                                                          Big rooms for a Japanese hotel for a decent price. Quiet in spite of the nearby busy railway.

                                                          Pretty expensive breakfast, no gym, pool access 2000 yen

                                                          For these Americans, the bed was too hard and difficult to sleep on.

                                                          location, very close from JR kyoto station

                                                          the inside of bulding were old, no light for closet, very bad internet connection... our impression of this hotel was not modern.
