Great location, just a 100 yard walk from the train station (which you'll use a LOT) and also very close to a 7-11 (which will become your biggest friend. So easy to eat there!)
Anymore, I always try to get a hotel close to a...More
The lobby area isn't as inviting as most other places we stayed at, but just know that it doesn't reflect how nice the rooms are. The front desk staff were very friendly. We were told that if we lose the room key, it would cost...More
The hotel is ideally situated, located close to both bus & subway routes. Rooms are very clean & tidy & reception staff are extremely helpful, giving assistance in route planning to various local sights, providing ice for use in the room and a pleasure to...More
This is a fantastic location to get around Kyoto. From Kyoto station just get the Karasuma Line towards Kokusaikaikan and it only takes 5 minutes or so to Shijo station. From Shijo station depending from where you exit it is only 5 or 10 minute...More
My friend and I had booked this hotel approximately 4 months ago and confirmed it with credit card details.

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.
Hi Carmen - I recall an underground car park near the entrance (or it may be something else, completely!). However, I did notice at least 3 car parks in the immediate neighborhood. What I also observed was that the parking... More
Hi Carmen - I recall an underground car park near the entrance (or it may be something else, completely!). However, I did notice at least 3 car parks in the immediate neighborhood. What I also observed was that the parking charges were well below Tokyo standards :)
Hope this helps. Have a great trip!
