I stayed at Kyoto Central Inn for three nights and the experience was all positive. For a single traveller, my room was big enough. The bathroom was clean, so was the bed. A great plus for travelers is the possibility to use the laundry at anytime of the day for free. All staff I dealt with were very friendly and... More

nice and close to the Gion District, the intersection is frequented by buses going to various tourist destinations (just use google maps) The nearest train station is on a private line so if you're arriving from Kyoto Station you'll need the transfer ticket. I'd recommend just getting a taxi for 1000 Yen, please save yourself the trouble, unless you're solo... More

Dated rooms but spotlessly clean and comfortable enough for a stay in Kyoto. Fantastic location right near Takashimaya department store and right on the main shopping street of Shijo-Kawaramachi. Very friendly and helpful staff make this hotel a great place to stay as a cheaper option in Kyoto but in the best location. Recommended

The hotel is well located in the heart of kyoto, just next to the main streets and the river. The room was a bit small, but thats very typical of Japan. facilities were neat and clean. One could availa breakfast at a neraby cafe ( paid), and that was good. Overall, recommended.
