Great Place in Kyoto
This was a great hotel for my trip to Kyoto. Its a little smaller but its ina perfect location that is a little out of way of the city center but in prime location to walk to the Imperial Palace (its right across the street) and other temples and shrine. The metro is also a block away so its easy to travel into the city if you want.
