Lots of style but little substance. Our room (203) was a good size but divided up strangely. The bed area had a huge bed with gap between its foot and the wall of less than one metre. The wall mounted TV encroached in to this space, which meant you had to bend down to walk past. It had a vast... More

Even if we hadn't just spent the night sleeping on the floor in a traditional Japanese ryokan, we still would have appreciated the wonderful accommodations at The Screen. "Toyo" greeted us with flawless English and offered a welcome drink after a long day of travel. He went on to make dinner reservations and arrange for a taxi. Toyo was the... More

High Tech, Design and even Romantic. if it is possible to combine. But there are. Good location. Friendly place, a good and helpful reception and a delicious breakfast. There are a fine restaurant also but we did not tried it. Next time we sure will.

Hotel was amazing, we didn't get the high end room (there were more expensive rooms) but it was still unique and the most spacious room we've had in all the 4 cities we visited in Japan. Staff was amazing, especially the one who checked us in. His english was impeccable and coupled with the amazing way the room was always... More

The staff at this hotel were lovely and extremely helpful. They helped us with dinner reservations and arranged for our luggage to be sent to Tokyo and anything else we needed. We had a suite room and had it booked for 3 people. The room was huge and very well decorated and very comfortable. It had a sound system that... More

We stayed with my little daughter (1.5 year old) and it was very convenient. The hotel is located near touristic places and at walking distance (10-15min) from the main street with all restaurants and shops. The staff was very helpful and kind. Our room was a huge room (semi suit) all we needed for our little child to move around.

The hotel boosts a good location. I stayed in the suite room which was super large. Each room is unique and designed by a different artist. The lobby and corridor are a bit different, for me it was strange, but for some it can be quite interesting. It was carpeted and very dark. The rooms are light and bright from... More

This is a small boutique hotel with less than 20 rooms located near the imperial palace in Kyoto. Each room has its own design and even the smallest room is fairly large with a size of 35 sqm. You can ask for a specific room when you book as each is distinctively unique with very different type of styles in... More

My partner and I stayed at The Screen, Kyoto in July 2013. Our room was excellent - small sitting area with contemporary furniture, great bed and amazing spa bathroom. The hotel has a lovely roof terrace with a great view of the river and surrounding area of Kyoto. Plus, there are free bikes to use - we cycled all over... More

Super boutique hotel, with unique and stylish rooms, excellent service, and a great location in a wonderful part of the city - quirky shops, great bakeries, and a short walk (approx 20 mins) towards the centre, 5 mins to the Imperial Palace. Try the rooftop bar, it's a great way to wind down after a day's sightseeing and to enjoy... More
