I spent 5 night in this hotel and I must say that it was really the right choice. Located near the central station of Kyoto his position is really very comfortable and strategic. This hotel is very impressive for his size although, amazing lampshade in the big hall, but it keeps still the feeling to be in a family hotel,... More

We stayed here 2 nights. The travel agent chosed it for us, turned out it is a nice4-star hotel and it is just 5 minutes walk to Kyoto Station to many restaurants, and shoppings. And the price was reasonable. The hotel is clearly a four star hotel with large, clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff. We found the breakfast was... More

Firstly, this hotel is in an excellent location. It is a 100m walk from Kyoto Station and this is important as there are properties quite a way from the station and you really need to be near it to reach most tourist destinations ( or pay a reasonably high taxi fare ). When we were first given our rooms they... More

We were in Kyoto for 4 nights. During our stay at Kyoto Century Hotel, they were doing construction in the hotel - they did keep the construction time during the day..so we only had to deal with the noise when we were back at the room, giving our tired feet a break. I don't think anyone is ever thrilled when... More

We stayed here four nights. I chose it because it is very close to the station and the price was very good. The hotel is clearly a four star hotel with large, clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff. We did not have breakfast. The only drawback is that the rooms facing the tracks are very noisy. The trains start at... More

The best part of this hotel is the location - virtually at the train station! The staff were friendly and the room was quite spacious and well appointed. We enjoyed our stay. It was quite a convenient location to find your way around the city. Recommend a trip to Hiroshima while visiting. An easy day trip & well worth it.

We stayed 6 nights in Kyoto and stayed for the first 3 in this hotel due to its location close to the train station (one minute by foot from the main entrance) for our day-trips (Nara, Osaka, Himeji). It was a very good choice. The price was low for the location and the staff really wants to help. (some of... More

It was quite a hilarious rainy noon when we arrived at JR Kyoto Station--because we had a hard time locating the hotel when it's actually just sitting behind us. Anyhow, when we finally set foot on the grounds of this classy hotel, we were instantly awed by the refined manners of all the hotel staff. From the door to the... 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.
