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.

The Nikko Princess Kyoto is very well located and only a short walk to the subway and the main shopping street and just a bit further to Gion. The hotel is a little dated in its decor but the our junior suite was really large and well maintained. The staff were all very helpful

How do you change language from Japanese to English on your website? I went there directly from TripAdvisor. I searched for a while, but gave up. Normally there are flags or something similar. Did not see it anywhere.
On the top menu, on the right there is a rectangular brown button, click it. English is on the list Have fun

Does this hotel help guests make reservations at outside restaurants before they check in? I.e. are they willing to make reservations on behalf of guests before they arrive in Kyoto?

x andare al quartiere gion che mezzo prendo?alla sera e` pericoloso?ho visto che dall albergo mi mette 25 min a piedi ma e` un pochino lontano...
Si, ci vogliono circa 25 min a piedi o 10 min in taxi dall'albergo a Gion. Non è pericoloso. Tanti turisti divertono a passeggiare alla sera. Chie KOMATSU Hotel Nikko Princess Kyoto
