Excellent hotel with a great, central location in Kyoto! The service was tip top and they helped us with several restaurant recommendations as well as guiding us around the city. The breakfast buffet is quite complete and worth it if you don't want to explore for breakfast. Nice installations as well!

Good hotel, comfortable, quiet and functional room, though nothing fancy. Location is excellent not far from bus stops, walking distance to the river and restaurants. Breakfast is ok but served in the bakery next door.

Excellent ,busy hotel in great central location . Busy hotel used by tour groups which leads to a short q for breakfast...good breakfast though to keep you going , excellent location ,close to many attractions and shops. Don't expect Kyoto to be a total museum, it is a modern city witl many ancient buildings ,neighbourhoods m festivals and traditions

Fab location .... Caught a cab from Kyoto Station for JPY1,300. Showed cabbie the address in Japanese and we were dropped off 10 mins later. 5 mins walk to the Keihan Sanjo station and 10 mins to the City Hall subway. We train-ed it to Fushimi Inari, Kinkaku and Arashiyama. Reception was excellent with helping us figure out the routes.... More

We stayed 4 nights and had 2 rooms, with 3 adults and 2 kids. The hotel is located in an amazing location, with 3 train stations (various lines) within walking distance. Shopping and food choices were endless, which is very convenient as the kids could go back to the hotels while some of the adults did shopping nearby. Staff were... More

​ We enjoyed the location of the hotel, and the lobby was excellently furnished. We didn't use the bar or the restaurant so cannot comment. The room was a little tired (shabby decoration in places). We had to change room, as we were originally put in a room which, while non-smoking, stank of smoke from the smoking room outside. The... More

A 3,000 yen taxi ride from Kyoto Station to this hotel. Sensational location & fabulous hotel. We booked a triple room. Space was tight but we managed to adequately store three large suitcases with ease of movement. Despite being located on a busy street the room was quiet & curtains blocked out the light. Pyjamas & all good toiletries provided.... More

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.
