I enjoyed my stay in Urban Hotel. The room was small, but clean and cosy! The train station was only a 5 min walk from the hotel and convenience stores were located on the same street. Super close to the train station which made travelling to the sights convenient. The wifi did not work when we first arrived but when... More

We stayed here 3 nights as part of a two week motorcycle tour around central Japan. The hotel was very good for the purpose . Good facilities and very friendly and helpful staff. They allowed me to park my bike right outside the main door which was great . Good facilities and breakfast also was good enough . Room was... More

Our third stay in this hotel and the staff were as welcoming as always. There was some building work going on during our stay, which we were made aware of when we arrived, but we were not disturbed by this at all. We also tried out the continental-style breakfast on this visit, which consisted of some toast (half a doorstep... More

The rooms are very clean in this hotel, you have everything you need, microwave, coffee maker, tv. Too bad that the hotel is two train stations away from Kyoto Station but if you are looking for a good and not too expensive hotel this is the right place.

Although this hotel has excellent access to Fushimi Inari Shrine (currently ranked #1 activity in Kyoto), there are so many other sites to see, and they are quite a bit farther. The walk to Fushimi Inari is about 12 minutes. There is a subway station there as well, and for 140 yen, you can get to Kyoto Station in 5... More

This room is very small... Like only a walkway between the bed and the desk. We only needed it for a place to sleep, so it worked great for us. It is right near the fushimi inari shrine, but fairly fast from other sites, so plan on taking the train. The walk from the train station is probably 10-15 mins.... More

For 70 euros a night you expect much more. I'm not talking about the size because it's standard Japanese size (room and semi double bed which they call small double bed 1m20). The reception and hotel outside look nice but the rooms need a renovation ASAP...air condition didn't work and if we opened the window (which for us was already... More

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighborhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
