Great hotel to stay.
It might take 5 to 10 mins to walk from station to this hotel but the room space is big, with japanese zen style, totally worthy it. My top 1 stay (among) 3 in my trip to Osaka & Kyoto. Love it!

A little walk, but perfect
A very small hotel, but with spacious comfortable rooms about a 10 min walk from the Kyoto Station. Seems like an older apartment that was totally revamped and turned into a hotel. Whoever did the remodel didn't cut corners. Plenty of space, can easily sleep 3 people with enough space for luggage. Great furnishing and left with nothing to complain about. * Mattress is airweave which is known to be a quality mattress in Japan. * It's not your typical "hotel." There's about 5-6 rooms and it feels like you're a guest at someone's house. * Front is totally bilingual. We exchanged Japanese and English. * There is a cafe called Walden Woods Cafe a block or two away PLEASE GO! * Breakfast was unique and reminded me of Bed n Breakfast. * You get a smartphone you can take with you. The phone is NOT hotspotable. * Solid wifi, big tub, separate bathroom, plenty of closet space, etc. * Maybe one good / bad point is that it's not in a busy area, so you won't have convenience store downstairs, BUT it's nice and quiet.

Exceptional, modern and convenient location
The Hotel Ethnography Kikoku no Mori was wonderful. So much better than we had expected. It was located within walking distance of the Kyoto train station and several bus routes which made getting around town very easy. The staff was terrific and very helpful in suggesting places to visit. The room was very comfortable and modern. Many extras like toothbrush, hair brush, hair tie and razor were included on the bathroom vanity. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.
