Before I say anything, I want to mention that the people who own and run this hotel are good people, and that I do not wish to belittle their efforts.
First: breakfast. Do not expect much in the way of that. Some pastries, drinks, cereal,...More
Me and my family stayed there in July, it was a really good experiencie, the people who working there was very friendly and speaks really good english, so they were really helpful with everything we needed. And it is really near the principal train station.

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.
