After staying at Shinjuku Citadines during the 1st leg of our vacation, I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Citadines in Kyoto was different from the TK one.

We booked the Citadines for a week-long vacation and enjoyed our stay here for all the right reasons. Located about 5 minutes from Kyoto's main train station by taxi, the hotel is right by the main road, giving easy access to Kyoto's clean, efficient and friendly taxis. If taxis aren't your thing, the Subway is just a 2-minute walk from...

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
