Amazing staff, clean rooms. Japan-style room is great! Will definitely stay again.
I liked that it is close to Gion, but at the same time it was 5 minutes further away from Gion and the city, so it was in an area with less or almost no tourists. The walking tour to the hotel from Gion was special, since you pass through a shinto temple - even at night. Location also very close to park and other temples.
We booked this to get a roykan experience and the rooms are furnished according to Japanese tradition - with futons at night and table at day time. For us, it was maybe a too safe roykan experience, because the only thing it gave us was that we slept on the floor and it cost more than a normal hotel. I guess my complaint also is grounded in the fact that the staff took the liberty to ask if it was OK to let our futons be out all day. With that question my illusion of having a roykan experience totally vanished.
