    A solid mainstream hotel option for Kyoto. We were traveling during high season when it was hard to get rooms. This hotel is very close to the train and bus station (although they offer a shuttle service to pick you up if you want it)....More

    房間供應多,櫻花期遲book也有房;但價格已近五星級。如較早準備又有budget都係住外國連鎖酒店酒店吧,日本連鎖酒店建築樓底太矮!Executive floor其實只位於較高的十樓,但沒有lounge可入,不值升級。Standard twin room即使在executive floor 房間都很小,一定要book superior room。免費接駁巴士往火車站超方便,班次密!早餐價格合理。但如果講方便同級有Granvia,呢間比Granvia嘅優勢只是新裝修。

    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.

    that's not a good hotel to stay in. We had a similar experience when we were there last april. Staff is totally inefficient for a so-called 4 star hotel. There are better hotels nearer to kyoto station
