8/10 Very good

The only concern and issue was that the windows in our rooms did not open. Felt unsafe if fire or other issues should occur and there was no air circulation.

Our Kyoto Stay
We loved Kyoto. It is a great city and a great base of operations to see nearby towns and sights. We stayed here four nights. There was a metro nearby, and it was only one stop to Kyoto Station (containing an ultra modern entertainment complex, retail stores and restaurants) and Kyoto Tower with its fantastic views of the city. Between this hotel and Kyoto Station is a Buddhist temple campus with gorgeous traditional buildings. We visited Nara, the Fushimi Inari Shrine with hundreds of Torii gates, the Bamboo Grove and the wonderful nearby river park, and the cities of Kobe and Osaka. Kobe asno Osaka are just a short ride from Kyoto on the bullet train. This whole area exceeded our expectations. The suite was really big with two queen beds on one side and a twin bed and desk area on the other side. A partial wall divides the suite. In the wall is a large TV with a mirror behind it that flips around to either side of the suite, but it looks like it’s embedded in the wall. The decor was Japanese-style with tatami floor mats and wooden slats in the walls. The beds were low but not all the way in the ground. The beds were very comfortable. The hotel has two washer/dryer machines (each machine washes and dries) on the second floor. This hotel was perfect for our family of four. The hotel restaurant/bakery was closed for renovations when we were there, but there were plenty of nearby food options. I highly recommend the Watermark Hotel and visiting Kyoto.
