4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities

I loved the common spaces and the staff was nice in the bar/restaurant. However, the room was tiny.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

This hotel is run a little differently than a "normal" corporate hotel but offers just as much! The room was very minimal but that's all we needed. We somehow scored the room with the tatami mats and a terrace which was amazing. Hanging out on the terrace at night with a couple drinks was definitely one of the most memorable parts of our stay! Hanging out at the hotel bar was also a relaxing way to decompress after long days of sight seeing. Highly recommend this hotel (especially the room with the terrace!)

Traveling from Canada and stayed two nights here. Staff was great, rooms were nice and clean and a good size. Had free coffee and tea available and a nice restaurant on-site and we had breakfast which was very convenient. Good location, short bus ride from Kyoto station and near the market area.

Avant-garde twist

Loved the bunk beds—they offered more space in the room as well as a feeling of privacy for me and my daughter.
