Great location - would stay again for location

This is our second APA hotel that we've stayed at so far. Nothing that really caught my attention honestly other than the amazing location. I'd stay at this hotel again especially for the location. Literally, the Yasaka shrine is less than a block away. One tiny thing was that it felt a little dusty near the curtains.

The staff went above and beyond to help us with tracking down my husband's passport and railpass that he accidentally left in a taxi. It was recovered within the hour - letting us rest easily our first night in Japan. Clean, comfortable rooms as well!
