Really enjoyed my stay here! Definitely not The Ritz, but, in my opinion, while it is a 3* hotel, it's comparable to many good 4* hotels, with the only thing holding it at a 3* is that it is limited service. The single room I had was clean and comfortable, and had everything I could possibly ask for. The bathroom was on par with many of the hotels I stayed at on my trip. Staff were great! The location might be slightly off the beaten path (but only ever so slightly), however, the price clearly reflects this, as it was a steal for Kyoto when I was there (about 5500 yen/night for a single room). The subway station is about a 5 minute walk away, and it is just one stop to the train station, and there are elevators at the station. No real restaurant per se, but there's plenty of food within walking distance, including a small grocery store across the street (fairly limited) and also a huge mall about a 10-15 minute walk away with lots of restaurants and a sizeable grocery store with great selection where you can stock up on breakfast foods as well as lots of other stuff. Overall, a great experience, and would definitely recommend!
