We were glad that the bus stop is right outside the door of the hotel. We purchased breakfast from their cafe downstairs. The first day, the staff reluctantly allow us to take away our food to the room. The 2nd day, the cafe staff will...More

Very friendly and helpful staff with good size rooms. The hotel is in easy walking distance from Gion, about 10 minutes to the centre and not to far from Gojo subway station. The hotel is located in a quiet area and has good laundry facilities....More

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.

Sorry, did not fly in Japan - used their brilliant rail system which was great fun. The trains are very fast, always on time, immaculate and they only sell tickets with an allotted seat so none of that standing room only. Try it, quicker and more fun than flying.
