No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

I booked a executive deluxe room (36sqm) and the bookingoffice stuck me in a 28sqm room (superior). My first telephon complaint was answered with "that is all OK". Only when I went directly to the frontdesk they graciously gave me another room. I felt cheated.
When I think of this hotel, I remember the fantastic view of the hills of Kyoto... our room was facing North and had a huge window; we could see several temples in the distance! Awesome! Our room was really large, which worked great for our...More
Very spacious room compare to normal Japanese hotel. Large hotel with long history. Convenient transportation by hotel shuttle bus from Kyoto station but need to check with station information for pick-up point because scale of the station can make you easily lost.
