Modern-looking, well-resourced hotel conveniently located a stone's throw away from Shijo metro station, and approximately ten minutes on foot from the Gion district. A couple of good restaurants, an (expensive) bar and a Starbucks are on site. Several other dining and drinking options including an Irish pub are nearby. Decently sized room (we stayed in a double) for Kyoto with a comfortable bed, quiet location and decent water temperatures/pressures. Bath towels were a little on the threadbare side though. The hotel was conveniently located for sightseeing, given its proximity to Shijo (just two stops away from Kyoto station) and Karasuma stations, making it a little easier to get to attractions like the Inari shrine and Kinkaju-ji (Golden Pavilion). About ten to fifteen minutes walk from locations like Nijo castle and the Gion district. If we manage to return to Kyoto someday, we'll definitely stay here again.
