Stayed here as part of an escorted tour of Japan. My room was on the 8th floor, with 2 double beds, not much of a view, but clean and comfortable. Bed firm but comfy, with good duvet. Had trouble finding bedside light but it's built into the headboard with a black push button. Small bathroom, with the great Toto washlet... More

I stayed here with my son as part of a group, and the group rate was quite good, but the general rate is expensive. This hotel was large, clean, and well-maintained. The function areas used by the group were quite nice, and the lobby was large and very attractive in a sort of modern-Japan way. The staff were helpful. As... More

This hotel has attractive common areas with a beautiful garden and pond off the lobby and restaurant area. The rooms are smallish with the usual modular bathroom. We did smell some cigarette smoke, but it wasn't too strong and we didn't smell it all the time. The breakfast buffet was really good and part of our room package. We don't... More

From all the pictures it looked like a small hotel, but it's not really. Behind the modest facade is a large modern hotel with all the attention to detail you would expect from a Japanese hotel.

Smaller rooms , even though our was considered premium. So our three suit cases were in the way. Staying for five nights was a bit annoying for the space limitations.

This hotel is nice and the staff are wonderful here. Lounge and restaurants are little pricey but that's to be expected at 4 star hotel. Nice clean rooms.

The hotel has a lovely lobby and the staff is very helpful. Some employees speak very good English. The single room has a normal size. The restaurants offer excellent food and ambiance. The small garden with the bamboos and the water is charming.

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.

The hotel's contemporary interpretation of traditional Kyoto values has earned the Kyoto Scenic Beauty Award, as well as the BCS Awards for excellence in modern architecture.
