there were three of us on this holiday, with a room each. the hotel had no problem putting the rooms adjoining. the staff were always happy and helpful. great position and as this was my third stay in this hotel I'll be sure to book again for my next stay
The hotel is a good location in the center of Kyoto. It is easy to access the bus system (the return bus drops you off right in front of the hotel. However, the sites in Kyoto are around the outside perimeter of the city, so it is a 20-30 bus (or two) ride to the temples. Or, a free hotel shuttle to the train station (then JR train to some temples).
Overall the quality of the hotel is good, and there are many guest services available.
We stayed in an executive twin room for seven nights. The room was elegantly designed and the size of the room (452 sq ft) was large and comfortable. We liked the air purifier/humidifier provided, which helped to improve air quality in the room. The staff had been very polite and helpful during our entire stay. We also enjoyed greatly the elaborate buffet offered at its main dining restaurant “Feerie.” The free shuttle bus service, which ran every 20 muniutes between the hotel and the Karasuma Oike subway station, was very convenient. The Kaisai airport limousine had a stop near the Karasuma Oike subway station, making it easy to access the Kaisai Airport to and from this hotel.
While a bit dated, my group of four enjoyed this ryokan. The futons were comfortable and the room was very spacious and clean. Not many dining options next to the hotel, but plenty of choices just a 10 minute walk south. Convenient access to the Keihan railway nearby, and by bus.

We loved staying here! This boutique hotel was the best part of our trip to Japan. The staff is amazing--very helpful with directions and dining recommendations. The facility was well kept and the room was very nice and clean.
