No coffee in the rooms as there is a Starbucks downstairs. Reception is on the 1st floor. The room was clean and the breakfast was good. It is a distance from the bullet train so had to catch 2 trains to get there.

Easy to get to this hotel from Kyoto Station, short trip on the 206 bus, nearly dropped to your doorstep. Temples nearby, markets and restaurants all within an easy radius. Hotel room was clean, air conditioned and quiet given it’s in the hub of things.

Gion
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
