Neighbourhood
Shimogyo-ku
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

I stayed one night alone, then joined my tour group and was moved to a different room for the next 2 nights. The first room was fine, but the solo room was a little dated and cramped (e.g. getting to the window past the wall TV involved a contortion and balance... and there was

Thank you for staying at Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Shijo. We are pleased to find out that you have been satisfied with our service, public bath, and location. It is our pleasure to provide the services for our guests to stay comfortably. We have various features to our facilities. Our garden view public bath, which can be used by our guests without any extra charge, is widely popular amongst our guests. Although we are in central of Kyoto, our hotel is situated in a quiet residencial area. We hope it helped you to have a relaxing time here. Nevertheless, it is unfortunate that it seems that we could not meet your expectations with our single bed room this time. We have various types of rooms so please check out our website and find your ideal room. If you have an another opportunity, we would recommend you to give a try to a "Deluxe Double Room" which has 25 sqm of space and the bed size is 240x196 cm. It definitely has a touch of luxury and is offered at a reasonable price depending on the season. We hope we will have an opportunity to welcome you back in the near future. Thank you for your comment. Front Office Manager

Thank you for staying at Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Shijo. We truly appreciate that you have shared your comment with us. It is wonderful to find out that you have enjoyed your previous stay at our hotel. As a hotel we work hard to create an environment where our guests can stay comfortably with our services and facilities. Therefore your comment means a great deal to us. Fortunately, we are located in central of Kyoto and easily accessible from the most of the major tourist spots in Kyoto by bus or by underground. Shijo underground station is approximately 5 to 10 minutes on foot from our hotel. The famous Nishiki Market is only a 15 minute walk from here. There you are already in the lively district of Shijo and Kawaramachi. The old temple of Rokkakudo is also near to the Nishiki Market too. We hope your stay has been something memorable. We would like to welcome you back again in the near future. Front Office Manager

This hotel is located North of the main rail station, right next to bus stops & subway station. Amenities are really fine except for the small size of the room and leaking tap in the bathroom. The public bath is nice though gets easily crowded in the evening. Staff was friendly,

Other than its location, which is close to most bus stops, the hotel does not have much to say for itself. Small, dark, well-used hotel rooms are way too expensive. 280+ rooms served by two elevators; waiting time in "rush hour" can be 10 - 20 minutes. The restaurant serves

Thank you for staying at Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Shijo. We are highly pleased that you are satisfied with our location and the services we provide. Fortunately we are situated in the central area of Kyoto and convenient for both city bus and underground services. It is an honor to be here as a hotel for almost 20 years.

Because our hotel is visited by many guests from all over the world, we are making efforts to create the environment that is satisfactory for all the guests. Although we still need to work hard to train our teams to ensure the highest levels of communication and service. Regarding to our breakfast, it is served in a buffet style together with Japanese cuisine as well as Western cuisine. It is made by our skilled chefs and bringing out the natural flavors of the ingredients. At our hotel we have various types of rooms on offer.

My husband and I spent 6 nights here and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Everyone is very polite and eager to help, the whole hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms, while a little small by American standards are quite adequate. All the rooms and all public restrooms are
