We stayed here for two nights in Kyoto, and absolutely loved it, along with the stunning city. Very well-appointed rooms with heat and AC, lovely little garden with lights for night viewing, a fantastic washer-dryer in the room that worked GREAT, and there's another washer dryer in the hotel, comfortable cozy beds and blankets, and free Netflix in the room! Staff were so wonderful and welcoming and spoke English well, and they made room delivery of the light breakfast in the morning as well. Location is great, in a quiet nook of the area, walking distance to public transport and Kyoto's historic area, which I highly recommend visiting!

Loved this hotel - the staff were very welcoming and pleasant and booked us complimentary taxis. Brekkie included, Nespresso coffee and drinks each day. Netflix, apple tv and a desk with power connections. The rooms were quite large for Japanese standards and extremely comfy! The beds were high futon style, kids had their own room, two bathrooms which were gorgeous and well appointed. Our favourite place in Japan so far, will definitely love to return!
