Location, location, location!
Fabulous hotel!! Location is absolutely perfect and the staff was so friendly and helpful. After arriving we asked the receptionist for a recommendation for dinner and she was able to secure us a reservation at the top restaurant in Kyoto. The room was spotless and the welcome drink when we arrived was such a nice touch. We booked a standard room and were shocked to see a jetted tub with a tv in the tub! There are no English speaking channels on the TV but the internet was lightening fast so we were able to simple stream any tv we needed. I have stayed at many hotels in Japan and this one was by far the best. The location is worth the price alone- it is in the heart of the Gion district and the size of the room was MUCH larger than expected. We have already made reservations for a return trip- it was that perfect.

One of the best hotels I know
One of the best hotels I know and I am constantly traveling in Asia, the USA and Europe. Alza is good value for money, its super elegant yet also amazingly cozy and of course (Japan...) clean and perfect in every sense. The location is also fantastic with Gion in walking distance. The staff very helpful and efficient. Highly recommendable.
