My family of three visited this hotel during our brief stay in Kyoto. While the hotel itself was small, I had high hopes for it to be quaint and homey. Inside our room, we had to put an extra bed and essentially there was no room left for anything else. For those with large luggages, I would not recommend. Another... More

Dear Mr./Mrs. stars2, Thank you very much for reviewing on our hotel. We are really sorry for the inconveniences because of the small room and some noises.

The Kyoto Tower Hotel Annex was a decent western style hotel. The location is really close to the main Kyoto Station and Kyoto Tower, so the Hotel is very convenient for using public transportation and local sightseeing. When booking the hotel, they didn’t have any rooms that could hold 5 people, so we ended up getting two rooms. One with... More

Though it's no luxury hotel, Kyoto Tower Hotel Annex is a nice hotel conveniently located near the beautiful Kyoto station.

This is "associated" with the Kyoto Tower Hotel, but is really an "annex" about 400 meters away on a side street. In a faded yellow block building that looks like something built in communist Russia, this ancient place is about two decades short of a renovation. The rooms are small (as normal in Japan) and perhaps not as bad in... More

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.
