Just an overall nice place to stay. Close to train station but very quiet. Lovely staff. Excellent food and wine choices. Comfy bed and room. Could not fault anything during our 3 nite stay. Would highly recommend.

A lot of restaurants and cafes are three minutes away in the CUBE, the underground mall of the train station. With the Bus 100 you can reach a lot sightseeing spots. The rooms are very...

Grand comfort rooms seem to be just renovated, spacious and well appointed, although sink seems to be located in unusual location. Buffet breakfast was excellent with variety of eastern and western choices, ice cream section. Security could be improved with key access to the lift and room floors.

We reserved the hotel through booking.com, and stayed there for three nights, we booked a twin bedroom with an extra bed. The Hotel was exactly next to Kyoto Station, and this was a major advantage to us throughout our stay. The check in process was done fast and smooth. The concierge staff were very helpful and prompt. In our room...

This is, overall, a very good hotel. It looks nice everywhere. The staff are awesome and helpful. Breakfast is great and not crowed. The rooms look nice and clean. Bathroom is amazing. BUT, there were some problems that deserve attention from the hotel. Our room (this could be an exception, I don't know) smelled of chemicals, perhaps new paint or...

This is a fantastic hotel. The room and facilities are immaculate. Staff is also very friendly. Breakfast buffet is fantastic with wide variety - it even had ice cream and cakes for those with morning sweet tooth. Location is very convenient - literally a couple of minutes walk to train, bus and taxi. If you can't be bothered going out...

Loved this hotel from the moment we stepped outside train station into the cold wind and saw how close it was!! Also the front desk staff is superb and SOOO helpful, making restaurant reservations, contacting a Japanese business for me, and just acknowledging us whenever we left and returned. The restaurant breakfast buffet was excellent and wait staff courteous and...

We stayed at the Kyoto Century Hotel in the middle of March, 2016. This is a very quiet, clean and modern hotel only minutes from Kyoto Station. Our room was elegantly furnished and included high end carpets, drapes and bed covers. It was small by North American standards, but adequate in size. Included was a Toto wash-let toilet (an experience...

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.
