Neighbourhood
Shimogyo-ku
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.

飯店房間舒適,交通便利,從京都車站走路不到10分鐘即可到旅館,若有大件行李,也可選擇搭乘飯店免費接駁車(15分鐘一班)。房間的空間很寬敞,設備很齊全,每天都會提供房客一人一瓶礦泉水,早上和下午都會提供當地報紙(雖然都是日文,看不懂😂)。每日房間都打掃的很乾淨,房間附贈的免費茶包非常好喝,好喝到我跑去飯店一樓的商品部買了一盒回家,飯店的商品部也非常好逛,第一次在飯店商品部買了那麼多東西😅。非常推薦的一間飯店,希望可以一直維持一樣的品質,有機會再訪京都,我應該還會再來入住。More
