Love this hotel!

"This was a great hotel! Situated in the heart of the Gion district of Kyoto. It is up on a hill, so if you are taking the bus to the hotel, just be fair warned (and the street is cobblestoned). Service is amazing, the hotel is awesome, and only 8 rooms so it is fairly private. There is no tv in the ..."…"
