My family and I loved the close proximity to Kyoto Station which is home to many popular eats and souvenir shops, and accessible subway lines. There is also a Lawson within the hotel itself. Free ramen is available from 9pm onwards, and the ramen was pretty decent for dinner/supper. The onsen was an added bonus especially after a rainy day... More

This was our second stay at a Dormy Inn and the standard was just as good as the first. The room was great and the onsen wonderful. The washing machines were in the male and female onsens, although this is not really an issue. Breakfast was very good, very Japanese, and the inn is very close to the station. We... More

This Dormy Inn had a nice looking onsen, but I didn't have time to check it out, maybe next time! There was an extra charge for breakfast, but they give free noodle ramen at night. The staff were really sweet and helpful although no-one seemed to speak any English. The rooms are small, which is standard in Japan, with nowhere... More

If you are planning day trips, staying at the Dormy Inn across the street from the train station, is most helpful. This is not a review of the station but it has at least 80 restaurants, dancing water and music show outside and incredible moving light effects inside. Having said this, there is no action here and if you enjoy... More

This hotel is within walking distance of Kyoto's central train station, a hub for local buses as well. The rooms are small but well-appointed and the breakfasts are fabulous. A 7-11 with an international atm is right around the corner.

The location of this hotel is unbeatable! It is only a minute or two if you take the A-3 exit of the underground mall Porta which is connected to the Kyoto station. From A-3 exit, the hotel is literally just diagonally across the street and there's a "scramble" crossing. This route is helpful on rainy days! To get to the... More

Relatively near subway, and link to JR railway, with clean rooms stocked well with everything you need - safe, yukata, slippers, fridge, kettle, TV, etc. even though the room was small!

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.
