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 Okura is a well known, centrally located hotel. Its central location is a clear asset. A bit worn, but the rooms clean and spacious. The staff were attentive. I did not eat at the hotel (except breakfast which was adequate, but not outstanding) as there are so many

飯店有五星級水準,飯店內咖啡廳主管服務只有一星級水準,員工服務態度破壞了旅客旅遊興致. 飯店位置交通便利,景觀房都有空氣清淨和加濕器,床墊部分塌陷,淋浴水力大溫度夠 We went to the coffee shop in the hotel, one of the manager was impolite, sort of ruined our family fun for the night.

Superb Hotel with excellent staff who were all pleased to help. Service was five stars from the moment we gor out of the taxi. The courtesy shuttle to the airport was a great service and so easy to reserve. Highly recommend for service, location and quality.

Clean, Efficient Hotel in reasonable location and taxis usually waiting outside. There is no "wow" factor involved with any one element and I would not rely on concierge advice for restaurants and otherwise. For a high end hotel, this was generally a disappointment.

We took the hotel shuttle to and from the special lounge near the train station, which was great! The hotel was beautiful and in a great location for getting around the city by foot or by subway. Hotel breakfast was great with a beautiful view over the river.

If it is just one room with two queen beds, that might be difficult for you. If you stay at a-twin-beds-room with a small living room with sofa without separation between those two, you may stay with your two children. Kyoto Hotel Okura is one of the best hotels in central Kyoto.

There are two beds in the room instead of one, twin beds and 2 single beds are the same.

Twin room just means two smaller beds instead of one large one. I would guess the rooms would be very similar in price but best to check with hotel directly.

Hi, I had no reason to go to the convention center when I visited so I used Google maps to see public transit options. Put the convention center into Google . Click on the map that appears and use the Get Directions function to see transit to the Okura. That's the little bus icon. You get a tap card for public transit and load it with yen. Then you just tap and use for all buses/trains etc. You can use the same card in other Japanese cities like Tokyo. You could also just take a taxi. They are very reliable and very honest. It is about a 20min drive.
