This hotel with tatami rooms is not bad, it’s close to Kyoto main train station (but quite far from the city center) and the owners are really kind (but they barely speak a few words of English). The hotel and the rooms look are pretty ugly and not so clean, expecially the ensuite bathroom. There is a public bath for relaxing, but is really small and worn-out. Anyhow, the hotel staff does its best to please you and in the end this could be a good choice if you need a hotel near the station and if you have a low budget.
