I already knew this hotel had a great location just across the road from Nijo Castle. This is a World Heritage / Cultural site from where the Shogun ruled Japan.
What I didn't know was what a gem of a hotel it is or how delightful the staff are. Many in traditional dress and always polite they really did do everything possible to make their guests feel at home.
The room was spacious and clean. The hotel lobby / reception was welcoming and a great bar with view of mini waterfall feature / garden.
I couldn't find fault with the hotel or staff. It's also a couple of minutes walk from Nijo-jo Mae subway station and 15 minutes walk from Nijo train station.
Dozens of restaurants are also within minutes walk from the hotel.
Central Kyoto is easy to access from the hotel. Shopping and entertainment is great. Additionally the people of Kyoto are warm and welcoming - very friendly.
Would definitely stay here again or recommend to anyone.
