Certificate of Excellence
Enjoy our hotel's modern Japanese design as you explore the historic capital. We are located in the heart of Kyoto, with easy access to all major tourist destinations. Step outside and it's only a short walk to Nijo Castle or Yasaka Shrine. Step inside and take in an undeniably Japanese, yet modern, decor. Perhaps that's why we've received TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence annually since 2011.

City Centre
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.

Hotel was very comfortable and the staff easy to deal with and very helpful. Room was a little smaller than we would have liked, but well appointed. Had breakfast included and there was lots of choice. Very convenient location to get everyone and a 5 min walk to Shijo Station.

This was, without a doubt, the worst hotel experience of my nearly 1,000,000 miles traveled on six continents. I've traveled throughout Japan and other countries, staying in a range of budget to four star hotels- and have never had more hostile customer service than this

I asked the receptionist at the hotel and they organized the luggage shipping for me. It arrived the very next day they sent it and it wasn't expensive at all.

They should b providing heater as Dec will be very cold. Still you can check with the hotel. There is no room service & restaurant is open only for breakfast.The menu we saw was Japanese Cousin.You can carry small rice cooker however you will have to carry voltage converter as the voltage in Japan is 100 volts.

We arrived before check in time The reception team gave us a room that had been cleaned etc early. There were lots of luggage stored in the foyer area next to reception desk so I guess it's not a problem. Incidentally the reception desk is not on ground floor so no public access.

Hi Garfieldl , good evening to you. Many apologies, just saw yr question. No problem with the hotel keeping your luggage. When we are in Japan for a month travelling different cities, we used the courier to transfer our luggages, totally no problem! Rest assured! Enjoy yourself there!
