Very clean hotel, staff are very polite. We booked 3 rooms, room rate are expensive during the peak season, maple leave (24th-28th Nov 2019). Room are very small not much space to move around, however we spent most of the time outside and return to the hotel at night. There is also a SPA at the top floor for hotel guests.

Thank you for staying at APA Hotel Kyoto Eki Horikawa-dori. I'm glad you enjoyed your trip to Kyoto. The autumn leaves of Kyoto are the most beautiful time now. Because many Japanese and foreigners visit Kyoto, hotel prices are high. Please understand. APA Hotel promotes eco activities. As part of these activities, the hotel has a compact room design and operates the hotel with consideration for the environment. It may be difficult to move around in the room, but the bed uses a spacious original bed mat to create a space where you can relax. There is a public bath on the top floor, and there is a sauna and an open-air bath. You can relax and enjoy bathing, so please use it. Please use this hotel again when you travel to Kyoto.

I have now stayed in 2 of the APA hotels in Kyoto - one of which I have previously reviewed. This visit, I stayed in the APA Hotel Kyoto Eki Horikawadori. Much like the Ekimae hotel the room was TINY. This time, I was forced to put my suitcase under the bed, as there was no other space (apart from directly behind the door) for my luggage. There was enough hanging space for about 5 shirts and one pair of pants. Decor of this hotel is an improvement on the Ekimae Hotel. Unfortunately, the fridge in the room was turned off when I arrived. I read something in the room that indicated that the hotel would prefer me to use the vending machine, but the vending machine didn't dispense the items that I wanted, so I purchased them from the "7-11" next door. Bed was comfortable (apart from being a little small), and the pillows were good. I am a smoker the the room included and air purifying device, which seemed to work reasonably well. There are 3 lifts in this hotel, so access to the lobby was not really an issue. Free WiFi in this hotel was not very good for Japanese standards, but it was functional. Staff were friendly. Location is good relative to Kyoto Station. Took me about 13 minutes to walk to the train platform each morning. There is a good Ramen restaurant and coffee shop less than 1 minute walk from the lobby.

Thank you for staying at APA Hotel Kyoto Eki Horikawa-dori. You stayed in front of Kyoto Station. The hotel is close to Kyoto Station and there is a convenience store next to it. It is in a convenient location for shopping. APA Hotel promotes eco activities. The room is designed to be compact. This makes the air conditioner more efficient. In addition, the refrigerator is turned on and off by the user to save electricity. If you cooperate with the no-cleaning of the sheets, you will receive mineral water. Apa Hotel offers original bed mats to make your sleep more comfortable. There are also low and high pillows. There is a public bath on the top floor of the hotel. It is possible to relax in a large bath. If you come to Kyoto, please use this hotel. We look forward to.

This is a business hotel within 5 minute walking distance from Kyoto station - so it's very convenient to go in and out of Kyoto. It's also super easy to get taxis in the area. There are also some great shopping malls nearby and you have access to lots of restaurants inside the Kyoto station area. The room was however the smallest of all my hotel rooms in Japan (which in general has very small hotel rooms).

Thank you for staying at APA Hotel Kyoto Station Horikawa-dori. The hotel is a 6-minute walk from Kyoto Station and is very convenient for transportation. Taxi is also easy to catch. If you wish, the hotel front desk will make a taxi reservation. There are many shops around the hotel, such as AEON MALL, electronics stores, department stores, souvenirs, and restaurants. It is very convenient when you want to purchase Japanese products. APA Hotel rooms are compactly designed. Since there is a room centering on the bed, there is not much free space. Please understand that the structure is eco-conscious. It is a small room, but you can relax. There is also a public bath, so be sure to warm it up in a large bath. If you are looking for an affordable hotel in Kyoto, please come to the hotel. I am waiting for you.

One of my best stays in Japan. Walking distance from the train station (trust me, you want that). I did gamble when I booked a hotel with such a low rating, but it paid off. Have not tried the spa, but coin laundry machines where new (it did take 2 hrs to finish washing which included detergent then drying). Next to many convenient stores. I really liked the big screen TV that you can screen cast to it for free.

Thank you for staying at APA Hotel Kyoto Station Horikawa-dori. It was our greatest pleasure that you were very pleased. The hotel has a public bath on the 11th floor. There is also a sauna, open-air bath and water bath. In addition, there is a coin laundry on the 11th floor where you can wash clothes. There is no need to bring detergent, it can be fully automatic. There are 5 units in all, but please understand that it is very crowded. The TV is 50-inch and has a mirroring function. You can project and watch videos from your smartphone. There is a convenience store next to our hotel. We have heard from customers that it is very convenient. I think that there is a lot of luggage when traveling from abroad. Depending on the room type, there is a room that can hold a carry case under the bed, so please request it if you wish. If you come to Japan, please stay at this hotel or APA Hotel. I look forward to seeing you again.

It's seems like over 130 rooms are facing each other like the picture below. My room was on the highest floor but I could see only beds in other rooms and my bed was visible to others. It's not a hotel but a prison. Staff(Meise?) was incredibly unkind,she seemed to refuse to speak English and didn't inform me about anything that would normally be told at check-in.

Thank you for staying at APA Hotel Kyoto Station Horikawa Dori. There are 516 rooms in the hotel, and a public bath is set on the top floor. The public bath was under renovation until June 13, but it is available now. APA Hotel is a city hotel for short stays. Eco is promoted by designing the rooms to a minimum size and compact. The purpose is to relax and relax around the bed. We were very sorry for the response of our staff. I will instruct you to treat you more kindly. Thank you for pointing out kindly. I am happy to see you again when I come to Kyoto. Thank you for posting while you are busy.
