This property is amazing such a beautiful room and atmosphere and the beds are so comfortable. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. This hotel is in such a great location to explore Arashiyama and escape the hustle and bustle. If you are visiting Japan and are traveling in family groups or even as a couple I highly recommend staying here as it’s also such great value for money. I would definitely not hesitate to recommend or to stay again!
