This is an old fashioned hotel, with metal keys, windows that open, and bedspreads and sheets on the beds. Fairly roomy for a Japanese hotel, space to turn around and a small closet. Bathroom is level with the room rather than a step up, so easier to access. Information is nicely laid out in English and some in Chinese as well. Location is 2 train stops from downtown Kyoto, and has easy access to Hankyu train line (across the intersection) which goes from downtown Kyoto to downtown Osaka, about 10 bus lines, and the Keifuku tram line (1 block) which goes to Arashiyama. Not fancy, but clean, convenient, and well maintained. Excellent value.
The location was perfect. Walking distance to the bus and train station. Convenient store was just right next to the hotel. Staffs were friendly and caring.
Soba dinner, location very near station and bus stop. Everything is good in ark hotel, staff is kind and nice. Definitely will come here again next trip.
the location was a short walk away from the main subway line and also just next to another train line which intersected the tube. The staff were very friendly, offered a free meal and the room was clean and large enough.
Based on google maps I selected this hotel as it was right in the middle of Kyoto. However a lot of tourist destinations are to the east of the city. However as it was so well connected, this was not a large issue.
The salmon and miso soup at breakfast were delicious! Staff is friendly. Location is right next to the train station. Soundproof was amazing. We had to take a room with no cleaning, however, the hotel was so nice, that they still offered us one time cleaning. They changed our towels every day. The biggest surprise was on the 14/th of July: it was at the beginning of the festival, and the hotel hired a real Maiko to meet the guests at the lobby. Also she was surrounded by two musicians, who performed traditional Japanese music. That was a fantastic experience.
Wi Fi was terrible: constantly switching on and off. Staff is friendly, however, they could not answer any of elementary questions (either language barrier, or they did not know the answer), for example: how to go to the airport. Also, we had to leave our key every time we went out, which was annoying.
