I stayed here a few years ago as a single traveler, and this time I came back (from Jan. 2-5) with my boyfriend.
We had a lovely, lovely stay here. I loved all the little touches, such as a calligraphy demonstration and instruction for the New Year, tea ceremony every morning and the explanations for traditional decor. They were also kind enough to post my postcards for me.
The rooms seem to have expanded hugely in the years since I've visited. The rooms were very luxurious, and I thought the bathrooms in the rooms were adequately sized. But if you love hot tubs, you should definitely visit their public bath in the basement -- it's SO relaxing! I'd been too scared to try it the last time I stayed but now I'm more comfortable in this setting.
The hotel staff was great. They helped us a lot, calling restaurants to see if they were open, making reservations for us, pointing out places of interest on the map. The hotel is located in a wonderful neighborhood, within walking distance of top-quality restaurants. This is a great place to stay, and such a good value, too!
