Beautiful place in the best location!Posted Dec 10, 2017
My husband and I were in Kyoto for business. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. The staff were gracious and helpful. Great location within walking distance to many quaint one-of-a-kind shops and great restaurants.

Beautiful Form Ignores FunctionPosted Sep 26, 2017
Our room was immense, but had some space wasting anomalies. The drain for the shower was actually outside the shower and beside the sink area, necessitating a raised group of tiles that were unkind to toes. We were in that black room - black walls, carpeting and furniture, but light placement made a nocturnal trip to the bathroom dangerous - especially since the bedroom was raised by two steps covered in black wall to wall carpeting.

Lovely Boutique HotelPosted Aug 8, 2017
Location: Within walking distance from the Kyoto Imperial Palace, and plenty of public transport options nearby. Lots of restaurants in the area too.
Great hotel; the rooms are lovely, each one is unique, designed by a different artist. The bathrooms are equipped with a jacuzzi large enough for two, and there are high-quality amenities provided too. The staff is great; they speak English and are helpful, polite and professional. The breakfast is delicious too. We had the 2,000 Yen Western style breakfast, and it was excellent value and beautifully presented. They also have a rooftop bar, great for a drink at sunset. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

Chic, modern and very well locatedPosted Aug 2, 2017
This beautifully designed, modern hotel had all the comfort amenities a boutique hotel should offer including a beautiful bathtub to soak you aching feet after a day of sightseeing. The curtained walls in the room were really cool, we hadn't seen anything like before, but thought they mimicked the traditional Japanese screened walls - only a twist. The location was very handy for a jog in the Imperial Palace park. You could easily walk from the hotel to the local food market and shopping area in Central Tokyo. Just take the city buses anywhere you want to go to visit shrines, temples and all that Kyoto has to offer and you are set.

nice place to stayPosted Jun 27, 2017 on Orbitz
Stayed there five nights in June 2017. The hotel staff are really wonderful and helpful, it is a small hotel with only 13 rooms, so very quiet. Apparently because it is so small you have to tell them ahead of time if you want breakfast, as I guess they don't always have the need to serve it. The roof terrace is similar, with very few people there typically, but a great spot to have a drink. I stayed in Room 403, which has interior curtains around the walls that give it an ephemeral kind of elegant look. But there are only a few windows, and those are white translucent, so no view out. It feels a bit claustrophobic. I am sure some of the other rooms are better, this was the less expensive "semi-suite." Considering reviews i had seen about the "black room", i would suggest asking the hotel ahead of time which specific room you are reserving, as they are all different and it might help with expectations.

Nice Boutique Hotel, Incredible ServicePosted Jun 5, 2017
We had a lovely stay at the Screen Hotel. The room was spacious, well-appointed, and comfortable. The hotel is centrally located, so access to places of interest was easy. But the service was the best part - just exceptional, even by Japanese standards. Highly recommended.

Modern & comfyPosted Jan 20, 2017 on Wotif
Pros: Great amenities and space
Cons: Nothing that could be improved for us
Location: Not right in the middle of town, in a quieter area near imperial gardens. Great st with eateries and boutique shops. way from the hustle and bustle.
A boutique hotel, very spacious rooms, very warm, we were there in middle of winter, close enough to main attractions. We used two bikes provided by the hotel, great way to get around. Staff were so helpful, booking restaurants, taxis and gave great directions. When we got there we were welcomed with a cup of tea! Beautiful after a cold journey. We had a room with a view at the front of the hotel. Got to see the snow falling in the morning. In house amenities were great, nice bath tub, a great little coffee machine. Big Bed. Would recommend for a bit of luxury.

Unique and modernPosted Oct 13, 2016
Location: Hire a bike for 1500 yen and 5 min ride to imperial palace. Great morning activity. We spent a lot of time shopping and eating in our street.
Great location, comfortable rooms. Fantastic breakfast, paid for separately but well worth it.
