Great hotel next to Kyoto Station
Excellent location very close from the central train station, clean and comfortable rooms, excellent staff, tasty breakfast. There was some on-going construction that made the entrance more difficult to find. We will definitely stay here again upon return to Kyoto.

Fair 4.0
Amazing.. on the outside ONLY
Where to begin... We arrived at the central station of Kyoto which is very close to the hotel which is really good. We then took a short walk to the hotel and it looks really nice on the outside (very fancy..). When we checked in we had some difficulties with the communication as the staff behind the reception only spoke English to a very limited degree. Still no problem so far.. we booked a nice room (not the cheapest standard room) and expected a decent room. However, when we checked into the room we were shocked... it was so tiny that even for Japanese standards they should be embarrassed. My wife and I could not move at the same time as the room was simply too small. We were in Tokyo before and that hotel room was smallish but a massive palace in comparison to this shoe box. Seriously, if you are looking for a really really tiny room then look no further but this was just another thing.. we then complained to the front desk and paid to get a slightly bigger room.. the problem is not so much that the room is tiny but that there is heaps of bulky unnecessary furniture in it as well. As a result of this trip I can only recommend you one thing.. book another hotel or suffer the consequences of feeling like a tuna fish in a tinned box.

TINY room.
It was very comfortable but SO TINY. I've had cabins on cruise ships that are bigger. Seriously, it was that small. Location was perfect, the room was very quiet.. but if I had it to do again, I might pick a different place for the money.
