Room Service Review: Ritz-Carlton Kyoto

After a quick nap that turned into a longer slumber, I called down to order some Tempura and Udon noodles for dinner. There was no separate button on the phone for room service, so I just called the operator who transferred me.

I love breakfast, and sometimes when you travel you want breakfast at […]
