Clean, very good internet connection? Friendly staff who even though may not speak english are courteous and make you feel at home. Loved the old lady waitresses in the restaurant. Room was very small though but fancy toilet. A walking distance from Kyoto station. 2nd floor has wide array of vending machines if you are hungry in the middle of...

In a foreign land, what more you want, a decent hotel centrally located or I would say aptly located, English speaking staff, clean nice hotel. It only adds to the whole enjoyable experience of Japan and Kyoto.

The hotel has a very convenient shuttle bus to and from Kyoto Station, which is handy for travels. The room itself had adequate amenities but was small. Boiling water for two people was somewhat difficult because the boiling pot in the room was enough for 1.5 cups of water at most. The bed was comfortable and we loved the charcoal...

We visit Kyoto on December 2015. We stayed in Kyoto Daiichi Hotel for several nights. It's a small room, but since we only bring one backpack, it did not matter. But, my mother and my sister in the other room had no sufficient room for their big baggage. And it's also hot! So it was kind of frustrating for us...

After a mix up in our planning we needed a room in Kyoto for two nights and the owner of our previous onsen booked us here. For the price we had low expectations but were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are tiny, but very clean and well planned so contained everything you need. Transport provided from Kyoto railway. Definitely recommend if...

Room - very small but still has a small bath tub in our non-smoking room. Hardly aircon, so we open the window to cool the room. Bed small, no baggage area esp both of us each has 24inch baggage. There is a mini fringe, mini electric cup for boiling water. Good quality shampoo, conditioner and shower gel - Pola. Wifi...

A budget hotel which is quite central, and only a couple of minutes away from the nearest metro station, and around 10 minutes walk to Kyoto station. The hotel offers a free shuttle bus every few minutes to the station which is very convenient, especially if you are travelling with luggages. The hotel room was clean, had all the amenities...

Not a bad hotel for a short stay. The room was quite small but it's not like you visit a city to spend all day in the hotel! There is no wifi in the room, only in the lobby. The staff speak English and are very friendly. The more convenient thing about this hotel is that there is a frequent...

Decent 7-level hotel located about half km directly south of Kyoto Station (10 minute walk). Friendly staff; English skills vary greatly depending on staff member. They will go to great lengths to help. To get free in-room Wi-Fi, ask for it and they will give you a router to plug into the LAN cable that is in the room. Minimal...

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.
