Comfortable, value-for-money, AMAZING location
Location location location
The hotel is very new, so the rooms were modern and well-furnished. Beds were comfortable and for the price we paid, it was definitely value for money. The best aspect of the hotel would be its location. It is so centrally located that most of the restaurants I had intended to visit are all within walking distance away. The shopping district is also walking distance away. And so is a 24-hour fast food outlet if you're looking for supper. I sincerely believe that this is the best hotel to stay in in Kyoto due to its location and most importantly the value-for-money as you will not be paying exorbitant amount for the comfort you get.

Love this hotel! Central, clean, effiicient
Location and cleanliness
Fantastic stay. We moved to a ryokan after staying here for a few nights and wished we hadn't. Room is clean, smells nice and spacious enough for a Japanese hotel. Location is very good. Near the shopping area, and with many food to choose from. within walking distance to subway and bus lines. Highly recommend.

fabulous clean hotel with very helpful staff
cleanliness, comfort, centrally located
The room was great value with a great location. Ask for a bus map and a bus daily ticket while there. The staff will help make your stay more pleasant and efficient.

Stunning contemporary Japanese hotel
Fantastic position, very friendly staff, contemporary good design
Fantastic! Excellent position for the things I wanted to do in Kyoto within walking distance, Gion and the Nishiki market. Very easy to get to the train stations, very friendly, welcoming and accommodating staff. Yes the room is small as you would expect but very comfortable beds/pillows, bathroom, and the attention to detail. I really enjoyed my stay here and can thoroughly recommend this hotel for a great contemporary introduction to Kyoto.

Friendly staff and good hotel
Friendly staff, Good location, quite expensive
The hotel's location is very good so you are next to the shopping, dining area of the Kyoto. The convenient store and the breakfast shop is very near as well as the train and bus stop. The nice staffs will take care of you well and very polite. Anyway, everything come with the price, so it is not the bang for buck for sure.

Will be back!
Superb location, Comfortable room and Free fast wifi
I was upgraded to the rooms on Premium Floor, Amazing! :) The location is unbeatable, just on the centre of Kyoto, very close to shopping street Karawamachi-dori, Shijo-dori and Sanjo-dori. There were many good restaurants and shops around the hotel. Will stay there again if ever back in Kyoto.

Sophisticated and delicate.
Design, location and Friendly staffs
It was amazing. We love the hotel. There's a drugstore right in front of it. And a supermarket beside. The room was great, and the staffs was awesome. They looked into my booking details and provided a small bouquet of flowers (wedding). I love it.
