Went for honey moon and don't remember price per night however was located in the center but the street didn't have anything to do. We will have to walk or catch the shuttle bus if you want to do something! Inside the hotel good facilities, nice views and quiet.

You walk in to a very classy 4 star lobby, but the rooms themselves are small, stains all over carpet and walls and the bathroom is a giant modular box that they must have put in as an after thought to "update" the bathrooms. It felt like a prefab bathroom out of a trailer, and a cheap one at that.... More

This hotel is in an excellent location and is an easy 10 to 15 minute walk away from the station area where there are lots of reasonably priced restaurants.

The lobby looks 5 star but rooms are three. Small bathroom, average rooms stains on the floor and not really close to anything. Shuttle bus doesn't start till 8.20am so getting an early start to beat the crowds sightseeing made it hard, had to cab it, as too far to walk. You will need buses or trains to sightsee so... More

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.

The hotel's contemporary interpretation of traditional Kyoto values has earned the Kyoto Scenic Beauty Award, as well as the BCS Awards for excellence in modern architecture. From the impressive main entrance, and the courtyard water feature recreating the simple purity of the city's Horikawa River, the atmosphere of quiet composure communicates a sense of calm and relaxation to every guest. ... more   less
