Nice hotel, rotten location. Rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable and well appointed. However, the restaurants are mediocre and overpriced and there are no good alternatives nearby. You have to walk 10 minutes to the subway and go into Kyoto to eat. I would not stay here again, even with the convenience to the conference center.

Although this Japanese 'bubble economy' era is older, it still exudes a level of sophistication of the past. It is in need of a renovation to its property. The distance and access to the city center is trying. The 5 star level of service has not dropped off. English speaking staff, exquisite food and diverse clientele were intriguing. There was value in staying at this property for my first time, in more ways than one. I will be staying here again in the future.

a bit out dated but confortable, a bit far from city.

Not much english spoken here and the staff wasn't very friendly. Very limited room service menu. Had to pay to tuse the TV.
