Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Very clean property with an attentive staff. Location was great with easy access via walking or bus to many of Kyoto's great attractions. Only issue came with an addition cleaning fee and tax that was assessed. Manager was open to negotiation on this issue, as we were only warned about the tax on Travelocity.
