    Fantastic location in the heart of Kawaramachi.

    Amazing location. Staff were very pleasant and professional and were always wearing a smile 😃 Appointments look a little dated, however, for this price point you can overlook that. Everything worked just fine as expected. Absolutely LOVED the late check out time (12:00). Too many places keep rolling back the time and has gone to 11 am and most now are 10 am. Those that are sensitive to outside noises will not like the sound of the revelers on the streets of Kawaramachi which go on into the wee hours of the morning. This is centrally located after all. You are within 3-5 minutes walking distances to all of the most delicious foods Kyoto has to offer, and many train and bus lines as well. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, book somewhere else. If you value convenience, variety, helpful staff and great price, this is your place. I’ll certainly be back.

    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.
