Hotel MyStays Kyoto Shijo
Ranked #41 of 374 Hotels / Ryokan in Kyoto
Reviewed February 11, 2014

This hotel is situated in about 10 minutes of walk from Kyoto Daimaru. Gion is on the same street and just a few bus stops away. Subway and local train stations are very close by. Compared to staying close to Kyoto JR station, I would recommend this location more. (I stayed close to the Kyoto station in another visit before.) There is definitely more life and activity around this area.
The hotel service was very good and the room was clean. Usually, Japanese hotel rooms are small compared to hotels in other countries relatively. However, the room of the hotel was quite big. It was also very quiet. Definitely, I would recommend this hotel to people visiting this website.

We checked in two comfortable twin bedrooms for 2 nights with unbelievable room charges. Ask the reception for the router if you need free wifi inside the room.

We travelled from Osaka Airport direct to Kyoto Station by JR-West Rail and there is good connection to the hotel at Shijo Subway Station. Guests can enjoy compliementary coffee or green tea milk. There are ample of restaurants and a conveneience store nearby. We also walked to Nijo Castle and took many good photos in the snowy weather.

Room Tip: We have two rooms on the 18/F and the one not facing to the main street is much quiet.

Couldn't believe how cheap this hotel was for what it is. Quick hint, the lobby in up a floor from when you walk in. Great, spacious rooms, my dad and I are big, and we had plenty of room to spread our bags out and move about. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Location is a bit of a hike from stations, but hardly an issue. Overall this was the best value hotel I found in my month in Japan. Would go back in a second.

We stayed for 3 nights, and booked 2 rooms next to each other as we are travelling as a family of 4, kids 11 and 14. We thought the hotel was good value, the location is on Shijo dori. There is no issue for us regarding being far from Kyoto Station, the subway is about 400 metres walk away, however, it is more convenient for everyday commuting to use buses which have stops almost outside the hotel to many tourist attractions. The hotel sells the day passes for 500 Y each (Adult) which is good value as one ride on the bus is 220 Y (Adult). You can walk to the shopping area in about 15 mins towards the Gion District. A good value walking tour is the Gion Night walking tour which is 1000 Y pp. No booking just turn up and it goes for 1 hr 40 mins. Wifi is available in the lobby however, ask them for wifi router to use in your room, this is free and was supplied to us. Lots of eateries close by for convenience, a great 24 hour Fresno supermarket is also next door.

We stayed at this hotel based on previous reviews. We were very happy with the overall room, hotel, and staff. This is a hotel chain - we also stayed in their Osaka hotel (which was also brilliant).

Pros: the price (total of $100 AUD for 2 nights in Jan 2014), location (x2 bus stops nearby, near Shijo subway station, approximately a 15 minute walk to Kyoto Station, and a 10 minute walk to Shijo Kawaramachi which is great for shopping and restaurants ), customer service (helpful, English speaking staff), very clean, comfortable bed, humidifier (essential for a winter stay), and shampoo/conditioner/body wash/hair dryer/safe provided.

Cons: the pillows might take a bit of getting used to. We had a mixture of hard (a memory foam type) and soft (down type). They don't offer a free breakfast, but there is a McDonald's within a 5-10 minute walk. We weren't able to use the WIFI in our room which wasn't a huge deal for us, but we were told it could be accessed from the hotel lobby. Rooms are small, but this is normal for Japan.

Room Tip: If you're arriving after 10pm, be sure to contact the hotel to advise them of your arrival time...

All around great hotel, the only problem is that it's a long walk from Kyoto train station. You'd better take the subway from Kyoto train station to the nearest stop.

Once you're in Kyoto, it's best to get the bus pass to enjoy Kyoto!
