    當初是四人預定三人房型,本來擔心會有點擠,事實上房間很大,也很貼心的準備了第四張床,家庭房型廁所浴室分開的設計也很理想,早餐也是很豐盛,整體來說都很好。真要說最可惜的就是離地鐵站還是要走一下,以及投幣式洗衣機太早斷電,要遊客最晚21點就把衣服丟下去洗有點過早了。 We booked a triple room for 3 adult and 1 child, and it still big enough for 4 people. And the stuff kindly arranged a extra bed for us, the shower room and the toilet was separated, very smart design, and the breakfast is...More

    the Female staffs were very helpful. The Room was clean, neat and very relaxing. The Shower was very comfortable to use. Too bad we should have booked Smile hotel in Tokyo. But when in Japan we already know our Hotel of Choice

    I was a little disappointed that the hotel was so worn and in need of improvements. What I liked: -The location: close to restaurants, convenience stores, pharmacies, station and public transportation to various tourist attractions.

    Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
    Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
    and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
    tourists and local business travelers, making it a
    competitive location for ever-new commercial
    structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
    trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
    Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
