Spending 6 nights, I couldn't have asked for more! Every where else was booked during fall foliage period. Place is small but good enough to have some quiet relaxing sleep! What was great was its location sits right about center of Kyoto, minutes walk to bus station, and so many bus lines takes you to all directions n all attraction....

We stayed here on a very busy period and the prices were higher than usual (about triple). It is located just 2 stops away from the main station and in the middle of the shopping district, with loads of cafés and markets nearby. The room was more spacious than we anticipated but not massive. The bathroom looked like a cruise...

The room it's seriously dirty and the carpet it's better walk on with shoes on and not barefoot . The staff at the desk or reception most of the time don't say any greet, the breakfast it's always the same and cold stuff. Overpriced but not to far from the subway and the centre. Anyway it doesn't worth the money...

This place feels more like a hostel - and I've been to nicer hostels than this. I don't mind primitive accommodation but I mind if it's dirty. The duvet on beed has stains, the floor has not been vacuumed and the table is greasy. Basically, they changed the sheets since last guest. Very uncharming cramped room and bathroom. Location is...

This is a typical Japanese hotel so the room and bathroom are very snug, but has everything you need including a fridge and kettle. The bathroom includes a bath although again, very snug sized. The staff all speak enough English to get by and are very helpful. Breakfast is very basic for westerner tastes although probably appeals more to the...

Stayed here for 5 nights. The hotel is located within a 10 min walking distance to the Shijo subway station, the nearest exit is No.25. Take the elevator at exit No. 1 if you have luggage, and cross the junction of Shijo-Karasuma, go west along Shijo street. Check in was smooth, staff were friendly and fluent in English speaking.

Currently in this hotel for a one night stay. My Japanese friend booked this hotel for us as it's peak season in Kyoto now and most of the hotels are fully booked. Reached the hotel early so they were unable to check us in. Deposited the bags and came back in the night after a whole day of sightseeing. Check...

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.

“Family mart opposite is very convenient if you need to get groceries and utilities. Get a bus-map from the hotel since the bus-stop is located just outside on the main road. Get a day-pass from the driver if you intend to explore the city.”
