Yes, it’s close to the train station but the rooms are the size of a large closet and the bathroom is a tiny modular insert. The furniture was like you see in a Motel 6 but worse. It felt like being in a 3rd world country. My room faced the train tracks and it was just miserable. We were booked for 3 nights and I promptly cancelled the 2nd and 3rd night and booked into another hotel. They were nice enough to refund those nights but added $100 to the one night stay. I paid 330 yen - the most expensive hotel room of the trip and the worst ever. There are many hotel options in the Kyoto train station and directly across the street. Try others, don’t settle for this place.

Room Tip: Don’t take a smoking room no matter what. You can’t breathe.

Stayed three nights in peak cherry blossom season . Hotel is all about location. Super convenient , as short walk to main train station , Kyoto Tower , shopping complexes , and great eating places . Downsides were really smelly bathroom and shower curtain that did its best to smoother us each morning ! Also , breakfast was crazy busy . Almost no food left when we dined . Also really needed some fruit offering ! Accept these things , and you will still appreciate the location the most !

It's very near from Kyoto Station, just need 5 minutes to walk. I spend the night for two nights. Even the room very small, but it's pretty comfortable to rest. I'm so in love with the origami and kimono prepared on bed.

The APA is excellent value, the room was clean but very small. The staff friendly and efficient with good English. The hotel is near many shops and restaurants,just 300m from kyoto main railway and bus station. The lift , shower, lighting, frig, flat tv all operated; there is little well cupboard space. The bathroom is small clean and OK.
The hotel is good value, the buffet breakfast is excellent. I will stay again.

My wife and I stayed at this Hotel for 4 nights in mid-November, 2017.

The bedroom is not large but adequate. It would have great if they would put in two/three additional wall-hooks – for backpacks and some other personal effects instead of these being put on the walking path of a small room.

The Front Desk and the Restaurant’s service staffs were courteous. The breakfast buffet was quite well worth the additional charge levied. However, be prepared to queue unless you are early. The hotel is located conveniently for breakfasts nearby if you prefer. Lunch and dinner options are similarly convenient therefore.

The hotel’s location is excellent for whatever you may wish to do in Kyoto, or wherever you may wish to travel to/from Kyoto. It is 10-12 minutes-walk from Kyoto Station.

I'd recommend this as a reasonably good-value hotel in a great location.

Room Tip: Take the Breakfast Option, but be early or be prepared to queue
