Positive Reviews

Spacious rooms

Hotel rooms in cities can be quite small and rooms in Japan even more so. However, rooms at this hotel are an exception to that as they are really spacious. There is plenty of room for all guests and luggage in comfort, with space to spare.

Great location

Guests say that this hotel provides them with a great base for exploring all that Kyoto has to offer as it is close to bus stops and the subway. It is only a short walk to a main shopping area with lots of good places to eat nearby.

Super service from the staff

The staff are very friendly and polite. They are attentive and happy to be of help with anything you may need, whether it is booking restaurants and calling taxis. They are very efficient and guests say the level of service they receive really makes a difference.

Negative Reviews

Lacking in some facilities guests expected

Some guests were disappointed that the hotel does not have an Onsen, the traditional Japanese communal bath. It also did not have some other facilities that guests thought a hotel at this level would have, such as a fitness centre, sauna and pool.

Mixed reports of the buffet breakfast

While many guests enjoy their breakfast and say it is delicious, others are not as impressed saying it was just okay. Some thought that the choices available for international travellers was quite limited, although the Japanese breakfast impressed more.

Hotel is past its prime

Some guests said that the hotel was looking a bit faded and old fashioned and so it would benefit from some refurbishment. Carpets in particular were noted as being stained while some of the room facilities were thought to be dated.
