Good3.0 / 5
Fun in a Robert Palmer sort of way.
If you love 1985, you'll absolutely love this hotel. With all the amenities one would expect while watching a Live Aid concert, this place is Gordon Gekko's dream. Honestly, the rooms are huge and clean, but the place is seriously a throwback to 80's style. It's also far enough away from any subway stop to require a ride - and a bus that only goes once an hour starting at 9:30 in the morning. It's very quiet - a little too quiet - definitely felt like a Frankie Goes to Hollywood meets the Shining vibe. Looking for quiet, camp, and creepy. This is your stop. Looking for quick access to Kyoto, free wifi in your room, or reasonable prices. Try somewhere else. (Huge rooms. Nothing else.)

Nice hotel but far from tourist action.
Stayed 2 nights.Far from Kyoto center. Has limited shuttle service to neighborhood train station (about 2 km.). If you are just interested in spa facilities a very good place to stay otherwise for tourist interests stay closer to Kyoto for the same price.

Pleasurable and relaxing stay
This is a great place to hold a wedding as the views are fantastic and food is tasty. They accommodate dog sitting at the hotel. It is a little out of Kyoto but they have a shuttle bus service which operates every hour. Could not fault this hotel.

We're not coming back
The hotel is more a wedding chapel that takes hotel guests. The staff is not very helpful, for instance: you can borrow a wifi router to use with the wired network, but asking for wifi is not enough; you must use the exact word "Wireless router" otherwise they just say "No". The hotel is located far from Kyoto. You have to use taxi to the railway station and then the train to get to Kyoto. It takes about 30 minutes each way. The hotel have a bus shuttle to drive from the hotel to the train, but if the bus is full you have to wait for another hour for the next one. This happened to us, and when we asked if they could just drive 2 times: "No". So you risk using 40US$ per day just to get into Kyoto. The hotel has several restaurants on the premises, but they are very expensive and although the food is ok, the quality of the food is far from the price. And be advised that they close at 9 PM. Then there are the gardens that are surrounded by the 5 story hotel and mostly just grass. So all in all we regretted a lot to go there.
