    Outstanding Staff!”

    Nice hotel however a bit pricey (but what isn't in Japan). Very good location along main road and subway line. Short walk to Nishiki Market, and a bit further to Gion District. Can't give enough praise to their concierge as the train/subway system can be confusing to a newbie such as myself. However, their concierge made it simple as she researched best route, printed directions and explained it. Way above and beyond any expectations! OUTSTANDING!!!

    Be Advised of Extra Charges”

    The hotel should be up front that the public bath and sauna are not included in reservation. We picked this hotel because we enjoy the public bath in the evening and morning. Finding out after check in that each use of the public bath is 1700 Yen per person was a very unpleasant surprise. It’s ok to charge for use just note it up front so other travelers won’t make the same mistake we did

    Kyoto-England design with professional staff”

    Fantastic design of the hotel which is totally different with normal old-school hotels. I arrived early and kept my luggage there for few hours and they already sent all the things to my room before I come back for check in. All staff are friendly, polite and professional. Since I don’t really enjoy hot spring so I didn’t try it, but my wife LOVE the hot spring in hotel a lot and she told me the service was excellent there. Definitely will stay here again during the next trip in Kyoto.

    Incredible location, great amenities, and of course, very warm and friendly staff. We stayed here, then checked out and left for Nara and then returned for an evening before heading back to Tokyo. During that time, the friend I was traveling with left some workout clothes in the dresser, and when we came back, the staff had it folded and returned the clothes she left in the room to her!

    Hotel is great, well deco and clean, hotel staff is very helpful... walking distance to subway stations, and 15mins walk to the Nishiki food market... the drawback is there is no much to wonder around the hotel nearby at night, as it is on the main street (or maybe we didn't find out any...).

    It was a good stay. Clean but small room, bath room was great, building seems quite new, staffs are smiley and helpful. Despite the fact that it is located very near to the train station, if your itinerary requires you to take the public bus most of the time, then it may not be as convenient.

    The hotel is very conveniently located within walking distance from the main shopping street (shijo). There are also plenty of options nearby for western breakfast (starbucks, dean and deluca, MOS burger, macs), though i'm not so sure about japanese breakfast. There is also a convenience store located right opposite the hotel. While the rooms are a little small, they are well-equipped and had all that we needed. Some of their staff seemed to have difficulty communicating in English though. A very pleasant hotel with beautiful furnishings!

    Staff. Location. Value for money

    We enjoyed our stay here, mainly due to the wonderful english speaking super helpful staff at the travel desk. It is a shame I lost her name card but she is the best, helpful in giving all information, helping us booked the restaurants and changed dates. Such gestures and helps are so important in Japan where it is important to book good/ difficult to book restaurants if you cant speak the language. It's location is actually quite good with the market just 15 mins walk away. Thank you . Breakfast is really not impressive though
