This location was easy to find and accessible to the public transportation, temples and restaurants. The ryokan ensured that guests were never bored as they offered so many traditional Japanese experiences like the tea ceremony, breakfast options of Japanese or European. Over all, it was wonderful!

I personally do not like this ryokan. Due to the rate is quite expensive compared to others, and I was expecting to get better in room service but not. We will need to get amenities such as comb, toothbrush and etc in lobby. It should have put inside our room instead. Besides, there is no free bottle water or even...

We stayed 4 nights at this great hotel. The rooms (western style) are good and the staff is really nice and very helpful. They have a decent breakfast menu served at cosy tables in the lobby. It is relatively easy to get to the major sights of Kyoto from the hotel and the staff was always helpful at providing directions....

I wanted a real Japanese experience. Although a little bit of a walk from the station, it allows a genuine experience of Kyoto. Staff are hard working and helpful. The optional breakfasts are lovely and allow a good start to the day. The room was lovely and toastie and quiet when coming in from the cold.

The photos don't do justice to this gem. It's a traditional-style ryokan with tatami rooms and futons -- with an added layer of padding that made them quite comfortable. Everything seems to have been renovated recently; the entire place is pristine. Two major shrines are within blocks, and it's very close to the station. A major bus line is a...

This ryokan is clean, homely and the staff are wonderful. This ryokan won't break the bank and is very close to kyoto station and not far from a lot of the main sights. There is an amazing temple just down the road that we nearly missed that i highly recommend. Our room was a traditional room overlooking a small garden...

The room is clean and tidy. Staffs are very friendly. They provided a map of nearby area which includes restaurants, supermarkets and even paid baths. The staff can speak very fluent English. You can feel how Japanese live by staying in this very Japanese home feel hotel.

This is an excellent ryokan in a great location in Kyoto. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the room was excellent and had everything i needed. Having 24hr access also came in handy. I will definitely be staying here on my next visit to Kyoto. Thanks

A little walk from kyoto station and downtown, so not the best location but still accessible. Our traditional ryokan room was small, typical. The restroom was really small and the toilet wasn't the high end Japanese high tech we found in nicer hotels. The restroom also had a musty smell after use. Ok for the ryokan experience but would not...

We had never stayed in a Ryokan before and so we tried this time. The hotel looks charming and the hosts and staff were excellent, so polite and helpful. The whole place is very clean and serene; a nice quiet place to rest. We regretfully had to miss breakfast because of early train to catch. The room was an average...

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
