The hotel is a no non sense business hotel, it has a 7 eleven behind the hotel and some nice restuaurants across the street and outside. The hotel is 2 mins walk to Kyoto central. The rooms are nice and clean however they are super duper tiny. I felt I was in some budget cruise ship cabin. However if small...

APA Hotels in Japan are relatively consistent. They offer a reasonable price, are clean with the typical small rooms, breakfast is a combination of Western and Japanese breakfast options. As I am not spending a lot of time in my room the hotel was a good option for my stay in Kyoto. It is pretty close to Kyoto JR Station,...

The rooms were a trifle small, but they had all the amenities for a comfortable stay. Staff were polite, hotel was spotlessly clean and the location was terrific - 5 minutes walk from Kyoto Railway Station. A great place to make your base for long stay - we stayed 4 nights. The 7-Eleven next door was very convenient.

Hotel is relatively clean, reason for this low rating is because of the bed...it's a rock! Use the onsen the next morning to relieve your back from the pain. This is not an over exaggeration...there are other places I'd recommend instead

We stayed at APA Hotel Kyoto-Eki-Horikawadori for 2 nights. The room was tiny but clean and comes with all amenities we need. The wifi, however, was surprisingly poor! We think because the hotel have many rooms and many people were using the wifi at night so it was almost impossible to use the wifi from our room (no big deal...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights just before Christmas. The hotel itself is quite nice and the staff at the reception were friendly and helpful. It's fairly conveniently located, about 5 minute walk from the station. Great spa on the top floor. The main problem was that the bed was unbelievably uncomfortable. You'd barely notice the difference...

Really small room, in fact, the smallest of any of the rooms we had in Japan. Still, it had all the standard conveniences. Bed was less than a double, so barely enough room for two people. Staff was okay. Not particularly helpful and didn't go out of their way to be friendly, but not unfriendly either. Location was pretty good,...

Again, just a place to rest your head. You're not here to stay in the rooms so remember that rooms in Japan are small and compact. The beds are hard, but we found it a good location and were simply after a place to sleep at the end of the day. Location was good, food available nearby.

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.
