Perfect experience. Will come back for sure. The staff is amazing at all hours, the baths are clean and perfect after a long day of traveling, and a gorgeous palace greets you as soon as you exit.

Very Good 8.0
Very nice boutique hotel, with friendly, helpful staff. The on-site restaurant was very welcome, particularly on our first night after arriving from Tokyo. Room was pretty small [not much room for suitcases] but comfortable and very good bathroom facilities. Good location for shopping, cafes and restaurants and only a 5 minute taxi ride to Kyoto Station. The beautiful Higashi Honganji temple opposite the hotel was an added bonus.

Great little hotel and a very good location just north of the railway station. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast a good combination of Japanese and European taste. Good Public bath. Most rooms are away from the street so very quite.
