Having stayed in a range of accomandations in kyoto in the last 15 years, I would recommend this hotel for it nice views over the mountains, close proximity to the green subway line ( 3 dollars to the centre of Kyoto), it is surrounded by easy walking paths to view cherry blossoms in spring and autumn leaves in fall.
The subway is 6 minutes away and this connects you to most area,s , temples and shrines .
The rooms are slightly dated but spotless clean and the resteraunt had us drooling with the choice of food at a cost of $ 30.00 each.
It was a welcome change from the run of the mill tourist hotel, which caters for the coach driven mass tourist ( today is Tuesday, we must be in Belgium) and we are now not that keen to sleep on tatami mats like the earlier days.
The one thing I could not understand was that a Monday night was substantially cheaper than the Tuesday night.
Last but not least they arranged a taxi ride to the Osaka airport for $ 36.00 each person ,which collected us directly from the hotel and safely dropped us of at the check in counter.
