Kyoto Rich Hotel Feb 10, 2016
First impression when I went to the lobby of this hotel was "Wow, like a business hotel!" It looks nice, proper, slightly on the "rich" mode.
First impression when I opened the door to my room was "Wow, super small!" It went from "rich" mode to "pitiful" mode.
Location is really good if you want to be away from the Kyoto Station crowd, yet want to be near a train station (Kiyomizu Gojo). This place is located about 5 minutes walk from the station and has an eatery just a stone's throw away. Family Mart is around the corner. They offer free bicycle rental and Kyoto Station is only about 10 minutes cycle away.
It comes with a TV with a number of channel selection but nothing in English, so I can really make do without a TV anyway. They do provide toothbrush, shaver, indoor slippers, yukata, hair dryer, electric kettle and tea, hangers, mini fridge, phone, full length mirror.
Bathroom is small with a bathtub, but really low. At my height, I was just about 10 cm below the ceiling, I can't imagine if a caucasian would take a shower there.
Bed was slightly on the hard side but for me it was ok. Room has no air conditioning, only heater with 3 modes - low, medium and high. But even the low was too hot for me so I ended up sleeping with the window opened with low heat.
Breakfast is provided with a small charge.
Wifi was ok. Occasionally get disconnected but bearable.
Overall it was ok, but I'd probably try another place if I go again next time.
