This was my third stay at this hotel, as part of a Sunrise Tour.
Our twin-room (3226) on the 12th floor overlooked the busy Karasuma dori. I anticipated (correctly) that the room would be too hot so at check-in asked for the large window to...More
English - the staff spoke some english and was able to communicate. Very accomodating.
Internet - this is a joke, there are two computers located in the lobby with Japanese Windows and a Japanese keyboard. If you need to print anything, you need to go...More
My wife and I stayed here one night as part of an overnight do-it-yourself tour package from Sunrise Tours that included a round trip bullet train trip from Tokyo to Kyoto and back. This hotel was the one that came with the cheapest package, so...More
The Karasuma is very well located for travellers to Kyoto, with a subway station steps away from the front door, and a couple of blocks away from Kyoto's main shopping district. The Starbucks in the lobby is also helpful for breakfasts, and provides a well-attended...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.

No they do not, or least they didn't when I was there in Oct 2016. I emailed them prior to our departure & they responded very quickly. I believe they do have a laundry service but these are not self service coin machines.
