It was a beautiful property, but the service was horrible. Especially at check-in where we needed to wait for 2 hours and actually needed to go to our diner reservations without even being able check into the room to get ready. There was no efforts to make up for this very clear inconvenience.

Every single employee was kind and greeted us when we walked by. They were all EXTREMELY helpful. The breakfast was large and delicious we had both the traditional Japanese and american breakfast. Check in and checkout process was a breeze. We were very sad to leave this hotel and wish we had stayed in kyoto longer than two nights. I would recommend this hotel and stay here if I return to kyoto. The location was perfect, very close to some great sight seeing opportunities and we were able to walk to the train/subway stations quite easily. The bath/spa was closed while we were there due to the corona virus; this did not bother us so much as the rooms were spacious and comfy. We had no issues communicating with staff in English.

Terrible breakfast, stale rolls, dreadful coffee, pineapple with the skin left on. Not even a normal sized spoon- I was offered a teaspoon to eat yoghurt.
