4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Good food, drinks are pricey. Hotel is quite dated and needs a major overhall to keep up with the Hoshino standard.
Stayed 2 nights in Dec 2018

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
It´s a pleasant place to to enjoy the view, a romantic hotel (also if u go with family) its great that they have a shuttle that go for you, contact for their hours and locations at least one day before. Excellent french cuisine.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great hotel for a romantic weekend away
This is beautiful French provincial style hotel on the Mountain top . The staff are exceptionally helpful and the rooms are beautifully presented.You will have some great views from your hotel and the mountain itself. Keep in mind you will need to reach the Hotel via either hotel shuttle bus ( You need to call the hotel in advance and book , also confirm which station they will pick you up from ) If you do not use the shuttle bus it will cost between 30000 Yen to 50000 Yen depending on which station you get the taxi from. B

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Very bad hotel
Not worth the money. Very limited services, English speaking staff, and shuttle runs. I spent over $100 in 1/2 day on taxi services because the shuttle has limited runs to Kyoto. I cannot believe this hotel is charging these rates for what they have to offer. The views are enjoyable going up the mountain, but once you get there, not much else to do. No bar or food services. We stayed one night and moved to the Century Hotel (much better stay) near the Kyoto Station.
