HOTEL UNIZO Kyoto Shijo Karasuma
This is how the flow is when fully open. The biggest problem with this hotel is the water pressure of the tab. It was annoying.
Laundry machine is available near the reception. Need to pay to use it.
Charging adapter with multi shape ends.
There is a bath tab. The size is quite small. The same type as APA hotel group.
The front desk can lend you a nail clipper. Very convenient for the long trip. We wonder what else we can lend from the hotel.
You do not need to press the floor button in the elevator. You only use your card to place it in front of the sensor.
You have 5 star hotel level amenities such as sewing kit (which you anyway never use), hair band, body location, mouth wash etc.
The entrance is nice with the lighting. The reception has a small stone garden.
Air cleaner is almost every hotel in Japan.
But the functionality differs.
1) some can be silenced.
2) some can turn off the lights of switches so that it does not bother you when you sleep even if it is on.
Well, at this hotel the one was normal with no differentiator.

1. Room is small (single room)

4. Small bath tab like APA hotel
5. No personnel at around the mid night (It should be a timing related though, when we came back, there was no personnel at the reception. The guest was looking for the staff to check in)
