Although the hotel is just a 5 minute taxi drive from Kyoto Station, it has no public transportation othee than taxi in the surroundings. It takes you 30 minutes walking to get to a metro or train station. No many restaurantes in the neighbourhood too. The rooms are small and with few space to store your bags. On the other... More

I stayed here in June and I was amazed! The service was outstanding, nothing was too hard, the food was excellent. The bar is one of the best I have ever gone to, the pizza and the green cocktail with the gold outside was BEAUTIFUL!!!! Beware though, the hotel became somewhat of a crutch because we enjoyed it so much!

The lobby is built around an atrium with a pond and waterfall, beautiful both day and night. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable, and the service impeccable--except in the dining room. While the included breakfast offered a good selection of appealing food, the layout of the dining area made it slow and frustrating to get anything. Some items were... More

The hotel location was not far from the train station. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room however was dated and small.

We spent four nights at the Kyoto Tokyu Hotel, and enjoyed our stay. The lobby and public areas are VERY attractive and spacious; much nicer than we expected given the mid-range pricing. We also liked the way they had a separate lobby for tour groups, which made the regular lobby much less frenetic. The room was very nice; large by... 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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. From the impressive main entrance, and the courtyard water feature recreating the simple purity of the city's Horikawa River, the atmosphere of quiet composure communicates a sense of calm and relaxation to every guest. ... more   less
