Tiny room. No dresser. No closet but 4 hangars. No room to leave a suitcase open. Marginal AC at best and Unadjustable. I will try to get a dehumidifier and see if that helps. Tiny bathroom. Empty refrigerator. I didn't get my bottle of water. Definitely not a fan. But it's clean. Location is good. And you do get an... More

The hotel is close to Kyoto station, just about 5-minute walking distance. It should not be a problem carrying your luggage from the train station to the hotel. Just to make sure you get to the right APA hotel as there is another around the corner. The area is quiet and the hotel is quite clean. There is a public... More

Room was little too small: travelling with two suitcases and once we'd put them down barely room left to dress or move around. Table extremely narrow and barely any room given it held television and large amount of hotel-provided pamphlets; made it very cramped when using kettle or trying to organise your own things (ended up using the bed) and...

There are some positives I can think of when I stayed in this hotel and the main one was probably the location as it was close to the train stations. They had a nice onsen and the food on the first floor was decent. The negatives definitely outweigh the positives however. First of all, the room itself is quite small... More

The location is really great, it is walking distance to Kyoto Station, I really love the Public Bath and could spend hours there, especially during winter. Unfortunately, like mostly hotel in Japan, the room is too small to fit 2 luggage.

Hotel was very convenient and clean. Reception very nice. Our room was so small that we had to keep our suitcases standing and closed. The step up into the bathroom a bit dangerous at night and the pipe leaked from the tip flooding the floor.

My favorite thing about this hotel: location. It takes five minutes to walk from this hotel to Kyoto Station. Arriving in Kyoto at night via train was not a problem because the hotel was so close and easy to find. It's literally next door neighbors with at least two other APA Hotels (which I walked into accidentally thinking they were... 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.
