I booked this hotel due to its location mainly and the overall OK price considering Kyoto's area hotels price (which is high) - so far I've stayed in 4 hotels and this one has topped it with being horrible: 1. We arrived at an old smelly room with broken bed light and holes and stains on the wall 2. Next... More

This hotel has communal hot baths on the top floor, which are a nice touch. A pity that the baths are not always well maintained and some equipment doesn't work properly. The communal baths at the Dormy Inn Premium, also near the rail station, are far superior.

This may have been the smallest room we've had during our 4 months of travels in Asia, but it was clean and cozy, and enough when you're spending the day outside. AC and hot water worked fine, and complimentary water, robes, and slippers like all business hotels. Make sure to get a non-smoking room if you can! The Kyoto Station... More

Located in near to Kyoto Station, walking distance around 10 minutes. Convenience location next to small shops and restaurants. The room was small same as the bathroom. I think it was more suitable for solo traveller. One major plus, there was a sauna, hot spring bath or spa at the roof top, open until midnight. Very nice for relaxing and... More

I took this hotel for the hotel chain APA and the price at the time and proximity to Kyoto station. It's a bit of a walk if one takes the wrong exit out of kyoto station. It's on the exit on the west side and right on the Expressway-Horikawa. We booked the 'double room'.. not the Small Double as we... More

To have the best rates on this hotel, you need to book far in advance. I booked 2 nights on a weekend in Kyoto and the price was very expensive for a basic japanese business hotel. I booked within the same week though. The hotel is outside the train station and down a few blocks from the station. While it... 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.

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.
