The location was fantastic. On one side it's a more traditional japan but just across the river is downtown Kyoto with lots of shops. Be sure to have a day to bike around the city. It's wonderful to just roam around the streets of kyoto.
Nice hotel, nice location, nice roof louge. They also have a fully kitchen. Highly recommeded. A bug in my room one night... A little scary.
Awesome location, along the river that divides a busy/upbeat part of the city and Gion, a historic district. Cleanliness was not high on their priority list, and having a whole room decorated in provocative 80`s Madonna posters did not make me feel at home.
