City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights as part of G Adventure guided Japan Express tour. The location was perfect as 3 minutes walk from a main subway station. Also 5 minutes walk to down town city centre with massive number of shops, stores, cafes and restaurants.

This hotel seemed quite promising as conveniently placed, friendly check in and relatively new and clean. When we got to our room it was very small but that is not unusual in Japan. However they advertise a soft bed, whereas in fact it was the hardest bed I have experienced in
