small room breakfast opens too late at 8:30 AM
room is small, with no space for luggage. Breakfast is served at 8:30 AM which is too late for early travel. We paid for breakfast but couldn't enjoy. They should indicate that on booking. Requested refund but no response.

Good value for reasonable location
It was great, there was a clean room, was 8 minutes by bus to the kyoto station. Just only one thing, we ordered the English breakfast but there was not a tea, there was just a kettle. I asked for refund but nothing happened

Exceptional 10.0
Really satisfied overall. Room is not big but well-equipped, well-arranged, nice and clean. You can spend the night in the bath tube, watching TV :)) There's a washing machine inside the room. Family with children would like this :D It's quite near Aquarium. Only 1 km away from Kyoto station. there's a bus stop in front of the hotel, you could take bus to go to Kinkaku ji (If I remember correctly). Definitely book it again if I re-visit Kyoto
