Location was perfect for my first stay in Kyoto, extremely close to Kyoto station! As usual for APA hotel, room was clean and modern looking, so was lobby. Room size was good for solo traveler, might be too small for two people tho. I liked that they had cafe right in the lobby.

I managed to get a cheap deal here on Agoda, it was amazing. At the lobby i was given a bottle of coffee too which i do not recall getting from other APA branches in Tokyo! Other then that, it is quite similar to the other APA chains if you have stayed before. Super good location too, very close to the main stations.

Very pleasant and clean hotel”

Lovely hotel, so convinient being a 3 minute walk away from Kyoto station, made my life so much easier going to different places using the subways and local routes. Room was just a good size for one person but if there are 2 of you, you may find it a little uncomfortable as there is only just enough space to put one large suitcase. There is a Starbucks about 2 minutes away by foot, a Family Mart for you water and breakfast needs. I wouldn't recommend having breakfast in the hotel, too expensive and you get better choice buying elsewhere. They are stricted about check-in time which is 3pm. I arrived an hour early and they wouldn't let me go to my room, but they kindly stored my suitcase until I returned later in the evening. Other than that, I would definitely stay here again if I travel alone, but couples will find these rooms a tight squeeze. I noticed a lot of office workers staying here, but still a lovely hotel. Enjoy your stay regardless of my opinions :)

Most Japanese hotel rooms are on the small side but it can be the way they are arranged. This one was small but also poorly set out. No laundry facilities but there are some close by. Not a 'bad' hotel ut unless you get it for a great price I would try another. Good location, 5 mins walk to Kyoto station.
