Great quality hotel, in the heart of Kyoto but in a nice quiet location in which to stroll back to after a night wandering around such a quaint city. Rooms were small but clean and modern, staff were courteous and very helpful, overall it was a relaxing and enjoyable stay.
Definitely thanks to the previous reviewer for the great tip on finding the hotel from the subway – Sorry I’ll relist the comments here: ‘Head to Karasuma Oike station, then leave by exit 6 and once you are on street level, head right. You will see Starbucks on your right, but don't turn down that road, keep going for another twenty or so meters and you will see the entrance to the hotel’ - remember also that the Japan rail pass is not valid on local subway’s in Japan. Suggest to check out Nara (use the Japan pass for this!), the oldest established town in Japan and head down to Inari where the long line of red temple poles leads up to a great view over greater Kyoto.
