8/10 Very good

Contemporary, cool if a tad crowded
A new, elegant hotel located in a slightly more residential part of town close to temples and near enough to the heart of tourist Kyoto if you like to walk. Fewer bars and restaurants in ommediate vicinity than other options. Rooms quite spacious, cleverly designed. Dramatic lighting throughout. Service attentive in the Japanese tradition though we weren't allowed to check in as we were 20 minutes early. 20! In house sento a real bonus. Open all night complete with very serious jazz soundtrack. Breakfast room too crowded and wearing of plastic gloves plain silly. Some services (bar, self-serve laundry) restricted due to Covid precautions / lack of staff and / or clients which was frustrating.

4/10 Fair

It was a beautiful property, but the service was horrible. Especially at check-in where we needed to wait for 2 hours and actually needed to go to our diner reservations without even being able check into the room to get ready. There was no efforts to make up for this very clear inconvenience.
