Again I had difficulty in finding the hotel, not their fault but with no smart phone will cause problems. A very efficient hotel, you pay the computer. Around a 15 min walk from Kyoto train station, not far from the major attractions of Kyoto when you get to know where you are. Rooms very nice.Breakfasts are a bit of a let down, taken next door in a Komeda coffee house. Apart from that. More

I was having trouble finding a bank that would accept my Canadian banking card. I was not staying at the hotel at the time, but the front desk staff was happy to help me out. They used their lobby computer and researched Plus System locations in Japan. Seven Eleven was the place. The manager had the younger staff member walk 2 blocks with me to the closest location to confirm that it would work. Success! After I inserted the card into the machine an English button appeared and I received my cash. The service was above and beyond. Thanks, More

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighborhood Profile
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.
