The hotel surprised us with its luxurious rooms at very affordable prices (we paid about 50 euros for a single and 70 euros for a double) and about 300 m from Kyoto Station (next to a Lawson convenience store). Staff was friendly and efficient. The rooms were big and clean with comfortable and soft beds, and equipped with a cooker... More

Traveling for so many years, I was hesitating to book this hotel close to a metro station! Arriving in Kyoto by the Shinkansen and very glad that I booked this hotel just less than five minutes’ walk. The station is one of the country's largest buildings, incorporating a shopping mall, hotel, movie theater, Isetan department store, and several local government... More

I stayed here for two nights in June 2014. Great location, 2 minutes walk from Kyoto Station. Very nice room. Great spa, when you come back after a day's walk, the hotspring is a great relief. And they offer free ramen at night. Highly recommended.

This hotel is a short walk from Kyoto train station, making it the perfect base from which to explore Kyoto. A lot of Kyoto's sights are right on the edge of town, so being close to the transport 'hub' is great. Also fantastic if you're arriving in Kyoto by the shinkansen. The rooms are small by Western standards, but fine... More

Very close to the train station and to take the city bus (5 min walk). Good hotel. Although the room was not big (like it´s usual in japan), the bathroom was good and the shower was quite large. In general, i would recommed it

I have always like Dormy Inn hotel chains as despite small rooms, they are clean and equipped with onsen. I must say Dormy Inn Premium Kyoto Ekimae is one of the best I've come across as hotel is conveniently located near Kyoto station, serves a great breakfast selection and has a rooftop onsen. The hotel also provide 2 bottles of... More

The hotel is just a 5 minute walk from Kyoto station, which is great for getting around since there is a bus terminal and subway stop as well. The usual Dormy inn perks are there as well - rooftop onsen and free ramen supper. The room is nicely partitioned into the sleeping area and bathroom/closet, so the air-con cools the... More

This nice hotel has almost everything a non-Japanese would want. When we came back late fro visiting friends we were invited to have free noodles. This hotel has a public bath which was delightful.

We had a small but well designed room (not too much bigger than a cruise ship cabin). The decor was a little dark for me but tastefully done. The room was well appointed and very clean.

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
