Everything ok except room Wifi

During our last night stay at the hotel, Wifi was not functioning and we immediately called the attention of the front desk who was in denial even after 3 calls. It turns out that they didn't have anybody on duty who could remedy the problem or even reset the router supplying our wing. Wifi was working in the lobby but we didn't want to stay there wearing our pajamas. The management should have somebody knowledgeable about this things 24/7

Good location room for 4

The hotel is located close to 2 private railway lines (Keihan and Hankyu lines) and the Kyoto subway, within 5-15 minutes walking distance. This makes access to Osaka Itami airport and Osaka city itself very convenient, although the Hankyu line was slightly further away from the hotel than the Keihan line/Kyoto subway. The family room I booked for a travelling party of 4 was sufficiently big for us to walk around even with 4 big luggages. There were even 2 TV sets in the room! The toilet includes both a separate bathtub and shower, and provided Shiseido body foam, shampoo and conditioner. Other toiletries were adequate as well. Although the items sold at the vending machines along the hotel room corridor was slightly expensive, there was a Lawson and Family Mart convenience store in the area. The hotel was also located within the Kawaramachi downtown shopping district of Kyoto, so there was still much activity around to immerse in at night and a lot of food outlets to settle any food cravings. Check-in timing (2pm) was strictly adhered to, but if you arrive early you could deposit your luggage with the front desk and they could have them transported into your room after housekeeping was done. Overall, my friends and I had a good experience at this hotel.

Perfect central location

Polite, efficient staff (all departments) Fabulous breakfast buffet (included in price) Wi-fi in room a bit slow, but they have two desktop computers in lobby with printer if needed. Front desk very kind with suggestions for dinner out, tours, directions or anything you might need. We would definitely recommend this hotel, and if we ever return, would not hesitate to stay at this property!

impossible to sleep in

if you wish to sleep at this hotel make sure you request for rooms as far away from main road as possible when you book. otherwise on nightly basis, you will hear sirens about twice hourly. The hotel and the location is great though.

Good location

It's located well gion and the bars and restaurant areas. Great for sight seeing and for the subway and buses. The buses are great to get too and from Kyoto station, very frequent and reasonable (you do everything in reverse to the UK, Ie get on at the back, take a ticket and then exit & pay at the front of the bus). Room size was as expected for Japan but has everything you need with a good bath and shower. The only downside of this hotel was the AC- it didn't really cool very much we were given a fan but wasn't really cool enough for me.

Room was small.

We found the room reasonably comfortable but no cool airconditioning. They had heaters on. We had to turn it off and open the window for cool air. Unfortunately it was very noisy with the window open. Hotel should give some isntructions to people who are arriving by train as to where the hotel is situated and which exits to take. If we had known how to get to the hotel from the train station it would have been easy. We had to ask several people and not many people in Japan speak English. I was rather surprised. I thought it would have been more international and that nearly the world over, I have found people could reasonably communicate in English. But not in Japan. Overall the hotel was okay but too expensive for what they gave. For the price we paid which was approximately A$450 per night, we could have stayed in 5 star luxury in Sydney, Australia. We took a tour of Kyoto and was pleased with the tour.
