As you exit the Kyoto station just look up and you'll see the Kyoto Tower. The hotel entrance is at the base of the tower, just across the street from the station. Just cross the street at the corner (with a lot of other people!) and turn left. Walk about 1/4 block and look for the entrance. The lobby is... More

Located directly across the street from Kyoto station for trains and buses. Great food in the station. Hotel is older. Rooms larger than expected for Japan. Bathroom tiny, similar to a cruise ships bathroom. Hotel staff speaks English and try's hard to help out. The only issue is the ac did not cool very well.

My kids and I stayed for 1 nigh 2 days at this hotel. The location is perfect. It is located across the Kyoto station which is convenient for the metro and the bullet train (Shinkansen). The rooms are spacious but the carpet was a little dirty. The bathroom was small but with all the amenities. The personnel was extremely polite... More

The hotel very convenient, 1 minute walk to Kyoto Station, the room big enough for 3 beds, the bathroom typical Japanese(small and compact). The good thing is the toilet seat very warm but the downside is the shower curtain very smelly! About the room, I think the need to clean more, specialy at windows area have a lot of dust!

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. The location is the best, just opposite to the Kyoto train station, which is the centre of Kyoto. From Kyoto train station you can take any transportation, e.g. bus, train and taxi, to travel to any destination in Kyoto with ease. Staff are polite and always come with a smile. The hotel... More

I have to admit that before checking into Kyoto Tower Hotel I had recently stayed at Southern Century Hotel in Tokyo, so I was quite used to having a large luxurious hotel room, so when we checked into Kyoto Tower Hotel it was a little different to what I had anticipated (and it was only about $30 a night cheaper...

We stayed in Kyoto Tower Hotel for the last 2 days in Japan. Hotel is just located in front of JR Kyoto Station and hotel itself is a landmark of the place - a Kyoto tower is exactly on top of the hotel. Hotel's exterior is little bit old style as same as the lobby and the interior design in... More

Decent hotel within close proximity of station and offers a discount for those visiting the iconic tower. Note: would probably return for stay at the same hotel as i realized after a visit to the tower that the binoculars are so powerful that you could see people in their rooms from the neighboring hotels ><"

The Hotel is very close to the station, which is a spectacular building. Rooms are small, but this is normal here. Fortunately these are quiet, and clean. There is everything one needs for a short stay. Nothing exceptional. Very dignified. Breakfast is very good value for money. Only 1,680 Yen, for a buffet including both Japanese and European style food.... More

Located right across the Kyoto train station and very close to other amenities. Yodabashi was around the corner as well as restaurants, convenient stores, other shopping and bike hire places. The rooms were a lot bigger than what we were use to but with the 4th bed we had it was barely flat. It was on an angle which made... 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.
