Staff very attentive and friendly. At check-in we were immediately recognized and our bags whisked aside by the bell staff who directed us to the front desk. Rooms were large and well-appointed. Our room had nice views of the city overlooking the Kyoto station. The hotel location is excellent adjacent to the bus depot, train station, and subway. Our room... More

Stayed here only 1 night, unfortunately. Would love to return. Just walk from Shinkansen platform into hotel. Room was excellent with view of Kyoto tower. Ate at buffet restaurant which was superb. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here March 2015 and had no hesitation in staying here again in September 2016. Excellent location and staff still as friendly and helpful as last time. Arrived too early to check in but no trouble in holding luggage while we did some sightseeing. Staff suggested Inari shrine (1000 Tori gates) and gave clear instructions on how to get there-...

Excellent service and room was spacious and included all amenities. Japanese hotels have more in room amenities that american hotels. This hotel is convenient to anything you need, including transportation by train or bus. It is in the actual station.

For our honeymoon/first anniversary combined trip, we went to Japan. Our base was Tokyo, but we spent a couple of days in Kyoto. During that time, we stayed here. What a place. All the staff are so attentive, polite, and courteous. They made an effort to make us feel special because we were celebrating, and even framed a picture they... More

Very clean, great breakfast buffet. Many shops and eateries around the hotel and connected to the station. Note that the small fitness facility with indoor lap pool and treadmills/free weights charges hotel guests for use. Laundry service is fast (same day).

The location of this hotel is excellent for sightseeing. 15 minute train ride to Arashiyama, 11 minute train ride to Fushimi Inari Shrine, and a 15 minute taxi ride to Gion Corner/Downtown Kyoto. It was also the perfect hotel for the typhoon weather we experienced during our stay: Isetan department store with yummy food, underground shopping mall, and so much... More

I was in Japan for about 2 weeks and spent about 5 days in Kyoto. My primary mode of transportation was the train -- extremely convenient since we had booked JR passes to have unlimited use of the trains. We decided to pick this hotel because it is attached to the train station, and that was a great move. We... More

Arrived at the hotel and was given an upgrade to a Junior Suite – thank you very much! The room was big, clean and had everything. Overall the style was a little dated but I really can’t fault it. The bed was super comfortable and during my week at the hotel, I had night after night of great sleep. Location... More

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.
