Location is perfect, few steps from Kyoto station, stores and restaurants. Staff is gentle, rooms are spacious and well decorated. Excellent breakfast buffet, including asian and western dishes and even an ice cream buffet. Highly recommend this hotel.

We spent one night here and all was perfect. The room was roomy, beautiful and very well cleaned, the bathroom was a nice mixture of western and japanese style. The location is perfect, a few steps away from the Shinkansen station and underground and bus stops to wander around the city until the last minute available. One of the conciergerie... More

Made a spur of the moment decision to go to kyoto. Chose this hotel based on reviews and was very pleased. Very pleasant hotel, well located near the station. Staff are quite pleasant but be aware they are traditional and the male always pays. Got the worst look when my mother took her turn paying for accommodation.

After a two day stop at this hotel on our itinerary through Japan: Pros: + Comfortable rooms + Great location, next to the train station + Good breakfast buffet Cons: - Terrible view to an indoor roof (won't affect all rooms)

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days. The staff is very attentive and polite. The dining choices are abundant. Everything would be 5 stars but for the tiny room size. We had 1 small and 1 medium suitcases. We had to keep one of the suitcases had to be closed all the time because there is no room in... More

This hotel right next to Kyoto station offers enough luxury to be able to enjoy Kyoto even during the hot summer months. Kyoto is a great spot to use as a base for exploring the surrounding cities and sites. When coming back to have a rest in your hotel from the often sweltering heat you need a cool and quiet... More

Most people will probably fly into Kansai Airport and then catch the train to Kyoto. The station is attached directly to the airport and the comfortable train trip leaves exactly on time and takes exactly one hour and twenty minutes. Buy a return ticket since it is cheaper. The Kyoto Century Hotel is just a two minute easy walk from... More

This hotel was so central to shopping, eatery's and attractions in Kyoto, good central place to stay. The hotel was large but not noisy and the rooms extremely clean. Easy to get to if arriving by train from other part of Japan.

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.
