2nd Birthday Trip to Kyoto at this hotel!!!

Very good 8.0
If you want small room, it is good.
If you are alone or small person, it would be good for you in this room. I am short and i was a little bit scared however, since i tried to be good for owner and workers, they were welcoming and didn't much care about any issues. If you do that, there is no need to worry about many stuffs. And i was able to meet up foreigners as well, No problem.
