4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It's really a nice hotel and the location close to the railway is a fantastic advantage when you use Kyoto as a base for visiting Osaka and Nara. We stayed for 5 nights and the service was high. Breakfast is a large menu, kids will love it since you can order from the ice-cream "bar"! One issue with the breakfast... More

This is a large elegant hotel, quite expensive, but worth it, My room was number 888, a superior twin room on the new comfort floor. The room was stylish and comfortable. The train station is adjacent to the hotel which is very convenient. Also, the buses and subway stops are just a minute or two away. This is not a... More

A nice hotel, with a somewhat dated atrium and rooms. Dated in style not cleanliness or modernity. The rooms are somewhat traditional in style. The facilities are super clean and the staff extremely nice to work with. Excellent breakfast buffet, both Western, Asian, or Japanese.

Kyoto Century Hotel was the 'home-base' for me and my family for 4 nights when we visited Kyoto and its surrounding towns in mid-August. Overall, we were very impressed by our stay for a few key reasons: 1) Hotel location was just perfect, being located right next to JR Kyoto Station which is the main transit hub in Kyoto. Admittedly... More

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)

Less than few steps from the Kyoto train station, this hotel has everything you need for a perfect stay in Kyoto: location and high level services. The room was clean and larger than other Japanese hotels I have been. Staff was very kind and professional (knowing I'm italian, at the reception they speak italian also). Breakfast offers hundred of items... More

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

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.
