The room was of normal measure, clean and comfortable. The staff were neighborly and supportive. The hotel is an easy walk from Kyoto station and the metro station is over the road. We did not eat at the hotel but the breakfast buffett looked lovely good. The shower was pretty strong, and the mattress was firm. The train station is approximately a 15-minute walk away, so it's helpful for day trips or getting around the city. Overall a good central place to say when visiting Kyoto.
