Comfortable, clean and affordable in a good location. On a quiet street near two subway stops. The staff was friendly and spoke enough English to provide some help and direction. There were some steps to navigate to our room but not an issue for us.

I did not have much expectation on this hotel but was pleasantly surprise soon as we arrived. The staff was nice and friendly, the room was very spacious (10 tatami mats) and our 17 month old baby was very happy running around the room without us worrying about her falling off beds or bumping into something. A good room style... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in April 2016. I booked a Japanese style room (triple). The room was pretty big, came with traditional Japanese tatami mats, an own bathroom, a refrigerator and a flat-screen TV. Free toiletries, towels and a Yukata were provided. There's room service available - beverages only (including soft drinks, beer, sake, ...). Free breakfast is... More

We stayed 5 nights at this hotel during cherry blossom season with very reasonable price. The hotel is quite old but very clean and the staffs are very friendly. The room size is much bigger than the western businesss hotel. I like the shower at the basement especially after a long walk in Kyoto. I also like the location, it... More

For the money this place is excellent. Great location in a nice area, close to good shops, supermarkets, restaurants and subway. Traditional style rooms, quiet, great shower. Large Kimono style dressing gowns changed daily. Free breakfast (but did not try this as out early every morning) Staff friendly. Would definately stay here again. Recommended.

We checked in for a Japanese experience. I'm going to be frank here, this place is like a hostel. Our neighbours were Japanese and had no respect for our peace with their kid banging on the paper thin walls. There was a certain Japanese group who looked like assassins when I went to complain about the noise.....but they were very... More

We stayed here for one night before travelling to Osaka. The room was a traditional Ryokan accommodation - futon mattresses on the floor. We had a private ensuite room. Hotel was clean, reception staff were friendly and spoke some English. Breakfast was included in the rate - it is a limited buffet selection in the basement - curry sauce, rice,... More

Decided to book this hotel as most hotels are very expensive during the golden week in Japan. Hence, thought of giving trying this as photo on website looks appealing and price is good for a family of 4. However, to my disappointment, the check in time is 4pm and check out time is 10 am. The room is very simple... More

Staying in City Center

Neighborhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
