Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Unbeknown to me my wife booked this motel while in kyoto. When we arrived at our room we found out there was no beds and that we had to make them up ourselves with the little fold out lounges. This being the case it made it very stuffy and cramped in the 6m x 6m room. The included breakfasts were terrible, bento boxes. (More like mystery boxes) not really central to anything and cabs are ridiculously expensive, and they don’t understand English. Would not recommend this place but it might float some people’s boats.

Let me start by saying - there is nothing “wrong” with this hotel. It’s clean, safe, and very basic (like a Motel 6 near the highway in the US, complete with paper thin towels and 70s patterns on the futons). It was fun to try sleeping on tatami mats and using Japanese pjs. However, this hotel was not a great fit if you are visiting Kyoto for just a few days, are a JR pass holder, and trying to make the most of your time. You will burn a lot of time and money “getting around” from this property... and at the price point there are many better located options. As for the JR lines, it about 40 minute walk to Kyoto station and 20 minutes to Nijo station (same time in a bus with traffic, slightly shorter in a taxi). They offer a shuttle to Kyoto station, but it must be reserved 24 hours in advance and doesn’t start till 9am (so if you want to get to top sights before the crowds, this won’t work for you). Similarly, the breakfasts other reviews rave about must also be ordered 24 hours in advance. (Needing advance notice is fine - just would be nice to know that you need that much notice before arriving at the hotel so that you could plan ahead). The bus to Gion takes 30+ minutes depending on traffic. While it is very close to Omiya station, to get from there to most attractions requires several transfers to subway lines operated by different companies - so not cheap or convenient (and no pass that we found made getting around Kyoto cheaper or easier). Our taxi driver described the location of the hotel as a “very cheap area”. It’s not unsafe, but also not nice or visually interesting. Shops and restaurants are similarly very cheap (dive bars, 7-11, etc) and catered for the working class neighborhood - probably not where you want to stay if you have just a few days - there is no popping out the door and just doing something cool without spending 30+ minutes in transit.

This was one of my favourite hotels during my time in Japan. The rooms are a modern twist on the traditional Ryokan style rooms, and are exceptionally warm and welcoming. The breakfasts are delivered to your room at a time to suit you, and they were delicious! It's in a great location and there really are no faults to mention at all!

This place was a fun modern twist on Japanese tradition and my family of 5 was able to share one room for an economical stay. The kids got a kick out of the robot that greets you as you arrive and I loved the cozy Japanese pajamas that are provided to all of the guests during their stay. There’s an onsen on site and the rooms are ryokan style. We had no views – windows faced another building and were really just for ventilation – but the room was comfortable with microwave, electric kettle, refrigerator, and all the basic amenities. There’s a 7-11, cash machine and a several places to eat right outside. My kids loved the gyoza place around the corner, and based on the line, it's popular with many. I recommend exploring the tiny side streets with their fun tiny bars and restaurants at night, too. I wish I had had a little more time for that. Village Kyoto is located right across the street from the Shoji Omiya train station which takes you right to Arayashima. Go! It’s great little outing that offers a variety of activities. We loved the monkeys, the bamboo forest and a chance to visit the shrines and temples there. The hotel is also a 20 minute walk to Nijo Castle, which is also definitely worth a visit.

We really liked the hotel - especially the very modern public bath, nice relaxing experience. A good mix of a „standard hotel“ with a Ryokan experience. And the location close to the Omiya subway station worked greatly for us

The village Kyoto hotel is a great blend of traditional meets modern. The rooms are set on a traditional Tatami matting with futon bedding. Make it yourself every night it’s easy. The bento breakfasts are very tasty and delivered to your room at what ever time requested. The staff are extremely efficient and helpful and can guide you around the city a great place to stay with good location.

During My travel around Japan I wanted to stay in a Ryokan. This place is a good compromise. The rooms have futon beds which you have to make up. The hotel provides you with slippers and pyjamas which were comfortable. You also get included in your stay is full use of the onsen which in itself is an experience. The location is good too as it's right near the train station . Staff are friendly and helpful. It was exciting seeing a robot helping you, but that's the kid in me. I would definitely recommend this place for an authentic experience.

Our family of 5 stayed here for a couple of nights. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms are very clean and compact. The couches turn into your mattresses and you sleep on these on the floor in the traditional way. They supply pyjamas that you pick up from the reception area every night you are there. It's about a 20 minute walk to the Gion area and a 15 minute walk to Nijo station to catch the train to the bamboo forest and the monkey forest.

We really enjoyed our two night stay. It's a unique opportunity to experience a little Japanese culture - sleeping on futons on the floor, really small bathrooms (almost like on an airplane), Japanese pajamas and wooden slippers, and the public bath (which, if you can get over your shyness, is a really relaxing and soothing experience after a day of walking). The best part about this hotel is the location. It's in a quiet area of the city right by Omiya subway station. In fact if you jump in a cab and tell the driver "Omiya and Shijo Dori" you'll easily get there. About a $12 cab ride from Kyoto Station (which is about the same as the subway fare for four passengers). Walking distance to Nijo Castle. There's a great little bakery kiosk across the street. We stopped to get coffee at the 7-Eleven next door, twice a day. Service is formal, but helpful.
