a lovely hotel, the staff were fantastic, my room was very nice, also it is just a short walk to Kyoto station, plenty of shops, this hotel is very well situated, I had a great time on my visit there.

It's a very short walk from Kyoto Station and close to many eating places. The area is quiet but safe.

Great hotel close to Kyoto station, everything was really nice.

Excellent location, right across the street from the Kyoto train station, and all of the most popular sites are all within 3 miles. We were greeted very warmly by staff at the door...then when we checked in, all the staff behind the counter were very sweet and helpful. I found it interesting that most of the staff were European. It seems they have some sort of exchange program to allow European young adults a chance to work there, while being able to speak several languages. The hire was very clean, nice room sizes, great bathrooms...the whole vibe makes you feel like you’re a millionaire.

Great breakfast. Great shower and water pressure. Nice modern clean room.

Hotel staff are very professional and friendly. Hotel was beautiful! Great location!

new hotel near Kyoto train station. comfortable and clean room. hotel staff is helpful and friendly

Friendly staff and great room. Close to train station.

Excellent location next to Kyoto station. Gorgeous hotel, spacious room.

This is a great hotel near the Kyoto rail station. The room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable. The room was the most spacious and comfortable of all the rooms we stayed at in Japan. The bathroom was particularly nice.

The hotel staff was extremely helpful. It was raining most of the time we were there so we got umbrellas from the hotel. The hotel staff went out in the rain to hail us a cab. They recommended restaurants and advised us on the best ways to get there. They helped us with sites to visit, and getting there by public transportation, which was a little challenging in the beginning. Inside the train station there are restaurants, stores and even a wine shop.
