Kyoto hotels are much more expensive than Osaka. We opted to save on lodgings (so wr can eat) hence we stayed here. It did it purpose; we slept ok but nothing else. Location was quite unstrategic. But to our surprise, amenities (yukata, towel, soap) are...More

The room is very small but this is normal Japanese standard. The futon beds were very clean and comfortable. The service was very bad thought. They did not clean the room and we had to ask for toilet paper.

We stayed both here and in kawaramachi, and we like Inoi-no-ie better. It is still centrally located, and just about 10-15 mins walk to Kyoto Station (great weather!), but not so chaotic and busy. It is tucked in so you can get lost, but once...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
