    Will stay again
    Fantastic, bigger than normal hotel room in Japan, closer to JR station & shops, free shuttle to the station every 15 mins.
    Alan, nz6 night business trip
    Fair 4.0
    The hotel is not convenient to exploring the city on foot. The room had no coffee or tea maker. And the service at the cafe was indifferent at best.

    Beware the​ charging​ for​ the​ drink​ing​ Water​
    The​ reason of​ choosing​ this​ Hotel​ was​ the​ hotel​ location.close​ to​ kyoto​ station​ with.free​ hotel shutter​ bus.​ We​ booked​ for​ 3​ nights​ with​ breakfast.​ The​ price​ consider​ quite​ high​ compare​ with​ the​ room​ condition.​ The​ Guest​ requires​ to​ pay​ all​ additional​ charge.for using​ the​ ​Hotel.facilities​ like​ swimming​ pool​ and​ gym.​ The​ breakfast​ almost​ the.same​ manu​ every​day.​ We​ was​ disappointed to​ ask​ for.the​ charging​ of​ the​ bottles​ of​ drink​ing​ Water​ in​ room​ Eventhough​ there​ was​ the​ hotel​ logo​ on​ the​ bottle​ that​ suppose​ to​ be​ a​ Hotel​ complementary.​ For​ our​ entire​ Trip​ in​ Japan, this​ was​ our​ first​ Hotel​ that​ we​ had​ been​ charged​ for​ the​ bottle​ of​ drink​ing​ Water.

    Good 6.0
    Not great
    Staff were professional and courteous. Room was good, not great. The problem was that the cut back in services due to coronavirus fears. The workout room gym that was included in the rate was closed. The swimming pool that appeared to be included (from the Hotels.com website) turns out it is not included unless you want to pay the extra $20 per day. The worst part for me was the “American breakfast” of scrambled eggs toast and ham was so gross I could not eat it.

    Clean and functional
    Reasonable position for station not much around it to see. Lovely pool but for price it is a shame not included in room charge. Small bar area Great shame you are not allowed to have a drink only in the sky restaurant otherwise a rather expensive meal Would describe as functional clean hotel
