To me, the location of a hotel, and how helpful and friendly the staff are, determine whether you'd want to come back again. If the room and amenities also rank up there, then you've got the icing on the cake. This hotel has it all !
The double room we booked was large by Japanese standards, and well equipped. It had everything we needed for our 5 night stay there. With Kyoto station just opposite, it was extremely convenient to get to our holiday attractions, once you've worked out which platforms and exits to use at the right time. We even ate a couple of times at the station restaurants and found them surprisingly good.
Each morning, we would talk to a concierge staff just to be sure our travel plans for the day was not fraught with errors, and every single person we had the pleasure of communicating with, was extremely helpful and courteous. Their knowledge of the English language was quite sufficient to make themselves understood, and where they needed someone who could speak better English, they went and got one. They were worthy ambassadors for the hotel.
We had breakfast there one day, and although that was good, it wasn't outstanding. What took our breath away was their dinner buffet, which featured snow crabs during our stay. We've dined in many 5-star restaurants and hotels during our travels, but this would would put some of those to shame.
I rarely say I would return to the same hotel or restaurant but for the New Miyako Kyoto, I would put it in the "I'll Be Back" category.
