I stayed here recently for about five or six nights. It's comfy enough though I smelled cigarette smoke in my room. The staff is exceptionally helpful, though I'm not sure if they speak English. I speak Japanese and found them wonderful. It is located fairly far north of the city center--nice and quiet but a bit a hike or subway ride (very convenient) or taxi ride. They have a Japanese breakfast, but you have to book that extra with your room. There is a small coffee shop, but I never actually saw anyone in it. Nice Japanese-style spa. The room was small, like a business hotel with the efficiency bathroom that seems to come out of central casting somewhere. Beautiful views of Daimonji and other north Kyoto sights--unobstructed by tall building or over-built neighborhoods.
