            • Couple
              9.6

              The Hotel is very good located, near the metro station, the shopping street and it was very clean and the staff was amazing gentle.

            • Group of friends
              8.8

              The room is cosy and to my surprise, it's bigger than I expected. The single bed is actually good for 2 persons. There's Starbucks on the ground floor which is connected to the hotel. Very convenient. From the entrance, you couldn't tell it's a hotel.

            • Single
              7.4

              location of the hotel was quite central. within a minute walk to the subway station. the single room was small though functional and clean. with starbuck (with wifi) at the lobby was a bonus.

              it would be great if the temperature of the room can be controlled.

            • Single
              9.2

              Prompt service, very helpful and knowledgeable staff, excellent location in downtown Kyoto. It will be on my shortlist of hotles in my future visits to Kyoto.

            • Single
              8.2

              The location is perfect, and the staff too.

              The air conditioner lacked a temperature control.

            • Single
              8.8

              Nice hotel, nice location, helpful staff

              Lack of recommendations of restaurants
