    Matsubaya Ryokan was very clean and well-kept, even though the hotel is apparently more than a 100 years old. The staff had excellent service and allowed us to check in at 2pm once the room was ready (I had read elsewhere about the rigidity of...More

    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.
