This boutique hotel was chic, modern and luxurious and in a wonderful location for our walking adventures around Kyoto. Excellent service. My only suggestion is that they add room service. Request a room on an upper floor.More

This is a superb hotel. Really good location. Staff Uber-helpful. We stayed two nights and certainly would go back there. The breakfast room was small and too busy. At times it bordered on uncomfortable. Otherwise may have got five stars.

Not really big enough for a family of 4 plus the hotel probably won't allow 4 people in the room. Hotel rooms in Japan are generally much smaller than the US and it would be hard to fit all your luggage plus extra kids... More

Yup, 2 beds together with a comfortable distance if you want space. Under U.S. standards, this would be 2 full beds together. If that helps at all. I wouldn't suggest this room type for couples who like to cuddle.
