    Good location hotel..

    It's a small and simple hotel but location is good. A lot of restaurants nearby and there's a money changer machine and MUFG ATM machines next to arashiyama line. Important is this money changer machine provides good rate for foreign currencies compare to other bank machines. Room size is not big but the twin room for two persons sharing is still quite OK to me. I choose the twin room without cleaning services but they will still provide you new clean towels everyday. This hotel has coin operated washing machines and dryers therefore it's convenient for those people have a need to wash their clothes. The front desk staffs are helpful and friendly. They help us to call taxi to Kyoto station. We took taxi to Kyoto station because we have four big luggages. Those people who travel with light, they can take the hanyu omiya station to Kyoto station. It's convenient because the station is just nearby the hotel. There's a two mins walk Mcdonald near the hotel and less than one min walk family mart near the hotel. Drug store is nearby the hotel too. I will choose this hotel again if I come to visit Kyoto.
