5 mins walk to the Kyoto station, close to transportation, close to food, close to everything the onsen/bath + sauna is the best part about this hotel. They have a cold bath, one indoor hot bath and an open-air hot bath. Their open-air bath resembled a real natural one with bamboos and other Japanese elements. They also put on some... More

The hotel is perfectly located, next to the train station and all the buses. Rooms are small but clean and wifi works very well. They provide with free noodles every evening and breakfast is good (a little bit too crowded, but good).

Close to Kyoto station this is a very good choice. Well-appointed rooms with free wi-fi. The beds are very comfortable and as expected very clean. The breakfasts are exceptionally good. Free noodle suppers between 9.00 - 10pm. No English language TV channels though. Would highly recommend.

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

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.

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.

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.
