    Every single employee was kind and greeted us when we walked by. They were all EXTREMELY helpful. The breakfast was large and delicious we had both the traditional Japanese and american breakfast. Check in and checkout process was a breeze. We were very sad to leave this hotel and wish we had stayed in kyoto longer than two nights. I would recommend this hotel and stay here if I return to kyoto. The location was perfect, very close to some great sight seeing opportunities and we were able to walk to the train/subway stations quite easily. The bath/spa was closed while we were there due to the corona virus; this did not bother us so much as the rooms were spacious and comfy. We had no issues communicating with staff in English.

    Walkable and nice hotel

    The hotel is with a great proximity to everything. It was easy to commute from Kyoto Station to the hotel with the free shuttle service. The rooms are bit small especially at the entrance and can get crowdy if you have big luggage bags. The amenities and hot water bath are great complement to the stay. However, the breakfast is mainly Japanese.
