We stayed for three nights at the Kyoto Tower Hotel Annex. I believe it had just opened maybe the week prior to our arrival. It is in a nice location, just a block or two from the Kyoto Tower and the train station. Buses leave from the train station as well. It was just the two of us with small...

Having just finished its renovation in last month or so(march/April 2017) you are greeted by nicely painted exterior, modern lobby/lounge and breakfast space. Upon check in the staff went out of their way to get us maps and discuss our plans while there and provide advice. Guests wishing different pillows or amenities from brushes to face masks can grab them...

After reading all of the negative reviews, I seriously considered canceling our reservation at this hotel. I'm so glad I did not. The hotel has been entirely renovated - there was still a faint smell of paint. The completed hotel is sleek and modern. The only remnant is the hotel's elevator. It works perfectly well. But you can see the...

We spent 4 nights at this hotel which was booked and payed for in advance by our travel company at $330.00 p/n. We would struggle to give this hotel a 3 star rating. Although the room was clean, it was very old and outdated and was so tiny even for Japanese rooms. The lighting was dim and the air conditioning...

There are another Kyoto Tower Hotel and it is easy to get to the wrong place. As both hotels are all located near the central station.

This hotel is very comfortable, clean and quiet to stay in. The breakfast buffet offers a mixture of Japanese and western food with ample choices. In the room, our bed was comfortable, tea making facilities available and the bathroom, though small, very functional. I would not hesitate to stay here on again.

The only reason that you would pick this hotel to stay in is for the location. Literally 3 min walk from the Kyoto station. Otherwise the room was small, the washroom smells and it isn't the greatest, though their staff are quite friendly (typical Japanese).

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
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.
