Stayed there 10 yrs ago, and still a great place to stayl. Right accross from the Palace gardens ( very relaxing area)-Hotel is a few minutes walk from the subway station. Bus stop near by to go sightseeing the temples,etc - If a 'walker' a nice walk to the Nishiki market, the Nijo castle and many other places of interest....

The small size of the room came at no surprise but the undersized and rock hard single bed was too much to swallow. Also one shouldn't expect any luxurious room amenities such as power outlets, more than one pillow or walls with no stains. To add insult to injury they charge 500Y for a small cup of black coffee at...

We always stay here whenever we visit Kyoto. Their price is great and people are super nice. They even have share kitchen and spaces to meet new people. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant is tasty too.

Stayed for three nights. Price was right and location okay. Room is comfortable and clean. Breakfast is Japanese-Western and sufficient. Lunches and dinners were available and adequate. Staff were very helpful. The hotel shows its age but remains a good choice in Kyoto.

The staff were friendly and very helpful. The room I wanted was not available for all of my stay but the staff accommodated me so I spent the first 2 nights in one room and the rest of the stay in the, cheaper, room I had originally wanted. The rooms were clean and well presented. The location is ideal, and...

Front desk and hotel staff were very warm and welcoming. They spoke a variety of languages (depending on the staff) and were more than helpful when we needed guidance, recommendations and directions. Location is excellent in Kyoto. It is near to a subway station, and a short walk to multiple bus stops that take you to almost all the prominent...

Looks nice from ground level. Very well located. Very nice and open reception service. But the rooms are terribly slow and not clean. Toilet small and looks like toilet in RV. I do not come back there again.

If you are looking for a budget hotel in central Kyoto, this is a good option. The location is 3 minutes from many buses and a metro station. Rooms are small but very clean and the shower is good though there are issues with its ventilation. Breakfast has both basic Western and Japanese options. When there is a group, places...

Clean, functional, small kitchen, English speaking staff, laundry facilities and great value. As most hotel rooms in Japan it is small but unless you are living in the hotel, who cares? We stayed for 2 1/2 weeks and found it a good central location, right next to a major subway station and all the major bus lines also cross the...

Staying in Nishijin District

Neighbourhood Profile
Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.
