Good location, near to subway and only one stop away from the shopping district. Top floor also has a automated laundrette, which is a godsend for travellers that need clean clothes. Only let down by a bland breakfast selection. But still pretty good.

Clean and comfortable - small rooms. The hotel is walking distance to station and Gion and Nishi Honganji temple. Staff were helpful and organised takkyubin for us to forward our luggage to next stop while we were hiking.

If you're looking for up-market glamour, or baseline economy this hotel is neither. It's a decent, mid-range hotel with friendly, courteous staff. Breakfast was incldued with our booking, and it was actually pretty decent. If you arrive early you can get a table to yourself in the main resturant. We visited during peak bloosom season so the hotel was brimming,...

Traveled as a couple. Rooms are super super tiny so that we could not lay our suitcases on the ground. They charge ¥1700 for breakfast (7:30-9:30) - we went to have breakfast at 08:30 and the whole buffet was empty. They were not even refilling!!! I asked them that everything is empty and there is nothing to eat - but...

The Aranvert Hotel is a very good hotel with staff that go out of their way to help you. The guest rooms are attractive and larger than most Japanese hotel rooms.

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.
