City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

The Royal Park is in a very convenient and central location. Buffet breakfast is quite adequate. Rooms are likewise. The staff was extremely helpful, with many speaking good English. Our room did not have a view but was very quiet.

This hotel was very modern and clean, but the room was quite small. We were able to push the two twin beds together to sleep with our two young kids but found it hard to fit our large luggages in the room. The shower was in the bath tub too which I consider a negative. The

We loved this hotel -- our room was beautiful and comfortable, and common spaces in the hotel (breakfast downstairs, the bar area) were tasteful and accessible without being overcrowded. Pontocho is very close, and we had some lovely evening walks along the river. Many thanks

We stayed here three nights recently and found it to be a very good central location. Plenty of restaurants on the doorstep. The rooms are small but this seems to be common in Japan. The breakfast is fine but rather limited from day to day. Excellent bar with great service and

Lovely hotel situated ideally for subway and bus routes. Rooms are nice and clean and PJ’s, slippers and toiletries supplied. Not much hanging space (2 short hanging rails and 6 hangers) and no drawer space to unpack suitcase - but we lived out of our suitcase easily. Bar area

I do know about Higashiyama but for Arashiyama, I would strongly recommend the train because it is quite a distance. The train is faster than the buses and do not get caught in traffic.

Don’t ever stay here. The attitude from the hotel staffs are horrible and they would go all way out to charge you even if you have already paid. They use threatening method by telling you that they will not allow you to check in. Stay away from this hotel.

You probably don’t need to purchase it before hand since the price is the same as you buy it before or when you get to Japan. You can stop by at any of the JR station to buy the tickets or ask your hotel concierges to help you find the nearest places. They take credit card for tickets, but make sure to bring enough cash since most of local places in Kyoto only take cash.
