This Hotel is very close to the train station of Ishiyama. Walking distance. The hotel is budget for the wallet and good size room and has those rubber pillows good for the neck. They have decent toilet. So overall it's a good one. The place has some attractions only. The beautiful nature and one great temple Ishiyama Temple don't forget...

Friendly, helpful staff. Very impressed for rate paid with overall quality of room and amenities. Literally can see hotel from platform when get off the train, just cross the road and there. McDonalds on the corner and local restaurants/grocery store very close by. Breakfast options plentiful, yes I waited once for a minute when busy but the staff managed with...

Due to the high prices of Kyoto hotels, especially during the New Year period, we chose Reiah for a 3 night stay. It's very close to the JR station, and trains take only 15min from there into Kyoto station, and are very regular. In fact, we went to Kyoto for New Year's Eve, and there were trains running throughout the...

Nice clean hotel which offers good value with breakfast included. It's in the outskirt of Kyoto, a few JR train stops from town center (10-15min ride). It is very close to the local JR train station. This may be considered inconvenient for some, but the train rides from Kyoto to the hotel gave us a chance to really see how...

Of course, when you're in Kyoto you don't spend much time in your hotel room. So from that perspective Reiah Hotel provided the basics we needed: a bed, a shower and laundry facilities. Reiah is also good in terms of its location, only a 15 min train ride to Kyoto main station. There were a few things though that I...

My husband did not like to sleep on tatami mats or share bathrooms with other guests. That eliminated a number of cheaper options for hotels/hostels in Kyoto. Luckily, I found Reiah Hotel Otsu Ishiyama (near Kyoto) in Agoda. Our first two nights were booked at Reiah for PHP 5,700 (good for two people). I got a very good deal at...

Myself and my best friend stayed here for three nights when in Kyoto. It's down a little side street and can be tricky to find if you don't have a map. Not much happens at night so if you're looking for places to walk and see close by then give it a miss. It is very quiet aside from the...

I don't usually say this but this one I will avoid in the future at all cost: The shower whistles when above a certain threshold, the A/C smells, when sitting in the bed I got a lamp in my neck, everything looks cheap, opening the window to get rid of the smell exposes you to all the street noise, the...
