Because of disabilities,I requested a barrier-free room to share with my granddaughter for a conference, and we got a very large room. Service was excellent, even when the employees didn't understand much English. They were kind, patient, and eager to help. I saw no one smoking within the hotel the entire week we were there. Beds were clean and very comfortable. It is located right across from the beautiful Imperial Palace site. Lots of temples and restaurants within walking distance.

Room tip: for disabilities, ask to be not too far from the elevator.

I wouldn't stay here again because there is no reason to stay so close to the former Royal Palace in Kyoto; the visit can be accomplished on a half day trip. The rate I paid was high because it was last minute. If I had no place else to go or I wanted to stay all day at the former palace grounds and park, I would stay here again but only if the rates were really good as it's nowhere near where I wanted to be location wise.

The hotel is very clean and the room was adequately appointed but nothing excessive or over the top. Window does open a little for fresh air. When you enter the room, you put your room key in a small box in the wall to turn on the electricity for the room. Breakfast buffet is extra. Staff is nice and polite.

Good stay, due to a very late booking, we had to change the room but everything went smoothly and well coordinated.

Walking distance to the subway stations (2 at least).

A bit so-so:
The lounge closes a 8pm and not many things around so.
The breakfast appears expensive due to the very limited choice.

I stayed here 2 years ago, and had to come back, especially for the breakfast. The breakfast is a choice between an awesome traditional Japanese breakfast, or alternatively a "western" breakfast. The breakfast tables look out over the garden with its pool and fish: very "spiritual".
The rooms are not very spacious, with limited storage space, but the location and breakfast and staff easily make up for this.

This hotel's location would probably suit a tour group or conference more than independent travellers. It is located just across the road from the imperial Palace and its gardens, but for any other sight you will need to struggle with public transport. The hotel is four subway stops from the central station, and then about 15 minutes' walk from subway platform to the hotel door. There is about 10 minutes' walk to the nearest convenient bus stop. (Bus 51 does run much closer, but only once every hour.) The hotel itself is fine. Our room was spacious, well designed and clean, with many amenities. The staff were very efficient, if a little less friendly than in other Japanese hotels. The wifi was fine.
