Hearton Hotel great location for tourists Aug 16, 2012
Hotel Hearton Kyoto lies downtown and within a short bus ride to all the tourist attractions and the shopping districts. The service is pleasant with English speaking services available. Taxi services await guests for easy transport. Also bus services frequent the nearby bus stops. Room reservations can include smoking. The complementary all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet consists of both American and Japanese food with lenient early morning hours and a comfortable dining facility.

The only downside I have experience is that the room we booked was a little too cramped for my 6 foot, 200 pound stature. Be advised that if you travel to Japan, cramped compartments are normally dwarfed to complement their need to economically utilize space, since the majority of the country is mountainous. Also the television was nothing special as a pay-as-you-watch coin-op device.

For 12,000 yen a night per two people, I recommend the Hearton Hotel strongly based on its location within its rather central proximity to many of the tourist attractions in Kyoto city.
This bed is smaller than it looks.

Hearton Hotel Kyoto - Largest Room in Japan So Far! Mar 30, 2010
When we first arrived to Kyoto we thought getting to this hotel would be a breeze and decided to walk it. Don’t let the maps fool you; it took us about 45 minutes fighting bikes the whole way. Take the subway three stops!

After that, we were please to see that for Japanese standards the rooms were a decent size and the two double beds were okay, as well! That was a nice surprise after seeing my first room the night before which was well…tiny! Two people could actually walk past each other without bumping into each other and apologizing every 10 seconds. The décor was also quite nice.

The bathroom was clean, though the toilet was not heated which was a let down after the previous night’s hotel. Though when you take a shower, there is a square on the mirror that stays fog free. Brilliant!

I thought there was a free breakfast included but apparently not. It costs about 1000-1300 yen to eat and was always crowded, but there is a 7-11 close by so we opted to fill our refrigerator and eat breakfast that way for much cheaper. Free internet is included in the room, so that was a nice extra and greatly appreciated. Our favorite part was the music you could play in the room. The Japanese Harp Station was our favorite and on anytime we were in the room.

Just a word of warning for the faint of heart. When watching the TV, do not use the up and down arrows, but rather press the numbers on the remote, especially if there are children around. If you use the scroll button, it will bring you to porn channels, I kid you not! My friend and I found it funny as we are easily amused, but for people with families or people who find that kind of thing offensive you will not be pleased. Yes, they blur out the people's kibbles and bits, but you still definitely get the gist of what is going on.

The hotel is located near the Imperial Palace, Gion and Nijo-Ji (all a little hike), also the subway station is a block or two away which is convenient. I would definitely stay here again and being that it was Cherry Blossom season, the price was quite reasonable as we booked somewhat early.
Nice Big Red Room!

Sorry, dude, you had to pay for the porn. They would blank out the danger zones and the various activities going on in those regions so it would entice you to want to pay to see everything. I passed as Kyoto was fricken awesome and had plenty to see as far as culture!

Everything you need - well bed, shower etc. Aug 18, 2009
The Hearton was our base for the Kyoto part of our exploration. We arrived at the JR station and jumped off of the bullet train before it took us back to Tokyo and decided to walk to the hotel. This proved to be a bit silly, as it was quite a way away - dragging luggage in Kyoto heat is not recommended.

The hotel was on a side street, just off Oike-dori, one of the main roads through Kyoto. The first thing that hit me was the air-con; after the heat outside it was like walking into a fridge!

The rooms were spacious, with a comfy double bed, TV, kettle and bathroom with shower and evil toilet. The only problem was the view - we looked over a landscaped courtyard, right at a load of other rooms. All of these seemed to filled with excitable Japanese teenagers, and it was a little disconcerting to watch them point and giggle at me when I made the mistake of opening the curtains in just my boxer shorts...

The TV had a useful bi-lingual function allowing you to watch services like BBC News 24 in English and catch up on what was going on at home.

We didn't eat in the hotel, we preferred the chains of noodle bars for speed, convenience and cash; but there was a restaurant on the ground level. Looked a bit pricey mind.

Each floor had vending machines, including ice cream ones - which was exciting but pricey.

In all, it was perfect for what we used it for - a good base to explore the city and somewhere to lay our heads.
My room - excuse the mess.
Mmmmm bed.
Bathroom, complete with evil toile…
