    Exclusive

    Very friendly staff, surprisingly large and comfortable room, easy access to train station, subway and shopping districts.

    Restaurant choices expensive, but cheaper alternatives nearby in the Porta underground mall.

    Very good

    Big rooms for a Japanese hotel for a decent price. Quiet in spite of the nearby busy railway.

    Pretty expensive breakfast, no gym, pool access 2000 yen

    Good

    Clean room and good access to Kyoto Station.

    For these Americans, the bed was too hard and difficult to sleep on.

    location, very close from JR kyoto station

    the inside of bulding were old, no light for closet, very bad internet connection... our impression of this hotel was not modern.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    L'emplacement est correct, ma chambre était confortable et correctement équipée. J'ai particulièrement apprécié la connexion wifi disponible dans les chambres et très rapide.

    L'équipement de la salle de bain laisse un peu à désirer, tout y est, mais la dernière rénovation remonte probablement à très longtemps. Je n'ai pas aimé l'absence de vod sur la télévision ni le très restreint bouquet de chaînes en langues étrangères. L'absence de tv5 et la présence d'un cadre d'information qui prend un quart de l'écran sur toutes les chaînes qui ne sont pas en japonais était également pénible. La sélection au petit déjeuner est également très décevante.

    Maybe a little bit far from downtown but very convenient because near Tokyo station where all buses leave

    Salle de bain moderne et bien équipée

    Chambre non-fumeur située au même étage que des chambres fumeur - inacceptable! Nous avons été déçus du service navette à la gare - bus surchargé et chauffeur malpoli.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Proche de la gare, donc central, et confortable.

    Hotel "standard", sans charme particulier. Détail:Taxi depuis la gare, nécessaire si gros bagages.
