Awesome location!

by bobbysf17 on 28 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

High lights: 1. Awesome location in the middle of the tourist attractions. Right at the edge between the modern busy stores / restaurants and the old temple streets 2. Reasonable English at the front desk and a very smooth check-in. Friendly staff 3. Friendly housekeeping and clean rooms Low lights: 1. Really tiny. Our room was just slightly bigger than the full size bed and the bathroom is also tiny 2. Hallway and appliances seemed a little outdated Conclusion: Great if you don't mind i...

Excellent location

by Alpine a on 11 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

Great service in an excellent location about 2minutes walk to Gion Corner and only a few blocks away from the Metro, Yasaka shrine and the Minamiza theatre. An easy walk to the historic Gion district and the tea houses performed at by Kyoto's famous Geisha. The rooms are very small but if you are out and about seeing the sights of Kyoto then this is not an issue. We have stayed here a few times and have been happy with our stay both times.

Comfortable and convenient

As other reviewers state, the rooms are small. But we knew this going on as the room size was stated. I recommend a twin room for two people ( two twin beds vs one larger bed) since this allows for better 'traffic' flow for two people. Comfortable beds and they provided us each with a yukata and slippers. Room was clean and there was no trace of smoking smell in our non-smoking room. Bathroom was spotless and can best be described as efficient - lots of function in a very small space. Two peo...

Great great location and honest staff

Came here for my visit in Kyoto. The location is centred with almost all tourist spot. It is accessible by bus and with 5 mins walk from the subway. It ka also about 3 minutes walk on the main street of Gion called 'Hanamikoji'... Ive been to other Apa hotel and this is one, i loved it. It is spacious and they gave me the highest floor overlooking to the temple close by. The hotel is neat and clean with dresser, beauty mirror, small fridge, tv, hairdryer and stuff on making tea. What impresse...

Comfortable and Convenience

by 亭蓉 陳 on 02 Nov 2016 (Family Traveller)

Good choice if you want to explore the area of Shijo and Gion. The train station of Keihan railway (Gion-Shijo) is nearby.I can even see Hanamikoji, meiko and geisha by my window, that's amazing! Just like you have a live painting in your room! We reserved a semi-double room and a single room, both of them are clean and well-equipped, also, the staff are hospitable. The space is not spacious, but it's not a big problem to replace a opened 25" suitcase in semi-double room, and 23" suitcase might...
