The hotel is far from new, although the position is good if you want to explore Kyoto and of course travel to other Japanese destinations via the train. However the rooms are worn and a little disappointing compared to other Japanese hotels we stayed in. In the rooms there was no english tea available and you had to buy the coffee, whilst Japanese and chinese tea was free, which we felt was geared to getting the tourists to pay extra! a little exploitation maybe!
Also and I know this was maybe a little sad but there were no English speaking channels on the TV at all - yes yes I know! but believe me after you have been in Japan for a week you do crave a little of you own language for comfort - or maybe I felt homesick!
We were checked in to a 2 x single bedded room which was wrong and no effort was made to correct this when we complained.
The staff were very helpful and the breakfast OK, but the general feel of the hotel felt a little dirty and old, especially as the general Japanese standard was excellent, this hotel was not as good and I would not recommend it.
