Writing this review from the lobby! Hotel is nothing to write home about, but a solid budget place to sleep. Rooms are TEENY TINY but that seems to be the norm here. Breakfast was soso, very crowded. Our room overlooks a busy street, but I gotta say its suprisingly quiet! Bonus points for that. Checkin staff was nice, but didnt...

We stayed at APA Hotel Kyoto-Eki-Horikawadori for 2 nights. The room was tiny but clean and comes with all amenities we need. The wifi, however, was surprisingly poor! We think because the hotel have many rooms and many people were using the wifi at night so it was almost impossible to use the wifi from our room (no big deal...

The good point about this hotel is it close to the station. After that it all goes down hill. You walk in and there are cases just left in the lobby (they have nowhere to store them). The hotel is old and in need of decoration. The room, sold as a double, was not big enough for one. Unfortunately there...

Stayed there for 3 nights. The room is really tiny. Hard to move and no place to put your stuffs. Bed is hard and room is not sound proof. Location wise is ok as there is Kyoto station and Porta Underground Mall for shopping and meals and 7-11 is just next door. It is not the nearest to Kyoto station...

We stayed 4 nights but our original room was very small, so we upgraded to a larger room (for not very much). Both were clean and with good amenities. Staff at the hotel were friendly and polite, helping us with directions, and left luggage on the last day of our stay. 5 minute walk to Kyoto Station and with a...

Overall stay was nice except the fact that rooms are very very cramped. Good part it's near station and a mall. Also there are some shrines near by. It's very difficult to open the suitcase completely in hotel room as they are very small.

Stayed for 4 days. The location is great. Right next to Kyoto Station. Room is super small and inefficient. Two regular size adults can hardly move around inside the room. Breakfast is god but you need to line up for 15 to 20 minutes every morning for a table The spa on 11th floor was a big plus

The first room that we had for a night was very small, in fact I couldn't get into the very first room so quick change later to a slightly bigger shoe box size room, and I was able to get my wheelchair next to the bed. I was never getting into the tiny bathroom, (standing room only) with a 500mm...

The location is good about 10 minutes walk from Kyoto station. Situated in a quiet locality with some Izakayas (restaurants) for food. The hotel only serves breakfast for Yen 1500 if booked earlier or Yen 1600 at the counter. The rooms are definitely small in keeping with Japanese standards. Very neat and clean, they provide all basic necessities including toiletries....

What a great review from Gav H from the UK. Have just had 2 particularly uncomfotable nights at this place. Trying to be positive it is convenient to the train station, there's a nice little coffee shop opposite, an excellent ramon bar 100m away towards the train station and most importantly a 7/11 store next door that was able to...

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.
