It's about 15mins stroll to Kyoto station. Hotel provides shuttle bus service to Kyoto station but with limited seating capacity for each trip. The room size is consider decent compared to the other I had stayed previously.

Most disappointed
Completely NOT worth the price we have paid for. The most negative experience with hotel stay in Japan where we visit three to four times a year. Extremely disappointed. Will never stay there again.

Visiting Kyoto during Cherry Blossom Season
Better than expected, close to Kyoto Station with a shuttle that ran every 15 minutes during the day. However it was a short walk. Rooms were decent sized for Japanese hotels, small for Western hotel standards.

Solid option in Kyoto
The hotel is old, but must have been renovated as the lobby looks extremely new. The amenities, particularly the in room amenities were great, and were well replenished (maybe over replenished) on a daily basis. Location is great, as it is within walking distance to Kyoto station, or you can opt to use their shuttle service as well. Unfortunately, as the hotel infrastructure is old, the soundproofing between rooms is poor, and you can easily hear the guests staying in the room next door. Some of the rooms are facing the railway tracks, and whilst the glass windows have been double enforced, it might still bother certain guests. The team there was professional, fluency in English was great, particularly the concierge desk. This is a hotel to consider when visiting Kyoto, but do note some of the "deficiencies".
