“so so”
Reviewed 8 November 2006

The foyer was always smoky fume smell and staff was friendly but not go out of their way to service, GOOD location as after shopping return back to room to put our belongings and continue again. Room size is just right, although tiny size bathroom by western standards, can't complain, BAD do complain about the stain carpets in the cooridoors with terrible old odours and the room had carpet stains too. GOOD bed was made with fresh towels and supplies each morning. We stayed in Tokyo Washington Hotel which the same price about $500 AUD for 3 nights, however GOOD the carpets were clean and modern decor and even had a massage chair and ironing pants machine in the room and large flat screen tv and most staff can speak clear conversational english. So clearly the price paid at Kyoto Central Inn was too expensive for the condition of its room and furnitures.

Stayed October 2006

We recently stayed at the Kyoto Central Inn. The location was great with plenty of shopping, restaurants, etc. nearby. The price was right for budget conscious travelers. The staff was very professional, helpful, friendly, and spoke English well enough so that we could communicate with them. Our room was small, but clean. We also had a small refrigerator and hot water for tea was provided in the lobby--plus plenty of green tea bags were available. Our bedding and towels were changed everyday and the sheets were pressed and looked very clean. However, the carpeting in our room looked dirty. It was a bright yellow in color with dark spots around the walls and a dingy look in the center. Some of the other rooms had a darker colored carpeting which looked much better. We could hear the noise from the street, but it wasn't terrible. You can reach a nearby coffee shop directly from the hotel, however the coffee shop was so filled with smokers that it made the hallway leading to the coffee shop very smoke filled. This same hallway led to the elevators, so you really couldn't avoid the smoke.
