I recently visited Japan and I stayed here 6 nights. This hotel has a unique look---very Victorian--style. After a long day of exploring the city, it was a treat to return and relax in this hotel. The room was a good size, bigger bathroom than other hotels I stayed in during my trip to Japan. A full-size Western bathtub was handy and appreciated.
As a solo traveller, I appreciated the safety features--you must use your key to have access to your floor, etc.
There was a Western style buffet breakfast and a Japanese breakfast. The Western breakfast buffet room was very crowded and I opted for the Japanese breakfast.
I would highly recommend visiting The Museum of Kyoto. It is less than a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Great exhibits and shops.
