One thing we always look for is the service we get provided for a family of 4, including 2 small children. We got 4 twin size beds, which was very nice and relaxing for all of us. The service was great as usual. The teppanyaki restaurant in the hotel was amazing as well, although not recommended for children unless they... More

While the lobby has a lovely staircase, the furniture in my room was quite beat up and dated and it required a (de?)humidifier. The location is not particularly close to anything although my view to the east of the sunrise over the mountains was nice. WiFi access is limited to your own room and is not available in the restaurants.... More

The hotel is beautiful. Our room was on the twelfth floor and had a great view of the city but I would stay in a room that faced a wall. Our room was particularly spacious, because we needed three beds, but I imagine every room is pretty big. It had a large bath/shower room apart from the sink and mirror.... More

Located within easy walk to the downtown area and train station. The room was spacious, clean and we had a good view to the south. Lots of choices at the buffet in the morning. The staff was always helpful.

This hotel is great. The room is spacious and clean. Overall it's an upscale hotel with great service. The location is a little far from major attractions but there is a shuttle bus to the train station. Make sure to get a schedule sheet and get on the bus as early as possible. It could be full way before scheduled... More

Stayed one night at this hotel. The room is clean and equipped with air purifier which makes the room smell very fresh. The bathroom is a good size. Our room is on the 10th floor overviewing the city. The bed is firm and very quiet. The only thing that need to comment on is using a real key with an... 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.
