The hotel is in a busy location - near covered shopping and lots of restaurants. Our room was a good size (upgraded room) and was comfortable and quiet for sleeping. The front desk staff were very helpful with arranging luggage forwarding, taxi, etc. Every day...More
The hotel is in the center of the city, surrounded by restaurant and shops. Gion, and Pontocho are in walking distance.
Rooms are clean and larger than usual business hotels in Japan (although not as large as hotels in other countries are).
Stayed for a week, in Vista Premio hotel.
The location is excellent, walking distance to Gion, Yasaka Jinja, Ponto-cho... Bus station is just 1 minute walk from the door. Buses are the most used transport for tourism so it makes it very easy. Also Sanjo...More

Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall
windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.
There is a direct bus from from Kyoto station to the hotel, 10-15 minutes with normal traffic but 30 minutes or more in rush hour. You can also use the subway (3 stations with the Karasuma line (green line) to station... More
There is a direct bus from from Kyoto station to the hotel, 10-15 minutes with normal traffic but 30 minutes or more in rush hour. You can also use the subway (3 stations with the Karasuma line (green line) to station K08-Karasuma Oike, change here to the Tozai line (red line) and one more station to T12- Kyoto Shiyakusho-mae. There are escalators and elevators in the subway stations, so very easy with luggage. From Shiyakusho-mae it is a 3 minutes walk to the hotel, comfortable also in rain since the pedestrian way of Kawaramachi Dori is under a roof. In Shiyakusho-mae you should take the south exit to Kawaramachi Dori (marked properly with signs like everything in Japan).
