    Although the hotel look unattractive from the outside (more like hospital), the inside is very welcoming. The restaurants inside the hotel are very expensive and not really tasty. The rooms were really nice and the location not too bad. Overall a decent hotel.

    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

    that's not a good hotel to stay in. We had a similar experience when we were there last april. Staff is totally inefficient for a so-called 4 star hotel. There are better hotels nearer to kyoto station
