Great stay! Still dreaming of that bed!
Wonderful place. Service was very friendly and efficient. Hotel was very clean and well designed. Room was very comfortable and clean. I've visited Kyoto a handful of times over the years, and this was definitely my favorite room for the price. The bed was on the hard side, but surprisingly comfortable. I really miss that bed now. Bathroom was very clean and comfortable as well. The included breakfast is slightly on the light side, being mostly vegetables. However, it was super tastey (and very healthy). The jams that they have to go with their bread is amazing. Location is pretty good. Just a 5-10 minute walk from the nearest subway station. Not difficult to get to from Kyoto Station. Very quiet neighborhood. A convenience store is directly across the street.
