This hotel is very expensive but provides roomy accommodation. Besides a very few amenities, it is just another very nice Western hotel. If you come to Kyoto expecting those delightful surprises that Japan is famous for, don't choose this hotel. No welcome tea, no little cakes waiting in the room, no artful box of Japanese-style bathroom clothes. And after paying a ransom (our room was over $300 per night for something I would expect to encounter in Chicago) everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, is extra-billed. There's over 10$ to use the pool, 3$ for the brew-it-yourself coffee and tea in the room, and no complimentary breakfast. I am sorry to have to whine about this but I hate gouging. In a country that is famed for its hospitality and where most urban hotels take pleasure in surprising guests with little favours or a charming onsen or lovely traditional breakfast, all as part of the price, this place falls well beneath the bar for value. If you want a very nice U.S. hotel room, this is the place for you, but if you are after Japan when you've come all this way, stay somewhere that enjoys treating you as a special guest.
