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.

Thank you for staying with us here APA HOTEL〈kyotoeki-horikawadori〉and your kind review. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
The onsen at the hotel is indeed gender separated. clothing is not allowed, nor are tattoos. Did not see any monitoring, but I must say that the hotel is pretty strict about customers following onsen ethics/rules.
