Everyone else has said what I want to say, so I'll just add on.
This place is awesome if you like the location to the nearby scenic and cultural areas eg Kiyomizu-dera and Gion district. Also, there is a subway nearby- about 10-15mins walk, 3 convenience stores and a 24hr supermarket around the corner, and 2 direct bus services to/fro Kyoto Central (JR Kyoto).
And yes, please make sure you have your own bath towels and toiletries.
And I love the staff! They are really friendly and helpful. :)
