Close to main shopping streets and many shopping malls. Ten mins walk to a subway srstion.
Room is quite large and clean but walls and ceiling do not have sufficent insulation. We could hear people walking and noise from the upper room.Air condition seems weak, was ok for us but not sure if it can cope with hot days.
The hotel staff greeted us immediately and offered to bring up the bags, which is to be expected at such a nice hotel. However, they also upgraded us to the Executive suite and were overly accommodating with their concierge service, setting up the next leg of my trip perfectly. The location is outstanding and will allow easy access to the best Kyoto has to offer, plus it is attached to the train station so you never have to be outside prior to arrival.
Good hotel, room size bigger than expected. Definitely buy the day pass for bus at front desk... can go to almost all tourist attraction in kyoto with bus. Has free coffee and matcha milk machine at second floor, also free ice cubes from ice machines. Very close to fresco mart to.
I only stayed one night however it was definitely the best hotel I stayed at during my short trip to Japan!
The location is perfect for those who wish to shop at Teramachi(shopping streets) located opposite the hotel; Food(Nishiki market during the day and Potoncho for evening restaurants) - 5/10 walk to Gion also.
The hotel itself is pretty much brand spanking new. The free amenities in the rooms are offers is amazing! Moreover they offer free food to guests; any hotel offering free food is a winner for me (rice and tea are offered as a little night snack in the hotel restaurant). Beds are Extremely comfy and best of all.. The shower!!! power shower with sprinkle shower with normal shower head with normal tap. Amazing hotel for a decent price. Highly recommend.
