The location is very convenient though not exactly close to Kyoto station, around 15mins on foot or take one stop by subway. I like there is a 24hrs supermarket nearby which is very nice. The hotel room is cozy and room size is quite good. Staffs are very friendly and gcan speak good English. There is also a parking area...

Good location for visiting the main sites, however it lacks something. Staff will help with your questions but will sometimes ignore u when entering (very rare in Japan). Breakfast was really simple - would def recommend going elsewhere. Rooms are ok but they feel a bit budgety - stayed at Hayat the last night that was really what you'd expect...

It is a typical studio apartment with a fridge and usable living area. Clean, functional but the breakfast was offensive and poor quality. If we had known what the food was going to be like we would have bought our own or just paid for the room. We have had so much spectacular Japanese food for breakfast, but this place...

Citadines hotels are great. This one in Kyoto is up there with the best, great staff, helpful and friendly. The room was excellent and had all the little extra's. Breakfast was good as well. Situated in a good part of the City for most things.

This apartment was convenient and difficult to fault. Good: Very close to the Gojo station (Karasuma line) which was handy, clean, modern, efficient helpful service, reasonably priced, cool entrance/lobby area, small kitchenette for simple food preparation, 500 yen breakfast Disadvantage: Theonly thing is that there isn't much to see or do in the immediate vicinity of the apartment. However since...

Thank you citadines for a great stay. In particular thank you Akari, you were absolutely the best host one could hope for when staying abroad. Genuinely friendly and always wanting to help, not just willing. We have stayed all around the world in absolute luxury and in value for money places.

Good location, good prices, in a way typical of Japan, even by no means "traditional" (let alone charming!). Very good shower, modest breakfasts, rather on the "quantitative" side. The right choice for one or two nights, maybe rooms are too small for longer stays. I would probably go for a Ryokan next time.

We stayed in this clean and comfortable apartment hotel. The rooms were not that big, but everything is well planned so the space is well utilised. The room and the area are quiet and bed is comfortable. It is close by to a metro station, so it is easy to explore Kyoto from here. The staff was friendly. The hotel...

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.
