Really disappointing hotel

The location of the hotel is good with a metro Hankyu station and bus stops at about 30 meters. Not good for young people who want to be in direct contact with night life. Japanese rooms with futon which is very comfortable but you have to unfold everything in the evening to be able to sleep and fold everything in the morning if you want to have some place to have breakfast which is served in the room. Breakfast is from my point of view awful. You have three choices: sushi, bread or rice. It is not prepared at the hotel but ordered by the hotel I do not where, but it is not good. You do not even have something to drink. The view from the window of the room was terrible, we could see in the room of the neighbouring building, there were dead pigeons between the two buildings. So we had to leave the window closed everytime as well as the sliding panes that were used as curtains. There was no wardrobe so we had to leave everything in our luggage. I would not recommend this hotel. The only good point for me was the bathroom. I cannot judge the public baths as I did not use them.

Great place to stay in Kyoto

Central and easy to get to, just near the train station. Really comfy futon beds and quite a large room for Japan, Wonderful male and female communal bath downstairs. Would stay again but pass on the bento box breakfast.

Just OK

Stayed for 2 nights in a family room. Rooms and beds comfortable enough but bathroom tiny. Location very handy for transport to all the sights, so for that reason alone I would recommend it. Staff were helpful. Nice Japanese style baths on the ground floor. Wifi in lobby only. Rooms were not very inviting, though. If all you want is a place to crash, this is a good option. We stayed in cherry blossom season and found great difficulty finding a room in Kyoto at a sensible price. This was more than we paid in Tokyo, and we stayed in a fantastic place there, so this was a bit of a disappointment.

Very clean hotel. Beautiful facilities and close to rail and bus links. Bit pricey and a little way out of town - but nonetheless an excellent place to stay. The baths were terrific and very well looked after.

The staff were very friendly and

The staff were very friendly and spoke excellent English. The quality of the finishes and fittings was superb. We had actually booked for the wrong nights, but they just accepted it as a simple mistake! Very good location for most attractions. Overall, a real jewell of a hotel.

The Village Hotel, I guess, is

The Village Hotel, I guess, is somewhere between a western hotel and a ryokan, as it has an onsen-like bath, with separate facilities for men and women, although you also get a shower in the rooms. For a place that cost me over £200 per night, I was surprised at the lack of facilities on offer. There is no swimming pool and no gym and the breakfast is simply a bento box. I think it was this that I found least appealing, as the choices on offer in the bento boxes left me as a not-enthusiastic eater of eastern food before lunch, with only the western-style box. This contained a breakfast that could have been plane food, although, of course, the eggs and ham/bacon were cold. Breakfasts on a plane are usually to be avoided and so we avoided this breakfast after one attempt and bought our own food from the 7/11 across the way.

With 3 children (11, 10 and 4)

With 3 children (11, 10 and 4) we booked a large suite with a bathroom. Although small by western standards, the room was very comfortable. Breakfast was delivered to our doorstep and in individual boxes. Free high speed internet connection. Bedding was Japanese style i.e. tatamis. The hotel is within a short train ride or taxi ride away from most attractions. A good value for the money.

Japanese style hotel - you sleep

Japanese style hotel - you sleep on tatami and have to make your bed every evening by yourself. Very clean, very friendly people at the reception. We did not like the bento box breakfast. From my point of view very good location on the main street and very near to one of the important bus stations with very good connections to all part of th city.
