This hotel is clean, not fuss and has great facilities. Check-in and check-out were both seamless, the room cleaning impeccable and the location to Kyoto station was brilliant. Next time we may stay close to Gion but because we only have two nights in Kyoto being close the fast train from tokyo and osaka - the location worked for us.... More

My husband and I stayed here during our travels in Japan on our honeymoon. We were here for three nights. I'd stay there again if I needed to, but many of the spots we wanted to see in Kyoto were further away, so I'd rather stay somewhere closer to Geisha district. It was close to the train station though, so... More

The hotel is very close to Kyoto station. Room is new and clean. The shower is very small so better enjoy the spa on 9F. The breakfast buffet is good with lots of varieties. Don't miss the free ramen at 9 PM!

The hotel is very well located. Walk from the station three minutes. Clean, like everywhere else in Japan. Great breakfasts. Lots of delicious food. Friendly staff. And great room on the top floor with sauna and pools. After sightseeing in Kyoto - this is it! Thank you!

Though known as a business hotel, this was by far my favorite accommodation during my stay in Japan: steps away from Kyoto station, the price was on point, the facilities well-maintained, the wifi reliable, the staff proficient in English, the service efficient, and the breakfast something to look forward to daily. Our room was a bit cramped but modern and... More

Returned to Kyoto for the 2nd time in 6 months, and based ourselves at Dormy Inn for 3 nights. Tried the onsen this time, which is a great way to unwind after a long day out sight-seeing. Free ramen from 9pm to 11pm for the hungry tummies. The breakfast spread is good value for 15,000 yen, with Japanese and international... 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.
