    The room was absolutely perfect, and the staff extremely courteous and helpful. It is located in the center of the city, close to all the action.

    There is nothing I did not like. A very very small wish---to replace the free internet access via cable by free wireless internet access so that multiple computers can be connected at the same time. But really, this is nitpicking, because everything about this place was so perfect.

    Good

    The hotel is very well designed, and was very impressed upon arrival. The room is lovely, and in term of size, it is relatively large in Japan standard given that we had a corner room. We love the location, easily accessible and walking distant to many interesting food and visit.

    The housekeeping is quite lacking. On arrival, we find that there are strands of hair on the pillow, and bolster stained. On our second day after housekeeping, they didn't wash the used cups nor keep the hair dryer. The bathroom was not very tidy either. We think if they can improve their housekeeping service, we will love to return to this hotel the next time.

    Very conveniently located; easy access to all major places; leery close to the subway line that runs to Osaka

    Would be better if wi fi is provided in the room

    Well located, 10 minutes walk to Nishiki market and all central lines. Very clean, net, quiet and well equipped room. It's luxurious and everything was provided (night clothes, slippers...). Definitely recommend the place.

    The location is fantastic and the rooms are well appointed.

    Was noisy on a couple of nights with latecomers in the corridors but not really any fault of hotel

    Fabulous

    The hotel is not the easiest to find as it is new and lies in a side street. Staff at the info kiosk at Kyoto jr station gave us a hotel brochure and useful public transport hints (from the jr station the hotel is 10 minutes away by bus, plus 5 minutes walk). There is a major pedestrianised shopping and dining arcade just metres from the hotel. The hotel is new and the cleanliness of the rooms and public areas is striking. The rooms feature Japanese-styled blinds (also to cover the slightly macabre view of the cemetery from some rooms, including ours). Thanks to the location, the rooms are very quiet. The room size is adequate and the design very contemporary and chique. The beds were very comfortable. There are all usual amenities in the room and bathroom. (Slippers are re-usable and guests find a polite note to leave them in the room.) The reception staff had a slightly mechanic attitude but helped us sort out everything we needed.

    The location is excellent and within walking distance from shopping, the Yasaka Shrine and the Gion district. The room was comfortable and sufficiently large for 2 people. There are many reasonable restaurants located close by. The reception staff willingly gave directions.

    Subway directions from Kyoto subway were good. I suggest that the directions to the hotel from the subway, exit 3, give an indication of which direction to go when leaving the subway exit. I suggest a map or list of Kyoto, in English, giving public transport bus/underground numbers to/ from the hotel to historical sites would be helpful, as well as the general map that is provided.

    Clean, bit comfortable room and an amazing location, right in the heart of the city but my room was perfectly quiet at night.

    Expensive breakfast

    Excelent hotel, really well situated in the center of Kyoto, at walking distance from the Gion district and in the middle of the shopping area. The Hotel and the rooms are new, nicely designed and really confortable, with a friendly and helpful staff. Free cable internet included. The best hotel so far in Japan, taking in consideration quality for price. We really recommend it!

    I enjoyed how clean the hotel was, how respectful the staff were, and the location was close to shopping and the Gion.

    I was impressed with all aspects of the hotel.

    Good

    Helpful staff, great location, good size bathroom.

    I got a double room and still the room was too small. No place for luggage. Maybe it's time to replace the mattress? Should have signs around the hotel pointing to it since hotel is in an alley. Wanted to try the buffet breakfast but it was just too expensive. Free Wi-Fi only in lobby.

    Exceptional

    Everything - location (a lot of shops, food market, good transportation, nice atmosphere nearby), room (large, nice and warm - we were in winter), facilities (even warm washlet), stuff (they try to do everything you need). We were at 4 hotels in Japan and this one was the best to the quality and price (in January).

    Breakfast is a little bit expensive and we didn't like the atmosphere of the breakfast room, but it is just our opinion. In general breakfast is good.
