I had a twin size Japanese style room - it is pretty small, with a shower in the corner of the room and the bathroom (toilet). The bed is a raised platform with two twin mattresses, sheets and comforters. I picked this place because I was looking for an affordable hotel for a solo trip. The hotel is a 10-minute...

We stayed for 3 nights and everything was perfect. The room was perfect, we had everything we need. The staff was helpful and pleasant. The location is perfect, close to the station. They have a common kitchen that allows you to have breakfast before you go. Everything was great! Thanks!

The best place we stayed on our trip! Check in was great, the front desk staff walked us through a map of the surrounding areas including food suggestions and bus locations. We stayed in a Ryokan Ensuite room. The rooms are so clean and comfortable. (The bedding was so fluffy and warm!) Showers (although tiny) were fancy and also very...

Everyone on the staff is very helpful and pleasant. They offer very good advice on how to get around the city. The common kitchen area allows one to meet people from all over. The ryokan is quite close to the train station, shops and a grocery store. Two temples are also in the area. We very much enjoyed our stay...

Very good hotel, the member of staff on the front desk has excellent English and provided us with details of the sites/buses to get on etc. Room was small but we expected this and wanted a traditional Ryokan-type room for our stay. It's located near the train station and near the Kyoto Tower/shops/bars in and around the city centre!

Perfect location, best helpful and friendly staff, clean and well appointed - everything you would want and need! We had a private room and we were very impressed of how everything was put together. It may be small for other country's standards but it was perfect for us.

Just like what other reviews stated, this is a really excellent accommodation and I will certainly recommend it to others. My experience there is fairly the same as what other reviewers had shared. It was awesome! Although it's a walking distance from the train station, I think it is considered relatively far, and not really easy locate it. I did...

It is walking distance to Kyoto Station although I had trouble finding it at first (I took the wrong exit). I arrived earlier than the check-in time but I was lucky that my capsule was already cleaned when I arrived so I was able to check in immediately. My tatami capsule is comfortable, I'm just bothered with the sound of...

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
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.
