The location is great and the hotel is very clean, with multiple buses just at the gate which has access to all major tourist locations. Also walking distance from Kiyamizu area across the river.

Just on the bus route (No.4, 17, or 205 ) from JR KYOTO Stn. A2 Bus stop to Kawaramachi-Gojyo. You can walk from Shijyo Street (Kawaramachi, Karasuma, Gion ), takes about 10-15 minute. Room is clean with spotless carpet and bed linen and a little...More
I was pleasantly surprised by this establishment. Fairly decent room size considering that this is a big city in Japan. As expected of a Japanese business hotel, things work well. Just a minor gripe. Check in time is very strict. Hope they can let loose...More
It is a decent room in downtown Kyoto. Perfect spot to discover the city. Several buslines stop in front of the hotel. You can easily walk to many restaurants in the neighbourhood. Room itself was clean, small bad (and bed) and aircon was working. Staff...More
The hotel is wonderful! The receptionists are really friendly and they help you for everything! The duble room was big,clean, tidy and u have every day free water! There is the laundry and is very convenient! I recommend absolutely this hotel!
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.

Sorry, did not fly in Japan - used their brilliant rail system which was great fun. The trains are very fast, always on time, immaculate and they only sell tickets with an allotted seat so none of that standing room only... More
Sorry, did not fly in Japan - used their brilliant rail system which was great fun. The trains are very fast, always on time, immaculate and they only sell tickets with an allotted seat so none of that standing room only. Try it, quicker and more fun than flying.
