    • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    The staff were amazingly polite. The room was spotlessly clean. There is unlimited tea, coffee, orange juice and water in the reception seating area with snacks available for free after breakfast time. There is also a microwave for guests to use in the reception area as they do not provide evening meals. We experienced the best night’s sleep on the futons of this hotel, the room was incredibly comfortable. If you opt for the “eco” option by not getting your room cleaned you get a token for a free drink (soft or alcoholic) to be used in the bar area. The hotel is conveniently located near Sanjo train station and the underground line. You can’t use a JR pass but it only costs about ¥210. It’s around a 20-30 min walk south to Gion, or around 30min walk East to the imperial palace gardens. Honestly, we can’t recommend this hotel highly enough. We wish we’d booked to stay longer.

    Literally the perfect stay in Kyoto. Ryokan-style, except for the in-room meals. Japanese breakfast was one of the best the best I had during my month in Japan, and the front desk was always extremely responsive and kind. They helped us pick out good places to eat, and also were extremely flexible with our schedule. They also had a tea ceremony, which was very affordable and an experience that you normally have to either pay a lot for or stay at a very nice ryokan for. Room was very clean and housekeeping did an amazing job every day. Bathroom and amenities provided were outstanding. The Japanese style pajamas are really comfortable and a nice touch.
