The pluses: Great location and access to transportation; fabulous big shopping and dining complex in the JR station just a few steps away; easy access to the Karasuma-Dori (a major north-south street); pleasant breakfast rooms with range of options; clean bathroom; free in-room wifi; in-room amenities including toiletries, slippers, robes, trouser press, and fridge; clean bathroom; and free safety deposit boxes at front desk.
The drawbacks: Dated in-room decor in our second floor room in the main building, light staining on the upholstery and on the wall above the headboards, horizontal surfaces (i.e., headboard, beverage centre) would not pass the "white glove" test for dust, testy hairdryer, tea machine near vending machine marked out of service, no stamps available at the front desk, no fitness facilities on site.
Bedding was very basic - a light bedspread that many might prefer to fold down instead of sleeping under, top and bottom sheets, and one pillow per bed. No blankets or extra pillows stored in the room but probably available on request.
Housekeeping's eco-service door magnets were a little confusing (e.g., towel change only, garbage only, etc.). Bedmaking and bathroom tidying were not mentioned on any of the abbreviated services so we opted not to use any of the magnets in order to avoid returning to an unmade room. However, we certainly didn't need a linen and robe change for a two night stay.
