    The Hotel is very good located, near the metro station, the shopping street and it was very clean and the staff was amazing gentle.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The room is cosy and to my surprise, it's bigger than I expected. The single bed is actually good for 2 persons. There's Starbucks on the ground floor which is connected to the hotel. Very convenient. From the entrance, you couldn't tell it's a hotel.

  • Single
    7.4

    location of the hotel was quite central. within a minute walk to the subway station. the single room was small though functional and clean. with starbuck (with wifi) at the lobby was a bonus.

    it would be great if the temperature of the room can be controlled.

  • Single

    Prompt service, very helpful and knowledgeable staff, excellent location in downtown Kyoto. It will be on my shortlist of hotles in my future visits to Kyoto.

    The air conditioner lacked a temperature control.
