Enjoyed the location of this hotel. Close to subway/trains. Easy walking to shopping and restaurants. Hotel is a bit dated, and staff was mixed. Some very helpful, others not so much. Rooms were large and comfortable. No vending machines or ice on hotel floors.

This hotel was easy to get to once you find your way from Kyoto station to the subway lines. From the subway, exit 6 gets you practically next door to it. Otherwise the Karasuma-Shijo exit is a short walk. Look for the Starbucks right next to the entrance. The room was spacious compared to what we had experienced in Tokyo but a bit on the older side. Still, exceptionally cleaned and well maintained. The keys are old school and they request you drop them off at the front desk before you head out which was not problematic. The proximity to the subway allows for efficient travel to various sights but the hotel is also within walking distance of Nishiki Market and Gion. The staff was friendly and efficient.

I found this to be a generally good location for access to Nishiki Market and the subway system. Staff seemed eager to help although English speaking skill was shallow. Google Translate bridged the gap. There is no real storage in the room, so we lived out of our suitcases and a few hooks. The air conditioning and Wifi were both working very well.

Superb boutique hotel with excellent overall service. Kudos to the front desk staff for going above and beyond in making sure our every question was answered. The Japanese breakfast was the best we tasted during our travels throughout Japan.
