We stayed at the Sakura in late March for 3 nights.
The location is pretty central and only a 10-15 min walk from the main train station. It can be a little hard to find once you are in the street so look for a red flag out side the hotel and it is almost opposite the back of the Kyoto Museum.
The hotel is both a hotel and ryokan offering the two styles of beds and both western and traditional breakfasts.
Rooms have everything you need and are both spotlessly clean, and spacious. The hotel itself is quite traditional but has the advantage of a small lift if you need it.
The hosts are wonderful, warm and very welcoming. Nothing is to much trouble with assistance from advising on restaurants to activities.
The location in a quiet street is great as it is just a few minutes walk to the station and buses which will take you to all the temples, Nara (a must) and surrounding areas.
Overall a great stay and would stay again.
