Though small by comparison, Pontocho is one of Kyoto's most spirited and memorable neighborhoods. A narrow street straddling the Kamogawa River, it is Kyoto's busiest nightlife spot. When darkness falls, Pontocho's many signs and lanterns bolt to life, making the area glow with invitations to passers-by to come inside and pull up a chair. Its restaurants and bars sprawl onto the riverbank, providing a friendly atmosphere and delicious food. Verandas are always filled with people young and old crowding tables, biting into hot yakitori or sipping cold beers. It is a culinary heart of Kyoto as much as one of its most laid-back, clamorous, and entertaining evening hotspots. Pontocho has more of an amiable vibrancy to it than an elegant one, attracting newcomers, local veterans, and everyone in between, in casual attire like sneakers and jeans.

The breakfasts are very good and everyday we have...
Location is perfect for Kyoto and the staff were amazing.... helpful with restaurants and tickets prior to arrival, directions during, anything they could do to help and make our stay perfect.
Smallish dated rooms but everything you need and very clean. You don’t go to Kyoto to hang out in your room... too much to see and eat!
This is a nice little hotel on Kiyamachi right off of Shijo. I stayed here for three nights and found it to be a good base for tourist activities. It has a Familymart convenience store on the first floor and steps to the train and Gion/Ponto-cho. There is no wifi in the room, but there is cable internet if you...
