A small modern hotel centrally located in Kyoto with easy access to the bus system which is probably the best way of getting around. You get on the at the rear of a bus and exit at the front by the driver. If you intend travelling a lot on the buses it is worth purchasing (from the driver) a pass which once it has been entered into a device on the bus only need to be shown to the drivers on subsequent trips. On the one-day pass just over two trips is the breakeven point.
Our room at the hotel was extremely comfortable witht he bedroom section being a tatami matted area with an extremely comfortable western bed. Facilities in the room included a coffee maker (Nespresso), ethernet internet access, and all other facilities that one would expect in a hotel of this type.
Only negative is that the complicated unit on the toilet (bidet etc) and the air-conditioning controller were all in Japanese without any English translation. This was unlike all the other controls in the room.
This hotel is quite expensive.

Very modern, super clean and large bedrooms. Located very near Kyoto Imperial Palace gardens and walkable to Nijo Castle (20 mins). Staff so keen to please. Small restaurant tries so hard and delivers good food and wine. Within a few minutes walk are some well established bakeries in classical French style where you can breakfast. Oooommm!

We stayed at the Screen for 4 nights. We were booked into a large room but this room was totally designed in black color, same as in the hallways. Refused to stay in this room as was too depressing (one small window)! We got another room the day after facing the front street and temple, which was nice. In general though, the designs looked to us rather cheap and not practical (bathroom is a drama , use all towels you have to cover the tiles when taking a shower).
Skip expensive breakfast here in again a dark area and go for omelette or croissant a few blocks away. Seems for Japan strange to be: but only wireless in the lounge which is ok but not very comfortable. The bar upstairs was open, but no staff... Actually you won't see that many guests in general, saw be couple in 4 days.
Overall, ok, but price wise, I would have expected much better. Would not return but then stay in the Hyatt.

Stylish boutique hotel. Large rooms with comfortable "Simmons" beds. Jacuzzi bath very welcome after long days sightseeing. Bath products from aromatherapy associates. Staff very friendly / helpful. Good English spoken.

Free, fast Wifi available in reception and intermittently in rooms. LAN cable also available in rooms.

We stayed in this hotel last summer on our trip to Kyoto.

The hotel is well located, you can pretty much walk to the old district and a lot of sites are nearby with a good hike. But what was cool about the hotel is that each room is separately designed by different people, so it gives them a unique vibe. By Japanese standards, our room was huge, which was nice to be able to move around in easily.

Staff were great, spoke English and were helpful. If I was to go again, we would stay there for sure.
