We recently stayed here on our first trip to Kyoto. The room was very comfortable. The bathroom was quite small but not really a problem. The staff were very helpful and after a short conversation we easily navigated the local bus system. Most things are within walking distance, or if you are not a walker, the bus stops are all close by. It's a pretty cool place with a church inside the building and original Renoir paintings in the foyer. We would certainly stay here again.
