i love this hotel! it's conveniently located a 3mins walk away from kyoto station where there are lots of shopping, food, a bus interchange and trains at kyoto station that bring me anywhere i wish to go to. hotel is really clean, staff is friendly. i love how quiet my room is even though it's beside the road and right in front of the lift. i am very happy with my stay and would definitely come back again.

Don't stay here
The hotel wasn’t easy to find. It’s close to another APA hotel. We walked in and were given directions to our hotel which is a block behind it. The reception area stank of cooking oil and other smells coming from the restaurant in the building. Check-in was easy but slow. The corridors were dark. As soon as we entered the room, we were greeted by more smells of fried foods and exhaust from the nearby restaurants coming through our closed hotel window and a mildew smell from the bathroom. Our room was the Double Room with a double bed. The room itself is the tiniest we’ve had throughout our trip in Japan. There was barely any space to pull the chair out of the desk and no space for any luggage bigger than a carry-on. They disable air-conditioning for winter, so the room was really hot. The only remedy is to open the windows and let the stinky restaurant air in. We tried to ask for a room fan as other reviewers suggested. The hotel said they had no fans available and to open the windows. The bed only has one pillow per person. The hotel said they had no extra pillows. The bathroom was very tight, like an airplane bathroom but with a shower tub—not for large or tall guests. They’re the only hotel to provide shower caps. There’s a 7-Eleven next door and good restaurants close-by. Only a 10-minute walk to Kyoto Station. We booked for 4 nights but we immediately booked elsewhere for the rest of our stay in Kyoto. The hotel staff were helpful in booking a taxi. Check-out was easy.

Very good 8.0
The overall experience was good, location was good. When we first arrived at the hotel a trainee was a bit rude and didn't make us feel particularly welcome. All the other staff were very friendly though. The room is small and the shower is very small. I feel the room is a little expensive for what you get, but the location was very convenient.

The staff were surly and unhelpful. Too such an extent we complained to the manager. Definitely not typical of this chain of hotels
