a bit off beaten path so extra walking but made up for by comfort and value of this relatively new Kyoto hotel. Would definitely recommend.

Use taxis. Just a bit more expensive than subway when traveling with 2 or more people for short distances.
