The staff were simply excellent, went above and beyond for us, were flexible and understanding. Rooms were a reasonable size, breakfast was good, handy to convenience stores. Location wasn't as close to the action as we would have liked but the access to the metro did make up for it. Recommended *I lost my cellphone in a taxi and the...

Close to the station, clean, good breakfast and enjoyed the hot tab. They also had free electric converters and lots of guide books about Kyoto at the reception. Very helpful staff who printed out timetables for various trains for us when planning the rest of the trip.

This hotel is very conveniently located by the Gojo subway station. As is true with many hotel rooms in Japan, our room was small by Western Standards, but it was otherwise very nice - clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff was very professional and helpful. I'd recommend this hotel even only on these points. But Aranvert has one extra thing...

The Aranvert Hotel is a standard hotel with good access to public transit and local tourist attractions. The staff is friendly and professional. The Wifi is good and reliable.

We stayed there for 3 nights. Our room was small, as well bathroom. Personnel was nice and helpful. Main benefit is its location, with a Family Mart across the street and nearby subway station, and its public bath. The view from our room was not really thrilling

Good location opposite seven eleven and near subway station. Little beds pushed out from the wall but quiet and comfy. We had onsen spa here and that was interesting time. This was an ok place to stay in Kyoto that was cheap and pretty clean with a strong shower, reasonable price and friendly staffs.

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.
