A place to rest your head
Start to finish was easy. Self check in was easy to do. Room was clean. Check out was just as easy. When all you need is a place to sleep this was a great room. It was also an efficiency unit . Stove , fridge , laundry. The only thing I found unusual was the TV was in the bathroom. WiFi was so so. Location for visiting temples in Kyoto was excellent .

Interesting to have a non-manned hotel. But tricky to figure it out for some of the guests. Really nice area though and really nice

Great for the location
Got 2 rooms for a total of 7 family members. The check-in process can be a bit frustrating as it's all done via an on-site iPad rather than through a human. Use the check-in code you receive via email to begin the process and then have the iPad take pictures of either the passports or Japanese residency cards of each individual. Once you do this, you get 1 code to enter the building and another code to enter your room. Unfortunately, I never received confirmation emails that contained the check-in codes for our 2 rooms, but luckily the phone in the lobby dials directly to the main office where an employee was able to help us check in. The rooms themselves are not your typical hotel rooms. Indeed, the building was an apartment building. No TV (I brought a projector, so it wasn't a problem for us), but you got separate rooms for the toilet and bath, fridge/microwave/washer/kitchenette, and lots of amenities. Rooms are clean and very secure. Doesn't have much floor space, but what budget hotel in Japan does? Pricing is competitive when you consider amenities, but standard hotels may be cheaper/better for some. Location is top-notch, a 2-minute walk from the Higashiyama metro station and within close proximity to Yasaka Shrine, Heian Shrine, and Kiyomizudera and the adjacent shopping streets to the south. Cons are the absolutely abysmal Wi-Fi (luckily I have a Japanese phone number) and lack of outlets for charging. Recommend you bring an extension cord.

Has NO staff! Would not recommend.
Once inside, the place was good, but be careful: This hotel has NO staff. You have to check-in on your own with an iPad that's on the front desk. I could not get into the place after I checked in. It was separated with an automatic door locked with a keypad. I didn't understand how to use the dialing pad. It was so frustrating. I called them on the phone that was on the front desk but I couldn't get in. Finally, after I got mad, they offered to go to the hotel to explain how to use it but they would take over 30 minutes to get there. I was very upset. Finally after around 30 minutes I managed to open the door before the staff arrived. Although I got a great deal on this hotel, I would NOT recommend it.

잘 다녀왔어요
위치가 좋습니다 기온거리를 걸어서 갈 수 있고 교토 어디든 가기 편합니다 로컬 시장내에 위치해 있는데 조용한 편입니다 호텔이라고 하기엔 시설이 모호합니다 좋은 air b&b 수준이라 생각하시면 됩니다 가격대비 가성비는 최고라고 생각합니다 셔틀은 미리 예약해야 이용할 수 있고, 온풍기는 좀 기다려야 나옵니다 바닥에 먼지 많고 온풍기엔 곰팡이 있습니다
