My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon in Japan. Everything from the rooms, to the breakfasts, to the service was thoughtful and excellently executed. We had the Moon room, which while was somewhat absent of natural light since the window faced an alley way, it was still well lit within the room with all the lights on. The room was quite large compared to the typical Japanese hotel room, and beautifully decorated with a wonderful traditional lantern light, with a mix of modern and traditional. The only con was that the beds are separated into two twins with a bare bar of wood (part of the bed frame) in between, which can be tough for couples, but this seemed to be a common theme in most Japanese hotels we stayed at outside of Tokyo.
The breakfasts were delicious, with the sweetest fruit, most flavorful soups, and most chewy breads, and crisp croissants imaginable. A wonderful start to our event filled time in Kyoto.
The staff was extremely friendly, and spoke English extremely well. Don't be afraid to ask them for recommendations of tourist sights, stores, and restaurants. We had some of the best food during our entire honeymoon during our stay in Kyoto thanks to the staff's excellent restaurant recommendations (namely their recommendations for okonomiyaki and tonkotsu).
All in all, it was a wonderful stay, especially since it was so centrally located.
