Good hotel

by Laura H on 16 Jan 2017 (Business Traveller)

The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room I wanted was not available for all of my stay but the staff accommodated me so I spent the first 2 nights in one room and the rest of the stay in the, cheaper, room I had originally wanted. The rooms were clean and well presented. The location is ideal, and there are washing machines available if you wish to do laundry. I'd definitely stay here again if I was visiting Kyoto.

The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. No frills but very satisfactory.

Central, Great Value

by Shannon L on 27 Oct 2016 (Business Traveller)

Clean, functional, small kitchen, English speaking staff, laundry facilities and great value. As most hotel rooms in Japan it is small but unless you are living in the hotel, who cares? We stayed for 2 1/2 weeks and found it a good central location, right next to a major subway station and all the major bus lines also cross the major intersection just to the south of the hotel. The French Restaurant is a plus -- the breakfasts are a great combination of Western food like bacon and eggs plus Japa...
