The hotel's location is great, it's really near the station, shops, restaurants and to a bicycle hire shop. The hotel room was the smallest that I have ever stayed in (Japan or the rest of the world for that matter!). No space for 2 people and a bag each. Having said that the room was clean and the hotel staff...

Reviewed 6 November 2016

Room was quite small but comfortable, not very much room if you are a tall person but otherwise everything you need really. Room was clean and tidied daily, bathroom quite small but functional. You may get a slightly bigger room if you book a twin room. Room was reasonably quiet, there was some work going on during the day outside...

This hotel was our next to last hotel on the trip and it was a 3 night stay. Let me just say from the outset, location was very good, breakfast was good and cleanliness very good. Now the down side, the double rooms are extremely small (if you intend to stay, don't have a lot of luggage) as is the...

I stayed in a single room for four nights. Negative points: - the room was really small, and arranging belongings required military precision. - TV dubbed BBC World into Japanese, though this is hardly the hotel's fault. - somewhat expensive, though having seen the number of tourists in Kyoto, I can see why. But these are greatly outweighed by the...

Brilliant location 5 minute walk to Kyoto main station and easy access to all lines. Most Japanese rooms are extremely small and this hotel was no different. Literally room for a double bed and side. Bathroom clean, is slightly expensive but good for location

Stayed here for a few days in Kyoto - was a great base for exploring the city given its proximity to the train and bus station (we arrived by train), though it was not cheap to stay here. Rooms typically small, but had all we needed. Rooms had good WiFi and a TV with BBC News 24 on it -...

If you are new to Kyoto, location of this hotel is very good! Kyoto station is just a stone's throw away. Room is small. Service is good. Counter staff speak reasonably-good English. There is a cosy cafe on ground floor-next to hotel lobby.

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.
