We just spent two weeks in a Western style self catering in Mimaru Kyoto. The beds are clean and comfortable and they change linen every 3 days. The living room has a large tv, two large sofas, and a centre table that can be used for meals. There is heating and air conditioning. The kitchenette has two hobs, dishes, cutlery, washing liquid, a fridge/freezer, a kettle and a microwave. The bathroom has a seperate heated toilet (very comfortable!), bath and shower with toiletries. There is also a washer/dryer machine. There is plenty of storage area and a large closet. The room is very quiet. They provide new towels, toilet paper and tissues every day as needed. You can rent a toaster and vacuum cleaner, and borrow an apple tv. The hotel is 5 minutes away from a very complete supermarket. The staff are extremely polite and helpful; we want to record here our deep appreciation and thankfulness. The location is excellent - walking distance to many places including downtown, and easy access to bus, metro and tram. Overall we are extremely happy with our experience here.
