Reviewed 14 January 2010

I have to say there are not many places outside Tokyo where you can find people speaking fluent English and with rooms the size you are used to in the West so I wasn't expecting Mystays to be any different (why should it?). I was unable to make the reservation via Internet so I had to call the hotel and speak to them half in English half in Japanese - they wrote back in English to confirm so that part worked fine.
We then stayed 3 days in a single room and my parents stayed in a double. The hotel is new and the location is great, you are 5 min by bus from Gyon, 10 min from the Imperial Gardens and at one of the main subway intersections in Central Kyoto so you can't really go wrong. The staff are quite helpful although not all speak fluent English (I have a working knoweldge of Japanese so I got by). They pointed me to the a few nice inexpensive restaurants when we asked for it and ate very well (well, you almost always eat well in Japan anyway). Only issue, beware if you have lots of luggage, the room was a little small and there was little storage space But for less than 10,000 per room you can't really complain.
However they wanted to push up the rate from the friday night to 20,000 and we said no, and decamped to Osaka which is only 15 min by train and a free ride if you have the Japan Railpass.

We agree with all the good reviews. The location is good, and the rooms (we had 2 rooms, a single and a double) were small but spotlessly clean. Great staff. There is a nice Japanese restaurant attached on the ground floor. I don't think it's really connected to the hotel, but it was great too.

Dear Sir or Madam

Thank you very much for your comment.
We appreciate that you liked us and the restaurant too.
You can have traditional Japanese breakfast which has got fresh fish and vegetables there.
The good thing is that you can choose two different types of breakfast.
You can have ''Sushi'' as dinner as well.

We are looking forward to seeing you again.

Sincerely
