Clean room in a ryokan style, which was very nice and traditional. We were blown away by the hospitality of the staff, especially when we had to cut short our stay as they were fully booked over New Years, but they gladly helped keep our luggage after we checked out for a couple days. The breakfast was also good in a traditional Japanese set-up, and the staff in the breakfast area were friendly too despite our inability to communicate with them. Location was really convenient as well, as you are near Termachi and Nishiki markets, and big department stores like Takashimaya and Daimaru are 15 minute walk away.

The location is good, not fare from the main attractions. It is easy to reach the subways and the bus stations from the hotel. Only 15 minutes from Gion on foot and the shopping areas are very close.

The room: japonise style, well equipated. not a lot of space for the suitcases, good.
Breakfast: very good, you have to try it. Very tasty and the area to take it is confortable.

The staff is friendly but do not speak english very well ;) it is complicate to understand the explanations.

We only stayed at this hotel one night but it was one of our highlights of Kyoto.
We stayed in a private room with our own bathroom. The room was larger than expected and we were perfectly comfortable on the futons. There are extra mattresses if you need a little more padding underneath.
The Japanese breakfast (included) was a highlight and a great way to start the day. Be prepared to challenge your concept of breakfast if you are used to a continental style. The kitchen staff were charming and helpful.

I stayed here with my two children during the Gion Matsuri festival and parade in July 2014. The location could not have been more perfect (just a few steps from the parade route). As other reviewers have mentioned, it is not a brand new facility, but that adds to its charm and the staff were so accommodating. They let me check in early so that my 2-year old could have a nap, and they even provided my kids with cute little slippers to wear in the hotel. The breakfast was amazing - given the cost of most accommodations in Japan, this is one of the best values I have experienced. Highly recommend (especially for Gion Matsuri)!
