The hotel is located at the 'heart' of Shijokawaramachi. You can easy to find places for food or malls for shopping nearby. I chose the double room (with a sofa bed) which could supposedly accommodate at most for 3 people. I just can't imagine how 3 adults can fit in the room esp with one has large luggage. Due to...

I was on honeymoon with my wife when visiting Kyoto and this was an affordable hotel in a good location in Kyoto. The toilet was an all singing/dancing/spraying japanese special which provided me with much amusement. I also enjoyed the fact that they didn't give you a bedside lamp but a bedside torch. The staff were friendly but breakfast time... More

We planned our trip to Japan 6 months in advance but it was already quite tough to find a hotel in Kyoto... We decided to stay at this hotel due to the good location, although it was very hard to find it! We got lost near the Nishiki Market and walked around for maybe 30min before finally getting there!

The receptionists can speak fluent English. The spring spa is a must try experience in this hotel. You must get up before 9 to enjoy delicious breakfast. Be careful the room is so small.

The price is affordable and more than reasonable during this high season. The hotel price goes up ridiculously high during autumn and spring high season. What's more, the quality is quite good. My favorite is their onsen, hot spring. That was really helpful after walking around Kyoto the entire day to see fall leaves. The location of the hotel is... More

I stayed in transit to some work in Shizuoka city. Though tucked away behind the mains streets, it is relatively easy to get to by bus from the Kyoto central train station. It is worth noting that this is part of a large chain of hotels in Japan, all of which are virtually identical. There is a very secure entry... More

When we arrived in Kyoto by Shinkansen we had a lot of trouble finding this hotel. It took us almost two hours, but finally we arrived. This is one element in which I think the hotel could improve upon: provide clearer maps on how to reach the hotel from the train station in Kyoto. Besides that our stay was pretty... More

Stayed several times at the hotel in past few years. Location is good, rooms are small but that is common for Japan, and a decent breakfast. On the recent trip, the room was dirty. The bathroom door and air vent were filthy with grime and dust. Obviously had not been cleaned for a long time. Makes one wonders what else... More

It just doesn't get more depressing than the Super Hotel Kyoto Shijokawaramachi. You know how some hotels leave you a disposable razor? This place should give you an unlit oven and a noose. The room is literally less than five feet bigger than the bed, with maybe a foot between the bed and the cheap, half-sized vinyl couch. The desk... More

Staying in Shinkyogoku Shopping District

Neighborhood Profile
Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.
