    the room is really tiny. step in, and you have to get onto bed. toilet is inlaid and SMALL. but the price's ecnomical. in Kyoto you can travel almost anywhere using public transport, conviniently starting from the station. by bus, metro, or JR and Kintetsu train. there are 3 APAs near the station, this one is comparatively the farthest, an...

    Very near to the Kyoto Jr stations, there are two APA hotel near the stations the Horikawadori is a bit further only roughly 7-10 minutes walk from the station. They have a free onsen also. The rooms were a bit outdated and the mattress very a bit hard. Overall a good place to stay if you wanted to stay for... More

    If you travel to Japan and are looking at hotels pay close attention to the room measurement details provided by each hotel. In this country, and to a lesser extent in Korea, this information is important. (I will be repeating this in quite a few of our reviews). The APA room here was small. It was fine for us as... More

    It was last day for us to live in Japan & decided to have sightseeing in Kyoto. So this was nearest hotel to station & for sightseeing as well. breakfast is good as you have some option, but not Veg available. Neat clean & tidy But space constraint is the quality of APA hotel.

    I knew coming into this hotel that the rooms were going to be Japanese sized; however, I did not realize that I may have had more space in a capsule hotel. The room was dirty, and the bathroom was modular in a particularly awful shade of "old yellow." Furthermore, the walls couldn't be thicker than cardboard as I could hear... More

    A 4/5 minute walk from train station, very handy and pretty much in the middle of town or just off enough for a good sleep. As the rest of Japan and South Korea the rooms are tiny very few exceptions (and plenty of $) though very clean and comfortable. Good thing here is location, shopping, trains and buses great access... More

    Hardly enough room to open my suitcase. Pillow was very flat, but bed was comfortable. Bathroom was pretty small but sufficient. Price (approx. 11,000yen per night for two person) was good considering that breakfast was included. Food was very average though. Quite close to the Kyoto station, which helps as we go visiting other landmarks. Amenities are sufficient.

    The room was the size of a postage stamp, the tv appeared bigger than the bed (which was meant to be a double) and would probably have been comfier too. I would have slept on the floor had there been space as the bed was like sleeping on concrete. The room wasn't particularly clean, dirt around light switches etc. and... More

    The location of the hotel is fabulous, right next to the train station. That is the only positive thing about this hotel! We had to take a smoking room, as all was fully booked. The room was absolutely aweful & filthy. The curtains & walls were stained, the airconditioner was majorly dusty & the heater on the floor had never... More

    The location is good. Only about 6mins walk to JR Kyoto station. Booked a semi-double and its small (need to close the luggage to walk around) but it is clean and the location more than make up for it since we did not spend much time in the hotel. The bedding is clean & firm, thus I had good sleep... 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.
