1st of all, locating the hotel is really easy. Located right opposite to Yamashina station. Hotel room is clean and spacious compared to the rest of my stay in Japan. It is just a station away from Kyoto station, which is the main station that connects you to the rest of the tourist attractions. Lots of restaurants & shops around...

Had I know that this was not in Kyoto city proper but in Yamashina- which is in the south east side of Kyoto & one has to take the JR everytime to get there I would never have booked this hotel. It has a shabby old look & I cannot believe some of the reviews that say "it is a...

The twin room good enough space. Breakfast buffet had sufficient variety. Right beside subway, JR station and Keihan station and subway line included in coverage of two day Kyoto pass. Loved that they had a grand bath (similar to an onsen) to soak in. They had no wifi in the room though.

The Hotel Brighton is one five minute train stop from Kyoto with a frequent train service available. Train station is literally across the road from the station and there is an underground walkway to it from the station. The rooms were quite small but reasonable for Japan. Many eating establishments in close proximity and a supermarket on the bottom level...

Yamashina is the next JR station from Kyoto and from the station, it takes only few minutes to reach the hotel. I stayed in a smoking room as it is cheaper than smoking but it did not smell at all as somebody claimed. It has a free public bath but during weekdays priority is given to ladies so men can...

Good location right across from the train station (this include the JR, rail and subway stations) which make it easy access to Kyoto's main train station and any attractions. There is an underpass which will link the hotel (lift to B1) to the station. As usual, Japan hotel will not allow you to do early check-in even if the room...

We weren't in our room much for our trip to Kyoto because we wanted to explore the city but this hotel was a great location. Most hotels in the middle of Kyoto are pretty pricey but this spot was a good value and right across from the train station which was only one stop (5 mins) from Kyoto's main train...

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
