Very modest hotel and very small room with little place to live for 5 nights.
Breakfasts are modest but great location, close to the center which can be reached in 15 minutes on foot and at the stop of several bus lines. Overall acceptable due...More
Located within walking distance of the Gojo entertainment area & some other interesting sites. There is a bus stop nearby & the hotel has a bus ticket vending machine on their premises. Good selection of restaurants nearby. Rooms are a bit dated but are clean...More

Pros: Cheap for the location – though we did visit in low season. The lobby has a vending machine with alcohol and a washing machine.
Cons: We booked a non-smoking room but it stunk of smoke – especially the bathroom. Everything was very run down...More
The hotel room was quite dated and in need of refurbishment. The bathroom shower curtain was so mouldy. The bed was so ridiculously hard, felt like sleeping on concrete. The location was ok, a 20 ish minute walk to the station.
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.

In front of Kyoto train station there is an information office. They will advice you exactly which bus to take. It stops maybe a minute walk away from hotel. If you'll stay longer in Kyoto I advice you to buy a day bus... More

Enjoy the city, it's wonderful.
