Stayed here for 4 nights from 24th Dec - 28th Dec, just myself and my husband||Pros:|- staff very friendly and spoke good English|- best thing is the location - it’s right outside Kyoto station (Central exit) and both station and bus terminals are all from here so it’s very handy getting around|- nicely decorated hotel lobby|- rooms were equally decorated quite nicely (dark wood features)|- well priced rooms for Kyoto for 4 nights (paid less than £300 for 2 people)||Cons:|- rooms were small and the bathroom even smaller, there is only one tile square to stand on between the toilet, shower and bath tub|- because bathroom was small and the way the drainage system worked the bath mat and anything else left on the floor or in the bath tub would get very wet - not enough places to hang towels or bath robes|- bins equally as small too, often had to remove the bin lids to get anything in them|- limited wardrobe/ drawer space|- hotel helped hold our suitcases for us for 2 nights whilst we went to Osaka at a rate of ¥1000 per suitcase, this worked out cheaper than the lockers but we did the same in Tokyo for a week and they held it for free||Overall rooms were small however as we weren’t staying too long it was ok for us as we had brought 2 suitcases and 1 cabin size. If we had brought all our suitcases (an additional 2 we left in Tokyo) the room would be way too small to even put them in the room. Would stay again purely based on the great location and ease for travel around Kyoto.

Overall great value for quality and location. Convenient getting off the JR line especially when carrying a suitcase around. Laundry service is expensive compared to coin operated machines which are a bit far. Staff has some folks with decent English that can help with check-in.
