The hotel is located on a quiet side street and is like a small inn. My room was not big but had a nice balcony. The bathroom was small but that's the Japanese style. The rooms are clean and the staff courteous. They can exchange foreign currency at the front desk. They also have a Japanese breakfast available but you... More

Conveniently located close to the metro station and to lively parts of the city that you would want to visit anyway. Reasonably priced (€75 per night for a couple and a five year old child, for three nights), clean and quiet. On the other hand: really small rooms and even smaller bathrooms that somehow manage to have everything you need.... More

Hotel is nice, room is small but that is to be expected when staying in Japan. Very clean and tidy Location is a little away from the main Kyoto station but only a 2 minute walk to the subway station. so not too much of an issue Close to Golden castle and Imperial palace Free WIFI

I never expect that the room is so small!! when we go out from the room, we can smell the smoking. the smoking come from exit stair. The bed is small and not so comfortable. But the location is great! it is very near subway! the price is reasonable.

We asked for a non-smoking room on the non-smoking floor. They gave us room 405. The moment the room door was opened a crack, an overwhelming smell of cigarettes smoke came rushing out. I went downstairs to ask for a room change. They told me, they can't because they are full. I explained my wife is pregnant and cigarette smoke... More

Great hotel. Stayed here for 11 nights. De service was good, the people were nice and the price was also good. Very close to the centre of the city, a subway station and a 7/11 just around the corner.

The service was top class. We were going out for dinner and the reception gave us umbrellas to borrow in case of rain, sure enough 10 min later it started. The location is 200 m from the intersection of the 2 subways. So if you want to see things along these line it's easy.

Stayed here for 4 nights and couldn't fault much, maybe size of bath towels. Staff very helpful and did well to make sense at my broken attempt at Japanese. Great location and would stay there again if ever in Kyoto. Everything is within 10 to 20 minutes by train. Facilty is non smoking which is a bonus in Japan.

The hotel is very clean, all bed linens and towels are changed every day. The access from Kyoto Station is either using metro or by taxi (taxi cost is about 1200 JPY). The hotel is very close (walking distance) to International Manga Museum and the short distance (two bus stops) to Nija Castle. The free wired Interned and Wi-Fi is... 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.
