If you are new to Kyoto, location of this hotel is very good! Kyoto station is just a stone's throw away. Room is small. Service is good. Counter staff speak reasonably-good English. There is a cosy cafe on ground floor-next to hotel lobby.

Room was quite small but comfortable, not very much room if you are a tall person but otherwise everything you need really. Room was clean and tidied daily, bathroom quite small but functional. You may get a slightly bigger room if you book a twin room. Room was reasonably quiet, there was some work going on during the day outside...

This hotel is reasonable and in a good location but we could only recommend it tor those merely wanting a place to sleep at night. We were warned that the room type we were booking was small but were surprised there was also almost no hanging space. It was also not possible for us to open our luggage because the...

We could take an offer, so we had a good price for 5 nights. And it really was a very good option. Very close to the Kyoto Station, maybe 2-3 minutes. Not very far you have a coin laundry (laundry service of the hotel is expensive) and lots of different konbini and restaurants. The best thing of the hotel was...

This is an excellent choice for anyone flying into Kansai airport in Osaka and depending on public transportation. It is just down the street from Kyoto station.

Yes, it functions OK but nothing fancy. If you are travelling fast, and just need a place to be parked, then this hotel can be perfect, but no extra entertainment with it.

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.
