Excellent location, small rooms but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was very good - we love the Japanese food choices. Staff very helpful with directions to sites we wanted to visit and also with luggage forwarding. I would not hesitate to stay here should I visit this region again.

As expected from other reviews rooms were very small but comfortable. The location more than made up for the room size. Being within walking distance ot the Gion and the main shopping avenue was great.

We stayed here 5 five nights. Beds were comfortable, and American Breakfast was the usual. This was the smallest bathroom, though the shower was OK. The neighborhood was very good, convenient to all local sights, shopping and restaurants (especially Italian Rest. Mon Ami).

the only downside was the small bathroom (watch your head and feet on entering)! This hotel appeared popular with both Japanese and foreign visitors. Comfy beds. Very large choice at breakfast buffet--both Japanese and Western. Staff extremely helpful. Kudos go especially to front desk staff for help using the lobby computer to print boarding passes for Japan airlines flight home.... More

Stayed here 5 nights on a tour. Rooms are small but have everything you need. Bathroom is small and shower ceiling is low, which might be a problem for anyone 6 feet or taller. Breakfast is on the tenth floor, and the views are very nice. Both western and Japanese items for breakfast, but the Japanese put sugar in the... More

I needed three nights in Kyoto and only had a little time to make the booking. Various sites listed many properties that were sold out. I found Hotel Sunroute for JPY48,000 for 3 nights. I would class it a as good 3-star establishment. The staff is excellent. The room is quite small, typical for Japanese hotels, the bathroom is also... 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.
