This is an old school hotel from the entrance to the rooms – not in a good way though. All the equipment is old and should have been replaced 15 years ago. The best days of thist hotel are certanly over.

When we first entered the room, the scent/freshener was just too sweet for my liking. But I was able to just tolerate and get used to it afterwards. The comforters were too used for ages that's why there are sewn pieces and holes that are...More
This place is a find. Nothing exceptional but we weren't after that sort of place. We needed somewhere in a good location to stay the night in Kyoto, with good transport links and with a few eateries and bars nearby. Thats exactly what we got!...More
Great location near the train station, chemist, eateries and shopping mall. Wifi is free in the room but a bit scratchy. Very clean place and pleasant staff. The Rooms are basic complete with the capsule bathroom. The foyer is really nice. (Hence this and that)...More
Quiet area, cosy room and friendly staff. Room includes a wifi, TV (with limited English channels), electric kettle and some tea. Located about a 10-15 min walk from the heart of Kyoto, where you can find street performers, shopping malls, a casino, restaurants, bars and...More
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.

In front of Kyoto train station there is an information office. They will advice you exactly which bus to take. It stops maybe a minute walk away from hotel. If you'll stay longer in Kyoto I advice you to buy a day bus... More

Enjoy the city, it's wonderful.
