The rooms are small for foreign standard. The quality is good and everything was tidy.
One strange thing is that you get an old key to open the door, which we struggled with in the beginning.

We choosed this hotel since it was very close to the station.

Stayed: October 2017

We stayed for 4 nights in a twin bed room and from Japan Standard the room was big enough. The hotel is just 5 min walk from the JR station if you exit on the west side along Isetan store. You have various dinning options in Isetan and also in the Porta dining. Downtown is just 10 minutes by bus and thus it is among the best places to stay in Kyoto.
Although because of its distance from station is not much you can be disturbed by sound from the trains which start early in morning.

I was expecting 'small' so booked a small double-room which was just big enough for me travelling solo. No room to leave a suitcase open, and no wardrobe (there were pegs on the wall with hangers) so have some fun being creative with your luggage/clothes storage.

The room itself was very, very clean and well-maintained. The bed was very comfortable and the air-conditioning was great. Internet connection in the room was excellent. The buffet breakfast was quite good (not much in the way of western fare) but I was more than happy with the Japanese dishes on offer. Very close to Kyoto station which made getting around very easy, and the hotel/area was surprisingly quiet The staff were very, very polite, pleasant and helpful.

Only one small point. Travelling by myself, a bit of distraction via the TV at night is pleasant. There are English language movie channels but there don't seem to be any English TV channels - even the BBC News is dubbed in Japanese. Not a major issue though as I didn't visit Kyoto to watch TV :)

I stayed eight nights - and I'd stay there again.

Our restaurant "Ginyuba" is famous for Tofu and Yuba unique to Kyoto.
When you come to Kyoto again, you can have lunch and dinner there.

If you visit Kyoto again, we hope to see you again at our hotel.

This is my second time staying at the APA hotel Kyoto-Ekimae and it is as good and reliable as I remember from my previous visit 2 years ago. This time I bought my parents a long for the trip. Rooms are small-ish but it's not any different from other business hotels around Japan. The bathroom was clean and had useful everyday amenities as well as fast wifi.

The location can't be beat as it is only 2 blocks from Kyoto Station; Exit through the North Exit towards Porta. Turn left and walk straight, past the BIC store on left and 7/11 on right.

The main bus station is also right beside the Porta Entrance where you can catch the bus to get to Gion, Philosophers Path, Silver/Gold Temples, Kyu-mizudera, nishi-markets,etc. Consider getting the day pass if you think you'll hop on/off more than 3 times to get your moneys worth.

If I come back to Kyoto I will definitely book this hotel again if it's available.

Room Tip: Take North Exit from Kyoto Stn otherwise a pain to get across the tracks and find the hotel.

Value for money hotel. I stayed in a single room which is small but has everything you need. Wifi is quite slow at night. Staff is helpful and can converse in English. Convenient location a short walk from the station.
