The room was quite spacious, with two double beds. Very well-equipped with places to charge electronics. The bath was extraordinary, with a large separate space that had a soaking tub and shower. It was almost like having a private onsen. An in-room Japanese massage (Shiatsu) cost about the same as a spa massage would have cost in many US cities.... More

Comfortable room with adequate bathroom facilities. Comfortable beds. Good reception on arrival with numerous young ladies keen to help. Great breakfast with vast array of choices to suit overseas visitors and Japanese alike.

Extremely not happy with the UNPROFESSIONAL AND NOT HELPFUL personnel by the name of MEHMET. Should not be placed at Front-of-the House area. Not smiling and UNwilling to answer or providing in-house facilities when queries. Ask to refer to Concierge which she is not good in English. Destroying our family mood.

Was only booked in for one night and, after reading some luke warm reviews, the hotel actually exceeded my expectations! The room was huge and had a great view looking out over eastern Kyoto! Every amenity was offered (razor, toothbrush/paste, pajamas, even a facial mask). The bed was very comfortable and the room was posh and clean. The staff were... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here! The bed was super comfy and the bathroom was a dream. I wish I knew where they sell their shampoo and conditioner because it smelled so good! Anyway, our stay was short and magical. Great place to stay in Kyoto if you are visiting.

The quality of a standard room for the price is appalling. After leaving the Hyatt Regency at Tokyo (the Hyatt was actually slightly cheaper) we arrived at the Nikko and were not only made to wait for our room after the appropriated check in time but also were disgusted by the room itself. Hotel looks as though it has not... More

The hotel is located a few minutes walk from Shijo Karasuma station and easy to walk with luggage.

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.
