The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. Breakfast was served at the table (not buffet style) and both the western and Japanese breakfasts were delicious. The staff was also very friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend this hotel,

10/10 Exceptional

Just a stone throw away from Kyoto Station. Thoughtful and reassuring customer service from the start: a staff member showed me to my room, helped with my luggage and also demonstrated how to use the high-tech gadgets provided in the room. A comfortable stool in the elevator was a nice surprise. An uber plush bed, an air purifier in the room, very good breakfast, and comfortable Japanese-style pyjamas in 2 sizes! A well-designed hotel offering affordable luxury in Japan.
