City Centre
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

Breakfast included but the staff asked us to pay for several times. The hotel forgot to give us the breakfast tickets and we tried to explain but hard to communicate. Finally the staff told us the breakfast is included. They made a mistake but didn't say sorry to us.

Location is great, spa is great. The room was clean and nice. The staff was not so friendly, but we had no problems overall. They held our luggage after we checked out so that we could explore more, which was helpful.

Can I use the women's spa if I have tattoos?
I did not use the spa so I am not sure. Perhaps it depends on where and how big the tattoos are? I would ask the hotel directly.

"The washroom has a glass door...for “safety reasons”. If you need a bit of privacy, you can request a privacy curtain from the front desk."
"Even if you are a single go for a double room. Space is a problem."
"higher and at front of hotel is better to escape tram noise"
