Hotel is a very convenient 5 minute stroll from the station and bus station. I usually would never stay near the train station as they are usually int he worst parts of town however we are in Japan so its all safe.
I arrived in the morning so couldn't check in until 3 which was fine, they stored my luggage and I strolled back to the station where the 10 story Isetan was located. The english speaking information centre is based in here on the 9th floor so I stopped there to get some maps and use their internet. As it was raining i stayed in the area. I wandered back to check in at 3 and then as it had stopped raining headed out to see Kyoto.
The rooms were the smallest I had the entire trip. Not a lot of room for luggage. However they were fine. Given i was only sleeping here I don't get too worried about the room size. Staff always smiled and nodded when i walked through the lobby.
There is a bath on the top floor. I didn't go up however I did regularly seem to end up in the lift with men in robes so some people were definately using it.
If you are sightseeing then you will need to be on the buses so being located near the bus station is useful.
