We booked our stay at the Aranvert the night before we arrived in Kyoto, so it was very much an impulse decision to stay here. We chose it because it seemed central to a lot of the sights we wanted to see and that's basically it. For what it was, I would not really call it value for money, but at the same time it is a nice hotel and you are definitely not getting ripped off.
We only stayed one night and had one day to explore Kyoto. Not all of the reception staff were that friendly when checking in, but when we checked out the next morning one lady was extremely helpful and let us store our luggage with them for the entire day and helped us to rent bicycles so we could make the most of the one day we had in Kyoto. The bicycles were delivered to the hotel within half an hour for us, and at the end of the day we dropped them back at the hotel when we picked up our luggage. Very handy.
The rooms are a bit 90s but perfectly clean, reasonable sized bathroom and I don't think the rooms are as small and some reviewers on here have stated. I think there is probably some better value accommodation out there in Kyoto but as a last minute decision I definitely do not regret my decision to stay here and it was an all round pleasant experience. Also, breakfast buffet was great... not just Japanese food as another reviewer mentioned.
