Although we had a great stay, I'm reviewing this hotel to share my feelings. This hotel is not for everyone, it was 15 mins away from the heart of the city. This was meant to be a boutique hotel with a Japanese touch, there was...More
This is a very small, boutique hotel with a modern facade and lobby and "interesting" rooms. The front desk staff speaks excellent English and was very helpful in helping us navigate Kyoto.

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.
