Firstly the staff were lovely and helpful and spoke excellent English. However, the main thing to note is that the hotel have a small map on their website and looking at it, it looks like a fairly short walk from the train station. I walked for 40 minutes with a heavy backpack and was only halfway to the hotel, so ended up in a taxi to get the rest of the way, so the map on their website is very misleading as to it's location. Someone on trip advisor said it was a great location but I would strongly disagree. The rooms were ok and served a purpose but its at least a 20 minute walk to the main centre of Kyoto and it's a taxi back if you've had a few drinks.
The mattresses weren't too comfortable either so any back problems, sleep elsewhere.
