4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Staff was very friendly and helpful. She always smiles when we talk to her. Room was okay with everything you need, clean, large TV but very narrow space. We had 2 large luggages, which was so hard to fit and open. Cafe on the first floor was good. You can easily find many restaurants around there.

Clean hotel, tiny rooms with barely enough room to stand yet there's a 48 inch TV taking up half the space. Doesn't make sense. Overall, good value for money and in a decent location near the train station.

Good things - REALLY good location close to the train station and there's a lot of restaurants and cafées in the area. Less good stuff - Like everyone else said, the room was very small. 2 suitcases don't fit in there at all if they aren't standing up the whole time. They only got one elevator which was very irritating... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in May 2016. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly. The hotel is situated in a great location - only a few minutes' walk to the station. There are many food options nearby. I'd definitely stay here again!

Positive things first: the location of this hotel is really good near the train station and with a lot of nice shops and restaurants around. Also the staff at the front desk was friendly and spoke English of a quite acceptable standard (which is definitely not usual in Japan). BUT... 1.) We expected the hotel room to be really small...

The location was great, breakfast was good, large TV screen but the room was smaller than a cruise ship cabin. The length of the room was the bed and no room for anything. You could barely turn around in the bathroom. Would not recommend it.

Conveniently located 5 walking minutes from Kyoto station, shopping & dining. Made getting anywhere super easy! The breakfast was good also but the room itself was a little run down. Still nice & clean but needed some renovations.

I'm not sure if they have updated the place since but we came a few years ago while we visited Japan and I must say that the rooms were small.

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.
