It has a very small entrance but one can't miss it. The front desk staff were amazing. Our room, lobby, halls etc were very clean. It is quite near the subway and bus stops. The river is only a km or so away by walking...More

Perfect location for seeing Kyoto tourist spots. Reasonably priced, clean, good sized rooms. Showing its age, but well kept. Would stay here again. Breakfast was ok with a moderate selection. Handy that the Starbucks had a back door into the lobby.
We travelled in April as part of a tour group. The hotel is centrally located with plenty of eating places within a short walk. Reasonable sized rooms. Good buffet breakfast. Adequate lifts. Smokey basement bar.

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.
Does this hotel have washing machines on site for guests to do laundry?

No they do not, or least they didn't when I was there in Oct 2016. I emailed them prior to our departure & they responded very quickly. I believe they do have a laundry service but these are not self service coin machines.
