Love this place. The staff are probably the most helpful of any hotel I've been in anywhere in the world, so we keep returning here. Most of the staff speak some English, and the Concierge folks have perfect English and are SOOOOOO helpful. They wlll...More
I liked everything about this hotel, the beds were comfortable, the staff were welcoming, friendly and most spoke English. Easy access to the city centre by their free shuttle bus service. 5 minutes walk to the imperial palace. I would definately recommend.

A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many
shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.

Yes, first hit the airport Tourist Information Center. They speak English there ... and can get you to the right train pretty quickly. Once at Kyoto station, I always just take a taxi to the hotel. It’s fast and not very expensive.
One tip: take along a printout of the hotel’s home page with their name and address in kanji. Or bookmark your Fodor’s with their page to (Fodor’s has the kanji for every destination they review!) Just show it to the taxi driver and you’ll be away in a flash.
