We have booked this hotel very early, in Sep'15 for our Apr'16 stay. All reasonably priced hotels in Kyoto have been already booked. Considering the fact that it was a short ride to/from Kyoto Station and location of this hotel next door to JR Minami Kusatsu we decided that this is the only option. Overall we had a good stay. The room with queen size bed was very, very small but the bed was very comfortable. When we've put our luggage on the floor there was no room to walk around the bed. No closet or wardrobe for our clothes. We had to hang our clothes on two hooks. Pod bathroom was extremely small as well. It reminded us of cruise ship tiny bathrooms. Water was hot and plentiful and water pressure good. We had portable wi-fi unit so we did not use hotel's free wifi at all. TV had only Japanese stations, no English at all. Breakfast was ok, only Japanese options available plus scrambled eggs. Coffee was tasty. Good Japanese tea. Hotel is rather new and very clean, nice staff, even though they don't speak much English. Good option when you simply can't stay in Kyoto for some reason!

Room aren't as spacious as expected so once you open your suitcase you will find difficulty trying to walk around the room. However all necessities were provided including hairdryer, bathtub, TV, etc, room and toilet were clean as well and adequate. Just staying for a night before we continue on the road trip so the stay was relatively fine.

Well my headline says it all. Had to stay here as Boston Plaza was booked out. Super small rooms, the smallest I have seen in my life for a hotel and surprisingly rated so high. The room didnt have a window which opened to let sunlight in. Internet didnt work until we got a work around. Not recommended.

yes it was clean, but which place in Japan isnt?

Located right next to JR Minami Kusatau station and next to a family mart. A 29 minute train ride from Kyoto station makes it a bit far and there was minimal wifi in the rooms. The rooms were clean and small but the staff were friendly. Might think about staying somewhere closer to Kyoto station next time if it can be helped.

We stayed in this hotel for 6 days and had a pleasant time. We booked through Amoma and there were no problems checking in. Because of the peak season, we were not able to book a hotel in Osaka or Kyoto where we planned to visit the tourist sites, but this hotel was just across the Minami-Kusatsu station which is around 20 minutes from Kyoto station. With the Kansai Area Pass we had no problems travelling to Kyoto and Osaka.

We booked a semi-double room. Going in we were expecting a smaller room but we were surprised that we were able to stay comfortably. The room service is great. During the first day when we requested not to clean the room, we still found clean towels and bathrobes waiting outside our door when we arrived in the evening. Wifi in the room was fast. There's a Family Mart just around the corner, where we bought our midnight snacks which was very convenient.

Check out was very fast. The staff was very accommodating when we asked them if they can mail the pocket wifi that we rented.

This hotel is a very good alternative for tourists who will not be able book a hotel in Kyoto during peak season.
