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

優點 / Advantage : 1. 位於京都中心,附近有四通八達的巴士和地鐵,到哪邊去都很方便。附近就有商店街、百貨公司,以及京都的廚房:錦市場 就在這邊。 Located at in central Kyoto. There's bus and subway to anywhere conveniently. Besides, shopping street, department stores are nearby. And most important: Gion, and "The kitchen of Kyoto" - Nishiki Ichiba is quite near. 2. 五分鐘左右就可以到地鐵站、公車站。 It only takes 5mins to subway, bus station. 3. 京都的飯店都有點貴,以這間的位置來說,算是很平價的選擇。 Hotels are expensive in Kyoto. But, based... More

The Super Hotel Kyoto Shijo Kawaramachi is located smack in the middle of everything! An asset considering how much you’ll be walking in a city like Kyoto. This modern budget hotel rises way above the word “budget” in every aspect. Clean, safe and comfortable with provisions for pajamas and a wall of pillows for your perusal. There is also an... More
