There is no elevator. The beds are not very comfortable but the room is clean with bathroom inside. There is air conditioned. It is about 7 minutes from the Tambaguchi train station and about 12 minutes from Kyoto Station, so, the location is OK. The price is good for Japan.

a kind and very helpful owner/receptionist, who speaks good english; conventient location near bus stop and kyoto station; rooms tidy, but a little run-down, with tiny bathrooms; efficient air-conditioning; very steep stairs, no elevator; very reasonable prices; residential neighbourhood, quiet and easy going; a recommendable place of good value

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
