Buses to all attractions are within steps of the hotel. They will provide you a bus list so no need to do research before the trip. Room cleaned everyday. New tooth brush, razor and towel supplied everyday. Room is of good size in this price range.

This hotel is close to three subway stations and in walking distance from the Gion main street. And room interior was good enough for the room rate. Also the hotel breakfast was delicious although there were various food items. Hotel staffs were so kind and helpful. I can recommend this hotel.

Court Hotel Shijo made our four days in Kyoto just comfortable and relaxed. We asked for a room with a window and got a corner room with two large windows on two sides of the room. We overlooked trees of the neighbourhood, a quiet and calm scenery. Just what Kyoto is loved for. The rooms has all Japanese amenities, the... More

Locating this hotel took a bit of challenge since it is situated at the side of the main Shijo road. You will first be greeted by the Family Mart which is just opposite the hotel before you can actually find the inconspicuous hotel entrance. The hotel which is 10 min away from Karasuma & Shijo subway stations is a bit... More

We weren't expecting luxury but neither were we expecting this. The Hotel building... More

Good hotel and I disagree with many of the reviews about lack of english and no wifi. The hotel has obviously paid attention to trip advisor as they have wifi and the front desk offered good help in basic english. Washing facilities are easy to use. Very handy to ATM machine, bus stops for all the sites of Kyoto. Good... More
