We expected more
The reception staff was very good but we were disappointed with the room. It was dusty and smelled of cigarettes although we specifically asked for a non smoking room.

Good 6.0
Best location in Kyoto
Gion is the only district worth staying in kyoto which I found overall a boring city compared to tokyo unless you are a shrine enthusiast. The hotel is in the best location ever. An amazing japanese bakery is afross the street (but if you are an american u have starbucks downstairs). I wish the hotel was cleaner and modernized. Lot of stains on the wall and old keys system to access your room. It feels a hotel never renovated in 20 years. But i paid very little so I can’t complain too much.
