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

Hotel is right above Hankyu Railway lines with direct trains to Osaka or Arashiyama and had Loads of bus stops near it. It s also directly opposite Takashimaya and loads of other shops and covered walking streets near it. For people who like Starbucks, its on the GF of the hotel. Taking a taxi from Kyoto station would be the... More

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.

We recently stayed at the Kyoto Central Inn. The location was great with plenty of shopping, restaurants, etc. nearby. The price was right for budget conscious travelers. The staff was very professional, helpful, friendly, and spoke English well enough so that we could communicate with them. Our room was small, but clean. We also had a small refrigerator and hot...
