The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is very conveniently located, less than a 5 minute walk from the Gion-Shinjo metro station and bang in the middle of the Gion area. The breakfast offers a good selection of western and Japanese fare. They've tied up with a service, "Bebot", which you can access from your smartphone anytime during your stay in Kyoto. It's like your personal assistant. You can ask it to recommend restaurants, reserve them for you, ask it questions about the sights of Kyoto, travel questions, anything! It really helped us.
The rooms are really tiny but frankly, we were expecting that. So we went with very little luggage. There's enough space to open one big suitcase and one back pack whilst you are in the room. But the room was quite comfortable. They don't have a full day dining restaurant, they only serve breakfast but that didn't bother us since there are so many restaurants and izakayas around.
We loved the hotel for its location. Whilst travelling with a baby, it was really convenient since we could quickly come back to the hotel at nap time or to freshen up without wasting too much time.More
