Positive Reviews

Strategic location in central Kyoto area

The positive reviews are from guests who admired the hotel’s central and practical location that is perfect for travellers. The hotel is only within a short walking distance from the Kyoto station, transport systems, restaurants, shrines, supermarkets, and other popular tourists’ spots within the area.

Small yet satisfying beds

Despite small size of the beds, which is just right for the actual size of the room, most guests are still able to enjoy their stay due to the soft and satisfying quality of the mattresses. The beds are very comfortable and well-suited for practical travellers or backpackers.

Pleasantly helpful employees

Guests were pleased with the hotel’s helpful staff despite their struggle with the English language. They were nice, pleasant, and more than willing to help with all the needs and requests of the guests such as bicycle rentals. Staffs also automatically offer assistance with bike parking and storage.

Negative Reviews

Cramped rooms!

Most of the common and most noticeable negative comments from guests are with regards to the small and insufficient size of the rooms. This issue served as a challenge for guests who had too much luggage. Guests had no choice but to rotate or swap places within the rooms so they could move properly and arrange their things.

Weak Wi-Fi connection within the premises

Previous guests had issues with the slow and weak Wi-Fi within the hotel, which is quite unusual in Japan. The guests consistently get disconnected and most of them had difficulty reconnecting and browsing the Internet.

Inconvenient centralised air-conditioning system

Due to the poor performance of the air-conditioning system, most guests who went there during summer had to struggle with the warm weather. Guests couldn’t adjust the temperature properly since the air conditioning system is centralised.
