The hotel entry looks a bit strange from the street but once you work out how to get inside, the hotel is great. Lovely staff, very helpful and they had some good tips for places to visit. The room was quite spacious by Japanese standards...More
Excellent location, surrounded by many places to shops and to eat that are not touristy. Within five miles of numerous historical sites, about 15 minutes taxi ride from Kyoto Station (fare is about 1600 yen). Wonderful friendly staff, very clean and modern facilities. refrigerator and...More
This is a great boutique hotel in the perfect location. I stayed in one of their premier rooms on the top floor so it was a little extra but well worth it. The staff are all lovely. The rooms aren't huge but there is more...More
The hotel is sleek and modern and the staff extremely courteous. It is in an ideal location and the price was fantastic. While most hotel rooms in Japan are small, this was to be expected. The toilet was a bit big for the size of...More
Ideal location, so close to shopping malls and a good base for tours. Service was second to none. Breakfast was a bit expensive so opted out and ate at the nearby bakery (virtually next door).
We paid extra for a corner deluxe twin room giving...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.

Go to the official web site of the hotel and click on the "Guest Rooms" tab -- there you can see floor plans for each of the classes of rooms and decide which one might best suit your needs. That will give you a much better sense of the rooms than a text description. Basically you are paying more for more floor space. It is a great hotel in a great city. I hope you enjoy Kyoto.

After flying long haul, especially with a child, the ease of a taxi is the best mode of transport in my experience. Realistically, the cost is nothing in the overall holiday budget and you just get to the hotel and don't have to worry about anything else. I cannot recall the cost, probably due to the affordability......... Great staff at the hotel with a nice little bakery next door for breakfast
