Very Good8.0
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.

Lovely Cheap Hotel in Fantastic Location
Easy to find little hotel, and amazing value for money considering the area. Me and my partner often heard noises from outside our room at times, leading us to believe the soundproofing isn’t amazing, but other than that we have zero complaints. It’s just a short walk away from travel options around the city, including many of the importang tourist spots! It’s also right by the downtown area, meaning there’s plenty of places to eat, drink, and shop! In fact, it’s so close to all that stuff we never traveled out in the evening time. Definitely recommend for a young traveling couple, although do keep in mind that Japanese hotel rooms run a little on the small side but it’s still very much manageable.
