10/10 Exceptional

This was a very nice hotel with a good mix of modern and traditional Japanese style room. We had a room for 5 people and it was very spacious. The lighting in the room is very elegant and pleasant. The balcony is a nice space as well. It was very convenient that they have a microwave and laundry service on the first floor. The staff is very nice and accommodating. It was in a good location to many popular places. There are many good restaurants around as well

Bus 50 from Kyoto station stops right outside of the hotel. Many convenient stores around. Short walk to Nishiki Market. Bathroom is very small, other than that, good experience sleeping on futons/tatami floor.

Changed rooms after finding hair on the floor and the futons. Second room had even more hair, and food remains on the floor. Definitely can’t recommend to anyone.
