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.

It was February, 2019, when I stopped in this hotel. The hotel is notable for excellent location (about 8-10 minutes of slow walking from Kyoto station) and an onsen at the top floor. The staff at the reception was traditionally affable and spoke absolutely understandable

Thank you for staying at our hotel. The hotel is about 6 minutes on foot from Kyoto Station, so you can easily walk and arrive with big baggage. And since the top floor is on the 11th floor, you can enjoy the scenery in Kyoto where the view is nice. There is a public bath on the 11th floor, and there is sauna and outdoor bath there. Our hotel has English speaking staff. If you can not speak Japanese, you can stay safely. We are making our hotel rooms small. Because it is more environmentally friendly because it can adjust air conditioning more efficiently. And you can operate various things with small movements, making it easy to do something even if you are lying on the bed. In our hotel room, bed, table, TV, various amenities are installed. The table has enough space to hold a laptop computer, so it can be connected to a LAN cable or Free WiFi. Inside the hotel, you can connect to WiFi freely anywhere. Soundproofing in the room may not be enough, but it is made to think about sleep. However, I am very sorry that the cleaning staff did not keep time. We promise to quite quiet when they act. Also, when cooperating with ecology cleaning, we will not forget to give free water as gifts. Condensate of water in the window of the room appears when the temperature is greatly different inside and outside the room. Because humidity is high in Japan, the season is likely to occur in summer and winter. Please be assured that the phenomenon is natural. However, please be careful as it may get wet if you place things near the window. Currently, our hotel is renovating. This construction is due to be completed around July 2019. In the meantime, with the old room and the new room mixed, we are sorry for the inconvenience to our customers. I would be happy if you visit the reborn hotel again. Thank you for writing this report as you might be busy. Let's meet again in Kyoto. Best regards

Within walking distance of Kyoto station so it's very convenient. As per most Japanese city hotels in this price range the rooms are tiny, ok for single travellers but no room to move if there are 2 of you with luggage. Despite the limited floor space there's a big bed, 32" flat
