Can't say enough wonderful things about this hotel. The location was perfect, right in the middle of the Higashiyama district, a short bike ride to the temples in either the northern part of the district or the south. A shuttle ran every 30 minutes to Gion, a 15-minute ride away. The view of the city from the rooftop was stunning. But best of all was the service, by far the best I've experienced anywhere. The concierge went out of her way to sort out a problem with one of the bikes we rented from an outside vendor, even going so far as to pay us back for the faulty bike before the vendor came to pick it up. We must have asked them to reserve a half dozen restaurants for us and they kept trying until we finally found a place that was open/not booked.
The rooms, though a little dated, were very spacious and clean, with a nice view of the gardens. I would return to this hotel in a second and I can't say that about many places.
