From the outside the hotel looks much less traditional - but the rooms are.
Travelling to Japan staying in a traditional hotel is a MUST - this is really amazing. By japanese standards to room is huge. The staff is attentive, there are always sweets and tea available as well as a good wifi connection. No need to fear sleeping on the floor - the futon is really comfortable.

We tried the Japanese style room with 5 of us in one room, and found it was one of the highlights of the trip. The baths were a big bonus.

Our youngest child wasn't offered any breakfast even though he was almost 3. We chose the western menu to ensure the children would eat something and even though we arrived exactly at the time it was pre ordered for the night before (8am) it was stone cold. Which is fine for some food but not bacon and eggs! Value for money, it wasn't cheap for what you got. We are staying at another four star hotel in Tokyo (Sheraton grande) at a comparable price per night but it's far superior. The place is quite tired looking and could a refit. It is supposed to be sparse, we know, but it was quite low end kitted out. We only received 2 towels for the (extremely dated) shower. There was plenty of bedding for us all but we found the futons to be very uncomfortable, but that is unlikely to be the hotels front. Ok so we got a bottle of water for free and two small samosa style cookies but these cost less than 1000yen at circle K.
The location was great for the bus stops and the tube line and the fact die to the fact that all of the Kyoto attractions are spread around the city. We wanted to give our children (ages 2,8,11 and 14) an authentic Japanese hotel experience for one night and they got that. There was a circle K and an American restaurant around the corner that allowed us to eat and get snacks easily. The guide book in the room that simply told us the buses to get for the main attractions in the city was helpful. The staff spoke reasonably good English and were very helpful.

The place is getting a bit tired in common areas. Poor wifi in room.
Best: Location convenient to shopping, temples, shrines, bus lines. Helpful staff. Spacious room. Nice large bath.

This hotel is very old fashion but very clean. Bathroom does not meet nowadays needs. For long stay sleeping on the ground can be uncomfortable.
The room was nice for young family. Japanese bathhouse.

Room for five leaves little space for luggage Breakfast is nothing special, but there are plenty of alternatives not too far from hotel

Could be less expesive.
Almost everything, including wi-fi, localization, comfortable beds and clean bathroom.
March 24, 2015
Futons were uncomfortable, and we needed to use extra bedding as it was quite cold Hotel quite dated, and restaurant looks unappealing. Very expensive for what we got out of it, when we could've paid half the price for the Westin!

Tradition japanese ryogan

The tatami mats were a bit hard.
Great location. I was the only one using the bathhouse after 10pm. We left some things after we checked out and the staff kindly posted it to our next hotel.
