It's my repeat visit to this lovely hotel in Kyoto - since the last visit 4 years ago the hotel has been expanded.

This is a charming boutique hotel in Kyoto. Pricey. Very comfortable rooms. Plentiful breakfast - choice between Japanese or Western. Staff is very welcoming and service is very good. I would stay again and recommend it for a stay in Kyoto.
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.
You can catch a shuttle bus from Kyoto station. Buy your tic in advance to secure your seat. I think it takes one half to 2 hours to get to Kansai airport from Kyoto. JAPANESE public transport is very punctual and efficient... More
You can catch a shuttle bus from Kyoto station. Buy your tic in advance to secure your seat. I think it takes one half to 2 hours to get to Kansai airport from Kyoto. JAPANESE public transport is very punctual and efficient. Your hotel will be best able to advise u on the best time to depart from Kyoto to Kansai airport.
