The hotel is located in opposite of the train station, next to the Kyoto tower. To the trains it‘s just a 3 minutes walk therefore. The room was nicely decorated and spacious for japanese conditions. Wifi as well wired high speed ethernet are complimentary. The breakfast buffet exceeded my expectations, you find many local and international food. It‘s my fourth hotel experience in Kyoto and the best so far. I can highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is an anti- foreginer in my opinion. i am a taiwanese who was born and lived in japan for more than 30years, and i have never been treated like this when i checked in. 3 of my family member and one american friend got two rooms, and when we checked in, we were asked to present japan residency cards and passport. we have never been asked to present those ids ever in japanese hotels. maybe they do that for security reason, but they said they didnt need my brother's since he is a "japanese." they didnt make any copies and they said they didnt need one when i said i didnt have it with me. moreover, as soon as they saw my and mom's name which are in chinese, they said we are from China. we told them, no, it is taiwan, and they didnt ask for anything else. i bet they wanted to ask us for more documents if we said china. in any case, it is very rude to judge ppl where they are from only with names. very unprofessional. lastly, he told us that two of us are registered for one room, and the other two are registered for the other room. he said we can only use the room we registered. i wonder why he told us that. does it mean i cant go to other room? i cannot use restroom in the other room? there was a japanese person who was checking in next to me. he was never told those requests from the hotel and he checked in in 2min while ours lasted for more than 10. i felt we were looked down and felt uncomfortable.the miyako hotel we stayed a day before, also near kyoto station, was super friendly and checkin and checkout were both very efficient and smooth. i have stayed in this hankyu hotel two years ago and i loved it. however, from today's experience, i dont think i would ever stay here again. if you want to stay in a hotel which will treat you same as japanese people and make you feel at home, i would not stay here.

The hotel/room itself was below average. Nothing special, but got the job done I suppose. Furnishings are definitely a bit outdated, and were not the cleanest. I did not expect much from the room, but it somehow still disappointed. What really set me off about this hotel was the atrocious service. Everyone working was either completely incompetent, or just flat out rude. Most of them did not know how to address any concerns and would just dish you off to someone else. After continuing this seemingly never ending cycle to the top, the manager just says "sorry", and walks away. I have never been so dissatisfied with a service to leave a review in my entire life. However, this experience was so awful that I felt compelled to make an account just to leave this review.

I am planning to visit Japan for October 16 until 25 but suddenly when I am applying a tourist visa to Japan here in Bangkok Thailand, they didn’t approved my visa and I didn’t know what is the problem of my application. They didn’t disclose the reason why they didn’t approved. But sad to say I already booked my hotels in Japan and paid already in different places in Japan. Shinjuku, Fuji Kawagunchiko, Sendai, Hakodate, Tokyo Kyoto and Osaka. Then when my application not approved its a very big disappointment for me. Wasted my plane ticket with my friend almost 20thousand Baht. Then I try to message my booking hotels if they allowing me to cancel my booking and be refunded and I already explain to them my reason why I need to cancel due to my visa rejection. But most of them are allowing me to cancel and they refund my money. But except this hotel in Kyoto they didn’t response my email and I don’t know what kind of service they have to the customers. I think they don’t have a consideration and understanding about what happened to their customers why we need to cancel our booking. If they didn’t allowed me to cancel or refund they must response my email to know if allowed or not but the bad thing is they didn’t care about your concerned. They didn’t reply. I am so sad I lost my money for hoping to experience the beauty in Japan and all my plan is ruined.

We are a family of four, traveling with 2 large suitcases and we had enough room to open the luggage and still move around. The hotel is very conveniently located, you can basically take any bus and/or metro from there. The breakfast and lunch buffet were very good, there were all types of choices even for my picky eaters. The staff was very courteous... we would definitely recommend it!
