“Great place to stay in Kyoto”

We stayed here because of the location and flex that it offered.
It's a clean, modern and well located aparthotel. Staff were really friendly and helpful.

It was towards the end of our trip so the facilities and apart nature of the complex really helped us.

Nothing to complain about, happy to recommend.

On arrival in Kyoto emerging from the subway we were met by torrential rain. The sight of our hotel steps away from Gojo station was most welcoming. Not much to look at from the front, that theme most definitely doesn't continue inside. From the reception to the rooms all very modern. Rooms are small but well laid out and Very clean. It was quite cold when we stayed and heating in the rooms was easily controlled. The small kitchen area was great feature, very clean and didn't have 'that smell' that is often found in well used, hotel rooms. Our rate included self service breakfast which was more than adequate and well worth the money to set you up for the day. There is a 7 11 shop across the road where you can purchase pretty much everything for breakfast, lunch and dinner if on budget and a scattering of restaurants but for the real Kyoto vibe it's about 30 min walk. I know this isn't too bad but we had an older member of the family with us and two grumpy pre teenagers and after a full day sightseeing they weren't too enamoured about the walk. That being said, the subway is on the door step and buses are plentiful so it really isn't an issue. Reception staff at the hotel are incredibly friendly, eager to assist you with directions, specific restaurant type locations , sights etc.....Kyoto is the most amazing place, steeped in amazing sights to see. If planning a visit try and give yourself at least a few days to soak it all in.....memories to last a lifetime

This place is a true find. The hotel is quite new, well designed and flawlessly clean. Easy location close to everything and a very comfortable room. Great beds.

One of the best values I have perhaps ever found. I recommend it highly. I stayed at the Hyatt here two years ago. It is terrific and beautifully designed, but four or five times more expensive. I'd prefer to stay at Citadenes and use the "found" money on meals and touring.

What a pleasant surprise - all the reviews and the description/photos on the website are true!

The décor and in-room facility really made us feel at home. With around US$120/night we had a spacious king-bed room with a kitchen where we cooked dinner for 2 nights. The location is great - 7-11 across the street, subway in front of the hotel, super-market and restaurants within 5-min walking distance.

Really nothing to complain about!

Room Tip: There is a bicycle rental place in the alley next to the hotel. You will enjoy the city more riding...

It really isn't that close to the city center but when you're in Kyoto you have to understand that its a very quaint and relaxing place. Location doesnt matter as much as it does when in Tokyo or other heavily populated places.

Citadines-Kyoto is clean, modern, beautiful rooms with a kitchen (complete with plates and ample space. Some rooms can easily fit 3-4 people as the living room couch can be made into a pull-out bed and for the price i paid (39,000 yen for 3 nights) this was a STEAL.

Its close to restaurants, good ones, there are groceries around as well for the kitchen.

Room Tip: Because the room i chose had a kitchen, make sure you pick a room with a kitchen too - im not sure i...

Citadines is not the run of the mill "Japanese" experience but after more than a week of sleeping on tatami mats, a modern room with a good bed was much welcomed. The room was spacious, complete with a large comfy bed, a couch, a little kitchenette and a great shower!

We didn't have a view as we literally faced the wall of the next building but we weren't there for good views anyway so it was a non-issue.

Very well located, literally a few steps from the subway station and about 20 minutes walk to downtown Kyoto. A few restaurants and convenient stores are within walking distance.

The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and very comfy. Definitely good value!
