The checking in was very smooth and the staff well trained. The room was great and the breakfast was even greater. The hotel had a courtesy vehicle running every 15 minuets. I recommend this hotel to anyone
Stayed from 16 to 23 september. The hotel was renewed so it was very stylish, always clean, very comfortable and in a very good location. The staff were also wonderful helping in everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this hotel.More

The title says it all. We stayed 2 nights in Rhiga Royal and had a terrible experience. First night, we came back to our room and almost slipped and fell on a huge puddle of water that had leaked from the hot water pipe in...More
Excellent buffet breakfast. Small but very comfortable room. Plenty of restaurants in the hotel. Nice toiletries. Free WiFi in room. Very accommodating front desk, bell hop, chambermaid, and all friendly workers. If we return to Kyoto, we would have no problem staying here again.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
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.

If you don’t have heavy luggage it’s good to walk to familiarize yourself with the area. The hotel is not that far from the station but you’ll have to cross a one main road which is in front of the hotel. Otherwise, yes the answers below from others were right about the free shuttle bus. Enjoy and have fun in Kyoto!
