The hotel is very run down with holes in walls and things broken/torn or not working. It was the only place we stayed that had spiders and ants, and we assumed it was because it was also quite dirty including in the breakfast room. Staff...More
It is one of the two hotels I stayed in Kyoto during my autumn foliage trip in Japan. The hotel is situated inside the historical building facing the river. It gives you real-life experience of how people live in the past. Location is perfect with...More

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.
