I was actually looking for hotels a little less pricey, but the location seemed perfect for what we were going to do during our short stay in Kyoto.
The rooms are really spacious for being in Japan. They are a little bit dated; maybe a remnant from the bubble years? The rooms have all the amenities you need, and every room has its own Wifi connection. We did not have such a good view, but we were not going to stay so long in the hotel anyway. Note that you normally pay per person in Japan, instead of paying only for the room.
The western breakfast, which we had, was good, but unless you have big breakfasts you should probably opt to go to a local café or buy at the convenient store close by.
The keeper for this hotel is the service. No one was stand offish, but did everything perfect. When there was no taxi, the woman concierge run out (high heels on) to 367 (Torimarudoori?) to get one for us.
The location is a short to medium walk from Yonjodori where most department stores are.
