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

This hotel packs a lot of Japanese business men in a tight space conveniently located near the Kyoto train station. The rooms---at least, my room---are very small. It has a bed, a few inches of walk space and a way-too-narrow desk. No closets, so one has to live out of one's suitcase. While the service in Japan is a league... 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.
