Large hotel, very clean, efficient service. Small room as typical for Japan but everything provided. Location central, access for basic amenities, buses, trains good. Reception staff very helpful. Would book again.

reliable hotel chain
stayed here many times already, the unizo brand means clean, modern and gives you a unique Kyoto feel. Locations are usually very good near shopping etc. only downside is rather small rooms which is typical in Japan anyway.

Hot summer in Kyoto
It was a clean new hotel. Room was tiny but comfortable. There were too many things( air cleaner, pants presser, stool etc.) and made the room even smaller. The location was very convenient to go anywhere.

Great location and value
Nice clean room in a very good area. Can walk to subway and there are bus stops right out front. I also walked to pontocho alley for dinner and nishiki market. It's a great location and was a great value.

Exceptional 10.0
I have stayed at this hotel before and am familiar with the small restaurants in the neighborhood. The only think I don't like is the breakfast at Tullys. I am fond of the breakfast buffets at some of the other hotels. Also the staff are supposed to speak English but this is not true here. For the usual phrases used in checking in.....they understand. Anything off the usual ......too frustrating for both parties.However this does not mean I won't stay there again! I know what to expect and am happy with what is there!
