I'll stay in this hotel again, no doubt about that. It is located above the Kyoto Station, which is very convenient wherever you want to go. Outside this station is also the bus terminal and the city bus where for 500yen, you can purchase a one day ticket for buses to tour the city. It brings you to almost all the 'must see' locations. It is definitely worthwhile to purchase the city bus ticket if you are planning on going to several places for sightseeing.
Located in the same building is the Ramen Street, Isetan Department Store and also many restaurants but they all close at 10pm.
The room is spacious and the bathroom/shower is out of this world. The concierge speaks perfect English and each one whom I have spoken to is ever so help and knowledgeable. There are three restaurants you can have breakfast but we always go to the international buffet because there is a good variety and the quality is excellent.
Everything about this hotel is so wonderful that it makes staying here a real pleasure.
