We stayed here one night but honestly wanted to stay for longer. The staff were very helpful and friendly assisting with food options and touring ideas. The room was quite large for Japanese standards and great bathroom. There were two things that really made this hotel exceptional: 1. The mattress and pillows - they were memory foam and gave me...

Room was modern and clean, was much more than we expected for what we paid. They are small rooms but you could still get 2 suitcases in if you need. Staff were helpful, you can also buy the 1 day bus pass at concierge which was handy. Location was great too. Only thing that could use improvement is the buffet...

The location is great and the hotel is very clean, with multiple buses just at the gate which has access to all major tourist locations. Also walking distance from Kiyamizu area across the river. The rooms are small but has all the necessaries. Would stay here again!

Just on the bus route (No.4, 17, or 205 ) from JR KYOTO Stn. A2 Bus stop to Kawaramachi-Gojyo. You can walk from Shijyo Street (Kawaramachi, Karasuma, Gion ), takes about 10-15 minute. Room is clean with spotless carpet and bed linen and a little spacious than other newer hotel. I would have prised 5stars if they have turn over,...

I was pleasantly surprised by this establishment. Fairly decent room size considering that this is a big city in Japan. As expected of a Japanese business hotel, things work well. Just a minor gripe. Check in time is very strict. Hope they can let loose a bit about it.

It is a decent room in downtown Kyoto. Perfect spot to discover the city. Several buslines stop in front of the hotel. You can easily walk to many restaurants in the neighbourhood. Room itself was clean, small bad (and bed) and aircon was working. Staff is friendly and many speak good english.

Sunroute Hotel is located relatively close to a subway station, making it convenient to get around. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We booked a wrong date, but they were happy to bring it forward for us. The room was large and spacious in terms of Japanese standards. A massage chair was even available! Gion district is well within a...

We stayed here for 4 nights during or Japan trip. The hotel is in a good location, very close to the city centre and many of the sights.

Sunroute was a well-located hotel for our first two nights in Kyoto (we moved to a ryokan after this to experience something more traditional). We were able to access several sights on foot, and trains were not too far to reach when going further afield. Likewise, taxis are easy enough to get from the main road, provided it's not peak...

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.
