This place has crazy prices! My friend and I stayed there for four nights, paying so little money that i was expecting the worst.... The hotel instead is clean, well positioned within walking distance from the downtown area and close to bus stops to go anywhere you like. The room was tidy, clean and had everything you need: tea set,... More

Located just a couple hundred feat from the nearest bus stop, this hotel was very easy to reach. I was a little daunted by the negative reviews but my experience was wonderful. This was the cheapest room I stayed in during my entire trip to Japan.

I booked this hotel on agoda.com, I've been using them for every time I come to Japan. Its my first time actually staying in Kyoto. I'm currently writing this review as I'm in the hotel, about to leave for Tokyo. I booked a twin room for my boyfriend and I because of the price. As we entered the hotel, people... More

20 mins from Kiyomizu/Gion area by walk. Hotel facilities are little bit old, but the cost performance is good.

I will say, I was happy with this hotel for the price I paid. It's not a luxury hotel by any means, but it's neat and practical and served my purpose. Location is ok, everything is well connected by public transport. Free wifi and can be accessed in each room, not just the lobby which I've found elsewhere. Rooms and... More

Stayed here due to its proximity to office I was working from. The property seems to be popular with Asian group travellers. Single room was clean and typical small size and layout for a business hotel but room was a bit dark and dated in decor. Unit bathroom. There are convenience stores nearby as well as a small supermarket. OK... More

The staff were ok although spoke very little english. Breakfast could be purchased although I didn't check it out. It was quiet and clean.... More

It is indeed value for money. Great location, about 200m to Kiyomizu Gojo Keihan station; we reach this station from Nara , without having to go to Kyoto staion. There is a bus stop across the road with buses to Kyoto station;on the same side of the road is Kawaramachi Gojo bus stop, buses from Kyoto station pass by here;... 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.
