2017.03 OPEN! Great location away from only a minute walk from Subway Shijo staion and Hankyu Karasuma station. There are bus stops nearby, and it is good location as a starting point for sightseeing in Kyoto. The bed named "Maro" is the original brand that was codeveloped with Simmons. Together with the attentive linen and amenity, it clears the end of the day. ※From October 2018, Kyoto City has made it mandatory for guests staying at hotels in Kyoto City to pay an "Accommodation Tax". Please note that the tax is paid separately upon check-in. (Per person per night, less than 20,000 yen: 200 yen, 20,000 to 50,000 yen: 500 yen, 50,000 yen or more: 1,000 yen)

Was staying in Hotel M's Est Shijo Karasuma in Kyoto from 13-16 Jan 2020. The location is simply awesome, like 3 min walk from the 2 nearest stations, Shijo and Karasuma station & 7 mins walk to Nishiki Market. Juz so u know, there’re plenty of nice restaurants or eateries in the surrounding area. The room although small (Norm is Japan), is designed rather cozy & look pretty new too (maybe gd maintenance). I like the fact that there’re hangers in the room for us to hang clothes (which is not always available in many hotels). The bed was fine, I requested for lower pillows & my request was acceded. The AC / heater system was also working perfectly. The room was always kept clean and tidy. The staff were friendly & helpful too. The WiFi is fine too, totally no problem surfing Youtube @ all, even in the showers. Ultimately, I think this is still a gd hotel for those on a short sojourn & is looking for convenience in locations. Wld definitely come back here if I return to Kyoto!

I stayed here for 5 nights in late September. The location is great as it’s close to the local subway (2 stops from the Kyoto station). There’s plenty of cafes around for breakfast and just 1 minute away from the convenience store on the Main Street. I arrived to the hotel quite early on the day as I had a red eye flight. I managed to have lunch at 11am at the Kyoto station and head to the hotel by noon. I took a cab from the Kyoto station as I didn’t want to bother to look for it and my body is tired and aching after the flight. Cab driver dropped me off on the Main Street and I just walked 1 minute and arrived at the hotel. The fare was around 1000 yen. I was greeted by the staff and they will ask for your check-in number which was given to you via an email once you completed and paid your booking online. The staff said I’m too early as their check-in starts at 3pm and my room was not ready. So I sat on the lounge and waited. Within 30 minutes, the staff said it is ready. He was kind enough to allow me to go up slightly ahead of the check in time. (I’m quite grateful for it as I fell into deep sleep as soon as I go into the room). The room itself is on the small size, it’s impossible to lay down a 28 inches luggage flat on the floor. They replenish the complimentary bottle water everyday. They have DHC Amenities and smells quite neutral and nice. Worth mentioning about the laundry. They only have 2 washing machines and 2 dryers. So there’s constantly a queue for washing. I would suggest washing at midnight if you are a night owl. I would definitely stay here again! Friendly service and great staff!

We are a family of 4 adults and stayed at the hotel from 12-17 July 2019. The location is convenient and near to the Shijo subway station, Karasuma train station, Nishiki Market and Gion area. The rooms were clean and we had a pleasant stay. The staff were English speaking and most courteous. They were helpful in booking our dinner restaurant and checking out the available dates of the whisky brewery we had intended to visit.

I was in Japan for a 3-week vacation and stayed in multiple hotels in different cities. This by far was my BEST hotel experience! Very modern, sleek, and clean building with a super fast elevator. Small rooms are the norm in Japan, but this hotel makes creative use of the small space available. Bed was super comfortable and I loved the free water placed in my room each day by housekeeping! The location was FANTASTIC! Right around the corner from the subway and bus stop, tons of shopping and restaurants all around. I was in Kyoto for the end of the Gion Matsuri and this hotel location was in the heart of all the festivities. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I ended up canceling a stay in another Kyoto hotel so I could lengthen my stay here! And when I come back to Kyoto, I will definitely be staying here again!
