I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The rooms were spacious, clean and filled with useful amenities. Great service too. Only downside is that it's located a bit too North from Kyoto central but they have free shuttles going to and from a station that's four stops away from Kyoto station.

Close to Imperial Gardens and a little out of the way for Gion etc but easy to catch a taxi or subway. It's a nice walk when warm but can be long if you're underdressed and cold in the winter. The service was impeccable - they are incredibly welcoming. The concierge recommended and booked restaurants all of which were excellent... More

We stayed here over the Chinese New Year. Our room was nice, decent size. The hotel was abit out of the way, so you end up walking a lot. Would be better if they had a shuttle service to kyoto station.

Although the location is a bit far out from any tourist attractions the hotel offers a free shuttle bus to the center of the city where you can take a short subway ride to Gion district and shopping areas easily. The lobby area is very beautifully designed. The room is large with modern decoration and very clean. The bathroom is... More

We stayed here for several nights on a recent trip to Kyoto. This is a wonderful hotel and exceeded our expectations. The price, cleanliness, and quietness are all outstanding features and we highly recommend it. The hotel was a challenge to find on foot and in the dark the first time. It is a 15 minute walk from the nearest... More

We dined in the Japanese Restaurant on our first night to sample some traditional cuisine which was just such a lovely experience; the waitresses were wonderful and explained what was what! Breakfast was excellent with a good... More
