Located in the centre of the kyoto, about 8 minutes walk to the nearest subway station. Room ok, clean and a bit spacious. Transportation is convenient as there is a bus stop right outside the hotel. The staff are friendly, and helpful. You guys can purchase some travel pass at the hotel. Overall, the hotel is nice! I recommended this...

Writing this review on the hotel lobby pc. Hotel itself is fine, nothing special really. seemed like a good location at a good price. Breakfast in the restaurant downstairs was a bit much at 1500 yen, but good with nice variety. Major downside: we were the only non-Asian tourists here, and the hallways were very noisy early in the morning...

The room is really big when compared to other Japanese business hotel. They provide free coffee and matcha latte at kitchen zone near the lobby. The amenities are nice and equipped. There are many convenient stores such as Family mart or Seven near the hotel.

We were happy with our 7 day stay at mystays. Yes rooms are small, but that is Japan. Beds were comfortable and we enjoyed the deep Japanese bathtubs after long days of walking. Shower also had good water pressure. We paid extra for buffet breakfast,nothing too fancy, but worked well for us, as it kept us going for our days...

The hotel is small but cosy. The receptionists are friendly and offer good advise. Wifi is fast. The lobby level has a pantry with a machine that serves a very good macha all day. We kept going for refills. The room is a decent size, considering we were three in the room. The breakfast buffet is convenient with a wide...

We booked the standard triple room for 3 adults and one infant (16 months old) for 2 nights in October 2016. Location was easy to find, being about 5-10 minute walk from the nearby subway station. Lobby is on the second floor and the attendants spoke English. We got our keys and were surprised at the size of the room....

Good hotel with professional staff that made me feel welcome. Clean room. Fast check-in. Luggage storage. Possible to wash clothes. Personally I didn't like the breakfast (optional). The hotels location is perfect! There are bus stops just a short walk away from the hotel. I would not think twice about returning! Great value.

Staying in City Center

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.
