By reserving a room almost 1.5 months in advance we got a really good price for a twin room at this quiet, contemporary, newish hotel right across from the Kyoto National Museum. Room was average size but the bathroom, especially the walk-in shower with the deep tub to one side, were luxurious--no shower curtain to hem one in during shower time. Rooms were clean, clean, well-stocked w/ slippers and fresh bathrobes and kimono pj's each night. Breakfast menu was not as great as other high-end hotels but fine. Staff was super attentive and the concierge even helped us make reservations at a moderately-priced hotel in Tokyo without sniffing his nose in disdain. Location was a stone's throw from the Raku Bus stop and a block from the regular city bus which we used extensively in our sightseeing. Bamboo forest out in front of the hotel gave a nice first impression. Taxi ride from train station was under ten minutes and about 10 USD.
