Beautiful location
This is a very convenient location it is close to the train station, Kyoto tower, aeon mall, train ride away from Nara, plus this hotel offers parking for those traveling in their car. Staff was extremely helpful and polite. I highly recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to Kyoto.
