The Super Hotel Kyoto Shijo Kawaramachi
is located smack in the middle of everything!
An asset considering how much you’ll be walking in a city like Kyoto. This modern budget hotel rises way above the word “budget” in every aspect. Clean, safe and comfortable with provisions for pajamas and a wall of pillows for your perusal. There is also an Onsen, Japanese bath, within the hotel catering to both male & female at different times…complimentary of course! Breakfast was plenty & adequate. Staff quality a level on it’s own!!! The rooms are small but the considerations are 100%. Apart from bath gel & shampoo, there’s even a mini bar, bedroom slippers & complimentary green tea sachets and kettle! At this price, you’ll not be dissappointed!

My family spent 4 nights here and felt really good. If you want room not to be cleaned, do remember tell the check-in staff before 10 in the morning. All beverages are serviced during breakfast so enjoy yourself though you have rare choice. By the way, they can say very good English. A tiny room but with good location.

I have membership at Toyoko Inn, but the in-house hotspring was the deal breaker for me. They do not seem to have twin rooms at this branch but there are rooms that sleep two people and three people at a squeeze. (Bearing in mind that this is Japan, a single room in a business hotel will be just large enough for you to walk across in two strides.) Do not expect a view from your room.

If you can read Japanese, get on their Japanese website and book the special offers available there. Weekends are busier than weekdays and there tend to be queues for breakfast and the hotspring bath on weekends. Other reviewers already mentioned that thing about the pillows.

Breakfast selection is decent and has freshly baked bread, salad, soup and cooked food that changes from day to day. (That's not pain au chocolat--that's red bean paste in your pastry.) Internet is available if you camp in the lobby or have your own netbook in your room.

The hotel is within walking distance of Nishiki Market, Teramachi, Pontocho, the riverside and Gion. Transport links are excellent as the hotel is near Kawaramachi Station and the bus stops outside allowed me to visit other attractions.

This is a decent no frills hotel. Most guests I saw during my 4 nights stay are Japanese. So I think the Super Hotel chain is popular among the locals. I booked through the Super Hotels main website. It seems they offer better rates. Don't worry, they have English option on the website.

One thing to note is: I did try other booking websites to book, but they indicate no more rooms available on my dates. However, when I went straight to the hotel website, there are still rooms available. Thus, I have this feeling they allocate only certain number of rooms to middleman websites, then keep the rest of the rooms for guests who went directly to them (at better rates too).

Yes, the pillows are lengendary hard. I am used to hard pillows, but this is not just hard, they are stuffed with plastic beads. So really need to get the normal pillows from reception fast. We stayed 4 nights, to we held on dearly to our pillows lol.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. They also allowed us to keep our luggage in a locked storeroom when we check out, but too early for our flight.

The best thing of this hotel will be the location. Just the location itself, I will forget any negative aspects of this hotel. It is smacked right between the modern and traditional Kyoto. On one side, I get all the giant shopping malls like Takashimaya and Daimaru. On the other side, I get Gion and all the traditional houses and geishas.

Will reccommend and definitely stay again!

Not that much wrong with this hotel, just don't expect
1) a room with character (walls are all empty, no atmosphere at all)
2) a relaxed breakfast (no cosy tables available, tables are lined up, everyone just sits in straight a row, breakfast-quality is reasonable though)
3) a comfortable pillow (if you don't want to sleep on a rock hard pillow, be sure to arrive before 7 pm (the pillow-cupboard at the reception is probably empty if you arrive later, i just don't get this pillow-policy of this hotel).
On the plus-side: it's hard to beat the location of this hotel and the onsen is a nice plus!

I have visited Japan several times and I have been stayed in different type of hotels.This time I decided to reserve the super hotel Kyoto Shijo kawaramachi.
Hotel Breakfast was good and I have enjoyed the salad and fresh bread most mornings. I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. Everything exceeded expectations for my stay, the service, the staff , the hot spring and excellent location. I'm sure will stay here again on my next trip to Kyoto.
