Neighborhood
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.

This is NOT at all the experience I had hoped. It’s a simple hotel with bad pillows. It is not pretty and the noise of the cars driving is too loud. The rooms are ok but we had nothing to eat since we have allergies and they were not able to help us in any way. Ignore your

I was looking for a Ryokan to stay in, with very good reviews and in a central location. I received very warm hospitality from the moment I walked in. Yuka-san and the team made me feel very welcome. The rooms are well appointed and heated well. I enjoyed dinner on the Friday

Loved the room and community bath. You get a tea and snack on the visit. The staff is very friendly and courteous; they guided me on how to catch the right bus to Kansai airport. For an India it is a bit expensive otherwise would love to stay again.

It is near city centre with free car parking space. The hot spring is quite comfort and classic. However, it is deteriorating. Beside, the breakfast is yummy. It is a traditional set including miso soup, rice and with different types of tofu. Yet, the whole hotel is a bit old.
