A really clean room, quiet if a bit small (but that is typical in Japan) Pleasant staff who are very helpful. McDonalds is a short walk, as is a "7-11" type store. About 3 blocks from the centre of Kyoto. Breakfast worth the 500Yen.

This was our second time in Kyoto and we stayed also for the second time at this Citadines. The hotel is right next to a metro station, a Yayoiken restaurant, a Coco Ichibanya restaurant and a seven eleven store. Kyoto station is just a station away and for this Gion Matsuri, we were at walking distance from Shijo Dori, the... More

We are a family of three (2 adults one child aged 7) and booked a studio double for 4 nights. The room is perfect for our stay. Our girl loved the sofa bed and the double bed is of good size when compared to the one we had in Osaka. It is convenient to have a kitchenette so we could... More

Very Positive experience here, the place was located 2 minutes from Gojo Station with great food options nearby (Yoshinoya, McDonalds), 7-11 across the road. Free wifi. The rooms had a small pantry with an electric stove to cook your meals. Cutlery and cups/ glasses were provided. Rooms were a little bit small however the beds were very comfortable and there...

It is a comfortable and convenient hotel. With a small kitchen in the room and a 24-hour supermarket nearby, we can make our meals easily. But it will be better if there are plates and bowls in the small kitchen.

nice hotel and in a good location, if you would like to visit city just take one of city buses from station 200 m far away, also subway is close to but in Kyoto, it is better to take bus. Hotel staff is helpful, you can get good recommendations. Breakfast is average according to Japan standards.

I selected this hotel for two reason - the first is that I spent two months living in the Citadines in Frankfurt, Germany in 2014 and had a positive experience and the second is that this place offers washers and dryers. This place didn't disappoint. I was traveling for nearly three weeks with my wife and kids (9yo & 13yo)... More

Loved to be there. They managed to keep the high standards set by Citadines. The cleaning staff did a wonderful job and the room was spic and span. There was no view from the room as it faced a wall but did not mind it as it was peaceful. Some rooms face the road, no idea whether the traffic noise... 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.
