This was, to my mind, a luxury hotel. We were initially a bit nervous when we booked due to some reviewers complaints about its location. It's not on the river. It's not in the wildly expensive tourist or business parts of town. For our purposes, it was great. Outstanding and thoughtful service, a real treat at the end of a long trip. A fellow reviewer recommended a coffee shop for a quick pleasant and inexpensive breakfast - it's just up the street to the right as you leave the hotel from the main lobby, at the corner, with the red awning that says "Coffee Shop" It's not affiliated with the hotel in any way, but it's good and for under 2000 yen for a family of four for breakfast, it's far more economical than 3000 yen per person for the hotel restaurant.
"This is the first Japanese Hotel I've ever stadied"
This is the first Japanese Hotel I've ever stadied. I was attending an international conference there.
Although it is a little different from most American Hotels, I think it is a great hotel!
It is located in the center of Kyotoa. You can walk to a lot of interesting places. The room service is excellent. Food is great!
I love it!
The only downside is its pricy. That's all.
For 3 of the 4 nights I stayed there, the hostle owner (who was only arround between 4/5pm - 8pm) asked me to check in guests for him because he didnt want to wait around for them to arrive.
A fair few of the guests were not exactly pleased with the owners conduct either, especially when he tried to charge people twice for the room (he asked for cash after people had pre-paid on expedia).
