Initially only booked 2 nights at this hotel. After we tried other ryokan hotel in Kyoto and decided to stay longer in Kyoto, we stayed here for another 3 nights. Total spent 5 nights at this hotel. One of the best hotels for my 2 weeks trip in Japan.
the hotel is located at about 10mins walk from Kyoto Station, subway is just 1min walk away. there is a 7-11 just outside the hotel. there is ramen shop, MCD nearby. There is a very nice handmade Soba shop next to the MCD. Must try the soba shop.
The front desk staffs are helpful and speak very good English. The room is very spacious, the amenities are good too. the tatami & futon is very comfortable. The yukata provided is very comfortable n beautiful. There are 2 pc at the lobby for hotel guess. very useful if you don't have laptop with you. The hotel provides free bicycle rental. highly recommend to use this service, bicycle is a very good transportation to do sightseeing.
