Older rooms in a nice property. I expected that my room would be just like the ones in the picture, but it was quite the opposite. Small TV with very few channels, 80s/90s furniture, and super dirty showerhead. We had to call the reception and ask them to come and change it. Apparently the indoor pool is charged - can you believe that?

It is near the railway station and the hotel provides the free shuttle service in 15 min interval from 7:30 am to 8:30 pm, which gives us convenient in and out to the hotel. The room is clean and big. Full and high quality toilet kit was provided, which made my face feel not dry during the time in Japan with provided moisture lotion and moisture milk. I really like this hotel will try to book it in next time visiting Kyoto.
