We loved it! Building is carefully remodeled, room was spacious, breakfast was fantastic, staff was so very friendly and helpful in every way. We loved being out of the center on a quiet canal, note that you do have to commute to get downtown but we sometimes walked, sometimes took the bus, and it wasn't bad.

Nice location and great staff. The hotel was recommended by friends that stayed in few years ago and I think it was a good tip. The hotel is very clean and cosy. The small garden is a plus for some relaxation after tours. We'd tried 2 rooms. Definitely the Nairobi was better than the Kyoto.
