Score from 142 reviews Very good
The location of the hotel is superb. It is right beside the Yasaka Shrine and close to gion. If walk for about 10-15 minute there is a lots of shopping malls as well. Furthermore you can take buses for a your to Ginkakuji route or another bus to Kinkakuji and the bus stop is only 1 minute away. The room is very large, compare to other japanese room and the bathroom is very nice. In total a great hotel with excellent location and affordable price. Strongly recommend if you are staying in Kyoto.
Staff wonderfully friendly and helpful. Fantastic position in Gion. Bed comfortable, large rooms with separate bath/shower room from toilet/bathroom.
Unable to get lighter bedding, like a light blanket to put inside duvet cover instead of winter weight duvet. Hence overheated every night despite turning air conditioner to lowest setting of 17 degrees ( which actually wasn't cooling to that level). Was advised to open window as well which we did.
the location, its close to the main tourist attractions. there are convenient stores around the hotel at night
hotel is using the key to open the door and only one copy is available. it also requires to return the key to the front desk every time you go out, which is really troublesome if there are more than one people staying in the room.
Big nice room, great location, the building is not too big, so it feels personal.
Very pleasant. Great location, huge bathroom and good-sized room, spotless. Interesting and plentiful breakfast buffet options, helpful staff.
Location was stellar.
- I spent $750 (US) per night and it didn't include a parking spot. They were full. The spot I found cost me $183 (US) for 18hrs, staff was not up front on the cost of parking in the surrounding area. - I like hard beds, this bed was excessively hard. - Poor room air circulation. - Breakfast buffet is not on par with price of stay. A few tables setup with some plates /warmers on them? Out of key breakfast items with slow /zero restocking. Staying here was an epic mistake - I feel like I've been robbed.
The room was rather spacious and clean with good bathroom facilities. The staff on the reception have good English and are very friendly and helpful. Every morning they explained me the most convenient ways to get to the sights I wanted to see, and even checked the websites and maps for me. The location is good - close to Yasaka jinjia, Chion-in and Gion. Nishiki market, Kiyomizudera temple and several other popular tourist sights are also within a walking distance.
The equipment in the bathroom was a little old, not all the functions of jucuzzi worked. The location of the hotel is good, but not perfect: it is very close to different tourist attractions, but there are not many not too expensive eating places near the hotel. Gion is rather quiet in the evening, most restaurants close at 8-9 p.m., and there are no bars or other places to spend an evening.
The staff were young but helpful when they were there. It is more like a Holiday inn express with small rooms. Just a place to stay but a great location for exploring gion. Bathroom was tiny but modern and very functional.
Our room was barely big enough to turn around in, but it was nice enough. Not much of a lobby and no real hotel services.
The location in Gyon is excellent - all of the Gyon sites are nearby. Rooms are very large by Japanese standards. Very comfortable beds and quiet.
Though room was supposed to be non-smoking, it smelled of cigarette smoke the first night which was unfortunate. First night was muggy and the a/c didn't work. Staff said it was inoperative on whole 5th floor. Staff wouldn't help us book a restaurant by phone (they said they didn't offer this services though many hotels do).
Close to Gion:-) Nice and very helpfull staff.
To far from metro station:-(
I asked for a high floor, nice view and we got first floor with poor view....booking apologized but with no explanation .....
small room but managable
Good location ,clean, very near and easy to view point .
In all fairness, this hotel had still room free when nobody else did, we booked it last minutes on the long weekrnd of 3rd November. It is close to the touristic areas, but it wasnot a good value for the money in my opinion. Yes the rooms are big, but it this really worthed a double bill? At the end we went to another hotel half the price close to Shijo station that was way more convenient.
The Wifi did not work, even in the lobby, most of the time. Not close to any train station. They ask us to pay all in advance.
Great location and a wonderful, very complete, Western style (& japanese/asian) breakfast.
Very spacious room, amazing tub, spotlessly clean, bright and airy. Extensive breakfast buffet choices, excellent location around the corner from Yasaka Shrine. Helpful staff.
Was all good!
Close to Gion Corner and the temples. Our room was so good, the beds were huge and the view from our window overlooked temple grounds, was lovely. Highly recommend this hotel.
By Japanese standards service was poor service - partly due to language difficulties. For example there is no laundry cleaning service in the hotel - reception gave me a map in japanese, the wrong instructions and, when I found the recommended laundry it was merely a few machines with no service.
Bus stop 100mts from Hotel, takes you to Kyoto station and the nearby Temples , 5mins away. Right on the main strip at Gion , really well situated for being in the thick of things. Good size rooms and great bathrooms.
Bed and toilet are good and big enough considering that it is in Japan
Poor internet signal. It has no password requirements so most likely even the the neighbors are getting/using the signal so the forgettable speed!
The staff are very helpful
There's no english tv channel, all japanese without subtitle. And the keyroom is very old school
Location was good.
Everything was good. The breakfast was the best on our trip to japan.
Long bus ride from train station but you do have to learn the buses to get around Kyoto. Stop by tourist info for a map of the bus system.
