Specifically requested for a non-smoking room reservation was made. Arrived at the hotel and check-in as per normal and left luggage with hotel before proceeding to visiting. Nothing was mentioned about the type of room that was given and my bad for assuming that it will be a non-smoking room. Arrived at level 8 only to find out that I...

The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the mainline railway station. We arrived by bullet train and once we'd chosen the correct exit it was easy to find. The staff were welcoming and arranged for somewhere for us to leave our luggage until our room was ready. We hit the nearby shops to buy some emergency clothes (no...

There are multiple APA hotels in Kyoto. This one is closest to the train station. It is clean and functional but the room was very small for the price. $120 didn't include breakfast. The buffet will cost another $15.

This hotel is located right outside Kyoto station so you can anywhere from here. Friendly staff, good breakfast and clean. There are floors for smokers and no smokers so be sure to mention that on your reservation. If your feeling the urge to spend money on electronics there is a huge Bic Camera store as you exit the main door

The hotel is just a short walk from Kyoto main station and in a quiet area. The room and bathroom is small just like most local Japanese business hotel.

Location is ideal, only minutes of walk from the Kyoto station. Lobby is rather dim though. Surprisingly enough this hotel doesn't require a deposit upon checking in. It's the first that I encounter so far. However, this hotel does not allow early check even if they have the room ready. It was about 12pm then and I was informed of...

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighborhood Profile
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.
