We stayed here for 5 nights during February. A great location that is central to all services, shops, restaurants, less than a 5 minute walk to either 2 train stations and approximately a 20 minute walk to the Gion district. There is a great little...More
I will start with the pro: excellent location and that‘s it.
Front desk staff are very junior and half of them international staff with bad Japanese and Bad English. Not very friendly, and will give you an one word answer about your questions unless...More
This is a fantastic hotel in a great location on Kyoto. The rooms are clean and the staff very friendly. I highly recommend staying at this hotel.
There are lots of restaurants and shops near by. Plus its close to the train station.
Stayed here for 2 nights late Feb 2018. Getting there is quite easy from Osaka airport, we took the train to Kyoto central station and then subway to hotel. The reception/lobby is simple and check in/out very efficient. Rooms are clean and good size (for...More
We stayed here for one night and everything about our stay was superb. The staff were friendly and welcoming, the concierge was incredibly helpful coordinating a local tour, and the room (large by Japanese standards) was exceptional! We went for a premium floor room, which...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.
