Just in front of Imperial Palace Park and a reasonable walk from downtown this new and nice design hotel far from the mess of Gion and the district around, very quiet and nice staff, The room very spacious and and very cool furnished...teh bath so big and what a cool tub.the only little problem if we can say that, is the little spoken english but nevermind the stay it worths.

On arrival the staff could not have been more helpful. We knew we were onto a winner when we were offered a free welcome drink. We politely declined alcohol in favour of non-alcoholic cocktail which is highly recommended.
The reception area is sparklingly white and spotless. Don't be out off by the dark corridors as these are not only classy but are in stark contrast to the rooms. Each room has been designed by different designers. Ours was roomy, spotlessly clean and equipped with all madden appliances, including Bose sound system that accommodates apple iPhones/pods, large flat screen tv, espresso machine etc. The bed is huge and most comfortable. Bathroom is beautifully furnished with a roll-top bath and wet-room shower. Lavatory was in a separate room. The carpets throughout were deep pile but because they are light they did show a mark or two-cannot criticise this too much though.
To get to The Screen from the station catch one of several busses that go north up Kawaramachi-Dori and alight just before the Imperial Palace. Cost ¥220 each but you can buy an all day pass for ¥500 each (handy for going around town on the bus). Simply get on the bus at the back and buy one off the driver as you get off-put it in the machine which date stamps it then for subsequent journeys just show it to the driver as you get off.

The Screen location was perfect as everything is a short and cheap bus ride away. It is very quiet inside and provided perhaps our best nights sleep in Japan.

This place was a great find and one of the highlights of our honeymoon. Drinks on arrival were a nice touch, the layout and design of the rooms were impressive and the staff were just lovely and very helpful. The area around the hotel is a short stroll to a large shopping precinct and the back alleys are beautiful to wander through and explore on the way back. A cheap cab will take you to restaurants which are so pretty at night. Make sure you check out the rooftop bar and indulge in a traditional Japanese breakfast downstairs. This was a nice change from the crazy intensity of Tokyo - a highly recommended sophisticated hotel that would be pretty hard to fault.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed the hotel and the room! It is very well located, 5 min from bus stops and a subway station. It's in front of the Imperial Palace so we enjoyed an early jog in the gardens, wonderful! Our room was spacious, with jacuzzi and a small living room equipped with tv and sound system with ipod dock, very romantic. For a better price, book on weekdays and through expedia!

A nice trendy hotel but still with traditional touches that make you feel you are in Japan. Some of the hotel feels a little industrial which may not be to all tastes, but overall quite good.

Note that restaurant openings times are quite strict and room service availability is limited. This is the price to pay compared to staying at a big name chain, but you should be prepared for this as there are limited options for service immediately around the hotel.

Aircon is not individually controlled from rooms. Wasn't a problem for us in march but might be so if you go in summer. Also generally found that staff spoke very limited english.
