Hotel was a great bargain for ease of getting to and from all the major attractions. If you arrive by train at Kyoto station, you can grab Karasuma-dori subway line to the Karasuma Oike Station (3rd stop). Exit south on Karasuma-dori and turn right at Starbucks onto Mikuracho. It is a 3 minute walk.
From the Karasuma Oike station you can also take the Oike-dori line to get to major temple destinations in either direction. Walk further south on Karasuma-dori and catch the Shijo-dori line to Kawaramachi Station. This drops you off on Kiyamachi which has tons of restaurants and bars. Pontocho one more street East is along the canal and also has good choices for dinner and drinks.
Those looking for an ATM that takes foreign cards, there is a 7 Eleven on Karasuma-dori between the Shijo Station and the hotel. About 5 a minute walk from hotel.More
