Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The best option in Kyoto. A new hotel in a great location and for a GREAT PRICE close to Gion and on a main drag with bus stops and metro with access to all the main attractions.
The hotel has an Anime theme and it is fun and colorful; the reception is on the 3rd floor, and they have a reception machine that basically can be operated without the involvement of the hotel employee. They even let you choose your room on the screen.

The lobby is great, with lots of space to hang and do laundry. After you check out, you can deposit your luggage in the hotel using you SAUICA/Pasamo card - amazing.
The rooms are tight, like so many hotel rooms in Japan, yet you have all you need in a room.
We paid a tad below $ 50 USD/night, which is a great value.

I ADORED this hotel! The design is really funky, and there are so many clever amenities from the check in machines to the luggage storage and laundry area. Nice little communal lobby/eating area with a balcony. The 7-Eleven downstairs is a godsend. Our room happened to have a view of Kiyumizu-Dera temple!! The rooms are small but I actually prefer that - don’t expect much floor space but it’s fine if you’re only spending time there to lay about or sleep. The whole place was just a perfect mix of funky, efficient, quirky, clean, and budget. The area is a little quiet but the transport connections are great and it’s easy to get everywhere. I highly recommend a walk along the river bank if you’re headed north to more touristy places. It’s so nice and quiet along the river and there is a surprising amount of bird life.

We loved out stay at Hotel Tavinos. It's location is really good, walkable distance to some of Kyoto's highlights. The room itself is not too big but big enough since you won't spent too much time in there anyway. The bed was super comfy and the bathroom nice and clean. Checking in was super easy using a self service machine and they even have a cool self service luggage storage machine. Highly recommend this accommodation since it's great value for money!

We stayed here for two nights and they didn’t clean the room, they only changed the towels and take out the rubbish.
The bed sheets don’t fit the bed properly so it’s annoying at night. That’s the main reason why we were expecting to tidy the bed at least, we at the reception desk they said that they only change the towels and take out the trash bin.
We had the bad luck of having noisy neighbors at the next room, so it was awful to sleep.

The hotel is really modern and nice, but there is only one person at the reception, but we had to wait a lot for the check in, and for storing our luggage (it’s through a machine).

Thank you for staying at Hotel Tavinos Kyoto. We are terrible sorry during stay. Our cleaning rule during stay is collecting used towel and garbage bags and setting new towel . If you need full cleaning for example, bed making and cleaning bathroom, and so on, It costs ¥2200-. About noise, your comments will be considered with care and, we are thorough to strengthen patrol in our hotel. Thank you for taking your time to write a review. Hotel Tavinos Kyoto Yamamoto

I am sorry about having to write this bad review but I think I must.
The price of the hotel and the location is quite good, the personnel is nice and polite but it’s not clean.
We rented a 3 beds room for one night and arrived at night, one of us woke up saying that there were bad odors spreading from somewhere, the other two did not feel anything, the morning after we checked the beds linings and one of them was urinated, there was dry urine in one of the beds. Then we discovered more dirt in carpets, and long hairs in another bed which didn’t belong to us.
Breakfast was basically 2 varieties of little cakes in plastic bags and coffee.
The hotel policy is not to offer compensations. I would not recommend the stay here.

Everything works smoothly at this professionally run hotel.

The rooms may not be the largest, but they are well-appointed, and the bathrooms are really good. Wifi works flawlessly.

In the reception area, you'll find kimonos to borrow and a drinks spot where you can get free tea, coffee, miso soup, hot and cold water, and in the morning, rolls and croissants.

There's also a coin laundry, and on the ground floor, there's a Seven 11 where you can buy food, drinks, and snacks to enjoy in the comfy chairs at the drinks spot. It creates a fun backpacker-like atmosphere.

A definite recommendation if you're staying in Kyoto for a couple of days.

Really cool design, easy check in/check out, amazing location, great price. The only reason it’s 4/5 is that the “breakfast” is one wrapped mini bun and coffee/tea. Being more transparent about this would be best that way we could prepare for breakfast. However with 7/11 being right below it wasn’t any real hardship.

The doors are low. I am 6’3” tall and barely clear the door frames.
That is the only negative I have.
The staff the met me were extremely professional, courteous and helpful.
The room was small but for a short stay completely fine.
I was very impressed with the level of cleanliness
I highly recommend this hotel
