I stayed here as a visitor of Kyoto University. The location is good for this purpose, but I probably would not recommend this place for tourists, considering it takes 40mins by bus to go to Kyoto Station. The room is tiny, it was not possible...More
The room was compact but cozy at this little hotel near Kyoto University. No frills. But a courteous staff. And the price is right. The location is convenient to visit the magnificent Buddhist temples and Philosophers' Path, on the eastern fringe of the city.
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
