Every hotel in Kyoto was booked solid for the peak of the cherry blossom season and this hotel was the only one we could find. It is VERY expensive and quite ordinary. It is huge and stands alone along a lake with admittedly a great view. It's not near restaurants, temples or train stations. The rooms are spacious with individual Japanese baths in each room. I really can't figure out why anyone would pay the extraordinary price for such an ordinary hotel. Maybe it's a conference hotel where patrons pay with other people's money? Very curious indeed.
