Stayed for 4 nights and this was our favourite hotel for the Japan trip. We will book this hotel when we go Kyoto again. Location is fantastic. It's just a few minutes walk away from the main shopping area & train stations. Room is very new & clean. Very spacious. Staff is good too.

This hotel's location was perfect!! It was in the middle of so many food options. It isn't that close to the subway station, but honestly the environment surrounding the hotel makes up for it. This was my first time in Kyoto and this hotel was perfect for its location. The rooms were very spacious and clean as well. We did not eat at their restaurants, so can't rate the food. Staff were extremely kind and check in process was very easy. Views from the high floors are great!
