Hotel M's Est Shijo - Karasuma, was a wonderful stay. Great location and very helpful staff. They tried their best to speak English with my partner and me and were always available to assist. The room was very clean, the bathroom was pristine, and had good water pressure. The bed was very comfortable and the A/C unit worked perfectly. The location of the hotel was amazing, just a minutes walk from Nishiki, the subway station, and numerous bus stops for easy access to the entire city.

This location was close to buses and main road for shopping like Nishiki’s Market. Room was smaller than average Japan hotel rooms. Bathroom space had just enough but nothing more. I’d say this place is good for short stays. Found the blanket had a stain under duvet cover. Interior of the room looks modern though. Customer service was ok. Overheard that they don’t call taxis.
