“perfect home away from home... loved it!”
This was a wonderful place to stay in Kyoto. Starting with the exterior of the building, everything is beautiful and stylish. When you enter the staff is very friendly and attentive, and you are immediately relieved of your bags and seated for a welcome drink. The room we had was small but well set up with many lovely treats. Espresso maker, Japanese sweets and tea, PJ's and robe, stereo with ipod dock, and a huge flat screen tv. Pure comfort. The staff went above and beyod their duty to help us with daily sightseeing and future travel plans. The food at the Hotel Restaurant was REALLY good, fairly priced, and they had a really great wine list. All in all it was one the our favorite places we have stayed in the world. The staff at the Screen made it an above expected fabulous experience!
“Cool boutique hotel in Kyoto”
We stayed at The Screen for two nights recently in suite 102. The staff were great, arranging bike hire and finding a 3- to 2-pin plug converter when we needed it. The hotel is stylish and generally well looked after - I rated the room cleanliness a 4 because the bathroom smelled a little weird when we checked in. I gave the room a 3 for comfort because although in keeping with other reviewers it was the biggest bed I've ever slept in (and very comfortable), and the room was very big and beautifully decorated, there was no sofa in the room and only a single chair (made for a weird breakfast experience with me sitting on the luggage stand....!). So no lounging and reading, really. Overall we would definitely go back (and maybe try a room with some seating options) - however, if we had the children with us, probably this would not be our first choice as they would spend their time fiddling with the Nespresso machine, iPod dock, Bose sound system and all the other cool stuff.
THE HOTEL IS LOCATED IN A NICE AREA RIGTH IN FRONT OF A SMALL TEMPLE NOT FAR FROM THE BIG AVENUE BUT IN A QUIET PLACE AT THE SAME TIME.THE ROOM WAS BIG,CLEAN AND BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED THERE WAS ONLY ONE THING MISSING...A WINDOW WITH A VIEW, SO IF YOU SUFFER FROM CLAUSTROPHOBIA DON`T GO THERE YOU`D FEEL AS IF YOU WERE INSIDE A BOX.
“Love it- Cool room. Great service. Very pleasant stay overall.”
Room- Chic deco and very comfy/ huge bed, with standard facilities of boutique hotel. (ipod hub, free Internet, cool little details) Service- Impeccable. I asked the front desk to call a cab and take me to a Fugu restaurant which I'm not sure of the address. Front desk helped to locate the restaurant, made reservation (which I totally didn't think of) , and asked the restaurant to prepare English menu for me. So attentive! Hotel Maintenance- Some stains on the carpet, and the shower curtain has mold on it. That bothers me. Location- 10-15 mins walk from subway station (takes longer with luggage); it's quiet and serene with the Imperial Palace as neighbor, but not what I'd call convenient. Despite the downsides, I'll totally recommend this hotel. Fun to stay!!
“Best Trendy Boutique Hotel in Kyoto”
If you're looking to stay at a trendy hotel, this is the place! All white decor in the the lobby and cafe, clever and spaciously designed rooms, and the outside champagne bar is very chic. I'd recommend this more for couples than families for sure. The service was really nice and helpful for food recommendations and they all spoke English. We walked to the subway and to bus routes to go sight seeing and for nightlife, so it worked out really well. The only negative if I'd have to come up with one is that we barely saw other people, in case you are after a bustling hotel.
