Quick walk from Kyoto Station
I chose this hotel based on how close it was to Kyoto station, as we were only in Kyoto for 2 nights, so we had to be close to the bullet trains. It was about a 5-minute walk, so very happy with the location. What’s also great is that Kyoto station has access to bullet trains, JR lines and the Metro. It’s important to note that a lot of the main attractions in Kyoto are extremely spread out, so being close to a train station is essential. There are also lots of convenient stores and shopping centres nearby, so plenty of places to get food. I was also super happy as there was a Don Quijote across from the train station. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel which looked quite nice, but a bit pricey for young travellers. Staff were very friendly and held our bags prior to check-in so we could explore Kyoto. The room itself was ok, a bit small, but expected with Japanese hotel rooms. Bathroom was also very small. The lobby and exterior of the hotel were very modern. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and the location of the hotel was perfect.
