We stayed in a triple room for about three nights recently. The room was very small, worsened by the fact that the sofa had been stretched into a third bed. There was really very little room to move. The bathroom was also tiny. The furnishing...More
Located north of Kyoto station, the Karasuma Hotel is a good base for sightseeing as it is quite in the center of all attractions. The standard rooms are very spacious and put other japanese, but also englisch and dutch rooms to shame. Breakfast is rather...More
First of all I must say that we got this hotel half price through Expedia and that is why it has got this mark for value.
The hotel is pretty easy to find, right next to the subway station although you could walk from Kyoto...More
This hotel was booked with a Shinkasen Tour on JTB. It is just a few steps from the Shijo Stn.... Great as a base for sightseeing in Kyoto. (Tip: Purchase a One or Two Day Subway Pass). Nishiki Food Market, Major Department Stores, and Shopping...More
Got more than we expected.Hotel quite dated but unbeatable sincere service from staff at reception and excellent location along one of Kyoto's main streets- we literally walked everywhere. Doesn't hurt to have a Starbucks at the lobby. Rooms,though dated, are pretty big for Japan. If...More
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.

No they do not, or least they didn't when I was there in Oct 2016. I emailed them prior to our departure & they responded very quickly. I believe they do have a laundry service but these are not self service coin machines.
