Read more It’s a well renovated hotel with modern amenities but have a traditional Kyoto style. I like hotel designs and where it’s located. Dinner was superb but surprisingly fair price. Staff is nice and helpful but I think they can do more or train better because the price of this hotel. Overall, I like it, but it’s really a little pricey.
