City Centre
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

We spent four nights here, and had a great time. The staff was very helpful in providing information and assisting with travel arrangements. It's a quiet neighborhood with neat local restaurants and breakfast spots, but still close to the transit system and the attractions. The...More

It’s a small and pleasant hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. Location is quiet. Location isn’t great—hotel sits halfway between two different subway lines, but is a 20 minute walk to Teramachi or Pontocho areas. There’s a rooftop bar and a French restaurant, but...More

Hi, no idea either. In fact I looked on their site and couldn't find where it said that. However, it's a really good hotel, friendly and in a good place.
