    Lock out period of 11pm-6am. This is a wonderful hotel with lovely staff and amazing facilities. But for people who like to have a night life or spend the whole day out and back early into the morning, this place is not suitable for you.

    Particularly love the bath :) There was no other female guest using the bath at the same time. Very relaxing.

    Very convenient. Less than 10 mins walk from Kyoto Station. Love the onsen! The futon beds and spacious room! Thank you!

    Comfortable Japanese-style room, if you are used to sleep on futon and Kyoto-style pillows (with a layer of small balls). They provide every host with a yukata (light kimono), that can be wear inside the hotel or as a pyjamas. Staff is helpful and provide clear instructions. Public Japanese bath in the basement, not so special but comforting after a long day visiting temples. You have to like the hot water, but it was not especially hot for an ōnsen. They gave us a fan as a gift, which is nice.

    Staff is helpful, but the woman at the reception could be a bit kinder. A couple of extra towels and blankets in the room or ōnsen would've been appreciated. Very inflexible check in and out times. Common spaces are very reduced. Only one (private) shower for the whole hotel and the time for using it is limited. We were in low season, so no problem, but in high season can be a problem, especially when you have no other option in the morning. The toiletries provided are quite limited for Japanese standards. They made us pay a large amount of money because one of our kids had a small accident and wetted a bit the futon. It has been the first time I am charged for wetting the bed in a hotel. Take this into account if you travel with kids, especially if jet-lag affects them.
