Like others here we booked this hotel wanting a more modern take on the traditional ryokan. Our room was literally enormous and in fact we actually thought the bed was too large! Everything was spotlessly clean, though the shared areas are starting to look a little shabby. The staff were very friendly and took a lot of time to help us with our restaurant bookings. The only thing I would have wanted is some water in the rooms (though a 7-eleven is right next door). A great choice in Kyoto due to its location.
