I enjoy this hotel even if the bathroom was small (maybe I'm to tall?). The breakfast was great, you get two options of western and Japanese, I tried them both. Its in front of a river canal and if you go by cherry blossom season you will enjoy a nice view in front of the hotel.

A budget hotel. Our room was very hot when we first got there. We turned off the heat and opened the window. The bathroom smelled quite badly so we left the door open. I sprayed my essential oils in the bathroom which helped. The breakfast, a choice of western or Japanese set meal, extra cost, was enough food. There is...

My Wife and I stayed here, Kyoto Travellers Inn near Okazaki Park. Nice hotel with affordable price. They had a nice Onsen (Japanese Hot Spring) inside the hotel at basement. Nice renovated rooms with colourful arts. Really recommend to those who plan to visit Kyoto University, Kyoto City Zoo, Arashiyama or others place in Okazaki area... Thumbs Up

Our family of four stayed this hotel last October. The breakfast is very good and Onsen downstairs is good. Heian Jingu Park is just around the Corner and it is very peaceful atmosphere. Good public transports are available.

The hotel could not be in a better location. Quiet close to many cafes and restaurants, some major sights too. Friendly competent staff. Great quality price relationship. I stay always in this hotel when I am in Kyoto since 2001.

Decent hotel to stay. Clean and reliable. Paid breakfast - cheap and taste good. Owner was able to communicate in English - that was definitely a plus. Per day bus and train passes are available here. Renovated hotel.

Rates for hotels in Japan are getting very high since demand is high. If you pay "that much" and you see how much other hotels cost you should know what to expect. It is place to sleep and I mean it, sleep and go out. Service is OK.

We ended up staying a night here, as our original booking elsewhere for the night was double booked and this was the closest alternative logistically. The room was a little tired looking, but the bathroom was spacious with a very big shower. It suited us fine for the night, but I'm glad we were only there for one night, as...

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
