Onyado Nono Kyoto twin room
The name of this hotel is a portmanteau of “onsen” (hot spring) and “yado” (accommodation) and it perfectly sums up what this place is about. It’s a large hotel that is popular with Asian tour groups that offers Japanese-style rooms and a nice on-site hot spring bath (of course, all rooms have en suite bathrooms as well).

The hotel feels a bit like a large ryokan once you’re inside. And this feeling is heightened by having to remove your shoes as you enter the hotel. Some might find this troublesome, but it gives the place a very Japanese feeling.
Rooms are small-ish but adequate and there are some family rooms that can house up to four people.
Given the short walk to Kyoto Station (about 10 minutes’ walk), the nice “onsen” bath and the reasonable rates, this is a good choice for those in search of a Japanese-style hotel at budget/midrange rates close to Kyoto Station.
