We booked this place for our last night and wished we'd had a few more nights here. The rooms are traditional (tatami mats, screened off areas, etc) with a few modern ammenities (TV, small kitchenette for self catering). At either end of the street there...More

We were so excited to stay at a ryokan, but this place is not a real ryokan it's just a regular hotel. The wifi internet did not work at all. They have 50 rooms in this hotel all using the same internet, so it was...More

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.
