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.

Was traveling on my own and stayed the weekend here. Clean, comfortable, rooms at a reasonable price. I rated it 'very good' rather than excellent because it's a small room and this is not a full service hotel. But it was perfect for what I...More

There was a pullout ironing board in my room but no iron - you'll have to ask reception or call housekeeping, and they will send one up to you.

There is a service for luggage delivery called Black Cat. There are other similar services but we used Black Cat. They pick up your luggage and send it to your destination. Very reliable and useful.
