When you find difficulty in finding accomodation in downtown Kyoto during the high season, this hotel is a good alternative as it is in front of JR Yamashina station , one station east from Kyoto. There are so many eatingplaces around and a supermarket, convenience stores and even a smaller scale of Department store neaby.There is a free public bath... More

We booked this hotel as most of the hotels in Kyoto were full or were extremely expensive (it was the Hanami season). At first I was disappointed to be outside of Kyoto but realized that the railway system in Japan is very well organized and easy access so going to the hotel was not a pain at all. The hotel...

My fiance and I booked this hotel mainly for its pricing, especially after considering how hotel rates in Kyoto can be ludicrously high during the autumn season. However, coming up from Brighton City Kitahama in Osaka, we found Brighton City Yamashina older and less modern. In terms of room amenities, it was lacking a safe for valuables safekeeping, and wi-fi... More

I stayed a single night in this hotel while I was in transit to a work conference. I arrived an hour after my requested check-in time (and quite late at night) but was still greeted by friendly and attentive staff. For a single room, I felt that room was very spacious and the price was extremely reasonable. It was very... More

Everything was fully booked in Kyoto when we decided to go there. We found this location at a fare price and 10-20 minutes distance by train to Kyoto Central Station, connection by subway also available. They could not promise a non-smoking room, but, upon arrival, they solved this request and we got a clean and odourless room. The front desk... More

After travelling for 10 hours it was a wonderful relief to arrive at this hotel in Kyoto. The reception staff were professional, friendly and ensured that you had everything that you needed. The rooms are nicely decorated and have large windows to provide a view over some part of Kyoto. Given it was only 5 degrees or less the heating... More

The front desk staff were most helpful and friendly during our 8 day stay. The restaurant staff were very efficient and the food was amazing. My daughter and I felt very well cared for during our stay. (lest I forget, the housekeeping staff were excellent!)

Brilliant business class hotel. Good rooms and buffet breakfast at reasonable price. Free LAN computer connection available in the rooms. Very convenient for Kyoto and surroundings as there are literally trains every few minutes from the station until late at night - journey about 5mins to Kyoto JR stn. Hotel is located 50m from station exit yet is very quiet... 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.
