Individual guest reviews

  • Near the metro station and just next to Subway. Excellent value for price, free Internet in lobby and the staff were very helpful at all times. The rooms were fine, the refrigerator had been cleaned out for guest use, not a minibar and the buffet breakfast was good.

    Small tub/shower in tiny bathroom.

  • The location is perfect, just a few blocks from a major bus stop and internet is free and long distance call is relatively inexpensive. The hotel has a small shop selling sandwiches and snacks, the Starbucks in the lobby is also helpful for breakfasts. The price is fair and the staff are fine, room is clean.

    Bathroom was tiny.

  • Excellent location in downtown Kyoto and near subway station. Good value for money, the price was very reasonable and the free internet access in the lobby was extremely handy. The staff were friendly and our room was fine.

    Hard, cheap mattress, tiny pillow and poor selection of breakfast choice in the buffet.

  • Excellent location, good value and the staff were really really helpful. The bed was comfortable.

    The room was clean, fairly large, and afforded us a nice view of the city, lobby was always hot and uncomfortable, the bathroom was also tiny.
