We were lucky to find rooms in this hotel--Kyoto had many events and most of the reputable hotels were completely booked. However, we didn't settle--the rooms were extremely comfortable and having the little kitchenette was so nice and convenient. We were able to bring back some food and heat it up in the microwave. Hotel rooms used to have microwaves...

My daughter and I stayed at Citidines for 3 nights and we extremely pleased with the facility. Spacious by Japan standards, very clean (including no smoke smell), located right next to the subway, many nice restaurants nearby, free fast internet, inexpensive laundry facility and the staff was excellent including their English capability....Great value for money. What else could one ask...

Hotel is near Goji subway station (one station from Kyoto station) or in 15 min walk from Kyoto JR station. Rooms are comfortable and equipped by small kitchen. Staff is well-skilled. Reservation is very simple. Room rates are not high. I recommend this hotel for families (including children) who want to stay in Kyoto for several days as well as...

The hotel is located next to the subway station "Gojo", one stop from the railway station. Going there by foot is approx. 15 minutes if you want to save money. Public transportation in Kyoto is rather good, but some tourist sites are a bit hard to access because far from the city center. All in all, the location was good...

The location of this hotel was great - less than a 5 minute walk from the metro station and a 100 yen taxi ride into Central Kyoto. The rooms were clean and having a kitchenette really made things easier in the morning because we have breakfast in our room before heading out. The staff were extremely helpful and gave very...

We had a comfortable stay at the Citadines in Kyoto for two nights earlier this month. The hotel is well located pretty much in the centre of many of the places you will want to visit. It is fairly near the station (one stop on the subway), but it's not the older part of town so surrounded by uninspiring buildings....

Good room size, very clean and good customer service. Close to the GOJO subway station but with all tired from many days of walking, this close to Gojo subway station seems no benefit to me. Because all tourist spots are good by walk, bus, bike or need to use another subway line which again need to walk a bit further....

Citadines is conveniently located - only a 10/15 minute walk from the train station, and even quicker by cab. The rooms are nice, well set out and have everything you need for a nice few days. They also have an onsite launderette which was invaluable after a week on the road! I wouldn't bother with breakfast - it's pretty Spartan...

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.
