5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We loved the friendly and helpful staff. They kept our luggage before checking in. They also guided us on where to eat given that a lot of restaurants were closed due to the holiday break.

Lovely Stay!

The room was very lovely. Overall this was a lovely hotel with professional and welcoming staff and a beautiful bento breakfast each morning. The only improvement I can recommend is to allow for more clothing storage. I believe that this is because it's more of a business travel property, but we were a couple on business and pleasure and the 4 hooks in the room were not enough for our week's worth of clothing. That said, we managed just fine. Also, I would recommend a room on the back side of the building, away from the main street. While it's a small street, it's quite busy. The street noise wasn't bad, but noticeable since the interior of our room was so serene.

Hotel was nice and the front desk team was very guest focus. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Good location with a lot of restaurant options. There was a great Koba restaurant right down the street.

Great location. 5mins walk to Kamo River and other parts of Gion. Room is too small for 2 luggages.
