The day I checked in, this hotel used my credit card details to pay someone else's booking (in addition to mine, obviously). Near $1000USD. No one was willing or able to assist. I've had to launch a fraud enquiry with my bank.

The attendant was super friendly at check in, the room was super small but I assumed it was normal, and the waiter at the hotel restaurant was hesitant to serve us and pretty rude because we're American so we left and ate elsewhere. Probably wouldn't stay there again.

Generally good for value and near the station for easy access. The breakfast is okay but there is a nice bakery close by which serves some very yummy alternatives. I liked the surf shop as they had some very cool stuff and this is not far from the hotel at the back.

It's a great hotel. Staff is extremely helpful but I found as I moved further from Tokyo, people spoke less English. The location is great. Get off the JR at Inari station.

Cozy hotel in Kyoto, little bit far away like 10-15 minutes of walk from JR Inari Station (but there is also a pros - it's only 15 minutes of walk to famous Fushimi Inari Shrine which is next to station) and maybe 7 minutes from Keihan Railway station that can take you directly for example to the Gion - Geisha...

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
