8/10 Very good

Located in a very quiet neighborhood near convenient stores and restaurants. Very clean hotel and friendly staff. A block away is a river, it is peaceful and serene. Keep in mind that housekeeping comes every 4 days and the lobby hours are very limited, staff isn't there 24hrs. Check in is at 4pm. Also read the washer and dryer directions very carefully because it washed my clothes again and I had to pay to dry it again. Overall, I highly recommend for a stay in Kyoto.

10/10 Exceptional

Hotel is away from the crowd but in a super conveniet location. Close to Higashiyama Sanjo subway station and walking distance to major attractions. Enjoyed browsing around the neighborhoold to feel the life of the locals. Wonderful options for meals, from authentic french pastry for breakfast to fusion with local fresh ingredients for dinner. The premises is very well maintain and equipped. Enjoyed staying in the room with two twin beds as well as tatatmi area - the fusion of modern and tradition.
