Dissatisfied room but good location
The hotel is located on the shinkasen side of the Kyoto station and is a five minute walk from there. The hallways and carpet to our floor appear to be a bit dated and although it is a non-smoking floor, I thought there was a weird smell when I stepped off the elevator. The room is of typical size and really basic washroom amenities were provided. Face wash, body lotion, cotton tips and other items can be found in a self-serve area in the lobby. The biggest problem I have with the room is the temperature. It was about 23-24°C. Turning on the air conditioner to the coldest setting with the fan level at the highest level did not cool the room down. Ten minutes later, we just popped open the window and let the breeze in, which is way better than whatever cooling system they have in the room. We discovered our neighbours had their windows open too, so it's not an isolated incident to our room. With the heat in the room, it wasn't a comfortable sleep for us. Not to mention the subpar quality of the mattress and pillows! The hotel area is very convenient for travelling around Kyoto. There are many buses near by as well as the train station. There is an Aeon mall nearby as well as plenty of restaurants to choose from inside the train station. I would recommend visiting the ramen level up on top of the Isetan building though! The value of the room is great given its location, but I probably won't be staying here again with all the things I've encountered...

El Inn Kyoto is a great hotel, Onsen was nice after a long train trip. Nice easy location for access to the city.

Save yourself - stay elsewhere
Honestly the worst hotel experience of my life. There isn’t room here to go into everything that was wrong, but the one that put me over the edge was how the staff managed one particular problem. My room was boiling lava hot when I checked in, like opening an oven door. I opened the window (it’s November) and turned on the air full blast, but it didn’t help...there was clearly something amiss with the heating system in this room. I went downstairs, and after about five minutes of explanation, the manager finally told me that all the rooms are the same temperature, so basically get over it (my words, but that was the gist). I persisted, but I got nowhere...they treated me like I was crazy, and essentially called me a liar (again, my words). But, there was no way I would be able to sleep in that room, so I kept on until finally they agreed to give another room. This took about 20 minutes. He came up to my old room to experience the jungle temperature for himself (my suggestion). “It’s a little warm,” admitted there manager, and then started to run down a list of all the possible things I could have done to make it so hot. Poor guy didn’t know what he was in for - a hot New Yorker who had just been called a liar, had lost a full hour of her single day in Kyoto dealing with nonsense, and was now being told it was her fault. Folks, this hotel is not worth your precious time. See also the attached photo - a sign that was in the room that embodies their approach to customer service.
