The GREAT Pagoda Experience
The Pagoda Experience was great! The front desk gave us great recommendations and hotel was walking distance to Toji Temple. Only downfall is there are no elevators, so you need to carry your luggage up and down narrow flights of stairs.

Kyoto loved it
When traveling around on light luggage the washing machine was a real bonus. Area is convenient for train station. Can feel a little far out from nightlife area. Host is very good at communication and early bag drop is catered for.

Nifty Spot
A good location that is right on the local bus routes and a fairly easy walk from Kyoto station (barring one large pedestrian overpass). Having Toji temple right outside the door and down the street was really cool. In-room laundry was a blessing and they provided a rack for drying, which was fun. The desk folk we encountered were all bilingual, which made chatting and getting settled easy. We checked our bags upon arrival (we arrived before check-in) and discovered upon returning that they’d just been left in the entryway largely unattended for 7 hours in full view of the street. Japan is very safe, but even so we were a little uneasy with that - we would have appreciated them being moved into the office. Bedding is traditional futons on tatami, so if you’re not used to that it can be a bit firm. I was fine. We had three futons in our room, so my partner doubled-up after the first night and was then fine also. Considering the hotel was built recently, the lack of a lift feels like an oversight. It’s only three stories, but if you have mobility issues it could be frustrating. The only other issue we had was that we found our room smelled a bit as if something had got wet and never quite dried properly. Everything seemed clean and fresh, but we noticed the smell every time we re-entered the room. It faded from notice after you’d been in a little bit, but it was noticeable for us. Other than that, a lovely spot. A good closet and kitchenet with pots and pans.

Do consider putting up a notice at entrance door
Property still new or very well kept. Very happy with everything. It would be helpful if the property could put a sign at their entrance door for guests who arrive before 10am that they can enter the property and wait at reception area. Many guests assumed the entrance door is locked and waited outside the property.
