What reviewers say is true. One great thing is hotel access to 24 hour convenience store. Need bottled drinks, sushi, musubi, breakfast food, instant coffee.....find it there. One more thing would be the microwave for use near the bottled drink machine and ice machine on our float.

The hotel is less than a 5-min walk from Kyoto station with its JR and subway connections. This makes it very handy since most of the attractions are scattered across the city and its outskirts. The people at the reception speak very good english and they are very welcoming and polite. The room (double) was rather small but it was... More

i cant recommend this hotel enough. Even though the hotel was just diagonally across kyoto station, we almost missed the hotel as it was snowing. But once you know where it is, all is good. Hotel was lovely and check-in was smooth. Since were were there before the check-in time, they even allowed me to keep my shopping bags seperately... More

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night but wished it was longer. The room itself was a good size. It was also very clean and very modern. The aircon worked well. This hotel also has its own onsen that all their customers can use which is open overnight which is such a bonus when you've been out sightseeing all... More

Very good location, neat interior, a quite nice spa, and a rather large room makes this hotel a premium "business hotel". If you're back by 11pm, free ramen is served at the cafeteria so check it out.

Stayed 3 nights. Located very near to Kyoto train station and bus terminal. There's a Lawson beside the hotel. Coming out of central exit of Kyoto train station you will see Cerema building on the right. Dormy Inn is diagionally opposite. 5mins walk only. I went to the onsen all 3 nights so I did not use the bathroom in... More

I had stayed at another Dormy Inn in other city so I had great expectation for Dormy Inn Premium Kyoto Ekimae. The hotel is close to Kyoto station yet it situates at a quieter part of the street. 6 of us were staying at 3 rooms (1 twin room, 2 double rooms). The twin room is relatively spacious that the...

Stayed only one night here, but Dormy Inn would be a good place to base yourself while in Kyoto. Great location, easy walk to the train station and to take buses. Free ramen supper was welcome, and breakfast spread was quite impressive. Room is small but has everything that you will need.

Onsen here is the best thing I like. I went to there after walking entire day and it absolutely recover my tireness. So so good, especially the outdoor onsen. The room is not so spacious but acceptable. Location is great too. From station, just turn right and walk along the street then you will find the hotel about 5 min.... More

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighborhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
