I stayed here 3 nights and was amazed at how thin the walls were. I could hear every bit of conversation from the hallway and from the adjacent rooms. That was not fun and it definitely kept me up at night.
Otherwise, all else here was great. The location was excellent, in the center of the Higashiyama area, and very central to all types of public transportation, so you can get anywhere quickly. The hotel staff was very helpful and gave me excellent information regarding public transportation options - loads of maps within the lobby as well. There are 2 massage chairs in the lobby free for use, as well as an internet station, and loads of kitchen devices (including hot water for drinks, microwave, tea bags, etc.). I made oatmeal packets here every morning for breakfast. My room had a mini-fridge in it, and they gave me a japanese robe to use as well. The hotel also had 2 sets of washer/dryers which were free to use.
The free internet in the room was pretty fast. The room was clean, but the bed was hard (less than ideal). Housekeeping only comes if you stay longer than 4 days, I believe. The neighborhood itself is great, and there are several restaurants, shops, and general stores for toiletries and basic groceries all within a 3 block radius.
I enjoyed my stay here but was admittedly frustrated with the very thin walls.
