From Nagoya station, it is a subway and railway trip to the hotel. Be aware that neither of these trips are covered by the JR pass.
Although a hike from the city centre, the hotel is well-placed to explore beautiful Kyoto, with buses and trains to almost everywhere. I found the staff competent, but not especially friendly. My room was clean and well-maintained.
The hotel does have a sento (traditional public bath) which is free for guest use, however the pool costs extra.
The hotel is quite affordable and I would probably stay there again.
Very Good 4/5
