Our room was clean and comfortable and generous room size for a Japanese hotel. We booked twin beds as we heard beds were small but they had them together which made a king size. The gorgeous French bakery next door was a huge breakfast bonus! We would definitely stay here again as the location is perfect.

I stayed for a fortnight,staff were helpful and the hotel was central to shops and transport.maybe it could do with a renovation but I felt that I had value for my money. I nearly cancelled because of a previous bad review but I'm glad that I didn't.

It's a business hotel. Expect that level of utility. Small, cramped room and bathroom, but it has everything you need. The price by itself is reasonable, but when you consider the location, it's a good deal. I stayed with my wife, which compounded the feeling of crampedness, but if you're by yourself, it's likely a lot easier. This hotel was the overflow from the main one, which is slightly closer to the station. You could also buy a breakfast for about a 1200 yen (I think). Basic Japanese breakfast (because it caters to Japanese businessmen). Not a bad deal. I can eat it. I just prefer what I'm used to, and went elsewhere. I only stayed one night, because that's all I was in town for, and this hotel fit the bill. If I had to stay 3 nights, I would likely go where there's a little more room. I wouldn't have the location, but it wouldn't be an issue for a long stay.

upon arriving you first walk into the lobby the design is stunning. staff were friendly and helpful with any requests. upon checking-in a staff member will escort us to the room we would be staying in. upon entering the room the staff member will walk us thru are room and what we have available to us during our stay. the washing machine in the room is all Japanese writing. the staff member walked us thru how to use it correctly as we were English speaking guests. the staff speak very good and fluent English. they are helpful in every way and i highly recommend this hotel for the friendliness of the staff and the stunning design of the hotel. if you are use to western style food i do not recommend the breakfest that is included in the price.

The maintenance is superb and clean. Comfortable movement of space especially good breathing space with balcony. We manage our own meals well with the kitchenette. And self-service laundry machines too. Television channels are good. One of the best locations in the heart of Kyoto city.
The only improvement we would suggest is:
1: wall hooks to hang dry our towels for reuse and for jackets.
2: advise on the freezer settings for our fridge, cause my ice-creams don't freeze much, but even though it melts soft Japanese ice-creams are heavenly good.
Overall, excellent. Arigato gozaimshita!

Hotel is just right across the train station, metro bus station and shopping mall. Very convenient for travelers who will be using the train and bus to go around Kyoto. An iconic site/landmark but the hotel needs renovation. Breakfast buffet was good.

A popular beach destination northeast of Kyoto, Otsu is the capitol city of the Shiga Prefecture and sits on the shores of Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan. Out in the harbor, enormous fountains spray high into the sky. Visitors enjoy hiking to the Enryaku-ji monastery on the summit of Mt. Hei, the birthplace of Japanese Buddhism and site of a battle between a shogun and warrior monks.
