Excellent and beautiful hotel in Kyoto! Rooms are great, service is superb! Concierge service top notch. The best hospitality you can wish for. Complimentary bicycle tours offered by the hotel in the morning are so refreshing and give you an idea how to spent your day. Breakfast both the western style buffet and Japanese style restaurant serve delicious options, excellent looking and tasting food. Spa services -- uh oh - cannot complaint but nothing to brag about...

Check-in and already receive welcome fruit and Petit Four hospitality in the room. The popular Italian restaurant serves dishes recommended by young chefs. From antipasto to main dishes and desserts, they are all delicious. It's popular with women. A long cloth laid under your feet. The "foot throw" is also set up as a matter of course. The turndown service was also perfect. Because you can choose the newspaper you are reading at home, you can enjoy your hotel life as if you were at home. I was able to spend a relaxing time in the furniture inside the hotel.

We stayed at 4 nights at this magical hotel in Kyoto. Our room was clean, bright and modern. The breakfast buffet was amazing. Both the western option and the Japanese option were fantastic! What sets this hotel apart from others is the SERVICE. We were treated like royalty. Ever need was catered for. We took a Japanese treat making class that the hotel offered and it was incredible. So fun and memorable. My daughter took an in-house origami class which she loved. While we were checking-out her origami teacher gave her a present of origami paper and a photo of her while taking the origami class. We had an incredible visit !
