Very surprised and very happy with our stay here. The size and quality of the rooms exceeded our expectations, they were clean, well appointed and very comfortable. Free lavazza coffee and green tea latte a bonus. It was a shame that some guests abused this by filling up the thermoses each morning which made it difficult for those trying to...

Every hotel we stayed at had something better than the next; one had the least rules/regulations, one gave us the best night of sleep, one was the best room and one had the best staff and overall experience: MyStays gave us the best room, by far. The staff is friendly, courteous and they all speak English fairly well. The hotel...

I've been trying to find something to fault about this hotel on but, for an affordable one it's ticked every box. Lovely staff, good amenities, location very central to sights and public transport. And clean, our room was spotless and modern. Only ¥1080 from Kyoto station.

The hotel is close to subway stations and you can walk easily to Gion and Nishiki market from there. Rooms have a good size. There is a laundry on the ground floor, which came very handy. Plenty of supermarkets and convenient stores in the neighbourhood. Great base to explore Kyoto.

Writing this review on the hotel lobby pc. Hotel itself is fine, nothing special really. seemed like a good location at a good price. Breakfast in the restaurant downstairs was a bit much at 1500 yen, but good with nice variety. Major downside: we were the only non-Asian tourists here, and the hallways were very noisy early in the morning...

The room is really big when compared to other Japanese business hotel. They provide free coffee and matcha latte at kitchen zone near the lobby. The amenities are nice and equipped. There are many convenient stores such as Family mart or Seven near the hotel.

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
