I stayed here for 4 nights the first part of June 2014, and had a great stay. Like other guests have said, the location can't be beat. It's right at the heart of the train/subway/bus lines, so it's perfect for exploring any part of Kyoto or beyond. True, the room (and especially bathroom) needs to be updated, but the staff and location are really what sells the hotel. The concierge went out of their way (THANK YOU!) for helping me find a particular item, and were probably the nicest concierge staff of any hotel I have stayed at. They also helped us plan our day to several sites, and printed out which bus stops and train stops we needed to take which took a lot of the stress away. We didn't eat at the hotel restaurants, but ate quite frequently at Porta (an underground mall a few steps away from the hotel), and the Cube (another mall within Kyoto station), so there are a ton of eating options close by. Also, a Starbucks and Baskin Robbins across the street that we went to frequently as well. When I go back to Kyoto, I would definitely stay here again.
