Great Location to visit Kyoto and the surrounding region
Reviewed 5 days ago

The first thing about traveling Japan was that I wanted a place to stay that was close to major transportation. This hotel is perfect as it right above Kyoto station, however I did have to rely on tourist information to find the right exit. The station is huge with numerous exits.

The room was comfortable with the bathroom containing a shower/bath and a gizmo Japanese toilet with more buttons than the space shuttle.

The staff were very professional and courteous during the stay from check-in, breakfast at the buffet, the bar as well as the concierge desk.

The best thing about the hotel was the location. I used the trains and Kyoto subway line to get to visit Fushimi Inari Taisha, Arishiyama, Potoncho, Kinkakuji and the township of Kurama.

Wonderful location

We stayed here for two nights and the location cannot be beat. The hotel is comfortable, but some of the rooms are a bit dated and tired. The breakfast buffet was a nice surprise in abundance. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed here on a family trip to Japan. The hotel is right above the train station and is super convenient to all amenities. Rooms are a very good size - especially for Japan and well designed for privacy if you are sharing the room as a twin. Staff were very attentive - highly recommend this hotel.

Excellent location

The location is great since it's in the Kyoto station. It's convenient to take JR, Shinkansen, and Kintetsu Railway. There are many good restaurants in and near the station/hotel. It is also a good place for shopping, too, since there is a Isetan department store and the Porta underground shopping mall that has numerous shops and restaurants. When we go to Kyoto, we always stay there. The rooms are nice and the service people are very friendly and polite.
