Very good location close to train station. This hotel has free shuttle from the station. We like food in the restaurant.

I liked the size of the room. It had more open space than the recent rooms we have stayed in. Nice to have a closet. Bathroom and shower were great.

Great, clean, helpful Quiet.. good location,, good water pressure,, helpful

Great location, clean and remodelled. Good breakfast, a bit pricey, but good selection of food.

Nice hotel for a short stay. Shuttle to/from Kyoto station a big plus for those with multiple luggage.

Great hotel within walking distance to Kyoto train station. There is a complimentary shuttle between the hotel and the train station (Hachijo exit) which is great if you have luggage and needing to go to the train station. Great breakfast with lots of selection, I meant A LOTS.

1.nice hotel close to kyoto station 2.staff are very friendly 3.wifi in room too slow

Everything was great..... except the WiFi (which was horrible)...

convenient location to train station,friendly hotel staff and convenient hotel shuttle service to train station.

Hotel was awesome, great location, room super clean and spacious. The only negative is poor WiFi connectivity.

Great location, very close to Tokyo Station. Provides free shuttle to and from Tokyo Station that leaves every 15 minutes. Nice facilities and friendly staff, on site breakfast is great.

5 stars for location since it's attached to the mito station, various stores and restaurants. 3 stars for staff because though some were very professional and nice, others seemed too timid and quiet to be working at the reception area. 2 for cleanliness because everything seemed up to date at first glance, but upon closer inspection of my room had tears in the wallpaper, stains on carpet etc. One big no no for me was that the toilet seat had what seemed to be dried splatters of urine all over. Had to tell the front desk to have someone come clean the bathroom. Also when I picked up the runner that goes across the bottom of the bed spread a lot of dust particles flew everywhere. Overall it's a bit aged and not the cleanest. If you're not bothered by that, it's a great location.

A little far from Kyoto station. But it is convenient because of shuttle bus. And free tea bag is good. Provide free bottle water and Capsule coffee Everyday
