“Perfect stay”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Everything - the room, the staff, the service, the hotel - everything was perfect. Room service, front desk, housekeeping staff - perfect! Fabulous location. Large, spacious rooms, understated in decor but none the worse for it - seemed immaculately kept - keep up the really high standards!

Spacious room and less than 1 min walk to the exit of Karasuma Gojo station. Lots of food joints nearby the hotel and convenience store is just across the road.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and are able to communicate very well in English. They have these little maps with the instructions on how to get to some of the tourist spots by buses, the bus number to take and their timing, which I thought was very thoughtful of them. On the whole, Citadines is definitely a great hotel to stay in!

The only downside is that the nearest subway exit is a stairs only exit and the only escalator exit is abt 10mins walk away. So after a day of sight seeing, climbing up the subway stairs can be tiring for the elderly.

This serviced apartment is excellent. I stayed here for 10 nights. The location is right by the Go-jo subway line but you can take a nice walk and be at the Kamo River in about 5 minutes, 10-12 minutes walk to the JR station and the bus stop is right in front of the building. It is a super good value compared to some of the Western hotels who are charging much more. You have a nice space with a small fridge, a cooker, a tea kettle for those days when you want to snack or don't want to go out to eat. The staff speak excellent English and can help you with bus routes, etc. Spotlessly clean. No need to bring hair products - excellent supply. Bathroom is nice and large with all conveniences. Free wifi. The only thing I was not too keen on was the breakfast but I went often and read, drank lots of juice, the coffee is really good and if you like eggs and toast - there you go. Otherwise the MacDonald's is just out the door to the left about 50 feet! Book early if you know you will be in Kyoto or you will be disappointed because it fills up fast.

Room Tip: You need to book your room early. My room faced towards the JR station and was still quiet even if...

Stayed 6 nights which worked out at a very reasonable (for Japan) £80 per night. Large room with kitchen facilities - used kettle and toaster on several occasions - and good size bathroom. Our room had a balcony overlooking the street. Very friendly staff and everything in the place was spotlessly clean. Laundry facilities are available in the basement which is ideal if you are staying a few days (cost around 500 yen per wash).

Although not in the central shopping/entertainment district of Kyoto (around 15-20mins walk away) the hotel is very well located to explore the city and for trips further afield to places like Nara. JR Kyoto station is around 15 minutes walk, Gojo subway station is a few steps away and the sightseeing buses stop nearby.

As for eating and drinking there are two convenience stores nearby (7/11 and Lawson), a good soba restaurant next door, Coco Japanese-style curry house (both with English menu) and hundreds of other options on the way to and around JR Kyoto station and in the central entertainment district.

Have nothing but positives to say about our stay, couldn't have been better.

we stayed here for 7 nights and must say i agree with the previous review ... its perfect in terms of convenience .. distance to many temples , stores, restaurants , 7/11 , lawsons , everything is fantastic ! best bit for me was the minute long walk to Gojo Subway Station , since my family and me are pretty much on the move during holidays and we figured the subways out quickly and went to Osaka on 2/3days from here so loved being near the subway ... even to other places in Kyoto , you can just hop in and out of the subways and its great for people traveling for work or pleasure ... all in all fabulous pick !
the staff is pretty clued in too , so their directions and help was a great advantage of staying here ! Must eat at Dongri if u stay here ... ask front desk for directions to this fabulous Japanese restaurant ... udon noodles and other yum Jap Food !!!

We stayed here for a week with other Family members who were all attending a Wedding in Kyoto. Everyone commented on how nice their rooms were and what a great location it was. We had four rooms between us.
The rooms are well equipped with a kitchenette and everything you need for eating in if you wanted to. They are spotlessly clean and serviced daily to a very high standard. The free wifi is very fast and reliable as well (a real winner with all of us!).
It is also very central and if you are into walking like we are, then there is everything you need within 10-30 minutes walk of the Hotel. If you are not into walking then cabs are plentiful and reasonably priced. Convenience stores are very close. Their is a 7/11 across the road (with ATM) and a 24hr supermarket about 2 minutes walk on the same side of the road as Citadines.
There are also plenty of places to eat within a short stroll. There is a "Family" type restaurant (Japanese food) just up the road on the other side which is very good and reasonably priced. Just make sure you ask for the "non-smoking" section unless you like nicotine with your meal.
For the unadventurous there is a McDonalds on the corner near the hotel.
You won't be disappointed with Citadines. We will definitely stay here again.
