Quirky hotel

Quirky hotel. Really modern lobby and corridors but room needs a bit of work. Saying that it was a comfortable bed and that’s pretty much all I needed. The room decor was a flowery pink wallpaper and there was even a VHS player in the room! my only criticism would be the shower. It’s not directly over the bath, it’s more like a wet room but the shower is to the side of the bath tub, makes it quite difficult. Great location, minutes from lively area with restaurants, bars and shops. Kyoto itself is a great place.

Great location along the canal

Reasonably priced, comfortable and very centrally located. The decor is dated though.

Small tidy hotel, value for money near Gion Kyoto

We stayed in Kyoto for 4 nights, initially in the standard double before our bathroom light broke on the second night - they immediately upgraded us to the deluxe double for the rest. The rooms are identical except the deluxe is slightly bigger and better bathroom. The staff were excellent and can't be faulted. The location is good, in the heart of the "party" or club area - plus close to Gion and public transport.

Pros: Location great, close to Gion, transport and club/bar area. Staff are excellent. Rooms are generous, tidy and good facilities. Midday checkout handy!

Cons: Noise could be an issue due to street bars, especially in standard double. Deluxe double no issues, except WIFI was weak.

Location: 5 min walk to bus/train - then every shrine/tourist spot in Kyoto. If you like food and clubs, you're in the heart of it!
