not worth the price

the male staffer working the night shift, wifi
the only good thing about this place was the male staffer on over the night. He was helpful in suggesting places to visit and could speak and understand English. apart from that my husband and i were extremely disappointed. We were an hour early to check in so had to wait around the foyer area. We thought we would use this time to start looking at activities to do whilst in Gion. The ladies at the counter could not help with anything as they didn't speak English. We had to figure out how to use the public phone in reception (i.e how much a phone call costs) and after numerous call drop outs and call backs we managed to book in a dinner and a tea ceremony for that afternoon. Upon entering our room we were hanging for a green tea. something you get in all the hotels in Tokyo. However they did not have any. Only instant coffee. This place is extremely overpriced for what it is. We didn't enjoy the traditional Royokan experience as it didn't feel authentic at all. Would not recommend this place.
