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

Loved staying at The Screen. Doro/Todo (sorry about spelling) at reception, impeccable service, sense of humour and care. Each suite designed by different Italian decorator, Room 12 was lovely, plenty of space and great ambience. After sleeping on a tatami for 2 nights in a traditional Ryokan, we felt truly relaxed and comfortable at The Screen for 6 nights. Restaurant... More

The service is impeccable. Our room is the biggest hotel room I have every been in and stylishly furnished New York Style. The staff were extremely helpful and answered our every questions about Kyoto. It is quite central to everything in Kyoto. The restaurant in it is excellent too. We tried the degustation with Kobe beef. Best beef we have... More

I had a pleasant stay at the Screen. Located at the corner of Teramachi and Marutamachi dori, the hotel is not too far from the main Sanjo-Shijo area, 10mins walk from Marutamachi subway or Marutamachi keihan train on the east side of the river. The neighbourhood is great, with a mix of peaceful traditional mood (old shrine with markets and... More

We stayed in Room 302 (Cherry Blossom in Winter) and found it so comfortable for our three-night stay in Kyoto. It was refreshing after our stay in a smaller room in Tokyo to have so much space to spread out our suitcases. The hotel was very quiet and we slept well in the true King bed. The hotel and room...
