Great location, Bad smell

The hotel is in a great spot - close to many of the sites, close to the river and Pontocho and Gion, great bus and underground access. The staff spoke good English and were very helpful with directions and bus schedules. There were two negatives: no WiFi in the rooms and the WiFi available in the lobby was hit or miss, and the stench of cigarettes in the room and hallways. All the rooms on my floor were marked No Smoking, but it was painfully obvious they had been smoking rooms in the past. I stayed 3 nights and normally would unpack my suitcase for a stay of that duration, but I didn't want my clothes to absorb the old cigarette stench so I lived out of my suitcase.

Good location, average hotel

Overall good as the rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and helpful. Expensive for what it had but it's probably because I went during high peak season. Western style hotel so if you want a more Japanese style experience stay at a bed and breakfast (ryokan). It's worth it!

It was my business trip and it was too noisy for me. I would choose a different hotel for my business trip next time.

Quick stay

The location was great! Hotel staff was very friendly and spoke some English. My only complaint would be the mattress and pillows were extra firm, which is not my preference. Overall my staff was enjoyable.

Great location- No gym- No safety box

Great location. Close to metro and bus stations. The restaurant does not have a non-smoker section and the elevator area in the lobby get inundated by cigarette smoke which can be annoying. There is no gym in the hotel but the imperial palace nearby has nice jogging paths. Staff very helpful. There are no safety boxes in the room but one can use a box in the lobby. A bit inconvenient but useful nonetheless. A good experience overall
