Nice place but not perfect!
Pros: - Very nice staff. Room was clean and nice. - Great location. Bus stations are right in front of the hotel. You can buy bus day-passes from the hotel and you can just hop on/off the buses to get to most attractions in Kyoto within 10' ride. If you don't like the bus, walking to Gion and Pochonto is only 20'. Cons: - There's no AC in the room. Only heating. We had to open the window to let the cool air in.

Rooms smelled of smoke
All the rooms had a smoky smell, and all the non-smoking rooms were sold out. They had air deodorizer sprays in the room, but we ended up using the entire bottle and still not much help. However, after we realized that turning the AC on high for awhile the odor will eventually fade and it was much better.

Small rooms but convenient to subways
Hotel is located near 2 subway lines, a few stops away from the busy downtown. Room was small, but fine if you're not spending much time in it. Staff helpful with directions to sights. One room was fairly clean, second room we stayed in had some stains on the comforter, but everything else was clean. Complimentary slippers were very nice. Huge breakfast buffet (mostly Japanese food). They sell a card to watch unlimited movies and there are directions to buy the card in English but all are dubbed in Japanese.

Urban location
Ark Hotel Kyoto. A modern room with acceptable amenities. Room had 2 twin beds that essentially filled the room. There was a nice desk with room to spread out and held the TV. Check in was painless. Train noise outside was no problem on the 8th floor. Refrigerator and hot water pot was provided. Hotel was a bit too far from Kyoto main station, we spent 1070Y for taxi departing. Location was close to 2 Franklin's that gave us access to different parts of the city. There were plenty of places near by to eat. We were turned away from one near by place that advertised 80Y per piece. We opened the door and the man behind the counter yelled "no seats, no seats". There were clearly empty tables and 2 empty seats at the bar so we turned and left.
