Just a stone throw away from Kyoto Station. Thoughtful and reassuring customer service from the start: a staff member showed me to my room, helped with my luggage and also demonstrated how to use the high-tech gadgets provided in the room. A comfortable stool in the elevator was a nice surprise. An uber plush bed, an air purifier in the room, very good breakfast, and comfortable Japanese-style pyjamas in 2 sizes! A well-designed hotel offering affordable luxury in Japan.
