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.

Apartment style hotel that is really impressive....spotlessly clean, safe and in a great location in Kyoto. It feels like you are in a friend's apartment. Checking in was weird because you have to go to building next door and never saw person sitting at front desk (there for 3

We had the pleasure of staying at this amazing hotel, and it was amazing in everyway. I am not too sure where to start. 1. The rooms were one of the biggest we have ever stayed in. There was a huge western bed which was big enough for my husband & I (both of us are 6ft

We made a last minute booking for Kyoto and secured a room in this hotel. It’s actually more of an apartment as they don’t serve food. But we were aware of this so it wasn’t a problem. We loved it. I think there are only 4-5 rooms. We loved ours as it was spacious with a Great

Aoi was the highlight hotel of our trip to Japan! We booked room 101 for 4 nights, which is on the ground floor right next to reception. We had a beautiful balcony and view of the river from both the living area and the gorgeous bathroom. The in-unit laundry was an excellent

It is probably the best place to stay in Kyoto. Alongside the River Takasegawa, you can enjoy the nice view of all seasons of Kyoto, not to mention the Sakura season. A lot of lovely restaurants nearby. It’s definitely our first choice!

Dear 591noelc, Thank you for your review and we are very delighted to know that you enjoyed the house, the river view and the surrounding during your stay.

Dear Hsiao T, Thank you very much for your inquiry. We are happy to tell you that we do provide Yamato courier service in case you want to send your luggage to any location inside of Japan. May it be the next hotel or the airport, we will gladly assist you with filling out the slips we provide at our hotel. However, please note that you will have to pay for any resulting sending fees and that we usually prepare slips that are for payment upon arrival inside of your room. However, depending on the destination they might not accept payment upon arrival and in this case we would need your credit card details since we will need to do payment upon shipping and we would then withdraw the resulting fee from your credit card. We hope that this answered your question. Should there be anything unclear or if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Kind regards, Aoi Hotel Kyoto

Dear Gloria, Thank you for your inquiry. May we know if you already made reservation at our townhouse? For guests who stayed at townhouse, we can provide baby bed, which is suitable for kid under 12 months. The rental fee for using baby bed is JPY 1000/nights. While if the baby bed is not suitable for your baby, since most of our townhouse, the bedroom is Japanese type, guests will sleep on tatami with futon (Japanese mattress), if we merge two mattress together, we think it is still able for you to share the mattress with your baby. In order to prepare the suitable bedding for you, when you make reservation, please leave a comment for letting us know you will come with your baby. We hope the above information is useful to you. Best Regards, Aoi Kyoto Stay

"Non River view single was really impressive!"
"Any of the rooms facing the river are a good choice. I imagine the smaller rooms facing the road have to deal with street noise at night."
"Make sure you are booking the aoi hotel with the newer rooms, we almost booked a traditional room."
"We saw several rooms they were all very nice."
"Each room has a different layout so choose carefully."
