Great choice for a Kyoto visit, if you dont intend to stay in Gion area.
Close to kyoto station, there's Lawson just nearby and Avanti mall across the road.
The hotel also has "onsen" or japanese spa pool.
Room size is ok (japan standard).
Standard amenities.

I've been staying in 9-10 hotels on the same price level around Japan. This hotel is one of the best. Room size is slightly bigger than any other hotel (at the same price level) I've been. The bed is also more spacious, and more comfortable than the others. Let's say, average double bed in Japan is actually semi-double size, I guess it's around 120 cm wide for two person? This one maybe around 150. In some cases, I found bed is extremely narrow for 2 person that none of us can flip. And either bed is too hard or too fluffy it can trap you in, but this one is just perfect for resting after whole day walk and sore feet.

Location! Location is perfect, just in front of Kyoto station and the bus terminal, including the airport bus from Osaka, good choice to go everywhere easily.

Amenities are standard as in most of Japanese hotel on this price level, amenities are complete, shampoo, soap, conditioner, comb, shaver, shower cap, toothbrush and paste, face cleaning set, slippers, and pajamas, you got all you need!

They offer public communal bath too (separated between man and woman), will be a very interesting experience for foreigners to try!

Reception and staffs are friendly and helpful.

The only down side is the check out time at 10 am, earlier than most hotel use to have (around 11/12). If you're late a bit, they will charge you with 30% of daily price.
I'd say, 11 am will be good time for check out.

Thank you for your review.
We are glad to see your comment about our service, location, public bath and amenities.
We renewed our hotel last November and a lot of customers are satisfied.
We have Single, Deluxe Single, Double, Twin and Deluxe Twin.
Each bed-sizes are 120x195, 140x200, 150x200, 110x200 and 120x195.
Each room can be chosen according to customer's circumstances.

Location is also good. From Hachijyo Higashi Exit of JR Kyoto Station, it takes about 2 minutes on foot.
Many visitors can go to various sightseeing spots there.

We are very sorry to hear that but we tell all guests to check out until 10:00 am.

Please chose our hotel again if you come to Kyoto.
Best Regards,

Murakami

The review did not belie the quality of this hotel, though when I entered the room I felt
the room was really small; this must be due to my staying at classy hotel before coming here. The room was clean and all the amenities are there like any other hotels. The attraction for Japanese is inside bath house and it was a really big and new. The hotel has a good I enjoyed it very much. The hotel has a good collection of magazines on Kyoto in the lobby area. They have a kimono rental shop which ladies will surely love it. You have to walk a little from Kyoto station crossing two main road to reach the hotel. Then bath tub in the room was really small and also water tap handle was a bit difficult to manage to control water flow. Otherwise it was a nice hotel with good price.

Thank you for your review. We are really glad to see it. Our hotel renovated in November last year and made large public Japanese spas on the second floor of the new building. It is very popular among customers who use in sightseeing as well as customers who use it in business. Was the public bath comfortable? Because it is limited only to the guests staying, it is a space where you can spend a relaxing time. The rental kimono shop VASARA on the first floor has been recently made. It is popular among young lady customers and foreigners. Please stay again the next time when you come to Kyoto. We are looking forward to seeing you soon again.

This hotel is located close to the train station. So it makes yoyr commuting easier to anypart of Kyoto. We arrived by Shinkasen from Tokyo and within 7 minutes were at El Inn Kyoto. The hotel is nice and decent. We also had dinner at the restaurant downstairs and food was great. Rooms are smsll but nice and decent for Japanese standard hotel. The cjallenge is early checkout at 10 am and quite didnt like that too much. The clothes were difficult to dry in the washing machines. Staff members of hotel were helpful. Wouldnot stay here again though its a nice hotel.

Thank you for your review. We are glad to see it indeed. The hotel is located in 2 minutes on foot from Kyoto Station Hachijyohigashi exit and is very convenient. After renewal last November, we set up large public Japanese spas on the second floor. On the first floor there is a Japanese restaurant MAI, as well as a rental kimono shop VASARA. Southern Kyoto is far from the sea and there are few shops with delicious fish dishes but resutaurant MAI has served fresh Sashimi and Kyoto cuisine and we are also happy to be satisfied. We are looking forward to seeing you soon again.
