Fabulous 8.8 From 954 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
The semi double room is perfect for solo travel. It does not feel like the typical tiny hotel rooms in Japan. The room layout was well thought out utilizing every nook and cranny. The front staff were very accommodating and they speak English quite well. I wish I could have stayed longer. Location is top notch, public transportation and shopping are nearby. I would definitely stay here again.

Highly recommend, great location
The location of this hotel is truly amazing. Only 5 mins walk away from Nishiki Market and lots of local restaurants in the area. The room is a bit small but it is sufficient and very clean. I would highly recommend it

Small rooms but a fantastic location
The rooms are obviously quite small, but for a traveling couple wanting to stay right by downtown Kyoto, you couldn’t ask for a better location. Lovely service, very clean rooms with a compact but nice bathroom, and a surprisingly comfortable bed.

Great location for transport, food and shopping
Great place to stay in! Had a good 2 nights stay for visiting the Bamboo forest and the shopping district nearby the hotel. Overall great experience with good comfort and cleanliness in the room. Utilized the laundry to keep my clothes fresh, easy to use with instructions. Umbrellas available for borrow during rainy days too. Shopping streets all around with very good food.

The staff was excellent -very friendly and helpful. They helped me find medical treatment for a problem called ahead to arrange everything and gave me easy directions to get to the hospital. The hotel is very clean and modern and located very near to transportation and shopping. Will definitely stay there again.

Great Staff
Central hotel just off the main shopping street so very quiet. The staff were amazingly helpful and friendly. I had a problem with luggage being delivered to the hotel and they resolved it for me - excellent service!!! The triple room we stayed in was compact but comfy. Only downside was no cafe on site (which we knew) but plenty of choices nearby. Handy for the subway back to the main station.
