It is situated near 2 train lines (direct lines to Osaka) and in between 3 stations. 5 minutes walk to Gion and Kyoto Cross. 10 minutes walk to National Museum. Very central to get the best of both worlds - city life and suburbia Kyoto. The room is not small as it can fit 2 pax comfortably.

Location is excellent, staff is friendly, room is cozy. B hotel is a good hotel chain size offering quality at an affordable price. There's also sentos nearby if you feel like trying the experience. The only downside is the bathroom size but you can live with that for few days.

We moved to the B Kyoto Sanjo for ten nights when our AirBnB was unacceptably appointed. Whew! The B Kyoto is nicely appointed with good work space, comfortable beds and very friendly and helpful staff. A great location too, a few steps from the subway station! We were very satisfied!

This is small hotel, looks quite new, and very clean. Guests can have free coffee from the espresso machine in the lobby, available throughout the day, which is a nice, hospitable touch. Location is ok, convenience store right beside it with eating places a few steps away and a major supermarket open 24 hours within 15 minutes walk. By Japanese...

As most Japanese hotels, the room is small, but a decent size in comparison. Amenities were great and everything worked well in the room. Staff were friendly and always helpful.

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
