Great hotel!
Love that the hotel is so close to Kyoto station, provides everything needed for a comfortable stay and the bonus of the sento/onsen bath is great. Do note the extended check-out timing DOES comes with EXTRA FEES which is not stated. But overall this is great and will be coming back to stay again.

Top tier customer service! The staff are super helpful and friendly. The facility has an amazing spa that is perfect to end your long adventurous day with. The buffet breakfast got many delicious and healthy choices to choose from that you would not want to miss! Overall, I wish this location existed in our home town so I could have an excuse to book a getaway from home. Definitely will be visiting again when we come back to Kyoto!

The front desk help were very friendly and helpful, and the hotel's location was perfect, right behind Kyoto Station, and next door to a 7-11. Having do-it-yourself laundry was a nice touch, too..
