I liked this hotel. It is situated in the centre of Kyoto, a short bus ride away from the Gion district, and a 15 minutes bus ride to the main JR station (it is very easy to use the buses in Kyoto). It is a semi ryokan experience. There are the advantages of a ryokan with the privacy of a private bathroom. The room itself was large with enough space for five adults (at a push), and the floor was covered with tatami mats. The room had futons which were exceptionally comfortable. We left our futons as beds during our stay, and used the low table with cushions to sit on (bear this in mind if you are not very flexible). The rooms were very clean and well equipped with a TV, fridge, microwave, kettle and Internet access by LAN cable (no wifi). The staff were polite and helpful. Breakfast was provided in the room each morning at a time specified by the guest. There were three cold choices of suchi, rice, or bread. I enjoyed the breakfast, although it may not appeal to all tastes. I did not use the communal bath area.
Overall, my lasting impression is of a good value hotel, much better than most for the price in Japan. I would certainly stay here again.
