Trouble with check in at first but it was soon sorted. It was a shame you couldn’t have a drink in the restaurant at the top of the hotel. And to only have one ticket to use the pool was disappointing.

overall nice, but the Internet was the worst

Pros: - very nice staff - big and comfortable bed - spacious room and bathroom - very clean
Cons: - the Internet was the worst. kept disconnecting and was very slow
Location: we got to the Kyoto main station within a 10 minute walk and there is a giant mall and the Kyoto aquarium nearby.
the staff was very polite and the rooms were spacious and bright. the "blinds" for the windows are so pretty, they have a traditional Japanese style. also, there were "kimonos" (probably morning robes :D) for each person that were cleaned every day. breakfast was delicious and had a lot of variety of dishes. there was also matcha and strawberry latte! we'd definitely stay there again! (if they fix the Internet, cause it was terrible and kept disconnecting. if it worked, it was very slow)

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. While we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the size of the room and bed, as well as easy access to and from Kyoto Station via our complimentary shuttle bus, we deeply apologize for the poor Wi-Fi connection. Please know that we are doing our best to fix this issue, so we hope to welcome you back in the near future with faster, stronger internet service. Sincerely, Manager

The hotel was very nice and personnel very helpful. It’s not far from the main station but if you have heavy luggage you can take a taxi and it will only cost you 500 yens. The hotel is well managed and the checkin and checkout were very fast. There’s a lot of little shops and bars/restaurants to visit and the breakfast buffet is very well put together and delicious.
