Close to shopping areas.
The location of the hotel is within walking distant to many shopping facilities. It was very easy to catch a taxi there as well.

Stay at Court Hotel in Kyoto
The room was OK. Great location. But the smoking in the hotel was very off-putting. The rates varied per the day of the week and almost doubled for the weekend. The room wasn't worth the high end rate. The pillows were also awful!!

Bad Service. Wont recommend
The receptionist are not so helpful and accomodating especially during check in. Our aircon was not working properly it was so hot even on a low temp already comapred to the other rooms( from my friends) so we inform the hotel but they keep on telling us to just wait for few minutes and it will be cold. But u tild them its been on for 30mins already and no change still hot. I asked one of my friend who is book on the other room to check it and go to our room. Same comment with me the aircon is not cold. And the guy from the hotel still insisting that nothing is wrong with our aircon and its cold. So my friend check the air filter and tadah --its full of dust literally DUST. The hotel guy got a vacuum and clean it on the spot. But imagine the dust are flying on our room and we are all their. Not a single word or even apologetic to what happened. Then after cleaning the air filter of the aircon our room was now cold. Really bad service. Old hotel and is not worth your money. They are still using keys to the room not a key card.

Great location, decent hotel
We stayed in this hotel three nights and had a positive experience! Check in was fast and the staff was always professional. The room was also a nice size and the area was very convenient for sightseeing and eating! Only downside was the hotel is old, so the interior and some bedding are clearly aged.
