First two nights of our Japan trip were at this hotel and in terms of location you couldn't beat it. We were upgraded to a larger room, which was nice. Really nothing I could fault about it, its a good quality, standard western style hotel. Aside from being over the train station, its right next to the bus station as well, which in Kyoto is a great transport option. Very easy to use and you can get to all the major tourist spots from here.
