    4 nights sightseeing in Kyoto
    Great location, easy to get to from the main Kyoto JR station by subway to Karasuma or via taxi (1000¥). Bus stops across the road, Nishiki market and supermarkets nearby. Staff very helpful and polite, knowledgeable about local area. Hotel was clean and modern. Room was also clean and modern, However the only downside was the size of the room, it was really small and we were unable to even open our bags, let alone leave them somewhere that we didn’t have to climb over them. Bathroom size was standard for Japan.

    Petite but well placed - would stay here again
    Ideal location, very accessible, lots of shopping and eateries nearby. The rooms are small but big enough for a couple (just) and would be perfect for single travellers.

    Brilliant value for money in a great location.
    Fabulous hotel at an amazing price! Well situated in the centre of Kyoto so very handy for all the major sites. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable, with an excellent range of toiletries. Will definitely stay there again!

    Fantastic Location, I can't stress how perfect this hotel was to subways, the main shopping streets and all other stuff surrounding the hotel. The staff were always so friendly and helpful, they went above and beyond to help us even with the language barrier. The room was comfy and the bathroom was clean! The bed one was one of the softest we slept on during our holiday. If we ever make it back to Kyoto, we will defiently being staying here again.
