Decided to book this hotel as most hotels are very expensive during the golden week in Japan. Hence, thought of giving trying this as photo on website looks appealing and price is good for a family of 4. However, to my disappointment, the check in time is 4pm and check out time is 10 am. The room is very simple... More

This is the second time that I stayed at this hotel and it remains clean and consistent. My wife and I were in Kyoto for only 3 days and were out seeing the sites most of the time so we needed a clean place within our budget. Hotel Sugicho fits the bill nicely. We had our own bathroom, extra futons... More

The location is great - 5 mins walk to Shiyakusho-mae station and 10 mins walk to Karasuma-Oike station. Nearby to the shopping street of the Shijo & Nishiki market. The room is very clean and comfortable. The only setback is that we have to prepare our own futons when we turn in every night. It is quite tiring when you... More

Was lucky to book the special-deal japanese room for 4 nights. Since it was a discounted room, it came with no amenities and you had to lay out the futon yourself at night. The room was basic but very spacious and clean, with a homely feel to it. The hotel is located in a residential area and is quiet despite... More

The location is perfect as it's set in the best dining area if you ask us. We had little choice during cherry blossom season and therefore paid a lot of money to stay here which you don't want to think about given the OK-ish quality of the room. Breakfast is Japanese. As we'd only just arrived in Japan it took... More

This was not our first choice of hotel but as it was the middle of cherry blossom season we had few choices. This hotel DESPERATELY needs a facelift. Our room was large enough for the four of us but the interior was dismal. Scratched furniture, peeling wallpaper, broken lights, scuffed walls, the window did not property fit the frame and... More

Hotel Sugicho is a very good place to stay during cherry blossom. It is located near the Higashiyama District on one hand and the Imperial Palace on the other. Subway station with connection to JR lines and other parts of Kyoto is within walking distance. The hotel staff is very heplful and fluent in English. Rooms are very clean and... More

It was difficult to find an affordable accomodation in Kyoto but lucky enough that there was an available room in hotel sugicho. Our room was spacious, comfy and complete with ammenities. Its accessible, 8-10min walk from the station. Just to note that the receptionists are not that well verse in english so there are some miscommunication at times but nonetheless... More

You can walk here from the station stop: Karasuma Oike. It's a much nicer place to be, on a quiet street, rather than right next to the station like some of the western style hotels. It's more affordable than most ryokans. If you book with the hotel, they give you the breakfast option. We had a Japanese style breakfast everyday,... More

Kyoto is often all booked up, but we found this hotel. Phew! Our Japanese friend wrote the address for our taxi driver. When I said that it's not close to Kyoto Station, she said "Who wants to stay there?" Our room is spacious and lovely, with tatami floors and futons. The wi-fi is good. Breakfast is more than expected with... More

Staying in City Center

Neighborhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
