Exceptional 10.0
Must stay in this hotel.
Convenience and near to station. There is a Starbucks at the lift lobby. The room is in super clean condition. The down side is the room is very warm during our stay. Maybe due to the cold weather outside. They include breakfast and have e wide spread of food.

Just right outside the exit of shijo subway station, underpass linked to Karasuma and Kawarachi Station. Lift from subway is just few steps away from hotel at Exit 4.

Fair 4.0
disappointing stay
Check in was efficient. Entrance to lobby looked grand but room was not. Staff did not seem helpful when I asked about directions to market (which turn out to be shopping street). Beverages were also not provided in the lobby as advertised. Toilet was rather small.

Great location!
Great location, right next to exit 4 or the subway. Walking distance to Nishiki market and many shopping such as the Daimaru etc. Hotel is clean and our room is spacious enough for 2 us, especially when you are in Japan. The entrance of the hotel may not be clear, it is in the middle of a shop and starbucks. Will recommend this hotel!

Convenient hotel with tiny bathroom
We stayed for 3 nights. The location was great, convenient for shopping, sightseeing and transportation. On the other hand, the bathroom was unbelievably tiny. The buthtub, sink and toilet were in 5'x3.5'? If you drop something in the bathroom floor, you would hit your head on something to pick it up.The shower was very strong which is excellent though. I would not stay there just because the bathroom was so uncomfortable.
