8/10 Very good

This hotel has lots of wonderful amenities. The footbath on the rooftop, 1 free drink coupon at the rooftop bar for each evening, complimentary fountain soft drinks, hot beverages (the hot cocoa is great!) and popsicles in the reception area, complimentary bottles of water each day in the room along with traditional japanese wear and sandals that you can use (not take). We had the superior double room. It was a decent size, still a bit cramped but that's the usual. It was comfortable, extremely clean and had a "shower toilet." The only minus was that there wasnt much of a view from the room but thia was the case in the other 2 hotels we stayed in as well. Maybe because it's booked through a discount site (?). The staff were helpful and friendly. Some had limited English speaking skills but we still managed. We did have to pay extra taxes (bath and city) upon check in ( 2700 yen total for 5 nights). They held our suitcases for us since we arrived an hr prior to check in time;Then, made sure the suitcases were already in our room when we actually checked in. We did not purchase breakfast since there were restaurants around that were cheaper. Location is great. We were able to use the train and also uber for shorter distances.

Comfortable and modern
Hotel was a excellent and beautiful hotel very modern but warm and comfortable. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. A 10 and 5 star star experience. The only thing my wife and I didn’t really appreciate and the hotel could improve is the public spa/bath in how they need to inform and have signs of etiquette of do’s and font’s in public bath/spa for the guests.( showering before entering, no swimsuits, no beverages in spa/bath). As Frequent visitors to Japan we had to learn this to respect the locals and Japanese culture. Other than that we loved our stay at the hotel. The location was convenient also! And the roof top bar!

Above and beyond expectations
Amazing stay. Now one of my favorite hotels in Kyoto. Staff was attentive and friendly, amenities were amazing from the open air onsen to the rooftop terrace, rooms were comfortable, clean and spacious. And it was easy to access transportation or walk to major areas. Just wow. Will definitely be making it a point to stay again if I'm able.

Fantastic onsen-hotel in Kyoto. Great rooms, amenities and facilities. Pricey but totally worth the money. Only negative is the poor English of the staff (at least those we interacted with).
