Not far from main station and extremely close to Shijo metro station. Rooms are compact and clean, staff helpful. Good breakfast with lots of options. Plenty of good restaurants around and close to Gion district for more nightlife.
Very adequate hotel for a few days to explore Kyoto. Close to Kyoto station without paying higher hotel prices next to it. Compact room, but efficient use of space as with typical Japanese hotels. Would recommend as a good value for area.
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.
