Well Situated in Kyoto

Posted Mar 28, 2017
Pros: The location is great. It was very clean with a wonderful staff. The Kitchen staff and food were excellent.
Cons: The massage I received was only a 5 out of 10. For the price, I would expect a 9 or 10.
Location: The train station is a short walk as well as the Buddhist Temple across the street. The street is one of the main city arteries.
Kyoto's many intriguing sites were easily accessible from this hotel. A huge temple is right across the street. It was simple to catch a taxi. Ending the day relaxing in our private tub was soothing.

Highly recommended hotel in a beautiful city

Posted Mar 28, 2017
Location: Easy access to main sites via subway which is only a short walk from hotel and only 10 minutes from train station.
The room design was amazing and the wooden tub gave a sense of luxury and tradition. The staff were exceptionally helpful and provided recommendations for restaurants we would not have found ourselves including a local izakaya and sake bar which were fantastic. Each night the hotel staff would arrange a taxi and then walk us to the taxi and make sure the driver understood where we were going - these touches made our stay in this beautiful city very memorable. Thank you.

Japanese modern

Posted Mar 26, 2017
Pros: Very comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, clean. Good aesthetic.
Cons: Staff could be more versed in english
Location: Close to train station and large temple complex. 10 min cab ride to market, 15 min to Gion.
Great hotel close to train station and temple complex. Lovely wooden bath tubs and modern interpretation of traditional Japanese rooms. Really good Japanese or Western breakfast was included. Not close enough to walk to major sights.

The hotel is very conveniently located, close to a subway station and to Dotombori. Our room was very clean and the night view of Osaka from the room was great.
