Kyoto tower was a lovely Japan hotel. The size of the rooms are the same as other hotels in Japan-small but well organized with everything you need. This is super close to the Kyoto train station, which is a huge plus! We loved walking around the area but it was a great central area to explore Kyotoe.

Kyoto tower hotel in itself is nothing special - except maybe that it is right underneath the Kyoto Tower - but it is a perfectly decent way to spend your nights. If you plan for an active holiday: most days outside and your hotel room is mostly a place to crash into a bed then this is a great hotel... More

Could not have chosen a better location to start our visit to this city. Hotel was very quiet and very clean. Very good choice for breakfast. Right next to station. A must visit to the top of the tower fantastic view. Very good gift shops at the bottom of the tower. Search for best price.

The hotel is opposite the Kyoto train station and bus stop so it's convenient for travel into Kyoto downtown area. The hotel was clean and functional, but a bit tired-looking inside. Restaurants aren't too numerous nearby but there are plenty in and around the train station.

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.

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.
