We stayed in an Japanese style room from 7-11 Apr 2013. The room was tiny, but clean and bath box could accommodate 1 person at the same time and hosted everything one would need (including a very short tube). Actually, Japanese style rooms might note be for everyone, because one sleeps quite hard and the body might need some nights...

If you are looking for a cheap place to stay in a great location, this is it. Don't expect anything else though. I was disappointed with the quality of the room but I guess this is what you get for a cheap rate. I chose a Japanese room which was quite spacious. You have to lay out the futons and...

The Traveler's Inn is in a great area. The Modern Museum is just across the street. Just a few minutes north of that is the Heian Shrine. Some other temple areas are a little farther away and are easily accessed by walking (but just as easy to take a bus or taxi) are: the silver temple to the northeast, Nanzenji...

I was very lucky to get a place to stay in Kyoto during the Labor Day weekend in November when it was swamped with tourists and hardly anything was available even two months before on any booking website. Otherwise the Inn would not probably be my first choice, but I don't regret staying there. It is situated in the eastern...

As the name says, it's an inn and it is not exactly like the big fancy hotels around the Kyoto Station. It is, however, many other good things: great location, friendly staff, and convenient. The Higashiyama subway station is nearby (about 10 mins walk) and the bus stop is even closer (2 mins walk!). From the hotel, visitors can either...

This is not a fancy hotel, BUT, it has a great location, an excellent staff and a very reasonable price. I originally intended to stay in Kyoto for only 3 days, but decided to add 2 more nights to my reservation after falling in love with the town. The room was fine, my view was of a canal and not...

I'm a frequent traveler to Japan and lived in Kyoto for one year. I just discovered the Kyoto Traveler's Inn and stayed there for 3 nights. I highly recommend it for its access (a short, pleasant walk along a canal to a subway station, or 20 minute walk to "downtown"), location (near the lovely Higashiyama mountains and neighborhoods of eastern...

Well placed between the two most important turistic areas ok Kyoto (south- and north-bound), Traveler's Inn is not difficult to reach. 6 metro stations from Kyoto main Station (cost 250 Yen - 2 lines, green and red), about 20 minutes, to get to Higashiyama station, than just 10 mins walking. 20 mins walking from the city River, 30 from the...

Kyoto is quite expensive and for a budget hotel the room prices are pretty high (at least according to my european standards). However it is difficult to find something cheaper in Kyoto. Having premised that, we had a wonderful experience at the Kyoto traveler's inn. We booked a traditional japanese room with tatami flooring and futons and we loved it:...

During the Hinari, the cherry blossom Sakura Festival, it's hard to find a room in Kyoto, and prices rise up in a dizzy way. Our best solution was this hotel and I like to recommend it for, among others, the following reasons: the location, almost in front of Heian Shrine, in the north-eastern part of the city; the hotel is...

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.
