    A clean hotel with stone-wall faced staff. They can't smile, it seems that they haven't got their pay-check for the month.

    the room is small and old, but it's quite clean. Overall it's okay to live but definitely won't give you a surprise when you check-in. the wifi network is very bad at night time.

    Friendly hotel reception, clean room but would have expected a much larger room on an executive floor. Though location is a short distance from Kyoto Station but the high frequency of their shuttle bus helps.
