Chic, funky and friendly with a definite Japanese feel, we loved the Screen on arrival. We were greeted with a welcome drink, loved the suite with white leather sofa, huge bed, big bath tube, Nespresso each morning, bike rental, excellent location... The staff were wonderful and went out of their way to help us book the next leg of our trip to Hiroshima. Excellent!!

it is a good change from the traditional ryokan we stayed on our other night in the city. The boutique hotel is modern and chic. I wont call it luxurious, but our room is huge and has an amazing jacuzzi. Full of modern amenities. Hotel staff are also helpful and provided restaurant recommendations as well as assisting in making reservations. They also have prepared directions to take public transport (buses) to the various shrines and temples in the city. Very convenient and clear.

Room Tip: Each room is different. Book early to avoid disappointment.

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!
