8/10 Very Good

Family trip to Kyoto
We had the room on the top floor. Although the windows were frosted, our room had a garden in the middle with an ariwell that provided natural daylight. It was exactly as how it looked in the website photos. It was a pleasant stay for our family of 4 adults.

Great Place, the only problem I had was I couldn't sleep at all... it was too hot, in our room. I had to get up every 30 minutes or so to turn back on/down the AC, for some reason, it kept going to 28 and wouldn't stay below that for more than 30 mins to an hour. I don't think I could stay again during the summertime.

Nice, traditional Japanese breakfast. The all-day free hot dashi (broth) drink was a great touch! We always grabbed a mug when returning. Convenient location for work or sightseeing. Tons of good local restaurants in the immediate vicinity (although many are popular so reservations may be necessary).
