To be clear, this is NOT a hotel, it is an apartment you are renting. You are required to check in at an office building not in the Kyoto Station as stated, but by the Kyoto station. Directions are given, but the signs are in Japanese, so good luck finding the place. We walked around for an hour before someone came out to find us. It was a horrible experience. This is a most strange apartment in that it is about 15’ wide by 85’ long. The bedroom is at the far end and the bathroom is at the opposite end. Everything is as was advertised, but some things to note, there is no dining table or living space. The only place to eat is at a counter that is to low to stand at and too high to sit at (and I am tall) There were 8 rather uncomfortable dining chairs in the kitchen area, but no table. With no family area, the only place to relax was in the bedroom on the bed. There is no sofa or stuffed chairs to relax in. If you speak and read Japanese, your stay will be more relaxing. The only TV we could get to work was Japanese channels. The location was nice and walking to the shopping area and getting to the temple and pavilions was easy. Overall it was not a pleasant stay.
