The door men, concierge, front desk, room service and housekeeping all speak good English, enough to communicate. So no problem there. The hotel was full due to sakura blossoms. Our saturday rate was higher than sunday and came down for the weekday rates. The hotel is quite off from the central Shijo-dori shopping area, or the old Gion, or Kyoto... More

First time in Kyoto. We stated here cos the rooms are newly renovated and very comfortable. They look exactly like the pictures in the hotel website. Very spacious by Japanese standard.

Staying in Nishijin District

Neighbourhood Profile
Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.
