I stayed here for 5 nights while on business in Kyoto. On getting to my hotel room I realized that I had been given a smoking room. To be honest I cannot remember if I had stated a preference when I made my booking so this may not have been the hotel's fault. I went down to the front desk to request a room change. I was told that all non-smoking rooms were filled that night but that they would switch me for the remaining 4 nights of my stay. This they did. Overall, I was very impressed with high quality of customer service at this hotel. The hotel was very well staffed and staff always greeted you with a smile and bow whenever they saw you. The doorman also handed me an umbrella as I was leaving the hotel one afternoon as it had just started to rain. We used the concierge service once and was a little surprised that it was not staffed by someone with a better command of English. Having said that the young lady staffing the desk was very helpful and was able to provide us with all the information we wanted. The room was very clean, spacious, and well appointed - complimentary razor, toothbrush etc provided. The shower was very spacious which I liked. The hotel bar on the second floor of the hotel was particularly comfortable and we enjoyed a few night caps there. The hotel has a restaurant and gift shop, neither of which we used. The hotel is in a good location with numerous bars and restaurants within walking distance. There is also a subway stop about a 5 minute walk away. Overall, I had a good experience at this hotel.
