The property was modern and clean. The breakfast was okay. The property is located in a residential street. It is not visible from the main street. It was very convenient to Kyoto Station and other shops.

We had a lovely stay here! The staff are very accommodating, respectful, very helpful. It was thoughtful of them giving us an adjoining room for 4 adults. Breakfast was really good, so many choices :) location was great considering I came with 60yo parents, and luggages, yet also tucked into a neighborhood so it was quiet. The place is beautiful inside out, if you appreciate design, as it was designed by a renowned Japanese architect. The amenities are perfect, in room washer/dryer including detergent, rice cooker, toaster and microwave, dishwashing soap and utensils are great and there are convenience stores/groceries nearby. Within walking distance to restaurants as well. I would check in here later this year again as I really enjoyed it. My parents also recommend this to their friends. I highly recommend!

部屋がとても綺麗で気に入ったが、外の日差しが入ってこないことが少し気になった。 外の音などは聞こえなかったので、夜もよく眠ることができた。駅の近くなのでうるさいかなと思っていたが杞憂だった。 お風呂も豪華だったので旅のいい思い出になった。夜眠る時に天井に描かれた桜の花に癒され、リラックスできた。一泊しかしなかったが、もう少し滞在していたかった。

住宅地に忽然と現れるデザイナーズホテルって感じです。新しいホテルでとても快適でした。ミニキッチンがあるので、ちょっとした料理も出来ます。 風呂とトイレが別なのはとても高評価です。 黒を基調とした部屋の雰囲気はとても好感が持てます。 風呂にお湯を溜めた際、明らかに私のではない髪の毛が2本浮いていたのが気になりました。 ランドリーバッグ、入浴剤が欲しいですね。 私は同じホテルには泊まりませんが、ここは再度泊まりたいと思いました。お勧めします。これが本当に残念でした。

飯店藏身於巷子內,地點離車站很近,樓層內有販賣機,附近也有便利商店 床很大很舒適,早餐很美味,尤其是飯糰,美中不足的是每一天品項差不多,只有稍稍改變內餡的口味。 洗手檯稍微小一點,水容易噴的到處都是 住雙人房但是刮鬍刀只有提供一隻 最後,某天只是下樓吃飯店內的早餐,門口沒有貼請清潔或是請勿打擾,回來發現房務人員已經在房內打掃,因為隨身物品都放在房間內還沒有收拾,雖然東西沒有少,房務人員也很誠懇的道歉,但是家人還是很在意⋯
