My wife loved staying there and it is convenient
It was close to Toji temple. 7-8 minds from the train stop. 1 train stop from Kyoto station. Calm area. Great service and easy going.

Nifty Spot
A good location that is right on the local bus routes and a fairly easy walk from Kyoto station (barring one large pedestrian overpass). Having Toji temple right outside the door and down the street was really cool. In-room laundry was a blessing and they provided a rack for drying, which was fun. The desk folk we encountered were all bilingual, which made chatting and getting settled easy. We checked our bags upon arrival (we arrived before check-in) and discovered upon returning that they’d just been left in the entryway largely unattended for 7 hours in full view of the street. Japan is very safe, but even so we were a little uneasy with that - we would have appreciated them being moved into the office. Bedding is traditional futons on tatami, so if you’re not used to that it can be a bit firm. I was fine. We had three futons in our room, so my partner doubled-up after the first night and was then fine also. Considering the hotel was built recently, the lack of a lift feels like an oversight. It’s only three stories, but if you have mobility issues it could be frustrating. The only other issue we had was that we found our room smelled a bit as if something had got wet and never quite dried properly. Everything seemed clean and fresh, but we noticed the smell every time we re-entered the room. It faded from notice after you’d been in a little bit, but it was noticeable for us. Other than that, a lovely spot. A good closet and kitchenet with pots and pans.

Do consider putting up a notice at entrance door
Property still new or very well kept. Very happy with everything. It would be helpful if the property could put a sign at their entrance door for guests who arrive before 10am that they can enter the property and wait at reception area. Many guests assumed the entrance door is locked and waited outside the property.

The GREAT Pagoda Experience
The Pagoda Experience was great! The front desk gave us great recommendations and hotel was walking distance to Toji Temple. Only downfall is there are no elevators, so you need to carry your luggage up and down narrow flights of stairs.

Pleasant stay
The place is a little on the small side and located quite a distance from the tourist areas but the hotel is clean and modern and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

An arty haven in Kyoto.
Excellent stay. The accommodation was more like n apartment with all of the mod cons required - cooker, microwave, fridge, washing machine, dryer. No TV, but that was no problem and the hotel was located near an exceptional temple too. When we checked in the Receptionist was extremely helpful and showed to our room, explained how to use the facilities (air conditioning was particularly welcome) and showed us where the local supermarket was. He even gave us tourist advice on what to see and how to use the local transport - (a day bus pass only cost 500 Yen and is brilliant value). We loved the hot l and would definitely stay there again and the room price was excellent.
