I was very satisfied with my stay here, and it beat my expectations. The location is half a block from the subway and one stop from Kyoto station making it perfect for a home base to travel around nearby cities. On the other hand it's somewhat far from the nightlife and restaurants of Gion and Sanjo, about a 15 minute walk. I highly recommend renting bikes from J-Cycle a 5 Minute walk as the city is built for cyclists.
The front desk at the hotel was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The public bath on the 4th floor was a pleasant bonus to relax after a long day but I recommend visiting one of the nearby "Sento's" for the complete experience. Cleaning service was excellent.
The room itself was quaint but very clean and comfortably fit 2 of us. As in all of Japan the washroom was excellent with great shower pressure and a fully featured toilet. The AC was the best AC I've ever experienced in a hotel, it was super quiet and incredibly effective. The beds were also firm but quite comfortable.
For the price I recommend this hotel if you are looking to stay close to Kyoro station for excursions.
