Excellent location, right across from JR station, one stop from Kyoto station, when it's raining, take the underground walkway and then take the elevator to the hotel, very convenient, provided two complimentary small bottles of drinking water daily, there's a Japanese hot bathing facility for ladies to enjoy, the Italian buffet was very worth it and good. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially there's one speaking Mandarin which is our native language and he helped us the most. The room was clean and quiet. good matcha and green tea, two sets of pajamas, replaced a new set if worn the night before, slippers, kettle for making hot water, Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine to make a cup of Uji matcha tea, very good hair dryer, bus station right in front, subway right under, and train station right across, shopping in next building, so convenient, change beddings every day, hair dryer is very good, amenity goods are good, but no shower caps, have to ask for one, also provide iron and board upon request,
