It's super near the Kyoto JR station. The room was neat and tidy, and there were a few shopping malls near the hotel (AEON, AVANTI, Isetan, Don Quijote etc...)
Staff were nice and friendly, but most of them only knew simple English, which was barely adequate for handling ordinary check-in and check-out. It's a bit difficult to communicate if you need other assistance.
The ventilation in the bathroom and air-conditioner in the room were both out of order throughout the 8-night stay. Luckily we can open the window a bit and it was cool outside, so it's still acceptable.
The Wi-Fi network was really unstable and did not work most of the time. The staff did give us a router, but it didn't work well either. (They provided us a standard instructions on how to connect to the internet using the router, so I guess this was a rather common problem.) If internet is important for you, please make sure you have your own data card.
Regardless of the hardware problem, it's a pleasant stay.
