Lovely, convenient, some space limitations
This is a lovely place to stay in a convenient location (Karasuma metro and Hankyu line), a Diamaru around, and two wine bars. A few restaurants in walking distance (toward the river), one nice coffee place (%Arabica) within 10 min, the amazing Ogawa about 15min (two other locations in/outside Kyoto station). Beautiful design of entrance and everything new and clean. Rooms have mostly no direct light (close to other buildings) and the usual issue with Japanese hotel rooms: small. This wasn't of the worst kind, though, as there is a corner to put 1-2 suitcases and you can shower standing up (not a given!). Some hanging space in minimal closet. The one issue for me: at least in the double room (two beds) you can't really sit and work at the desk — there is barely room between the desk and the bed, and therefore the "chair" is a small ottoman (no back). I worked on the bed or pushed the ottoman to the wall and put my legs up on the bed.

Comfortable, new, well located hotel.
Comfy beds - two in our room - but neither was a full double. No big deal they were much bigger than singles so we squeezed into one bed. Very good wifi. Central location. No complaints

Great location!
I loved the hotel! The location was just out of the way so it wasn’t near too much, but close enough that the subways and shopping was just less than 5 minutes away! Loved the beds and loved everything about the place!
Alexander, jp2 night trip with friends
Very Good 8.0
For Japan standards, the beds were larger than normal. We had another bed added to make three beds in the room. Beds were cozy enough and not too stiff. The sheets and comforter soft to the touch. Breakfast would be considered spartan but works. Location is excellent. Being dead center in the middle of the city has its perks with restaurants and shopping. 7-11 is just steps away from the hotel too. A nice amenity is the coin op laundry on the 4th floor. The main heritage sites will are roughly 7-10 km away and while it may seem really close will easily take 45-60 min using bus or metro. Not an issue if you plan to stay at least two nights.
