Modern hotel in good location for sightseeing. Refurbished rooms are very good indeed, we had one on 8th floor overlooking the temple. The staff were excellent and the breakfast the best we had in our trip. The shuttle bus back and forth from the station was invaluable.

One very useful point in favour of this hotel is the free shuttle bus to the airport which runes every 15minutes for most of the day, 30 minutes at less popular times. The station has so much more than trains, with many shops and restaurants and good views from the skywalk. The hotel rooms are larger than in many Japanese...

Stayed for 3 nights here as part of tour and really loved the hotel - it was smart, modern, in a great location with bus stop nearby and only 5/10 minutes' ride to the station on the frequent, free hotel shuttle. All the staff were lovely and the rooms were much bigger than expected, with all modern conveniences - including...

My family of four stayed here for six nights. We wanted to stay in a Hilton or Four Season but they were all booked. This hotel caters mostly to Asians but there were a few Americans staying there while we were there. We stayed in one large room with four beds. The only people who speak English are the front...

We decided to visit Kyoto last minute to see the Cherry Blossoms in full bloom and our travel agent found this hotel. We liked the location as it is in the center of Kyoto and enabled us over 5 nights to do day trips to Nara and Osaka besides seeing Eastern, Southern and Western Kyoto over 3 days. When we...

This hotel was part of the bullet train and hotel Kyoto package. It's a very nice hotel with non-smoking rooms available. There is no pool, but there is a workout facility, if you still have the energy after exploring Kyoto for the day. It's in a great location and the hotel offers a free shuttle service every 20 minutes to...

We stayed here for 3 nights. The room cleanliness is much to be desired and is surprisingly low against the usual high standards found elsewhere in Japan. We booked ourselves into a non smoking room. Unfortunately, despite the non smoking signs on each room door on our floor, our floor smells like an ashtray...reeking of stale cigarette smoke. Worst yet,...

Hotel looks good from the outside and even impressive as you enter and go down to the reception area. However, the rooms are small and even though ours was meant to be a non-smoking room it smelt like an ashtray. Rooms are tired with staining on carpet. Bathroom has obviously been cheaply refitted at some stage as you now have...

Most people aren't coming to Kyoto for the hotel. What they want is somewhere comfortable, clean and convenient to explore this beautiful city. I would recommend staying here. Likes: - Modern and well laid out, the rooms are clean and bright. - There's a regular daytime shuttle-bus to and from Kyoto train station. (The hotel isn't within walking distance. Otherwise...

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.
