My husband stayed at the Dormy In early June 2012. We thought it was a fantastic hotel. Pros: Easy to get there Clean Great shower and the shampoo and body wash were awesome! Cozy Cons: No Wifi If you are planing on staying for a new nights while you check out Kyoto this place is a great little hotel!!

I don't have many comments about this hotel as I see any special thing about it. Very small room, average buffet breakfast, but expensive (we paid JPY 25000/room/nite in early april 2012). The only advange is its location (near Kyoto station). We will opt for another hotel for our next trip in Kyoto.

Bored with standard, small, bland and inspired by business hotels around Kyoto-Eki, I splashed out a wee bit for a night at the Dormy Inn. Extremely well worth it. Lovely decor throughout the hotel... modern japanese design. The twin room was a bit of a weird layout; walk in to an entrance area with hanging/ closet space; bathroom vanity; then...

Great location near Kyoto Station. Room had small sleeping/sitting area, more spacious bathroom with excellent shower, but sleeping area size not unusual for Japan. Terrific breakfast buffet included in our rate which helped offset the price. Very nice rooftop onsen. Staff friendly, most with very limited command of English. During 6 days, I did not see another non-Asian, which I...

I have stayed at a couple of Dormy Inns now, and I love the concept. These are classy business hotels that offer a great value (I paid $100/night in June, the high season!) and have rooms that are bright, clean, and very well thought out in terms of the usage of space. I stayed in the Kyoto Dormy Inn for...

Compact but Lovely rooms. Hot spring baths were just the ticket to combat jet lag, really nice set up in communal baths. Breakfast was extra for us, pricey but really good quality & great choice. 5 min walk from train station is great location. Great modern, spotless hotel - excellent choice for Kyoto.

We decided on Kyoto as our first ever annual family winter vacation spot. As we didn't have any definite plans, we randomly chose Dormy Inn as our choice of hotels when we arrived in Kyoto. Getting a reservation at 4pm, proved to be a breeze with the receptionist, giving us (2 adults, 1 child) a decent sized room w/breakfast plan...

I've stayed @ other fancy onsen hotels from this chain ex. Hakone Setsugetsuka resort before but this is my first for Dormy Inn. It's a new business hotel located within 5 minutes walk from Kyoto station. Price is regular around US$150 per night. Check-in quick and efficient. Staff's English adequate as she tries to explain onsen and breakfast info. Room...

I've stayed at the Dormy Inn Kyoto-Eki-Mae for a total of three times. As a resident of Japan, that's pretty high praise. Two out of three times I've booked ahead, but I've also had good experiences as a walk-in customer. The hotel isn't anywhere close to downtown, though it's within walking distance for people who like walking. However, its proximity...

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.
