The location is good, just across the street from the train station. It's also easy to find because of the tower on top of it. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was friendly.

Stayed in a room with two beds. Room was surprisingly spacious compared to other places I've stayed in Japan, with lots of electric sockets. Really close to Kyoto Station and Kyoto Yodobashi. Kyoto Tower is right above the hotel, and you can buy souvenirs at the neighboring store. Everything works well, especially the hot water after a long day of... More

I came here in good spirits in the hopes that I would also experience what other tripadvisor reviewers were getting. I already had low expectations due to other reviewers of the room. However this was the only reason why I paid a premium on Saturday night to stay here - more than other similar 3 star hotels. I made sure... More

We stayed here for three nights in november 2014. The room was quite small but everything you need was in it and compared to the Japanese we are a sort of giants so we were not shocked by the size of the room. We received tickets to visit the tower on top for free which was very nice. The hotel... More

Stayed for five nights on no business trip. Room was very small, as Japanese hotels often are but clean and comfortable. Very central location in city and directly opposite the main rail station. Easy access to shopping and restaurant areas. Have a cocktail in the tower bar, rather overpriced but spectacular views.

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.
