We loved our stay at this slightly unusual, less frenetic and more personal hotel, with very good service, especially from the front desk. The hotel is a short walk (10 minutes) from Kyoto station. Our room was well appointed, whilst Japanese in overall style, it had western beds. Whilst facing the road noise was not a problem, partly as there was no need to open windows as the weather was cold during our stay. The unusual bathroom feature was a wooden bathtub as pictured, took rather a long time to fill and we did not feel it had any particular advantage over a conventional bath. The Italian restaurant was of a good standard and reasonably priced (for Japan). Although we chose the Western breakfast, it came with a large bowl of steamed vegetables and there was no buffet, so not so good. Apart from breakfast a very pleasant stay.
