To get there from the Kyoto station - take the bus number 50 from the bus terminal. The bus will bring you almost to the entrance of the hotel. The location couldn't be better- there are buses to most of the attractions mainly temples n shrines. Dun bother to buy the subway n bus pass. Just the day bus pass... More

Convenient location on Sanjo Dori, just behind Karasuma Dori, a couple of subway stops from the rail station). Comfortable room with enormous twin beds, compact bathroom with powerful over bath shower. Reasonably quiet, even with the window open (a rare treat in a modern hotel). Free wifi in room. Vending machines in lift lobby selling soft drinks and beer. Nearby... More

A great hotel that was close to bus stops and only a 20-25 minute walk away from the Gion area. There is a bus that goes from the station and stops right outside the hotel so it is very easy to get to. The rooms are basic and space is limited but it was absolutely fine for us as we... More

There is a grocery store nearby, plus two convenience stores, all within 100 yards of the hotel. A McDonald's is a few blocks, about 10 minutes, away. The room would be small in the US, but is fairly large for Japan. They have the furniture arranged poorly; a person sitting at the desk completely blocks passage to anywhere in the... More

Relatively large room (for being Japan), very clean and good location if you want to be close to an area with lots of shopping opportunities, restaurants and temple areas in the eastern part of Kyoto. Two metro stops from Kyoto main station.

It was a comfortable stay at Shijo, and the hotel is located near to two grocery shop (which sells lots of fruits!) and also near to the station (around 5-8minutes walk). The room was comfortable, clean and well equipped. Very spacious too! (we booked a double room) Onsen lounge is nice, with 5-6 massage chairs FOC to use! There are... More

The Mitsui Garden is not super close to Kyoto station but you can easily take the subway or a $10 taxi ride. The hotel is within walking distance to the main/downtown shopping streets. It is 2 or 3 blocks to the subway and 3 doors away from a grocery store and family mart. The rooms are very clean and more... More

The size and quality of the room was fine, the lobby area and facilities were excellent, but I honestly cannot see the draw of the location, other than having bus stops nearby. It was a long walk to the main shopping area, and a bus was needed to anything of interest. The staff were efficient, friendly and very helpful indeed.... More

The hotel is well positioned, you can get Gion in 15 min by walk, Kyoto station in 20 min by walk (and by bus 10-15 min). It is near to Nijo castle and the central zone where you can find very good restaurant and shopping center. You can reserve a bike to run around the city directly at the hotel... More
