This place is nothing short of amazing and honestly the only place you should be staying at in Kyoto, just the entrance had me in awe. The hotel is run exactly how a hotel should be run; clean, efficient and welcoming.

Stayed here for 3 nights while in Kyoto. Location couldn't have been more perfect. Close to the Nishiki market and walking distance to many of the attractions we wanted to see while in this beautiful city. By Japan standards the rooms are quite spacious and...More
Get one of the larger rooms and you get a little table and sitting area. Really nice rooms. Great location (there's a huge mile long mall behind those arches across the street) and a Starbucks and train station by the river. Staff speaks English and...More
We stayed in this hotel for a two day/two night hotel in Kyoto.
Check-in: Quick and efficient. The front desk staff were helpful throughout (booking us taxi's, restaurant recommendations, explaining the best way to get around etc.)
Rooms: The room was small but well furnished....More
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

We felt comfortable with leaving our valuables in the room. This was the case throughout Japan. On occasions we took our passports with us however there really is no need as we had no issues extracting cash from ATM... More
We felt comfortable with leaving our valuables in the room. This was the case throughout Japan. On occasions we took our passports with us however there really is no need as we had no issues extracting cash from ATM machines. Travelling in Japan is very safe, you would be more likely to misplace your valuables that have them stolen .... note: we travelled extensively between Tokyo, Hakuba Ski fields, Kyoto and Osaka using public transport ie buses and trains. You will more than likely be given things than have anything taken from you.

Don't remember having a safe in the room. I'm sure the desk will handle valuables. Japan being so safe, you could just lock valuables in your suitcase. Or contact the hotel and get a solid answer directly.
