The apartment type hotel was perfect. It was small but efficient. It had a little kitchen equipped with everything we needed to cook, a microwave, stove top, hot pot, pan, dishes, utensils, and fridge. Even had a washer. Near grocery store and eateries. Train station in walking distance. The only glitch is the check in counter was a bit away. It's across Kyoto station and closed at 2000. It required us to take a short trip on a train to get to it the next day as we arrived after closing. Not too big a deal. We'll definitely stay again.
