This hotel is not cheap but overall it is a good standard. It's located in the Gion area of Kyoto with quick walking access to the bustling narrow streets, where traditonally the Geisha's would have been located. The highlight of this area is the Kennin-Ji Rinzai Zen temple, a short walk away - a stunning place and not too tourist focussed. This was the first Zen temple established in Kyoto.
Back at the hotel, the traditional Japanese rooms have futons, low chairs, excellent bathrooms and some free-ish wi-fi. [Hot tip - plug into the wall LAN if you want proper bandwidth.]
If it was cheaper then it would be 5* rated on trip advisor - but then you are dealing with high demand all year round in this amazing city.
As other's have observed the staff are super helpful, even selling you bus tickets to get around the city cheaply.
