Family of 4 stayed 3 nights before Christmas
Family of 4 stayed in 2 rooms for 3 nights just before Christmas. Rooms were very clean, staff were very polite and helpful, overall hotel facilities were excellent, Japanese spa was very good refreshing and neat/clean. just 5 mins walk from Kyoto station. however, we find that the breakfast was not as delicious... though the spread was quite good.
