We stayed at this hotel after finding a deal on the internet. It is located about 5min walk from Kyoto Station, with a number of restaurants and convenience stores on the way. The staff spoke basic English and were very polite. They kept our luggage in a locked room until check in time. We were pleasantly surprised by our rooms... More

We loved the location of this hotel, and the staff were really friendly and it was nice and clean etc. however the bed was really narrow which made it uncomfortable, but if it was just one person staying it would be fine! The other thing we didn't like was that there was no safe in the room which we've had... More

Conveniently located less than a 5 minute walk from the Kyoto JR station, which is connected to the Isetan Department Store, Porta Underground Shopping Mall and The Cube Shopping Mall. However, of all the properties that I visited in Japan, this was probably the smallest hotel room I encountered. Not only was the bed size small (full mattress size) for... More

The location seems very great at daytime, but at night you'll hear the trains passing by. The rooms are very small, without enough space for two travelers. The beds and pillows are awefull. The bathroom is very practical, you can do three things at once... The breakfast is pretty good. Some of the front-desk personnel is just rude.

Even by japanese standards and by comparison to other hotels in the range these rooms were very small, thankfully we only had one bad between two people cause we would have struggled to fit two.

It is at 5 minutes walking from Kyoto station, there are also some combini on the same road and there is a cheap looker for the luggages. The hotel it's nice and provides you, with toothbrush, slippers, razors. The room was quite small, but honestly I need a place to wash and sleep.

It is a few minutes walk to the Kyoto station, from there you can get on endless possibilities of trains and buses. There's also lots of restaurants in and below the station too.

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.
