Hotel Kanra is a gorgeous boutique hotel situated just 10 minutes walk from Kyoto station. We had a room on the top floor (5th floor), and it was very peaceful and private. Throughout our stay, we didn't run into anyone else on the floor! The decor is stunning - a mix of traditional and modern Japanese. Our room had a lovely tatami mat sitting area, shoji screens, a generous bed, and a beautiful cedar Japanese bathtub. The service was wonderful too. The staff had some great recommendations for a soba and kushiage restaurant, which were the best we tried on our 3 week trip. The Japanese breakfast is worth the price, though I would caution against the Western breakfast, which is more of a Japanese interpretation of what a Western breakfast is. They stock gorgeous yukatas as well. We would definitely stay again.
