Room-dated furnitures, the bed looks like it was going to fall apart. It was too old!!!
Lobby-it can use a remodel badly, staff was rude.
Location-far from everything, you would need to use a subway ride to get anywhere.

Rooms were nice and clean, not big but sufficient. From the “center” it’s a bit of a walk, about 15min to get to any action and about 30min to reach the Main Street. Western breakfast not so good but Japanese ok.

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.

I bought JR Wide Pass & ICOCA Card - JR Wide pass for JR Haruka Limited from Kansai Airport all the way to Kyoto Station. From Kyoto Station, I used ICOCA Card to Karasuma Oike Station.
Not too sure about Kansai thru pass
It is higly unlikely that they would allow early check-in. They really like to stick to their strict protocols when it suits them. Don't get me wrong though - there are lots of nice staff members there too - but... More
It is higly unlikely that they would allow early check-in. They really like to stick to their strict protocols when it suits them. Don't get me wrong though - there are lots of nice staff members there too - but read my review to get a good idea of the place and the attitudes.
They are not very understanding - unless you invent a sob-story or a medical condition that requires the necessity of an early room.
It is likely they will insist that you store your luggage and go for a walk.
