Monterey is very conveniently located in central Kyoto, and is also located right by the transfer junction of the subway. You don't need to transfer to go on to a different line.
Upon entry into the hotel you definitely get a sense that it's fairly high-end. The staff has excellent English and are very helpful when it comes to asking for directions and answering everyday inquiries. The rooms are immaculate and the cleaning staff does a great job changing the sheets and keeping the room organized. The rooms are okay sized but if you have large pieces of luggage you might have trouble finding a convenient place to put it.
One of the services that the hotel provides, and that we took advantage of, is the luggage transfer service. We were heading to Nara on our last day and from there we wanted to go straight to Tokyo. Not wanting to have to lug our huge suitcases with us, the hotel actually transferred our bags to our Tokyo hotel (we weren't staying at a Monterey in Tokyo, so they ship anywhere). It costs around $13 a bag. They call your next hotel to confirm your reservation and to alert them. You just need to provide them with your bags at least 24 hours before your arrival at your next hotel. It was incredibly convenient, just ask for it at the front desk.
Overall, highly recommend this hotel!
