Modern, comfortable hotel in an amazing location in the heart of Kyoto’s shopping district, within easy reach of multiple transportation options to all the main historic sites. Despite being in a busy area, it was surprisingly tranquil, with a lovely zen garden off the lobby, and quiet rooms. Very clean and up to date. Room was small by US standards but perfectly adequate and comfortable for a short stay for a family of four. And a great value considering the location. Would stay here again.
