My friend booked a double room but when we check in i decided a twin sharing room, which i have to pay extra but there is not much choice as hotel is really expensive during sakura season and we stayed for 5 nights. The room is small, with 2-single bed there is hardly any space to walk or when you...

Close to Kyoto station. That's the only advantage. Period. Bad room. Overpriced. Crowded buffet breakfast. They did not even have a toast machine. Not worth the price. The only advantage is location. Don't go there. This hotel is a rip off

Hotel quality is low compared to others we have stayed in. We were in Kyoto during cherry blossom season, therefore hotels everywhere were booking out and expensive. This hotel is in a fantastic location, only 5 minute walk to Kyoto station - great for our numerous day trips to himeji, Osaka (x2), and to get around Kyoto via subway/train. The...

Firstly, the only positive is that it's very close to Kyoto Station. That's it. The rooms are very small (even for Japan standards) and are incredibly overpriced. They sell the rooms as big enoigh for 2 people however they'd be lucky enough to be big enough for 2 children. After our first night my partner woke up with a number...

We payed a whopping 27,000 yen per night, per double room to stay here during Sakura season and it was not a good value. The rooms are small but not abnormal except for the price. Our room design was wacky however with the TV behind the only places you could watch from and the tea/coffee set hidden behind the TV....

It's close to ths station. End of positive remarks. Reception staff don't understand English, but pretend they do, which is much worse. Nano-rooms certainly unfit for one pax, that they sell for two. Air conditioning instructions iin Japanese only. Lobby permanently crowded by luggage. Absurd prices. And so on and so on. In short: find somewhere else to stay; if...

Nice and clean rooms. Hotel well located next to Kyoto station. Easy access from the trains and plenty of restaurants around. Breakfast is very basic with limited choice. Rooms are small (Japanese style) but comfortable. Ok for a leisure trip for few days in Kyoto

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
