Dozen ryokan is centrally located, an easy five minute walk from Kyoto station. We were greeted by friendly staff who spoke English well and gave us plenty of helpful information. Our room was spacious, if a little dark. While we shared the bathroom facilities, they...More
The hotel is close enough to Kyoto Station to be very convenient (a 10 minute walk away), and far away enough to avoid the crowds and noise. It's a very simple property, but full of little quaint details. The room is traditional (tatamis, low table,...More
We decided to stay at this accommodation as we had walked past it the previous week and liked what we saw.
Booking was easy via email and check-in was efficient.

We just spend 5 nights in this Ryokan and everything was perfect. The English of the personal was really good and helpful. Close to the Station, we practically walk to almost every point of Kyoto from the Ryokan.
We will come back!

Japan > Kinki > Kyoto Prefecture > Kyoto > Shimogyo-ku
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.
