This time, I will tell you about the situation when I stayed at Prince Smart Inn Kyoto Shijo Omiya in May 2021.
This hotel is a Japanese Prince Hotel Group.
There are two other hotel brands called Prince Smart Inn. One is in Ebisu, Tokyo. The other is in Atami, Shizuoka Prefecture. The hotel in Kyoto is the third hotel. I visited on the opening day.
