It is my first time staying in a Japanese style bedroom. I must say, it is comfortable even though we were sleeping on the floor. There is a shared Japanese bathroom where all women take shower together. There is even a bathtub where i understand...More
Nihonkan is very strict with its rules and regulations. This did not serve well for me as I had a Skype meeting and wanted a decent space (or even a corner to do it). The curfew aside, you cannot even be at the lobby area...More
Stayed here for 2 nights in a room with private facilities. Had not experienced anything like this before and only knew roughly what to expect from other reviewers. It was a little bit of an eye opener removing shoes at the front door, sleeping on...More
My family and I stayed and visited Kyoto for one day. The hotel owners speak limited English however were extremely helpful.
Sleeping on the Japanese hardwood floors wasn't too bad. The hotel provides everything you may need from travel adapters to toothbrushes and toothpaste. In...More

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.

This place is a ryokan, not a hotel with all facilities you might be looking for. The place and rooms are comfortable but in a traditional Japanese style so it might not be appropriate for senior adults. It's a three storey building counting the basement where shower facilities are. The top floor is also available for guests.
