Nice hotel

Nice hotel, around 5-min walk from Kyoto Station. Free shuttle bus service provided to Kyoto Station, making it convenient when you arrive and depart with your luggage. Staff were friendly and helpful though their English may be limited. They provide yutaka and use Shiseido shower products! Would be good if they have a safe in the room though.

Large Rooms

Hotel was a bit further from Train Station than expected, but still walking distance. Walked into hotel, was quite dated and the leaf pattern carpet was in quite bad condition. Went to checkin and the checkin staff member could not find our booking and said we needed to pay or contact website ourselves. After long discussion he finally managed to contact website himself and advised they did not receive the fax they normally would receive. Then went to the room, which was quite impressed as it very large with living area and spare toilet (not that we needed it). Would of been great for a family. Overall experience was okay, but next time would stay even closer to the train/bus station, as rely on public transport to see all the sites of Kyoto.

The hotel is a famous hotel with long history, as mentioned by Japanese friends. However, the hotel is a little old and worn. The hotel staff are polite and their service quick. The shuttle bus between the hotel and Kyoto station punctual and helpful. However, internet comes at cost and swimming pool is not free. Other than that, it is a good hotel and one should feel good staying in such a famed hotel.

Service was excellent and location was fantastic - only 3 minutes walk from the train station. As not many Japanese hotels do triples, there wasn't much choice and although this was a bit more expensive than we would've liked it was a lovely hotel, very clean and functional. We have absolutely no complaints and would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Kyoto.

Nice hotel. A short walk from Kyoto Station. This hotel also provides shuttle service from Kyoto Station to the Hotel & vice versa. I just had to find out where the shuttle stop was!

I stayed three nights. Great location near Kyoto station and free shuttle service was very helpful. My only annoyance was that the free internet was landline only (no WiFi). Alternatively, it would be great if the PCs in the lobby were free.

An excellent hotel in a very handy

An excellent hotel in a very handy location. You can get buses to all the major tourist attractions from kyoto station for just 220 yen. The hotel is a two block walk from the station, or you can catch the free shuttle bus which runs about every 20 minutes. The hotel offered five star service, has nine restaurants and bars, and was very affordable.
