Loved this hotel!

We stayed in a Japanese-style room and it was so cute and comfortable! We were in Japan for two weeks and this was my favorite place we stayed. It's a small boutique hotel so it's pretty quiet and the location is good. Right next to a nice coffee shop and bus stop. The front desk had laundry supplies and drying racks to borrow which was nice. Overall I would recommend this place if you want to have a quiet neighborhood hotel to unwind in after exploring Kyoto.
