Decent hotel, rooms are larger than expected for the price. Coffee machine was a nice touch. Staff is all super friendly, 5 stars for the staff & service. Great location, a little far from subways but steps away from a famima, 7/11 & two different grocery markets. The cons are: TVs need upgrading. Could not screen share onto the tv. This was not a big deal though as you are not staying in your room much during a Kyoto trip. The time you spend in the room though is mostly sleeping, and this was not too comfortable for us as the hotel decided to switch the central A/C to heating in mid october which was still 25°C most of the day. The reason was "as many customers have complained about it being too cold in the rooms" but i dunno, other hotels we stayed at had newer central a/c + heating systems where both were an option if you needed them. They provided a fan/air filter in the room, but it isnt enough with the trapped in heat. They suggested to open the windows if we were hot, but that mesnt too many mosquitos and other bugs coming in at night. These uncomfortable sleeps are really the only downside. Oh and that you had to pay for the room cleaning. Everything else was top notch and would check this hotel out again maybe during colder seasons. If you dont mind the heat, it should be fine for you. Location, room size and service alone is 5 stars.

Decent room space for two smaller people. Clean. Large tv. Deep tubs for soaking. Right by a grocery market. Massages around the corner (Don’t end up in a brothel). There is a beer machine inside, coffee and ice on second floor. Smoking section out back on 1st floor. Not far from transit. We were only there for two days but we didn’t have any issues.
