It took me ages to finally find a hotel in Kyoto - most ryokans and hostels seemed too expensive and had shared bathrooms but Eco + Tec had super clean, modern, quiet and comfortable rooms with private bathrooms. We stayed in a twin room for around 11,000yen per night - for Kyoto, that price is totally reasonable. The hotel is located in a pleasant back street in Higashiyama, close to a peaceful canal only a few minutes walk to the subway station. We walked to most places right from the hotel and took the bus from Sanjo station (10 mins walk) to the attractions further out. The hotel provides lots of little extras which sets it apart from the many generic business hotels found all over Japan... there was a help-yourself drinks counter with water, tea, coffee, a welcoming common area, free massage chairs (!!), great Wi-Fi and free laundry. We stayed for 6 nights and loved coming back here at night... the rooms were filled with sunlight in the mornings and birds twittered outside in the trees. There was a separate cupboard in our room to house our open suitcases - a great touch - why don't all hotels have these? The one and only criticism is that the hotel doesn't have an elevator so carrying a 20kg suitcase up the stairs can be tricky. There are only 3 floors though so I guess it's not that much of a drama. All in all, a GREAT hotel experience!
