Mid-range hotel with all the amenities and services required. Helpful staff eager to assist.
Room is tired but clean and functional. Would love to have eaten-in as exhausted but would've been more expensive than room!
Great hotel close to shopping and food. Clean and pleasant rooms as well as a coin operated laundry for guests.
Buffet breakfast available, and cafe on ground floor.
We were on 6th floor and had a great view towards the hills.

Very convenient location. 10 mins walk to Gion and shopping streets. 2KM to JR station. Room was clean and nice, with everything we could possibly need. The hot tub and shower was very relaxing. With an early-booking discount, I'm satisfied with the price...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. 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.

Sorry, did not fly in Japan - used their brilliant rail system which was great fun. The trains are very fast, always on time, immaculate and they only sell tickets with an allotted seat so none of that standing room only... More
Sorry, did not fly in Japan - used their brilliant rail system which was great fun. The trains are very fast, always on time, immaculate and they only sell tickets with an allotted seat so none of that standing room only. Try it, quicker and more fun than flying.
