This is a traditional Japanese hotel, so the bed is a thin sleep pad on the floor and shoes aren't allowed in the room. Chairs are also very low or on the ground so this is probably not going to be ideal for anyone with mobility issues. However, if you are looking for an authentic Japanese experience, then this is the place. The rooms are lovely, with tatami mats and thoughtful little touches throughout. The staff couldn't be nicer and they even had a few who spoke English which I found to be fairly rare, even in the more Western stlye hotels I stayed in. There is also a lovely Japanese Garden, which is the view for breakfast. I went for the traditional Japanese breakfast which might not be for everyone because in Japan they eat the same things for breakfast as any other meal so amoung other things, it consisted of cooked fish, squid, pickled vegetables and sashimi so not exactly what Westerners are used to but it was beautifully presented and was really good. They do offer a Western breakfast too but I say be brave and go for the Japanese one. The location is great, an easy walk to the World Heritage shrines and the hotel does a shuttle to and from the train stations which is a bonus. I would definitely stay here again.
