Spend 4 nights and really enjoyed. It is small hotel, beautiful rooms( modern and yet feels very Japanese), helpful hotel staff and great location! A big plus hotel is offering bikes with electrical support. We used them almost every day and it helped us to see much, much more of Kyoto. Public transport is good in Kyoto, but using bikes let's you go wherever you want to and so you have much more chance to discover hidden treasures of this amazing town.
One thing is to improve is their breakfast. As someone said in the previous reviews it is not special for the price you pay, so definitely skip it and go local!
Make sure you check Japanese version of hotel's web page reservation engine. The prices usually are lower than on English version ( with chrome browser it is easy to make reservation), strange that they do not offer the same prices on their English version web site.
