Great stay
Great staff and customer service. I had an issue with my room after checking in. They were quick to find me a new room. The spa was a great bonus, and very welcomed after a long day of walking.

Hotel Elcient Kyoto
The hotel is located only about a half block from the Kyoto train station, so the location is excellent. The rooms, while small (as they often are in Japan), was clean and offered amenties like pajamas, in-room safe, and various free toiletries. Free cups of noodles were offered every night as well.

Save yourself - stay elsewhere
Honestly the worst hotel experience of my life. There isn’t room here to go into everything that was wrong, but the one that put me over the edge was how the staff managed one particular problem. My room was boiling lava hot when I checked in, like opening an oven door. I opened the window (it’s November) and turned on the air full blast, but it didn’t help...there was clearly something amiss with the heating system in this room. I went downstairs, and after about five minutes of explanation, the manager finally told me that all the rooms are the same temperature, so basically get over it (my words, but that was the gist). I persisted, but I got nowhere...they treated me like I was crazy, and essentially called me a liar (again, my words). But, there was no way I would be able to sleep in that room, so I kept on until finally they agreed to give another room. This took about 20 minutes. He came up to my old room to experience the jungle temperature for himself (my suggestion). “It’s a little warm,” admitted there manager, and then started to run down a list of all the possible things I could have done to make it so hot. Poor guy didn’t know what he was in for - a hot New Yorker who had just been called a liar, had lost a full hour of her single day in Kyoto dealing with nonsense, and was now being told it was her fault. Folks, this hotel is not worth your precious time. See also the attached photo - a sign that was in the room that embodies their approach to customer service.

Staff was unprepared to handle a lady with monthly cramps. The front desk called 911! Leading to a wasted day , trip to hospital and billing concerns. They at minimum should have offered a discount. In addition when my fiancé had pain no one could speak English however when everyone wanted money a translator was quickly made available. However everyone was polite, courteous and apologetic in not doing anything.

Great location
A few minutes walk from Kyoto Station, Shinkansen super express train exit. Many restaurants, convenience store, discount store nearby. The room was a bit small for American standard. 3 beds in the room were all put together on the sides. The best part was a big bath house on the 2nd floor only for the hotel guests. You cannot wear swimsuit (men/women separate) and you have to wash your body first before soaking the huge bath tab, but you will enjoy Japanese-style bath. I loved the breakfast buffet too. It is a reasonable price for the quality. Laundry facilities on multiple floors were nice. It was a washer/drier combined machine. Do not put too many clothes, they will not be dried completely. I will definitely recommend this hotel.

Great location
Great location, room was small, but comfortable and clean. Friendly staff. Required a room key to get on the elevator, which I thought it was a good security measure (not that you need to worry too much being in Japan).
