Pretty good

No vegetarian food at all in their restaurant, but that’s pretty typical of anywhere in Japan.

Very well situated right next to trains and buses

Pros: Location
Cons: Rooms look very tired and old
Location: Accessibility
There was a construction happening next door to the hotel. An eye sore looking out from our window. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Although upon our arrival, no one assisted us with our luggages. We had to advise the Receptionist upon our check in that no one offered to relieve us of our luggages. First impression was quite disappointing.

Close to the train station and centre of Kyoto

Pros: Location
Cons: The space in the rooms
Location: The whole of Kyoto is at your door step to be explored, the train and the buses are just out the front.
This was a very old hotel with its classic charm. The rooms felt luxurious but was quiet busy with lots of furniture. The room size was typically Japanese so not very roomy but the room was filled with too much furniture. Makes even less room to move about. The hotel was so close to the train and bus station so it's very convenient. My wife liked the French breakfast but I think the traditional Japanese style breakfast was an experience. The staff was helpful but did not find them to be friendly . Overall good hotel I might shop around for another next time and see what else is out there.
