Positive Reviews

Some great views to be had

Some of the rooms here - particularly those on the hotel's upper floors - provide some splendid vistas of the city. Guests with rooms on the upper floor get to see the Kyoto Tower flash and blink at them before they turn in each night!

Very peaceful at night

When compared with the centre of Kyoto, this is a pretty quiet place to lay ones head and get some rest. Guests don't have to worry very much about throbbing expressways or busy train tracks keeping them awake at night in this part of town.

Some very good breakfast options

There are a number of different breakfast options provided here so, unlike so many other Japanese hotels operating within this price range, you can look forward to enjoying a bit of variety during your stay. Guests have found the lighter breakfasts to be far more filling than they first appear.

Negative Reviews

Quite far from city centre

This hotel is quite far away from the city centre and most other sights/attractions. Indeed, most things worth seeing are a bus or train ride away; unfortunately the buses run irregularly at weekends and stop altogether at around 9:30 p.m.

Toilets are very small

Be prepared for a bit of an adventure and a few knee bumps whenever you need to 'go' - the toilets here really are very small, which caused taller and bigger guests some discomfort.

No English TV channels available

Guests noticed that most urban Japanese hotels manage to provide at least one English language channel (normally BBC News) on their TVs. Not here though; at this hotel it's Japanese or nothing!
