We are lucky enough to have our friend being a member of the Society to take advantage of reasonable rate to stay here which is close to the center of Kyoto downtown area. It has a great view of kamogawa river and a walking distance to the popular bakery to have breakfast(shinshindo). If you like to visit the oldest tea shop(ippodo), it's just around the corner, too. After a long walk all day, it is awesome to go down to soak yourself in a hot tub. I'm not sure if you can book this hotel without friends referral, but we definitely recommend it! I suggest getting the japanese room with futons on a tatami room! More

Apart from the garden access to the kamogawa (river) this place was rather disappointing.
There is no atmosphere, wifi onlyin ffoyer and the so called kaeseki dinner was mass produced and very unoriginal.
Look elsewhere.

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
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.
