I've stayed at Shogoin Gotenso many times since 2004 and I don't ever want to stay anywhere else in Kyoto. The service is top quality and the room are in the traditional style. Do not fear! The futons are one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on. In fact, I almost purchased one to bring back to the... More

I have stayed here three times and absouletly loved it every time. Staff is fantastic. Rooms are traditional Japanese with futon matresses for beds. Staying here really gives you a great taste of Japanese culture. Outstanding food. Beautiful gardens. Stay at this hotel. You will not regret it.. I assure you !!

Staying in City Center

Neighborhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
