6/10 Good

Was a little dissapointed since the hotel is a 4 star, the shower walls had visible dark mold. While taking a shower, the water would change from hot to cold every 10 seconds.

Convenient location and courteous staff. Just wish use of swimming pool and gym is made free for staying guest.

4/10 Fair

大声で叫びながらプールでビート板を投げたり、20m以上泳ぐ人用レーンに小さい子連れの家族が入って遊んでいたりしていても、プール係員は一切注意せず見て見ぬ振りで驚きました。私は前回20m以上泳ぐレーンで泳いでいて、たまたま足を止めて立っただけで、すぐに女性従業員がとんできて、レーンから出るよう注意を受けました。この不公平な扱いの差は何なのか教えて下さい。マナーの悪い客は放置で、なぜ私だけを待ち構えてまで注意する必要があるのか、非常に不快です。

8/10 Very good

Will not submit as 2022 should be good for all
Overall ok, but for 100EUR and in 2021, USB charging or at least an electricity plug on both sides of the bed should be available. The built in air-condition was very loud and not powerful - we had to ask for an additional blanket as it was too cold.

There was a free shuttle bus to the Kyoto Station. It’s walkable, but in the cold, the shuttle bus was better.
