Less than 10 minutes from the main shopping street, the food market, bus routes and the nearest underground and within walking distance of Gion, this was a good place to stay. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and a washing machine and tumble...More
This was a good find as it was right in the heart of the shopping district and central to the buses and underground. We had Japanese style family room for 3 which worked out very well. The staff were accommodating and helpful and the hotel...More
The staff at this hotel was great, helpful and friendly. But my travel agent suggested that I stay at the Japanese style room. I am glad I experienced it but would not use again. The bedding was fine and I slept well but the constant...More

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.

Yes, our bedroom had a private bath, with large shower. There is a seven eleven (convenience store/supermarket) two blocks from the hotel, and a metro station three blocks from the hotel. The location is very good in this respect. The Kyoto train station is not within walking distance, but the metro takes you there (second stop), or a cab ride (cost you around $15).
