Call me odd, but I don't want to stay in a generic looking hotel room when I'm in another country! Where are the shoji screens? Aside from that, it was a nice stay and the room was clean. They do supply you with yukata, but I don't care for the slippers that a million people have had their feet in. They have a public bath house up on the 13th floor which is awesome. It closes around 1am, so I decided to give it a try (and see if no naked people were there!) around 12:30am. One night was a success. I'm not too comfortable being totally nude in front of strangers, nor do I really want to see them! But this is the Japanese way. You must be nude to go in the public baths. There are some restaurants and a "100 yen shop" (equivalent of a dollar store) within a very short walking distance. But the train station is a little bit of a hike. We took the wrong route upon arriving and it took us almost 45 minutes while dragging our heavy luggage along in the god awful heat! But then we realized there was a much better way that only is about a 15 minute walk! Gion is also within walking distance and worth checking out. The staff were friendly and spoke some English. We arrived a little early so they held our luggage for us; And when we finally checked in we found they had already delivered it all to our rooms. There was a mini bar in the room, and the prices were surprisingly not outrageous at all! I was shocked when I went to plop down on the bed. It was solid like a board! But somehow I didn't sleep bad on it at all.
