Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.

Stay here for 4 nights.. room is pretty spacious, but lack of hangers in room which we cannot understand why they never provide since there are so much space in the room. Location is great - Lawson is just downstairs, next building is Avanti Shopping Center where there is a Don

Location was really good - very close to Kyoto train station and bus terminal so it was convenient for day trips outside Kyoto (the Nara Deer Park for example). Managed to see many locations in and around Kyoto without having to catch public transport as most were within walking

I spent 2 nights in this no-frills hotel during my visit to Kyoto. This hotel is located near JR Kyoto Station (about 5 minutes walk). The single room I stayed in was reasonably sized for Japanese standards, and a small bathtub is provided in the room. There are additional

Hello Kitonium, Thank you for choosing our hotel, and for taking the time to write a review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your accommodations. Regarding your comment on our complimentary amenities, we do have a few amenities that are for gentlemen too. And we try to keep them fully stocked anytime, but sometimes it gets busy so that we do not have a second to refill them when it's empty. Please do not hesitate to ask us at the front desk when that happens next time you come back. We will do that right away. Thank you very much again for the time you took to write this amazing review. We look forward to having you back! Reception Hiroki Mukai

We enjoyed being 300 meters from Kyoto trains and buses. Had convenience and department stores, coffee shops, restaurants and all sorts of activity around. Staff were very helpful and polite. However, the room was too small for luggage or comfort and there was no view and hardly

If I remember correctly the check in time is 2pm or 3pm. The friendly front desk staff kept our luggage before check-in and after check-out.

Which exit we should take from the Kyoto Train Station ?
Assuming you arrive by train. Look for Hachijo exit or South Exit. Take escalator or lift to the ground level. U will see kyoto tower at the north exit (dont go there). Go out the train station at the opposite direction ie south exit. Turn left. After turning left, walk straight for abt 100m, you will see a traffic junction. Cross the junction to opposite the train station. You will Hotel Keihan Kyoto Grande. Sotetsu is just behind Hotel Keihan Kyoto Grande. If you are coming from Osaka Itami, u may take the airport limo bus which stops right in front of Hotel Keihan Kyoto Grande.

"Just book early enough!"
"I don't think it mattered as it was very quiet. By the time we got back we were so tired we just soaked in the bath and went to bed."
