We booked this hotel via Agoda after reading the reviews on Agoda and Tripadvisor. I travelled with a 6 year old child. We got a discounted rate for a triple room and they prepared the room on that basis. However upon arrival when they found that there was only my 6 year old daughter and I, the removed the additional bed the following day.
I had an allergy to their down pillows, and they managed to remove and replace those too.
The staff at reception was very helpful and spoke very good English. of course I was particularly impressed by Brent, (forgot to ask him where he was from). When we arrived too early. I asked if he could assist me in making arrangements for my daughter and I to join a sweet making class near Nijo. He called the company on my behalf, made the reservation for me and gave them all my details and translated for me the instructions given by the shop. Also pointed me to the right direction transport wise.
The hotel is fairly close to bus stops and subways station. Since I was travelling with a 6 year old who is not accustomed with too much walking, the location of the hotel is quite central making it not too expensive to take taxis too. It cost us Y1,100 from Kyoto station to the hotel. and about Y1,200 to Kiyomizudera.
You will be spoilt for choices in terms of places to eat. On the left side and right side of the hotel. There is an International supermarket right next to the Hotel, a pharmacy just across the road and a 24 hour Burger King if its something you fancy in the middle of the night.
The hotel has free wifi which was excellent. And overall we have no complains! Good service, great room, great location! Whats there not to like?
