Good location near subways. Tiny rooms. We called it an RV - about the same size. Not sure what AmesFL is talking about. These were the hardest beds and pillows we have ever encountered. Guess we didn't have enough Sake. Probably best for business travel....More
A nice, clean hotel. Hotel room was standard size, or slightly smaller! Room well equipped and beds comfortable. Location good for exploring Kyoto. Breakfast was standard buffet. Some staff at the reception desk don't speak English so were unable to assist us in researching activities...More
Japan must have the hardest beds on the planet and I'm not talking about sleeping on the floor. We stayed at the Via Inn a couple nights last week and were pleasantly surprised. The rooms feature all the amenities you would expect as well as...More
2 days in Kyoto to see Sakura. Since it is Sakura season, really difficult to book a hotel with good location at reasonable price.
Location: Shijo is a place to stay because it is in the middle of temples, castles, food markets. Most importantly, there...More
This hotel is really accessible from the subway Shijo station and within the walking distance from the city centre of Kyoto. The location is a main matter for myself when choosing an accommodation, so this place is very ideal, I would say. As the hotel...More

City Center / Kawaramachi / Karasuma / Shijo Omiya
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
