    Superb

    A former resident with language/knowledge. Seek the River view room and you'll love it !

    The first floor entry sign for the same priced downstairs restaurant for Washoku breakfast was confusing. Closed in 2011 ?

    Fabulous

    Excellent location and reasonable pricing, compared to similar hotels nearby.

    My room was facing a temple with graveyard. Rooms on the other side is facing the Kamo River.

    the location is good, a little away from where noisy and busy but still a nice short walk to places we like to go.

    the staffs' english isn't so well. and one time i asked for the map of bus, one staff told me go to buy a ticket with map.......

  • 6.6
    Good

    Nice location next to River and short distance from centre - room average - overall expensive especially breakfast which is double what I was paying elsewhere.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    quiet hotel, friendly staff, good location, standart room (bigger than in Tokyo in the hotel of the same level)

    Unfortunately, nobody doesn't speak English. You can have free access to the internet. There is a point of access (LAN only). You can use it free if you have own notebook or pay 100 yen pae 10 minute using hotel's computer. There isn't any free Wi-Fi points.

    Fabulous

    The rooms were of a good size for a Japanese Hotel, and many of the front desk staff spoke good english.

    The air conditioning system did not work particularly well

  • 6.6
    Good

    Good location, pleasant room.

    Mediocre staff, hotel is old fashioned in its facilities. For example there is no possibility to print out boarding passes. Breakfast is expensive for what it offers. It is as if time stood still here: the hotel is 20 years behind in its management and does not really provide a hospitable environment.

    The bedcovers were not nice.

    The only thing that is good about this hotel is the location.

    This is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. There were so many stains on the carpet that it was difficult to say what it's colour actually was. The furniture was old, thorn and stained. The shower cabin was at least my age. Everything was screaming for reinovation!!! Calling this a 4 star hotel must be joke, in Europe it will be lucky to get even 1 star. Most of the staff at the reception did not speak english. The internet was not for free (please fix this information on your webpage) and there was no internet in the rooms (an embarasment for 21st century Japan). The hotel is not worth even half of the money we paid for it and I do not recommend it.

    Guest rating

    Hotel was located reasonably well. Bell men/women and restaurant help were very sweet.

    First room shown was ridiculously unacceptable. Torn furniture, stained carpet. No english spoken. No tourist information/brochures.

    it was good value for money and had good location

    it was difficult to communicate in English with reception staff

    Exclusive

    The hotel is in an excellent location with a lot of Kyoto attractions within 15/20 mins walk and the rest easily accessible by train or bus. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful.

  • 6.2
    Good

    The location of the hotel is ideal.

    The prices of the restaurants (breakfast buffet 20 euro) are exaggerated. There was no free water or tea/coffee in the lounge, newspapers had to be paid for, internet was 100 Yen per 10 minutes...

    Exclusive

    I had a super perfect view over the river and the mstaff is very polite & friendly, ountains!!! From the restaurant you see the hotel's garden with little waterfalls - very cute! The rooms are spacious and a little bit old fashion style - that's also nice & matches the atmosphere. The staff's very polite, helping & friendly, but I'd say they don't speak too much English. The stay there was great!!! I'd definitely recommend it!
