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.

Great hotel and reasonably priced. Room and bathroom were both surprisingly large, especially for Japan. The hotel is located in a lively nightlife area and within walking distance to many activities. Kyoto is a great place to visit and my only regret was that we didn't have

It's a stone throw away from Nishiki markets, and just above a subway. The accommodation is cosy, comfortable and contained all the amenities. Couldn't fault the staff and the view was amazing! Wouldn't hesitate to return.

This was our third hotel in Kyoto as we sought to experience different parts of this amazing city. What a find! Tranquil and elegant in a very high trafficked (translated:touristy) part of town. Given the quietude of our first two hotel locations, this was a different, fun

Great location, great staff, great room, comfortable beds, nice desk area. Nice bathroom with shower and tub (plus bath salts) although somewhat small sink area. Near subway lines making it easy to get around.

Centrally located, friendly staff, all-in-all a perfect hotel to stay in if you are lucky enough to be going to Kyoto. Do not expect huge rooms or anything, but the sheets are crispy-clean and the beds so comfy, with a nice bathroom too. We loved the Royal Park! You can walk

Superior twin with extra bed
I do know about Higashiyama but for Arashiyama, I would strongly recommend the train because it is quite a distance. The train is faster than the buses and do not get caught in traffic.

Don’t ever stay here. The attitude from the hotel staffs are horrible and they would go all way out to charge you even if you have already paid. They use threatening method by telling you that they will not allow you to check in. Stay away from this hotel.

You probably don’t need to purchase it before hand since the price is the same as you buy it before or when you get to Japan. You can stop by at any of the JR station to buy the tickets or ask your hotel concierges to help you find the nearest places. They take credit card for tickets, but make sure to bring enough cash since most of local places in Kyoto only take cash.

"Choose the twin beds rather than one double - it makes for a bigger room!"
"The only inerest of this hotel is it's location"
"Premium Floor"
"My room overlooked a Burger King. I don’t think there really are rooms with a view in this hotel."
"book VIP floors if possible budget-wise and away from the elevator for great sleep."
