From the moment we checked in we appreciated the simple elegance and relaxed feel of this place. On arrival we were asked to take a seat and brought tea to enjoy as forms were filled out and payment was made. We stayed in a garden room, a good size tatami mat room with an entry hall, a small 'dressing' room and standard Japanese 'capsule' bathroom. Having an outlook over a small but pleasant garden was really lovely and rare in urban Japan. We opted to have the western style breakfast which was perfectly adequate to get you on your way in the morning-there aren't many other options nearby. There is wifi in the common areas, but you can also borrow a router to have it in your room, which worked really well for us. We also used the laundry facilities which was a hassle free and relatively quick process. The area is very quiet without many eating options close by, but there are plenty in the station area, about a 10-15 minute walk away. It's a fair walk to the central part of Kyoto, but the buses and metro are pretty easy to use. This is a lovely relaxed way to experience Japanese style accommodation, and a good base for exploring Kyoto.
