We appreciate the good location next to main train station. Rooms were clean.
There were 5 extra futons on a wardrobe but 3 of them we didn't dare to use because of large humidity stains on them. Walls are thin and you can hear neighbour's...More
Location was superb. Lodging itself, was clean and functional. I booked the room with attached bath and toilet, so, privacy was not an issue. Air conditioning worked fine. The problem with this establishment is the unfriendly, unsmiling, joy-sapping personas of the staff. I did not...More
It is my first time staying in a Japanese style bedroom. I must say, it is comfortable even though we were sleeping on the floor. There is a shared Japanese bathroom where all women take shower together. There is even a bathtub where i understand...More
Nihonkan is very strict with its rules and regulations. This did not serve well for me as I had a Skype meeting and wanted a decent space (or even a corner to do it). The curfew aside, you cannot even be at the lobby area...More

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.

This place is a ryokan, not a hotel with all facilities you might be looking for. The place and rooms are comfortable but in a traditional Japanese style so it might not be appropriate for senior adults. It's a three storey building counting the basement where shower facilities are. The top floor is also available for guests.
