I stayed with my boyfriend in Kyoto from the 24th till the 27th December. The hotel had just opened the 22nd December, therefore everything was brand new and very tidy.
The personnel at the reception was very polite and kind.
The room we stayed in was very nice and average sized. The bed was confortable, the bathroom was always clean and tidy and we were given clean pyjamas, towels and slippers.
Tea is free, but if you consume coffee it comes from the minibar bill.
The hotel has at the second floor a lovely bath with quality products to choose from after having had a dip. There is shampoo, conditioner, cleansing milk and tonic.
The bath part is very clean and the water is very warm, which is very relaxing. You go in naked and have to wash yourself properly before entering the water. Outside the bathing area there are a few vending machines and it is very pleasant to have a drink after having had a bath.
The lounge of the hotel has 4 or 5 computers that can be used free of charge and very good guide books about the sights in Kyoto. I found this corner very useful to plan our stay independently without needing to ask the already busy personnel of the reception.
One thing we found extremely good was the breakfast. We had it even twice. Noodles, rice, pickles, corn flakes, all was available. Especially, the Japanese dishes were lovely and the rice was particularly good, I highly recommend this breakfast, as it gives a glimpse of Japanese cuisine.
The hotel is very well located and 5 minutes away from Kyoto station. It has a lawson shop 2 minutes away and the station area offers plenty of opportunities to eat.
In a nutshell, this is a great hotel and you really get value for money! I give it no less than 5 stars:).
