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.

Very friendly staff, clean, quiet area but easy to access to go to the main area( Shijo-Kawaramachi where we went to the shopping area) We use the city bus only a few minutes walk from the hotel. Room was very comfortable and clean. I will definitely to come back to Kyoto and stay there again.

The best stay I had in Japan
A boutique hotel aesthetically designed. Particularly professional and courteous staff. Tanaka and Ninna were always willing and ready to help and particularly professional (though, not the Italian receptionist who had this totally detached attitude, sparing even a 'good morning'). Breakfast was fine. Location very convenient. Room was spacious and amenities galore. I wish I had a sixth star to award this property.
