Stayed here for 4 nights; we were 3 adults. We reserved a corner deluxe twin room (with 2 twin beds) and requested a 3rd bed for our adult daughter, but upon check-in were upgraded to the premium floor (9th floor). Since it was our daughter's...More
Conveniently located near two train stops, however it is quite a distance from Kyoto station requiring a long walk or cab. Rooms as a little larger than standard japanese hotel rooms and in good condition. Laundry room available. Fridges in room. Separate toilet and shower...More
Very good location - average food for breakfast. Could do with a bit more housekeeping - dust over the counters next to the toaster and room AC . Staff very helpful. One can reach almost any place from this hotel
This hotel had terrific kids working at the desk...they gave us so much helpful information when we were touring Kyoto! They could converse in English and made our vacation so much better and easier. It was high season with cherry blossoms, so they were busy,...More
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.

We felt comfortable with leaving our valuables in the room. This was the case throughout Japan. On occasions we took our passports with us however there really is no need as we had no issues extracting cash from ATM... More
We felt comfortable with leaving our valuables in the room. This was the case throughout Japan. On occasions we took our passports with us however there really is no need as we had no issues extracting cash from ATM machines. Travelling in Japan is very safe, you would be more likely to misplace your valuables that have them stolen .... note: we travelled extensively between Tokyo, Hakuba Ski fields, Kyoto and Osaka using public transport ie buses and trains. You will more than likely be given things than have anything taken from you.

Don't remember having a safe in the room. I'm sure the desk will handle valuables. Japan being so safe, you could just lock valuables in your suitcase. Or contact the hotel and get a solid answer directly.
