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.

It has a very good location, just next to JR Kyoto, 2 mins walk only. However, when I request to keep my luggage for 2 overnights, extra charge is needed. This is quits rare, especially in Japan. Layout of the room is strange too. Living area is just put in front of the bed.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights as it was booked for us by Gate 1 Travel for our group of 24 people on an 11 day tour of Japan. We moved to the Kyoto Hyatt Regency after this hotel, when our tour was over, and it was like night and day. Our room (486) was so small (think
