We stayed here for just one night. Everything is simply average and dated. Location: 10 min walk from the closest subway Room: simply average and a little dated It is a little overpriced but we stayed on a Saturday night and expected this. Will forget once we leave. Done the job.

This hotel on my trip thus far has unfortunately been the most unmemorable. Booking for my trip began months ago and with 7 hotels, initially this one already seemed an issue. With no credit card payment allowed on booking and only payment on arrival meant more planning for expenditures etc. Months later, arriving in Kyoto and ready to book in...

This is an old school hotel from the entrance to the rooms – not in a good way though. All the equipment is old and should have been replaced 15 years ago. The best days of thist hotel are certanly over. Our triple room was very very small. We did not even have a place for our lugages. The only...

When we first entered the room, the scent/freshener was just too sweet for my liking. But I was able to just tolerate and get used to it afterwards. The comforters were too used for ages that's why there are sewn pieces and holes that are evident. But I am glad that they changed the comforters too every time they makeup...

This place is a find. Nothing exceptional but we weren't after that sort of place. We needed somewhere in a good location to stay the night in Kyoto, with good transport links and with a few eateries and bars nearby. Thats exactly what we got! Plus it was nice and clean, with helpful friendly staff and in the foyer theres...

Great location near the train station, chemist, eateries and shopping mall. Wifi is free in the room but a bit scratchy. Very clean place and pleasant staff. The Rooms are basic complete with the capsule bathroom. The foyer is really nice. (Hence this and that) Check out the koi fish against the back wall. Breakfast is not included but you...

Quiet area, cosy room and friendly staff. Room includes a wifi, TV (with limited English channels), electric kettle and some tea. Located about a 10-15 min walk from the heart of Kyoto, where you can find street performers, shopping malls, a casino, restaurants, bars and even some clubs. Stayed here in Oct 2015. Would definitely come back.

We had a pleasant stay in this Hotel. We were assigned a room in floor 10, which gave a good view for some street pictures and a quiet room. Hotel is old but well maintained.

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.
