The Location and Staff were Superb!
The location is superb; situated in the modern side of Kyoto but old Kyoto can be reached in less than 10 min of walking. The room was surprisingly spacious; it was clean, private and secured with lock. The bathroom and laundry facilities were convenient. The staff were nice and helpful. I loved everything about the hotel and would love to stay again if I will visit Kyoto. I highly recommended this hotel especially to solo traveller.
