We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was beautiful. The location is excellent. The furnishings are exquisite. The restaurant at the hotel is also delicious. We had some issues with the heater and the room being excessively warm but we were eventually able to work through the language barrier and get it resolved. the bath in the room was also amazing, though the bathrooms did lack ventilation so got quite damp. We would absolutely stay here again.

Very stylish super chic boutique hotel, spotlessly clean, with individually designed rooms. Super friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfasts. But the rooms although very stylish lack some practicalities, ours had no headrests on the bed, no drawers, and was very dark with poor lighting. A case of form over function.

It was such a change from all the Ryokans that we had stayed we realized that we were relieved to be able to see everything. We didn't have to pack and unpack on the floor! We had breakfast on 2 of the 3 days we stayed and it was excellent. I can't say enough about the service at the front desk. They were beyond accomodating, helping with maps and manicures, we appreciated their attention to detail. Our room #202 did not have a view and it was light and clean. If you would like to get off the floor for a couple of days I don't think that you could do better than this hotel.

Stayed 2 nights travelling for the Rugby World Cup. The room design was one of the best we have ever experienced. Not cheap, but worth every penny. Breakfast was excellent - we chose the western option. It is located next to the Imperial Palace and park in a very classy area of Kyoto with lots of cool shops, bars and restaurants nearby. Service from all of the staff was absolutely superb.

Stayed in this boutique hotel in Kyoto for only one night, in a suite, living room, bedroom and bathroom, and could happily have spent several more. Kyoto was the capital of Japan - 500 years ago! Looking at the recent reviews I can agree with them all. The staff are outstanding going out of their way to be helpful. We had wanted to visit a Spanish restaurant nearby but it was closed for renovation and we dined in a local one we had passed during our morning tour; okay but so-so.

There seems to be a pattern where to get great service, you must stay in a big time hotel. Classic boutique hotels can disprove that notion sometimes. The Screen is one of those exceptional properties. Interesting design with a nice dining room. The front desk service provided service that was above and beyond the ball.

We were in Kyoto for three days and two nights. We selected the hotel based upon location and proximity to a nearby metro. We weren't totally thrilled with the property but we weren't disappointed either. That is why I am giving it an 'average' rating. The staff was friendly and helpful. The entrance is weird because to get to your rooms you need to go down a level or from the outside down the stairs and then enter. There is a nice lobby area with 24 hour coffee which is nice. There restaurant/bar is nearby. We did not use either. There seemed to be several people, not hotel residents, eating in the restaurant. Each room, we think, has a different decorating theme ours was, as we termed it, the 'curtains' room. There were pull shear curtains on every wall. Cool but funky. Our room was 403 and I would not stay in it again or recommend it. No view, in the corner, small, the bed has only one side you can actually enter, the other you are crawling to get in or out. The bathroom toilet is separate and the tub/shower is nice. All and all, it is okay. The neighborhood is nice and if you like walking you will enjoy the Imperial Palace park nearby and also getting around. There is a walking path along the nearby river that was nice. My only suggestion, if you are staying here, is ask for a room that has a view over the street or a balcony. (Maybe even ask if you can see the room before checking in.)

Spent three nights at this great hotel - staff absolutely delightful! Couldn't have been more helpful and charming! Lovely to be able to go to rooftop bar for complimentary drink on return from sightseeing - very nice touch! Breakfast also great! One point worth making from reading other reviews - ask to have a light room! Ours was huge and white with views over to the temple opposite. Hotel in a great position to walk most places you want to visit. Would definitely want to stay here if visiting Kyoto again!

Hotel is nice. Pleased with the location (could walk to the market-streets and there were nice boutique shops/stores and restaurants on the same street (head south from the hotel)). Rooms were clean and bed was comfortable. Was really impressed with the service. I ended up forgetting my Apple headphones (Airpods) at the hotel. When I emailed the hotel the next day, they had already found them and had them at the front desk. I had already left the country, so they mailed them to me... free of charge. Further, they had to go to the post office twice, as the Airpods needed to have depleted batteries in order to be allowed to be sent via postal service. This level of honesty and service is commendable!

This is definitely one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at. It is just superb. Our room (202) was massive, very quiet, comfortable, and just had everything. It even had a large walk in wardrobe to store cases, as well as a comfortable sitting area, pyjamas, a huge and divine bed, a whirlpool bath...I could go on. I found the location very convenient, we walked to loads of places from here as well as catching two different nearby metro line trains. Oh boy, is it QUIET ! Fantastic My only reservation would be the incessant jazz and dim lighting at breakfast - but nothing would stop me staying here again!
