We were on the 14th floor and had a lovely view over the city to the mountains which was a bonus. A slight negative of being so high is that... More

This hotel was a great value and was located in a good part of town. We were short subway or bus ride from the main train station and right in the middle of the city for good access to the sites that are spread out throughout Kyoto. The staff was very helpful and spoke good English. The room was very... More

Staff didn't speak English to well. Had trouble asking them where I could get tickets to the spring geisha show. But we eventually got it. We got there early so they took our luggage for us and they were waiting in our room when we got back. Which was nice. Location is within walking distance to Nishiki Market and Gion.... More

Me and my family stayed here for 5 nights during our stay in Kyoto. The staff were friendly, polite and very willing to help us make bookings for restaurants etc due to the language barrier.

Staying in City Center

Neighborhood Profile
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.
