Avoid this hotel. The room: they should model prison cells on those rooms. The inmates would not commit crimes after doing time there. The room had maybe a foot between the wall and two sides of the bed. It has this dirty beige color of the walls. Very depressing looking. The toilet is about the size of the airplane toilet...

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...

I know we booked a small double, but the room was miniature. Absolutely no closet space, just 4 hangers on 2 hooks on the wall. There was barely any room to stash our small suitcases. The room info card said that we would get free water if we put the Do Not Disturb sign on the door, but they just...

Location: The APA hotel Kyotoeki-Horikawadori is one street North West of the Main Kyoto station and only takes 10 minutes walking time. It’s one of the easiest hotels to find once you have a map of the small city centre. The dark reception area is down a few steps with a Restaurant to the right as you enter. Quality of...

Rooms typically small, affordable for Kyoto. The restaurant is not so good. Food is cheap and flavorless. Most items consist of tofu if you're doing the meal that comes with the room. There's a sauna, and the vending machines have beer in them :)

Horrendous!!! Our 2 night stay in Kyoto was completely ruined by this hotel. The bed was without doubt a concrete slab and the room was oppressively small, making the whole experience inadequate in every way. The plastic mouldy bathroom was in one corner and it was miniscule. We had absolutely no sleep whatsoever the first night. I complained in the...

Stay here if you like to pay stellar prices for a room the size of a large car, sleep (or rather stay awake) in a bed as soft as a tombstone, get a headache every time you try and speak English with staff that don't understand a word, join 30-people queues for breakfast. If you like all that, this is...

We stayed 3 nights and I'd say that is a maximum. Our room was quite small, bathroom very small, but the room was clean and the room service was very good. We had a nice firm bed which we both need. The price of the room was quite low by American standards. There was a restaurant attached, the Gin Yuba,...

Good modern 3* hotel. Rooms are very tiny, no wardrobe or shelves, for 2-3 nights minimum. Situated not far from city center, to get to ponto cho it will take you 1200 yen to pay. Wifi is in the rooms. Breakfast: mostly oriental with some omelette and yogurt. Be careful: there can be a queu to enter restaurant for 20-30...

This hotel was quite disappointing for us. Far too expensive for the size of the room and the staff quality. The location is good, since you are 3 blocks away from the train station. If you arrive at the Train Station you need to go outside to the buses area (from where you will see the Kyoto Tower). Once you...

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.
