When we arrived in Kyoto by Shinkansen we had a lot of trouble finding this hotel. It took us almost two hours, but finally we arrived. This is one element in which I think the hotel could improve upon: provide clearer maps on how to reach the hotel from the train station in Kyoto. Besides that our stay was pretty comfortable and excellent. The hotel is located in Kawaramachi, which provides easy access to the Gion district (walking distance) and also the many bar/restaurant areas in that same area. The famous Nishiki market is also only about one minute away on foot from the hotel. We choose this hotel because most other options such as hostels and ryokans were fully booked for our dates, but we did not regret staying here. In contrast to many other accommodations, this hotel actually provides a free breakfast! It's not very varied, but it is good enough. Fresh bread, rice, salad, etc. For travellers this is extremely helpful to get some energy in the morning and to prepare for a long day of walking. Our room was ok, bed and pillows were a bit hard but we managed. Room was comfortable overall. Bathroom was small but it works. Would also recommend staying here for travellers exploring Kyoto. Perfect to walk to Gion from here.
