地理位置方便 员工英语很不错”

地理位置方便 步行几分钟就可以坐到阪急电车去大阪,也有乌丸线可以去五条。 门口也有207公车直接去清水寺。 酒店对面有两个超市,买东西也很方便,酒店员工的英语也很不错! 除了房间比较小其他都不错总体很推荐。

Just what you need”

If being walking distance to everything in Kyoto is what you are looking for this is the place to stay. You are anywhere from 5-30min from all the stops on the hop-on-hop-off bus! Also the transit lines are nearby too if walking is not your thing. If you just want a bed to sleep in while you are out exploring then look no further. It’s a simple hotel with not a lot of luxury but is clean and safe!

Very good value”

The hotel is nice for the value. They had all we needed. It was comfortable, we were out most of the day, and just used to rest and bathe. Location was a 7-10 min walk to the metro. Buses are close by.
