First trip to Kyoto and was arranged to stay in this hotel. Nice ambience with busy coffee house. Staff were friendly showing us where to go with the shuttle bus. The hotel is located far away from the central Kyoto but is within 10 minutes walking distance to Kyoto Imperial Palace. Visiting the Imperial Palace is so easy but filling up a form and submit together with your passport and then you will be asked to join the tour which is 10am and 2pm respectively.
The hotel provide complimentary shuttle to the subway station which is 2 stations away but located in the central district. Nice effort by the hotel to mitigate their loss in the location.
We stayed here for 3 nights and find all staffs are well mannered and willing to assist you whenever there is a need arises. The guest room size is big in terms of Japan standard and they were doing their renovation when we were there.
