My family of 4 (kids 7 and 9) visited this hotel for four nights during the height of the cherry blossom season in April 2014. We got room 202 and it was more than enough room for all 4 of us. The main king bed is larger than in the US and they brought in 2 rollaway beds for the... More

Stayed for 3 night in Kyoto at the beginning of December and I could not pic a better place for location & friendly staff. They also have an excellent Restaurant, french-japanese fusion kind, in case you didn't feel like going out for dinner after all day walking around Kyoto. The Hotel is also near other small cool and fancy restaurants... More

This is a bit of a late review I admit, but better late then never! Firstly, the screen is beautiful and clean and set in a quiet but transport friendly location. Connections to buses and metro was quick and easy and very close to great destinations like Fushimi Inari. While we stayed, my companion got quite sick (high fever) and... More

I hardly review hotels but really this was exceptional. The guyz at the front desk really made our experience of touring Kyoto an enjoyable one. Nothing was too hard for them, recommending amazing restaurants, local specialities, organising taxis, maps, reservations, bikes, you name it, it was there, all with a smile and a never ending bow!

This attractive boutique hotel is located in the center of Kyoto on the northern end of Teramachi Dori, where there are many interesting artisan shops and quality restaurants, both Japanese and foreign. The food for in room dining is delicious and reasonably priced (JPY 500 for continental breakfast and JPY 1,800 for dinner). The staff is young, helpful and creative,... More

This is special hotel - every room is designed differently and we loved our room which also included a nice surprise gift which was very tasty. Staff were extremely nice and friendly to us. My partner commented that he heard some loud noises at night coming from another room (you can guess what kind of noises...) so I guess the... More

If you like the sterile familiarity of a room in the Holiday Inn, this hotel is not for you. If you like small hotels with modern individuality though, The Screen will be right up your street. We had room 302, a corner room with lots of natural light. Huge comfortable bed, separate lounge area with large white leather settee. Free... More

Very big room designed by a couple of artists of Thailand, everything is white and a huge window wall which gives you a brilliant sight. More TV channels and one is with English. Free WiFi available in the room. Very friendly staff. One lovely girl with short hair gave detailed answers to every question, including how to go to main... More

For the price we paid, we were really expecting a lot better than this. First impressions were good - friendly service and a stylish lobby... but then we got to our room. We stayed in the room designed by a Chinese designer and .. well.. what can I say.. it was really poor taste. There was no window in the... More

After staying in hostels I decided to trip myself to something a little but nicer with my booking at The Screen. Overall it was just alright with nothing amazing. The breakfast options are quite expensive, the lobby and dining areas are tiny, the hallways to the rooms are dark, the location is not very close to any subway station (approx... More
