Stayed here for 2 nights. Enjoyed the hotels complimentary coffee and matcha latte. A perfect warm cup as you walk towards Shijo station which is just 3 blocks away. Too bad they stop serving it at 8pm. Also appreciated the extra toilettries in the lobby. Venture out of the hotel and there is a nice 24 hours japanese restaurant nearby.... More

Shijo subway station is one stop from Kyoto station, and Hotel MyStays is only about 3 blocks away. It's also a short walk to the Hankyu train line which is an excellent way to travel to Osaka. First thing you'll notice is that you have to take an elevator to the second floor of the hotel for the lobby, which... More

Very comfortable room with good service and very helpful staff. The hotel is a short walk from Shijo station and has bus stops just outside. Tip - get a one day/two day bus and subway pass to get around with and all Kyoto is at your feet. If you crave a change of food there is a great little Thai... More

We stayed in 6 different hotels during our trip in Jan 2015. And this is the best hotel in terms of service, very friendly and helpful staff and the rooms were surprisingly big for the price we paid for. It was only 5000yen per night for two pax, it was even bigger than the hotels in Tokyo which we paid... More

A short walk from Shijo station, this hotel is really easy to find, right on the main street. Since the bus system is the way to travel the fact the bus stop is practically right outside the hotel and many buses bound all over the city stop there it's a fantastic base to explore Kyoto.

Pros This place provided the best price I could find that located near to a convenient subway station. It's on the busiest road of Kyoto so it's enjoyable enough to walk from Gion to the hotel (and hop on the bus en route when getting tired). Staffs are polite and welcoming. They were quick to my request via booking.com. Cons... More
