We absolutely loved this hotel and its position.
We did stay at hotel for 6 days- 4 days in twin studio through hotels.com (around $100 p/n) and extended our stay for 2 days in premier twin studio ($140), which is basically the same kind of room, just there was a balcony (did not use at all as too hot outside!) and a little sofa which can be converted in the extra bed, instead of armchair in non-premier studio.
Both studios were absolutely perfect for stay, very roomy, with comfy beds, controlled aircon, TV, armchair and small table, writing desk with chair, a kitchenette with microwave, hotplate, cups, plates, frypans, pans est; the toilet with amazing advanced technology which washes your bottom or front with warm water on pressing a button.
Fast wireless and wired internet in the rooms- free of charge. Launderette in the basement of the building is available for guests, with dryers as well, all for a small fee of 1-2 dollars. Rooms were cleaned daily, dishes washed, bedding changed, Reception personnel has a very good English and were very helpful, always greeting you on coming and going out, as all other Japanese people everywhere. Outstanding polite Japanese culture everywhere, never heard a raised voice or child crying loudly. Hotel itself is in the very city centre. Taxi in Kyoto is very cheap, don’t know about other cities. Was using taxi a lot because of affordability. There is Tesco food shop (hashimi, sushi, ready meals, beer, tea, bread est) may be 250 meters away and 7/11 opposite of hotel. There are 2 cafes very near hotel, with a good food and very affordable prices.
