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.

The hotel is in a good location, near the station (but not inside the station). Hotel style is really good, from the hall to the rooms. The rooms are nice with an incredible wooden bath tube. Staff helpful and nice. Good Italian restaurant.

A fantastic find! The hotel website does no justice to the very large rooms that are decorated japanese style with tatami floors but with all western amenities. Each room entrance is unique with a porch/ foyer that is replicated to look like the entrance of a ryokan (japanese
