All staff were very nice and friendly. Since it was my birthday when we were in Kyoto, the hotel staff even gave me a present. That was lovely. The breakfast in the hotel was very good. I especially like the Japanese theme breakfast. When the evening staff learned that we had an early start the next day, he called someone and the next morning we had a breakfast sandwich to go (delicious egg sandwiches). (By the way egg sandwiches is the best in Japan - even 7Eleven stores, Family Mart and Lawson.) The staff really go out of their way to help you. I am sorry I don't remember his name, but he wears glasses. I woke up early one day since I would like to go to Hokanji Temple while there were no tourists around which was a walking distance from the hotel. He suggested that I walked to Koshoji Temple since I was heading in that direction anyway and at 6 a.m. it was opened. Great suggestion. The view of the Kyoto was breathtaking from this temple. This hotel has a great location and price. Definitely I will stay her with my family again no question about it. Keep up the good work and thanks a lot for a lovelier stay in your hotel. I hope you will still keep your prices low so I can stay in your hotel again.

Fabulous stay and great location
We booked the property on the day we stayed. What an excellent find, the location was perfect in Gion. The room had bath facilities which also had toothbrushes, razors, all shampoo and conditioner which really helped us as we did an unexpected stop off. There was a hairdryer, air conditioning and kettle. The staff were friendly, polite and welcoming they advised us where to eat and it was amazing food. Kyoto is fascinating we saw a few geisha and a must is the Golden Palace. If you love clothes shopping you will love here and also Nishi Market. We had a continental breakfast which was more than enough. I can not recommend here highly enough.
