We reserved a room six months in advance and there were only a couple of room types available. We ended up with a pricey, but very nice, room with two double beds put next to each other and a couch and table with two chairs. It was spacious and on the 10th floor, so it had good views. The bathroom has a separate bath and shower compartment and toilet. The hotel is next to Kyoto station, so it was next to the train tracks and you could hear trains going by, but they were not loud. Our room was suitable for four guests since it had two double beds, and it came with breakfast - but only for two guests. Since there were three of us, we bought the breakfast for our additional person. Other rooms we had seen did not come with breakfast - it was an optional extra. The breakfast was very good. It was a buffet, and had Japanese and western-style foods, including noodles, scrambled eggs, an omelet, croissants and Danish rolls, dim sum, yogurt, cereal, Taiwan-style French toast, cheesecake, sausage, bacon that was very meaty and not cooked crisp, juices, milk, coffee, tea, grapes and bananas, hard-boiled eggs, two dozen flavors of ice cream and sherbet, and other things.
